Tri-County Animal Rescue Takes in 68 Dogs From Alabama

Two weeks ago, the crew from Tri-County Animal Rescue in Boca Raton raced up to Alabama to rescue nearly 70 dogs. Today, the first group is ready to go to their forever homes.

Susan Goldsmith, the founder of the no-kill shelter, said she found out that a high-kill shelter was going to be getting rid of dozens of dogs in Dothan, Alabama when she sprung into action.

“These were young, viable, healthy animals,” she said. “But they didn’t have a spot for them and they said that’s it. and when we heard about it that’s when we got in our van and rescued them all.”

For two weeks, the dogs have been quarantined and treated for kennel cough and other common ailments that animals in close quarters can contract. This week, 16 of the dogs were deemed healthy and ready to be adopted out.

The staff at Tri-County Animal Rescue welcomed Boca magazine to come to the shelter to meet the “Bama Babes,” as they’re called, and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with them as we did!
