New Jersey group saves 10,000 Georgia dogs

HINESVILLE,Ga. (WJCL).– In 2011, Karen Talbot made her first trip down to Hinesville to rescue 23 puppies from being put down. It was a long journey for the New Jersey native and it didn’t stop with that one road trip.

“It’s now going on five years,” explained Talbot, “We’ve been coming back every 30 days.”

Talbot teamed up with Meike Wilder of the Carpathia Paws group which helps rescue animals in the area. Every 30 days, Talbot and a caravan of volunteers along with other rescue groups take about 200 dogs up North, where they go into no-kill rescue shelters or meet their fur-ever homes.

“This month is actually the 10,000 dog,” Wilder said.

It’s about 800 miles from Hinesville to New Jersey, but it’s a trip Talbot and others will continue to make in order to save the lives of puppies like these who are anxious to make the journey.
