Transporting Shelter Dogs from Indiana to New England Shelters Where They Find Adoptive Homes

 

Next transport leaving Indiana on Thursday, August 7, 2014

The CanINE Express Transport Project humanely transports shelter dogs from south central Indiana, -- areas with extreme pet overpopulation and high euthanasia rates due to kennel overcrowding -- to shelters in areas in our country where there is a need for well-socialized, healthy dogs.  This interstate project, that began with its maiden voyage in December 2004 and currently has more than 30 partner shelters, has successfully transported over 9,575 Indiana shelter dogs.  A benefit that wasn’t visualized at the project’s beginning is that our partners have shared best sheltering practices including spay/neuter education, medical care, promoting adoptions,  increasing volunteerism, and political activism to build and grow state legislation related to animal issues.  

Our project does not transport shelter dogs to private adopters; only to our receiving shelter partners in Cleveland and the Northeast.

Since December, 2004, the number of Indiana shelter dogs transported to our New England Shelter and Rescue Partners: 8,146; 1,429 to the Cleveland Animal Protective League and Geauga Humane Society's Rescue Village, for a total of 9,575.
