Shelter, pilots team up to find pets homes
Saturday, May 26, 2012
Amelia the dog now has a new home, and it’s far from her California, Mo., roots.
Amelia is an 8-month-old shepherd/hound mix that was found as a stray in California, then turned over to the California Veterinary Clinic. The clinic is the local shelter of sorts that has a contract with the city to do animal control.
Ruth Elledge, founder of Project SNaP, Spay Neuter and Protect, helped arrange Amelia’s transport from California to the Jefferson City airport, where she met Sam Taylor, volunteer pilot with Pilots N Paws, a non-profit group that helps connect adopting or foster families with rescue dogs across the country.
