On a rainy Saturday afternoon, Nina Roedeler met a van full of dogs in Queens, New York, that had made a long journey to meet their new families. She organizes rescue transports each month for Friends with Four Paws, connecting adopters with pups who were saved from high-kill shelters in Oklahoma. Check out these photos from one of her transport days, and if you’d like to see more stories like this, subcribe to All Creatures magazine.
