16 Dogs Surrendered to Start Over Rover


Despite constant overcrowding, a central Nebraska animal rescue has had to make more room for 16 dogs in desperate need of a home.

These are a few of the dogs that were voluntarily surrendered to Start Over Rover this week.

Volunteers traveled to McCook on Tuesday to pick up the dogs that were turned over by a breeding facility so they could finish their lives in loving homes.

"When we get those calls and go to get them, we go and get them then we figure out how to make arrangements when we get back," said rescue volunteer Anne Hallert.

These calls can happen frequently, and since there were so many dogs, Grand Island's Central Humane Society was also called to help.

"We're at capacity; they were very helpful," said Anne Hallert. "But between strays and relinquishments we take as well as abuse and all of those types of things, we're always full."

The dogs will be given shots, and will be spayed and neutered. They should be available for adoption in the coming weeks.
