They had no idea they were about to be fitted into a small plane and whisked off to New York City, where they will meet their new foster families before heading to their new forever homes. They were just happy to be out of their cages and hanging out with friends.

The shelter dogs were sent to Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, which works to find new homes for animals at open intake shelters across the country.
