Many Strays and Homeless Dogs in Connecticut's Shelters are Rescued From Other States
If you're looking for a dog on Petfinder.com, you'll see this again and again. You click on a likely-looking dog offered by a Connecticut shelter and read this: "Ralphie is still in Georgia," or "Fifi is still in Kentucky." You could call it an underhound railroad — for the past decade or more, local rescues have been importing pets from below the Mason-Dixon Line.
