Pet Rescue Operation: 100 pets now looking for forever home in southeast Wisconsin
SOUTHEAST Wis. (CBS 58) -- There are 100 pets in southeast Wisconsin that are now looking for a new place to live.
Multiple humane societies from across Wisconsin charted a plane and flew in the animals.
They are bringing in pets that are considered at-risk from other shelters across the country. Some of the animals will be up for adoption very soon.
"It's a lot but it's not overwhelming. Most of us will be able to have these dogs out and through our systems and up for adoption right away, this weekend. We have some cats too, so don't forget the cats," said Jennifer Smieja with the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County.
Similar operations have been done to get pets out of dangerous areas. That includes shelters hit by hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
