Within 24 hours, the puppies an independent pilot picked up the pups from the Herbert Smart airport taking them to Blackshear, Georgia where caretakers will provide temporary shelter.
Grier says it’s a cause close to her heart.

According to Young, the puppies will complete a two-week quarantine process. After, rescue workers at the Delco SPCA adoption center in Pennsylvania will care for all six puppies until they find new homes.
