Texas Dogs Arrive in Vermont

Texas dogs are looking for new homes

Williston, Vt. - Early Thursday morning volunteers from All Breed Rescue arrived home from Texas with 34 new furry friends in tow.

Scarlett Clark one of the Volunteers who traveled to Texas says “We just came in this morning with the dogs. The trip was a little rough on them which I totally understand. It’s 38 plus hours you’re in a new space, you’re in a moving vehicle and there’s all these other dogs around you." 

About a week ago eleven complete strangers loaded up a truck full of donations and headed to hurricane ravished Texas.

Whitney Troy-Vowell was one of the organizers of the trip. He says that Texas has a long road to recovery, “It was staggering to see that still many days’ later houses under water. One road that we drove there was almost ten inches of water that we had to drive through"

These thirty four pups are adjusting to life in Vermont... Where it’s a little colder than Texas.

The dogs brought to Vermont aren't dogs that were rescued from Hurricane Harvey. They were dogs that were already in the shelter waiting to find homes.

Troy-Vowell says “when the situation becomes one that you know unfortunately these owners aren’t going to find their dogs and they’re going to have to go to shelters somewhere but there no space in Houston"

Boomer, Nemo and all the other dogs are all up for adoption at All Breed Rescue in Williston and are all looking for new homes here in Vermont.
