The Idaho Humane Society reports it is prepared to welcome 80 dogs as part of a multi-state rescue effort.

Some 800 puppies and cats from California animal shelters left Los Angeles aboard 22 airplanes Nov. 20, heading to Idaho and five other states in an airlift organized by the Wings of Rescue group. As many as 200 more rescued animals were scheduled to be airlifted on Saturday.

The rescue effort—the largest of its kind for Wings of Rescue—will take animals from overcrowded California shelters and transfer them to no-kill shelters in other states.

The Idaho Humane Society said the dogs will be available for adoption Friday, Nov. 27 at the Dorman Street shelter. As part of the Nov. 27 "Black Friday" shopping craze, IHS said it will also offer discounts on adoption fees. Adoptions can be secured at the shelter on Dorman and at the PetSmart Adoption Center on Milwaukee Street.

Wings of Rescue, based in Woodland Hills, Calif., says it saves thousands of animals from euthanasia each year. IHS says it works with the organization on a regular basis. In the past year, IHS has transferred-in more than 860 rescue animals.
