Puppies rescued from Alabama floods available in Largo
Puppies rescued from an animal shelter in Alabama last month will be available for adoption this afternoon in Largo, according to SPCA Tampa Bay. About 50 puppies were taken from a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals facility in Dothan, Ala., due to the rising flood waters there, spokeswoman Talonda Yates said. The facility in Dothan sustained water damage as a result of the flood. Anyone interested in adopting any of the puppies needs $90 and a valid driver's license, Yates said. In addition, the SPCA will do a background check on anyone adopting. The dogs will be available, beginning at 1 p.m., at the SPCA facility, 9099 130th Ave. N., Largo.The puppies are about 8 weeks old. One mother had her litter during the trip from Alabama, Yates said.
