Millions of rescue dogs from the rural South have been transported to new homes thanks to the tireless efforts of a grassroots network of dog rescuers. When Hurricane Katrina left more than 250,000 pets stranded, the infrastructure of modern pet transport for a nationwide dog rescue effort was born. Since then, individual volunteers, transporters, shelters and rescue groups have created a movement to place millions of southern dogs in areas of the country with high demand for adoption but low supply.
"No, they won't be handed out with tickets, but presumably seeing rescue dogs placed in new homes will make you smile all the same." -New York Times
