On June 16th, 2008, CAN-DO be transporting nearly 100 dogs from an overcrowded animal shelter in Northern California. The dogs were to be euthanized in a week if they couldn’t be moved to a no-kill shelter with available space.

Britt Gage contacted CAN-DO after reading about our animal transports out of the Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina. After speaking with Britt, CAN-DO was more than happy to take the assignment.

CAN-DO will be using three air-conditioned extended cargo vans supported by a volunteer crew of six to take the dogs to ‘Puppy Porch’ in St. Paul Minnesota. Puppy Porch is a 501c3 no kill rescue group of volunteers who foster animals pending adoption.

To ensure our success, Bob Putnam, who has worked with Eric Klein & CAN-DO in the past on post-Katrina rebuilding projects, will travel with the group. This will be Putnam’s fourth animal evacuation project with CAN-DO.
