KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Wayside Waifs came to the rescue of more than a dozen animals in Texas this week.
Sixteen homeless dogs arrived in Kansas City Tuesday afternoon from a town near Houston.
The animal shelter there couldn’t afford to stay open, and the dogs were in danger of being put down.
So an animal rescue group stepped in to bring the dogs to Wayside Waifs and ultimately find homes.
“The animals aren’t nearly as in bad shape as the conditions,” said Scotlund Haisley, president of the Animal Rescue Corps. “The shelter needed to close down.
“That was not a good place for these animals to be.”
The 16 dogs will be available for adoptions as soon as their medical evaluations are finished.
