AUGUSTA — Ten puppies rescued from a crowded Alabama shelter where they would have been euthanized are available, starting today, to be adopted at Kennebec Valley Humane Society.

The Augusta animal shelter partnered with Puppy Pipeline to rescue the dogs and have them transported to Augusta.

The puppies would have been euthanized at the crowded Alabama shelter if they had not been transferred, according to Hillary Roberts, executive director of the Augusta shelter.

The puppies include four shepherd mixes, four redbone hound mixes, one lab mix and one boxer mix. They have been in the Augusta shelter for two weeks where they were cared for, socialized and observed. Each has been spayed or neutered, received routine vaccinations, and had health evaluations.

They will be available for adoption starting at 11 a.m. today. The adoption fee for the puppies is $250.

Roberts said the shelter was fortunate to have the kennel space and she is confident the shelter will be able to find them loving homes.
