The handsome hound mix in the photo below is one-year-old Sam. Earlier this year, he was picked up as a stray in Tennessee’s Campbell County. Sadly, no one came to claim him.
But fate had a plan for Sam. He was one of several lucky Campbell County pups chosen for transport to New York!
The GoNorth Animal Transport Collaborative is a project of the non-profit group, Peaceful Kingdom. They pull at-risk dogs from perpetually overcrowded shelters in east Tennessee and deliver them to northern shelters and rescues where their chances of adoption are much higher.
The system definitely worked for Sam — he was adopted soon after arriving in Wantagh, NY and is now living happily ever after with a wonderful family!
