Dogs That Escaped California Wildfires Up For Adoption In Massachusetts

SALEM (CBS) – Dogs that managed to escape the California wildfires are set to be available for adoption in Massachusetts.

Northeast Animal Shelter says they've now taken in a total of 11 dogs from rescue partner Saving Gizmo's Friends. That shelter has been "severely affected" by the devastating fires, and they need to free up space for lost and abandoned pets.
