Dozens of dogs that have been in local shelters are headed for new homes.  Sixty-eight dogs were loaded up onto a truck this morning by a local group called the Faith and Hope Foundation.  They work with animal rescues and animal care services to find permanent homes for dogs in their care.

Forty-five of these dogs came from ACS.  All of them are going to forever homes in Portland, Oregon, Washington State and even Canada.  Organizers of this effort say they can still use help.

“We can always use foster homes and what that is is people take them in, it costs them no money at all whatsoever. We have coordinators that make sure they have everything they need, we make all the vetting appointments but the more fosters that we have, the more dogs we can keep placed and get ready to go,” said Connie Bowen, Director for Faith & Hope Foundation.

These pups will arrive at their new homes Sunday.  Another trip like this is scheduled for the second week of August.
