PET Transport Fever START Transport July 25 2013

Riverside County California Animal Services and the Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team (S.T.A.R.T.), a Los Angeles-based nonprofit, charitable organization, teamed up yet again for another big pet-transport day on July 25, 2013.

All the pets featured in this short video traveled to Pacific Northwest-based organizations that have room for pets. Some of the dogs will head to foster homes. Some will be adopted the moment they arrive.

This transport also received assistance by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and Live Oak Bank.

The transports are a major life-saving method performed by Riverside County. The county shelter and its employees recognize the critical role rescue groups, such as S.T.A.R.T., play in everyone’s goal to try to save as many lives as possible.

START Rescue wrote at their news blog on July 26, saying the  “Transport arrived safely in Oregon and WA, with a total of 118 dogs and 3 cats on board, who get to begin their new lives. Each one of these animals would no longer be alive if it wasn’t for the teamwork of so many kind individuals.”

  1. I see many cute young small dogs and puppies transported,they are the most adoptable. Did this leave another California shelter full of difficult to adopt pit bulls? Hard to believe that these “rescued” cuties were the cause of the over crowding.

      • I’d be critical – these shelters and rescues only take the cute little puppies Ever wonder how there’s always an abundance of these little ones to ship out? How about senior dogs? There were 2 just listed in LA Shelter that no one would take But noooo, those won’t make money for any rescue taking them

        These animals aren’t always being saved – a lot of times they’re being MADE at the shelters just so they have more animals to place. Start checking facts people – but do your own research and not just what you hear from animal rights groups. Their supposed pet overpopulation is over
