Some of the puppies were found abandoned by a hunter in the woods of Tennessee.
That hunter brought the dogs to a high kill shelter down there. That’s where the folks at Shultz’s stepped in.
They work with another animal rescue group in Tennessee. Once a week, those volunteers drive rescued dogs up to Maryland. That’s where they meet the people from Shultz’s in a Toys R Us parking lot, to make the exchange.
