    The Humane Society of North Texas is sending nearly 90 dogs to the East Coast Saturday morning to help them improve their chances of finding forever homes.

    The Humane Society will partner with the ASPCA Animal Relocation Team and Wings of Rescue to fly 87 dogs and puppies to animal shelters in New Jersey and Delaware.

    To help it prepare for a busy puppy and kitten season, the Humane Society of North Texas said it tries to move adoptable pets "of all ages and size" to shelters with more space.

    "St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey and Brandywine Valley SPCA in Delaware are Letting the Dogs Out," said Cassie Lackey, director of communications at the Humane Society of North Texas. "Pet overpopulation is rampant here in the southern states, but northern states don't struggle with overcrowded shelters like we do in North Texas. We couldn’t be more excited to know all these precious pooches are going to a final destination where there is a great need for companion pets."

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.
