Tommy is a happy-spirited one-year-old Yellow Lab mix who never met a stranger he didn’t like. He was happy to go along with the animal control officer who brought him into the Coweta County Animal Control shelter in Georgia. Young Tommy would have no way of knowing that he was going to a place only to sit and wait, and then become part of what we know as “death row.” Luckily for Tommy, his life was spared.
Tommy is one of 20 dogs who took part in the incredible “Underdogs Railroad Shuffle Off to Buffalo” transport on December 8th and 9th. The dogs were pulled from a high-kill shelter in Georgia, where volunteers got them vetted and provided temporary boarding. RADAR paid for the dogs’ transport to Buffalo, New York, where LotsaDogs Rescue received them and took them on the last leg of their long journey to Whitby, Ontario.

UPDATE! All funds for Tommy have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Tommy has been adopted! And he has a day job… he’s being trained to sniff out contraband food and drugs at the Toronto International Airport!
