The dogs are being sent north from Houston's K-9 Angels Rescue to the Humane Society of Delaware County. The project is being coordinated from Ohio by Natalie Yeager, a former Houston resident, WCMH reported.

“I’m thinking, I have people asking for puppies to adopt and we’re having trouble finding enough for all the people who want them here,” she told WCMH.

The trip from Houston took 17 hours, and the dogs arrived Thursday night, WSYX reported. Once the puppies are cleared medically they will be available for adoption, WCMH reported. Until then they will reside in foster homes.

“We are going to keep adults here. We’re going to keep some puppies here also to have them fixed, spayed and neutered,” Yeager told WSYX. “Some of the younger ones are being sent out into foster until they’ve had their shots and they’re ready for adoption.”
