Dozens of unwanted dogs in South Carolina are being flown to other states for possible adoption, thanks to a service offered by a Pennsylvania group.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports Cloud Nine Rescue Flights of Williamsport, Pa., has made ten flights to York County, picking up between 15 and 20 dogs each time.
It's part of the group's effort to give unwanted dogs a chance of finding new homes. It reduces the number of dogs that must be euthanized in York County.
A number of dogs were flown to shelters in New Jersey and Maine last month.
Cloud Nine founder and president Ted DuPuis says more than half of the 32 flights so far have been to the Carolinas. He says his volunteers have had no problem raising the $2,500 for each flight.
