What do couples united by Cupid and more than 100 dogs from the Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) have in common?

They both were in flight on Valentine’s Day, and both were en route to happiness.

HSNT joined with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Animal Relocation Team and Wings of Rescue to transport 106 dogs to the Humane Society of Waukesha, where the animals are hoping to find their special Valentine.

“The Humane Society of North Texas wants to show extra love to our animals this Valentine’s Day,” HSNT Director of Communications Cassie Lackey said. “As we continue to run at capacity, our transport partners allow us to save the lives of two sets of animals – the animals being transported and the animals that now have a safe place in our shelter.”

This year, HSNT has seen a surge in puppies and kittens being surrendered at its shelter. Even with over 11,000 adoptions in 2018 (17 percent higher than 2017), officials say there are still more homeless pets in North Texas than available homes.

However, there seems to be a shortage of adoptable pets in the northern parts of the United States. So, to save more lives, HSNT will be transferring animals to Wisconsin.

HSNT began working with the ASPCA Animal Relocation Program in February of 2018. Since then, more than 1,000 pets have been transported to their new homes across the country.
