Clear the Shelters! Rescue Transport to Save Over 350 Dogs From Euthanasia
...and Modern Dog will be there to help! (We're so excited!)


We couldn't be more thrilled... Modern Dog is about to participate in a rescue transport to save more than 350 shelter animals from euthanasia!

On August 19th and 20th, over a hundred volunteers and dozens of animal groups will participate in Animal Aid USA’s largest rescue of the year, saving over 350 animals on the euthanasia list at Georgia shelters!

Animal Aid USA co-founders Lorenzo Borghese of Bachelor fame and Karen Talbot, along with their dedicated team of volunteers—including Modern Dog!—will drive from New Jersey to Georgia to save animals from Liberty, Pierce, Long, Murray and Laurens county shelters.

Lorenzo (who is a prince, for the record) explains how the rescue goes down:

“Animal Aid USA provides all the necessary medical care needed, including vaccines, heartworm treatment and spay or neuter. The animals then go to our temporary housing center, and when they are ready to be adopted we transport them to our receiving rescues or private adopters across the U.S.”

It's a big operation.

“We’ve increased our resources this month so we can rescue more animals,” shares Talbot. “While 350 new lives will be saved, we will also be transporting the animals who are already at our housing center. Pilots N Paws will fly 75 dogs who are ready for adoption, and the others at the center will be loaded on caravans and transported to our rescue partners in Tampa, Florida and the tri-state area who will find them forever homes.” 

Over 14,000 animals have been saved since Animal Aid USA was founded in 2012. Whether by wheels or by wings, the four-legged companions will be traveling in style with a donated shelter blanket by Kona Benellie, and embarking on their new journey to find the loving homes they deserve.

*Animal Aid USA is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization providing education, awareness and resources to the public in an effort to empower positive change for shelter animals. Through monthly transports from high kill shelters to qualified rescues across the U.S., to its spay/neuter clinic providing free sterilization to low income communities, Animal Aid USA strives to improve the lives of homeless animals nationwide.
