    Dozens of puppies and their mothers left Fort Worth Saturday morning headed to Florida to find "forever homes."

    The Humane Society of North Texas has received more pets in the month of January than they normally do and the organization is running out of space to keep them all, said director of communications Cassie Lackey.

    Lackey said Cloud Nine Rescue Flights and Wings of Rescue are the flight partners who stepped up to transport the animals to Fort Lauderdale, which will free up space at the Fort Worth shelter.

    In 2019, the Humane Society of North Texas has seen a 55 percent increase in puppy intakes and a 115 percent increase in kitten intakes, Lackey said. The HSNT is bracing for a busier than usual spring.
