A “dog transport vehicle” bearing 41 dogs arrived in Boise from San Antonio Thursday, bringing the animals to shelters in Boise and Hailey.

The dogs were transported by an organization called San Antonio Pets Alive!, which works to address that city’s overpopulation problem and provide animals to other cities, according to a news release from the organization.

The “dog transport vehicle” — dubbed the “tail blazer” — left San Antonio Tuesday, with two staff members of the organization who are experienced animal care professionals and ensured the dogs’ safety during the 38-hour trip.

The animals arrived at the Idaho Humane Society in Boise and Mountain Humane in Hailey.

Most of the dogs transported north have adopters waiting for them, according to the release. If not, they generally are adopted within days of their arrival.

San Antonio Pets Alive!’s goal is to save 1,000 dogs in 2019.
