Dallas Woman Saves Dogs from Certain Death

SPOKANE, Wash. - What Dallas Texas doesn't want... Spokane is willing to take. A partnership between a Dallas animal rescue and Spokanimal is saving the lives of dogs and cats that need new homes.

Dallas Texas animal shelters take in 30,000 dogs and cats a year, only 5,000 make it out alive through adoption or rescue. The remaining 25,000 are euthanized.

But Tawana Couch with a Dallas rescue called Society for Companion Animals found Spokanimal and now flies adoptable pets to Spokane to find new families. Couch says these animals have been cleared by veterinarians and are ready for adoption but the shelters just aren't getting anyone adopting their dogs.

But in Spokane the demand for small and medium dogs is so great there are hundreds of people who want smaller pets on waiting lists at Spokanimal. In fact, both Spokanimal and Scraps haven't euthanized an adoptable dog in years.

Gail Mackie who's run Spokanimal for years says this partnership is a match made in heaven.

Spokanimal and Society for Companion Animals could use our help. They would love any working dog crates to get the animals from Dallas to Spokane. If you're able to donate to the cause - it does cost several hundred dollars a trip to get these dogs here to the Inland Northwest for their new homes.

You can call Spokanimal at 534-8133 to help out or visit the Society for Companion Animals website.
