New Year, New Homes! Sampson & Delilah’s Transport Tale

In mid-December, we received a call from a partner-in-rescue about two young pups that were found on the side of the road by animal control. In order to prevent them from having to be exposed to shelter life at such a young age, we immediately claimed them to be a part of our Hearts to Home transport program. What is the Hearts to Home transport program and why do we have it? Our volunteer coordinator, Megan, can give you a quick explanation in the video below!

After a volunteer picked up the two pups, Sampson and Delilah arrived at Second Chance Pet Adoptions. They were a bit scared from all the change, but excited for the attention and love they were getting! That evening, they went to their temporary foster homes for a couple of weeks until they were ready to be transported to their committed rescue up north. Take a look at this adorable TikTok of them choosing their collars (of course, holiday collars!).

After spending the pawlidays in warmth, peace, and love in their foster homes, transport day finally came! Sampson and Delilah were on the road to their second chance at life.

On January 3, only ONE DAY after transport, Sampson and Delilah went to their forever homes! Thanks to our transport program, volunteers, and rescue partners up North, we were able to solidify homes for Sampson and Delilah before they even arrived.
