LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM)- The city of LaGrange Animal Services partner with the Puppy Pipeline to help hundreds of animals find loving homes.

Puppy Pipeline of Georgia Rescue is a non-profit organization that transports puppies, kittens, dogs, and cats to the Northeast and Upper Midwest to no-kill shelters that will find them loving forever homes.

In the South, there is a low demand, high supply for animals and in the Northeast and upper Midwest, there is a high demand, low supply.

In the month of May, the city was able to place 230 animals on the Puppy Pipeline making the total number in 2018, 457.

“The need for animals up north is in high demand due to the northern states having such a strict spay-neuter law. Once the animals reach their destination they are spayed or neutered and placed up for adoption,” said City of LaGrange Animal Services Supervisor Chris Bussey.

Most of the animals that have been sent out this month were kittens. The animals sent on the Puppy Pipeline spend less than a week on the adoption floor before they find their forever home.
