WATCH: Canadians head south of the border to adopt some furry friends


VANCOUVER — B.C. families drove across the border today, to collect some new companions.

More than a 100 dogs were flown into Bellingham from California, where they were rescued from shelters that euthanize animals. Canadians were invited to take part, and give the animals their “furr-ever” homes.

“This is unique because this time we invited the British Columbia¬†folks to come down and adopt those dogs,” Yehuda Netanel of Wings of Rescue, told Global News. “In British Columbia there are virtually no small dogs available in the shelters.”

Next time, the organizers say they will try to fly the pets straight to Canada.
