24 Chihuahuas were flown to Popcorn Park from a hoarding situation in Gates NC. They arrived today courtesy of Pilots for Paws. Carla Johnson of Chihuahua Rescue & Transport, Inc. became aware of the chihuahuas in need and began making calls late last month, one of the calls came into Assoc Humane Soc’s Popcorn Park and arrangements started to fall into place for saving them. The plans really came together when Pilot Matthew Kiener from Pilots for Paws offered his services. They all arrived today at Robert Miller Air Park in Berkeley Twp around 3 pm.

And then once at the shelter they were brought to our clinic and given health exams, and any vaccines that may have been needed before going into their specially set up kennels full of comforters
