Dozens of dogs that were in local rescue shelters have new homes this week.

A local group called The Faith and Hope Foundation loaded up 86 shelters dogs in a truck Friday morning to take them to new homes in Oregon, Washington State and even Canada.

The group works with animal rescues and animal care services to find permanent homes for stray or abandoned dogs and say they can always use help.

“We can always use foster homes and what that is, is people take them in- it costs them no money at all whatsoever,” Connie Bowen, Director of the Faith and Hope Foundation said. “We have coordinators that make sure they have everything they need, we make all the vetting appointments but the more fosters that we have, the more dogs we can keep placed and get ready to go.”

45 of the shelter dogs came from Corpus Christi Animal Care Services.

There will be another trip like this one in the second week of August.
