LaGrange, Ga. May 30, 2018 – The City of LaGrange Animal Services Partnership with the Puppy Pipeline is helping hundreds of animals find loving homes.
The Puppy Pipeline of Georgia Rescue is a 501© 3 non-profit organization that transports puppies, kittens, dogs and cats to the Northeast and Upper Midwest to no kill shelters that will find them loving forever homes.
In the South, there is a low demand, high supply for animals and in the Northeast and upper Midwest there is a high demand, low supply.
Just in the month of May, the City was able to place 230 animals on the Puppy Pipeline making the total number for 2018 457. That’s nearly as many as 2017 when the City placed 497 animals on the Puppy Pipeline.
The City of LaGrange Animal Services is proud to be a partner of the Puppy Pipeline since its inception in 2007.
“The need for animals up north is in high demand due to the northern states having such a strict spay neuter law. Once the animals reach their destination they are spayed or neutered and placed up for adoption,” said City of LaGrange Animal Services Supervisor Chris Bussey .
“Most of the animals that we have sent out this month have been kittens. We have seen such an increase this month with transports going out this month because kitten season is upon us.”
The animals sent on the Puppy Pipeline spend less than a week on the adoption floor before they find their forever home.
