An airlift of dogs and cats brought 157 animals from overcrowded shelters in Southern California to Hillsboro Airport. Amanda Giese, with the Panda Paws Rescue in Vancouver, says all of these animals would have been euthanized. The animals will go to eight rescue groups. Veterinarians will examine them and spay or neuter them before they're put up for adoption. The group wings of rescue coordinates the airlift. It’s the largest number of animals flown to Oregon since 100 dogs were brought to the state in December.
