Southern Pets Come North for Homes

Do you want a dog with a drawl or a Dixie-born kittie?

Georgia shelters sent 139 dogs and 24 cats on the road for a three-day pet "super adoption" sponsored by the SPCA of Connecticut.

Adoptable dogs and cats are in short supply in New England, where more people spay and neuter their pets, and the harsh winters cut down the stray population.

Roswell-based Southern Hope Humane Society sent 72 dogs. A Paulding County animal shelter sent up black Lab-mix puppies Friday.

By Sunday, half of all the animals had new homes.
