Sixty-seven Chihuahuas and other large and small dogs under 20 pounds will get another shot at a happy life this Saturday thanks to a large-scale adoption effort set up by the Animal Humane Society, the Michigan Humane Society and the nonprofit Wings of Rescue. 

Wings of Rescue will be flying homeless animals from Fresno, California to St. Paul where staff from AHS will be waiting to receive them.

Sixty-seven out of 113 animals in Wings of Rescue's care will be dropped off in St. Paul, and the remaining 46 will continue on to Ypsilanti, Michigan, according to an AHS release. 

The transport program brings animals from western and southern states, where shelters are inundated with animals, to Minnesota. It is believed to have saved more than 9,000 animal lives, according to the release. 

The public can check the AHS website to see animals as they become available for adoption after they are spayed or neutered and receive any necessary behavioral and veterinary care.
