I'm Glad There Are People in the World Like This...

As Aretha Franklin says, Rescue Me
Hidden in the "Pet" section of my local paper comes this article: ("Unwanted pets get taken for a ride to keep them alive.Volunteers run a interstate 'railway' to save animals facing death here")... about an incredibly passionate group of folks who have started The Global Rescue Welfare League, or GROWL. They have formed an "underground railroad" to transport animals from overcrowded "high-kill shelters" where they face euthanasia, to shelters where animals are adopted. One of the things they do is organize a network of volunteer drivers who transport animals [in short one-hour trips] from overcrowded shelters to families who want to adopt pets. See more pictures of the rescued ones...
Learn more, donate, volunteer:

The Global Rescue Welfare League is an all volunteer org
anization which was started to help raise awareness in regards to all the homeless animals all over the world. It is our mission to help save as many innocent animals as possible while raising awareness about altering (spay and neuter) and responsible animal ownership. GROWL is directly involved in pulling animals from high kill animal shelters, coordinating volunteer transports to safety in rescues, raising funds for animals in need, educating the public on the importance of spay/neuter and assisting individuals in finding their ideal furry family member.
