BOISE -- Idaho is helping out animals from another state.

Seventy-seven small breed dogs arrived at the Idaho Humane Society via airplane from Southern California Monday afternooon, giving them hope for a new life in the Gem State.

Many of these dogs are rescued right before they are scheduled to be euthanized.

Their trip started out at the Jackson Jet Center where it took a pilot two hours to fly them from Los Angeles to Boise.

This program is called Wings of Rescue, and as you can imagine, it can't be easy to fly with 77 dogs on board, but they all did arrive in Idaho safely.

There are lots of smalls breeds to choose from including -- Chihuahuas, terriers, poodles and shih tzu-type mixes. The dogs will be looked over by a veterinarian before they are put up for adoption.

If you are looking for a pet, these dogs will be ready for adoption starting on Friday, May 3rd.

For more information, contact the Idaho Humane Society at 208-475-0855.
