When ARF received word that one of the high-kill shelters it works with in South Carolina was moving and many of their dogs faced euthanasia, it was ARF to the rescue! ARF sent a team on a 14-hour journey down South to pick up 46 dogs for what we deemed Operation “Labor Day of Love.” Their first stop was the high-kill shelter and next they met up with our network of foster families. Finally, everyone was transported back to ARF where all the dogs were unloaded and will now be safe until they find their forever homes. It was the largest rescue mission ARF has ever undertaken.
These dogs will be available for adoption in the coming weeks. Our thanks to our rescue partners Andrea Walker and Patsy Topping, all of the shelter workers in South Carolina, all of our amazing foster families, our incredible volunteers, and the ARF staff.

Update: Because of the timeliness of this rescue, the South Carolina foster families were able to pull an additional 22 dogs on Labor Day. These remaining dogs will be brought to ARF at the end of September.
