It’s not every day we welcome an airplane-full of four-legged friends.
But when those dogs and cats touch down to eventually find new homes in the Northwest, it makes us feel especially warm and fuzzy.
On June 8, nearly 100 at-risk dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters in the Dallas area arrived at King County International Airport/Boeing Field to be transferred to animal organizations in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Kitsap and Skagit Counties.
There, they hope to find new, loving owners.
The program is a partnership between Freekibble and Wings of Rescue, which is helping find homes for the at-risk pooches and felines.
Without the partnership, these animals would be scheduled for euthanasia.
