Eight Puppies are Rescued and Given New Chance at Life


Thanks to the teamwork of rescuers in Tennessee and Rhode Island, eight adorable puppies are getting a second chance at life. The eight puppies were abandoned after being housed in a kill shelter in Tennessee. All of the puppies were being marked for euthanization when Cindy Rhoda came to their rescue. Rhoda, who lives just outside of Chattanooga, is no stranger to caring for and rescuing dogs. Rhoda is currently the director of an organization called Pooches on the Move which transports rescued puppies to new homes.

According to Lifewithdogs “We deliver all the way from Virginia to New Hampshire,” said Rhoda. In order to save the eight puppies though she needed someone to transport them to, luckily she has a long standing relationship with Kate Dubuque. “If it wasn’t for Kate being able to quarantine, we wouldn’t have a stop in the state of Rhode Island,” said Rhoda. Dubuque holds a state license for her Little Rhody Rescue that allows her to keep out-of-state dogs for five days. State law in Rhode Island requires this quarantine to confirm the animals’ health.

Dubuque and Rhoda have been helping each other since 2001. Rhoda used to live in Rhode Island which is how the two first met. The eight puppies that were saved this time are doing well. Four of them have already found homes and Dubuque knows the other four will have no trouble finding homes either.
