In L.A. anyway, the city & county shelters don't care who adopts - county especially would be happy if someone were to arrange some transports. They will never do it themselves, though. There's some paperwork involved to get rescue rates, but nothing crazy.

If anyone in rescue on the East coast wants to get something started, I'm happy to help on this end! There have been a few of these transports recently, some small dogs went up to Canada, and then of course the one in the article.

There's a network of pilots that fly rescues for free:

Home - Pilots N Paws

Which would be helpful. This is LA County:
Department of Animal Care & Control
Really the only shelter that doesn't have a million dogs is Agoura Hills, all the others are usually WAY overcrowded.

The Bakersfield shelter is also insanely full always, they seem to always have a surplus of med- and large-breed puppies. While puppies generally get adopted in LA, in Bakersfield a lot of them end up being put down. It's so, so sad.

Chihuahuas were definitely the most common small dog we got in here. They did tend to be snatched up pretty fast though.

All I can say is its about **** time this happened on a large scale. I've been looking at dog runs with 10-15 dogs per run for too many years. Most of them chi/ chi mix.
