Volunteers in San Antonio are helping send dozens of Chihuahuas and other homeless dogs to Canada in hope of a better life.
The dogs are being transported by van to escape living on the streets or being put down.
Debbie Davis, a volunteer working with the group, gets emotional when talking about helping the pups.
“Too many dogs die in this city every day, and we are so fortunate that we have groups like these ladies and all the ones we work with to get our dogs out of Texas," Davis said. "To get them up north where people respect and love them and care for them. We have a mentality here that doesn't respect the dogs and that's why I do it."
