Great Plains SPCA is looking for a few good families to adopt rescued pets from Louisiana.
The organization recently took in 28 dogs that lost their homes during flooding in August in Baton Rouge, La.
A team of staff and volunteers returned to SPCA’s Merriam campus Wednesday night with the dogs.
Although its shelters are currently at capacity, Great Plains president and CEO Courtney Thomas said the organization simply could not say no to the displaced pets.
Never miss a local story.
“It was a big decision, but our volunteer base has stepped up,” Thomas said.
The goal, Thomas said, is to assess each dog’s medical needs in hopes of sending them directly into foster homes.
To help accomplish that, the organization will match every dollar donated through Oct. 15.
Great Plains SPCA is also offering an adoption special for all animals.
Through Sunday, all dogs — including ones from Louisiana — and kittens are 50 percent off, and fees associated with the adoption of cats are being waived.
