Mike & Kathy Nobles run the Going Home Animal Rescue & Transport. They typically rescue dogs and bring them to places like Chicago, Minneapolis and Denver.
"Colorado, typically, has been very good about adopting shelter dogs and dogs that have been abandoned," Mike Nobles, owner of "Going Home Animal Rescue" said.
The Nobles teamed up with five rescue groups in Colorado to provide shelters for some 55 puppies. The Animal Rescue of the Rockies.org, Colorado K-9 Rescue, Every Creature Counts, Hope for Animals and Ft. Morgan Humane Society all participated in the rescue of the dogs.
Rescue shelter employees say the puppies were all taken from "high kill" shelters from all across Oklahoma.
"They don't deserve to die, and as long as we have got some way to help them, and as long as we have got some way to do it, I think we owe it," Nobles said.
Workers say the dogs are all in need of veterinary care to ensure they have the proper shots before they are adopted. The dogs will also be either spayed/neutered and micro-chipped.
