Next transport leaving Indiana on Thursday, June 6, 2013
The CanINE Express Transport Project humanely transports shelter dogs from south central Indiana, -- areas with extreme pet overpopulation and high euthanasia rates due to kennel overcrowding -- to shelters in areas in our country where there is a need for well-socialized, healthy dogs. This instrastate project, that began with its maiden voyage in December 2004 and currently has more than 30 partner shelters, has successfully transported over 8,583 Indiana shelter dogs. A benefit that wasn’t visualized at the project’s beginning is that our partners have shared best sheltering practices including spay/neuter education, medical care, promoting adoptions, increasing volunteerism, and political activism to build and grow state legislation related to animal issues.
Our project does not transport shelter dogs to private adopters; only to our receiving shelter partners in the Northeast.
Since December, 2004, the number of Indiana shelter dogs transported to our New England Shelter and Rescue Partners: 7,428; to the Cleveland Animal Protective League and Geauga Humane Society's Rescue Village: 1,155; for a total of 8,583.
GRANT AWARD: $17,000 from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)
to the CanINE Express Transport Program. This generous grant from the ASPCA was awarded
in January of 2013 and will be used to medically prep and spay/neuter Indiana shelter dogs prior
to transporting them to our receiving shelters in New England and Ohio. We are extremely grateful to the
ASPCA for making our Project possible.
A big thank you to the wonderful team at Enterprise Car Rental for providing our vans each month! Kudos to volunteers at the Cleveland Animal Protective League whose volunteers help us walk the dogs along the route each month! As always, many thanks to Gwen and Larry Blair for driving each month; and to Faye Ure for driving and sewing dog beds for the crates! Also, thank you to ASPCA and the PETCO Foundation for providing funding.
