Rescued dogs need temporary homes
DeKALB – TAILS Humane Society has teamed up with Petco and Petco Foundation to assist overcrowded Oklahoma and Arkansas shelters by transporting 200 adult dogs and puppies from these locations to TAILS in DeKalb. To avoid displacing local dogs, the new dogs and puppies need foster homes to care for them until they go up for adoption at mega adoption events hosted by Petco in May.
According to Beth Drake, TAILS executive director, northern Illinois doesn’t have a problem with dog overpopulation. In fact, adopters looking to bring a new puppy into their family can have a tough time finding one in a shelter and often resort to buying from a pet store, inadvertently supporting puppy mills.
“We have adopters here in the Chicagoland area who want to adopt a puppy from a shelter. We don’t have very many puppies that come to us locally, so while there is a surplus of puppies in Oklahoma, it makes a lot of sense to transport them up here for adoption,” Drake said.
