EUGENE, Ore. — Two-hundred and fifty dogs are getting a second chance at life right here in Oregon, thanks to their flight aboard the Wings of Rescue. The group transfers dogs from Southern California shelters who are on death row because of over-population. They’ve flown more than 2,000 animals out of shelters. Luv-a-Bull pitbull rescue and Luv-a-Little in Eugene received dogs from the plane. A group of pitbull-mix puppies arrived at their foster home Saturday.
“By a plane is just fascinating, that dogs who were about to get put down get an actual plane ride to safely and smoothly come to Oregon for a real life and to be rescued. It’s just amazing. They’re so lucky,” said Mandy DeGuc, Luv-a-Bull employee.
In the last couple of weeks, Luv-a-Bull has rescued multiple litters of puppies and their mothers from California shelters.
