Sussex County Dog Rescue Saves 68 Dogs from High-kill Shelters

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del.- Grass Roots Rescue received 68 dogs from high-kill shelters in Georgia and South Carolina on Saturday afternoon.

They partnered with One Love Animal Rescue for their largest single intake in Grass Roots history. Grass Roots executive director, Karli Crenshaw said, "This is huge, we are a small foster based rescue in Delaware, and we are able to bring 68 dogs to a new life."

Crenshaw says that the southern shelters have to kill often because they lack space for the high volume of dogs that come in.They say the euthanasia rates at these shelters are between 25 and 75 percent.

Once the animals arrive, they are assessed by a veterinarian, then sorted and taken to foster homes where they can be adopted.

Grass Roots is encouraging people in the community to volunteer, donate, or adopt so that these animals can live a better life.
