Animal lovers rejoice! The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society need your help rehoming 16 dogs from the United States.

The pups, which arrived in Ontario on May 19, were brought from North Carolina in an attempt to help free up space at animal shelters in the south.

"There are many animal shelters in the United States that are at, or nearing capacity, which means that they don't have space to help any more animals that show up on their doorstep," says Bonnie Bishop, director and transfer team lead at the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. "With 12 animal centres across the province, the Ontario SPCA has the capacity to help."

The dogs will be available for adoption at animal centres in Stouffville, Barrie and Brockville. While there is no specific date when they will become available, the SPCA says to keep an eye on their website.*

You can view what adorable pups, as well as other critters, are up for adoption, on the company's website.
