Pat Cox, the shelter manger of the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society, said the Humane Society of the United States helped facilitate the transport of 65 dogs from the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society in two trips to shelters in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Florida.
Cox said since the local shelter is overcrowded, transporting the animals to shelters with more room frees up space at home and gives those animals a better chance to get adopted.
“We don’t have to euthanize (as many). The more that we can find homes for the better we like it,” Cox said.
