Dogs from flooded Louisiana arrive in Boise

Dogs from flooded Louisiana flown to Boise

BOISE -- Dogs rescued from devastating floods in Louisiana received a warm welcome in Boise Wednesday evening.

More than 20 dogs were flown  into the City of Trees by the non profit Dog Is My Co-pilot.

Idaho Humane Society spokeswoman Allison Maier said the flooding has put a strain on Louisiana shelters.

"A lot of the shelters in that area have really been in crisis since the flooding began," she said. "Some shelters were flooded  and a lot of people have had to surrender their animals after losing everything in the floods."

Most of the dogs will be staying at the Idaho Humane Society in Boise, although a few will be transferred up to North Idaho.

According to the Idaho Humane Society, the dogs should be available for adoption beginning early next week.
