PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Shelters can’t house every animal that’s waiting to be adopted, but a non-profit organization called Animal Lifeline is working to bridge the gap.

Its “Ride To Rescue” program recently brought a number of dogs to the Pittsburgh area who were set to be euthanized in rural Tennessee.
