Transfer Stories

Crossing State Lines

The SPCA of Polk County has partnerships with shelters across the United States. In an effort to free up space, these organizations work with our volunteers to transfer dogs and cats across country, from Louisiana to Missouri to New Jersey--and to places in-between. 

Paws 4 Life

Paws 4 Life is an organization dedicated to transferring adoptable pets from the overpopulated South to other states, where dogs are in high demand. For just $10, you can secure a sponsor for an animal stuck in a crowded No-Kill shelter, or for one who is praying for help in a High-Kill shelter.
