The Humane Society of Tulsa rescued 40 to 50 dogs from Tulsa Animal Welfare after flying out 72 dogs Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Wings of Rescue and the GreaterGood.org flew 72 dogs to Washington state and Idaho. Flying out the animals cleared out the Humane Society shelters so they could take in 40 to 50 dogs before they were euthanized.
The Humane Society will put the dogs on one of their monthly flights that takes dogs to states that aren't having overpopulation problems like Oklahoma.
Officials are hoping that the monthly flights will help with their overcrowding issues.
The Humane Society says the flight costs are covered, but they still need money to take care of the animals until they are flown out, which is about $50 per dog.
