Pawmetto Lifeline's Transport program transports dogs to new homes in the Northeast. Many of the pups we send have been in the Pawmetto Lifeline system for some time and are great dogs, but for whatever reason have been overlooked here. By getting them up north, they get adopted to their forever homes very quickly. Plus, we are able to free more space to save additional dogs from death row here in South Carolina. Currently, we are partnering with North Shore Animal League in New York and other transport programs to coordiate getting dogs from the Midlands to the Northeast.
Don’t they have dogs up North?
We know what you’re thinking: “Surely they have dogs there.” Surprisingly, because of strict spay and neuter laws, pet overpopulation isn’t a problem in the Northeast like it is here, and many rescue groups there actually have waiting lists for adoptable dogs.
For instance, in 1994 the State of New Hampshire implemented a mandatory state-sponsored spay and neuter law and program that had drastic affects on the State's euthanasia rates. By the year 2000, New Hampshire reduced their euthanasia rates by 75%. Today in New Hampshire people who want to adopt pets are put on waiting lists for up to a year!
Until South Carolina enacts strict spay neuter laws Pawmetto Lifeline will continue to work with rescue groups in the Northeast and local donors to send pets to states where they will find their forever homes!
