SANDPOINT, Idaho. --- Animals from Louisiana’s disaster zones were flown across the United States to Idaho.
After horrific flooding destroyed areas in Louisiana, many animals and people were left without a home.
Thanks to Dog is My CoPilot, eight animals from Louisiana were transported to the Panhandle Animal Shelter in Idaho.
According to Dog is My CoPilot’s website, the company has saved thousands of animals lives. The company takes animals in areas of the United States where they are not wanted and relocates them to areas where they are in demand.
Mandy Evans, director of the Panhandle Animal Shelter, has worked with Dog is My CoPilot before but this time was a little different.
“We have taken animals before [from Dog is My CoPilot], but not from a disaster, this is our first time for that purpose,” Evans said.
The animals arrived last Thursday. Before the dogs are ready to be adopted, the shelter will hold on to them for 10 days to make sure they do not have any health problems.
“We will notify people by Facebook when they are ready for adoption,” said Evans.
The dogs range in color and size.
“One of the dogs is a husky but it has the coloring of a German Shepard,” said Evans. “And there is a dog with wiry hair that looks like a Chihuahua.”
“This group is the most human affectionate group of dogs we have gotten. They are really sweet,” Evans added.
If you are interested in possibly adopting one of these dogs, keep an eye out for an update on the Panhandle Animal Shelter Facebook page.
