LACONIA - More than 2 dozen puppies boarded a flight this morning from Texas to New Hampshire as part of a program called Operation Pets Alive.
The New Hampshire Humane Society help coordinate the transports and find homes for the puppies once they arrive in New Hampshire. Executive Director Marylee Gorham-Waterman says the program is paid for by generous donors both in Texas and New Hampshire. Volunteers were waiting to bring the dogs to the shelter to get checked out before going on the adoption floor.
Waterman says these dogs would most likely be euthanized if they stayed in Texas. Here in New Hampshire, she says, they will be adopted.
Pilot, Howard Turek from Texas volunteers his time and his brother owns the plane. He says it's a family effort.
The shelter expects to do these types of transports every few weeks this year and says these dogs will be ready for adoption by the middle of next week.
