Los Angeles huskies up for adoption
Sun, surf, sands, and stars – the boardwalks and beaches of greater Los Angeles sound to us like the place to be, but for husky dogs already on death row in Hollywood animal shelters, the heat can be hell.
But Alberta’s cooler climate sounds like paradise to a husky with its fur, so the new partnership between the Drumheller and District Humane Society and the LAbased non-profit Hollywood Huskies offers an elegant solution.
The Drumheller humane society has begun accepting Siberian huskies and huskymixes from the organization, dogs who were either found wandering the streets of LA or were facing euthanasia on death row, in order to place them in forever homes in the Drumheller area, where the breed is more popular and better suited.
The agreement has seen the adoption of three huskies so far since the humane society and Holywood Huskies made the connection two months ago.
Karma, who was found walking in LA county with a belt around her neck, was likely used as a breeding dog and was either dumped or escaped. She already has a family waiting to adopt her when she arrives.
Or Apollo, who Hollywood Huskies saved from certain euthanasia after he was found on the streets like Karma.
Humane society president Kelcy Travis said the relationship is beneficial for both parties.
“It’s a good partnership, these dogs are days, weeks, or hours away from being put down and huskies get adopted quickly here,” said Travis.
