There are 22 dog pens at Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter.
When those pens are full and the maximum 50 dogs are being housed, decisions have to be made.
And dogs have to be euthanized.
But one group of volunteers is working to give stray dogs another chance... in Chicago.
For over a year, Humane Society volunteers have been transporting shelter dogs from Harrison County to rescue and adoption agencies in Chicago.
“It’s just been wonderful,” volunteer Jenny McKemie said about the operation called Chicago Rescue.
