The Southern Rescue Pet Pipeline
It's an increasingly common way Vermonters get their pets: dogs brought up from so-called "high-kill" shelters in Southern states to find homes here. It saves animals' lives, but can also pose challenges: from disease to behavior problems to insufficient vetting of potential owners. We're looking at the Southern pet pipeline.

We're joined by Dr. Susan McMillan, veterinarian and owner of the Old North End Veterinary Clinic and Vet to Pet Mobile Veterinary Service in Burlington. She serves on the board of directors of the Humane Society of Chittenden County. Also by Wes Gibbs, volunteer program and transportation coordinator for Potter's Angels Rescue.
