The Idaho Humane Society received 65 dogs and puppies from five different California animal shelters as part of a holiday airlift organized by Wings Of Rescue.

Wings Of Rescue is a non-profit based out of Woodland Hills, California that specializes with volunteer pilots to transport animals to rescue centers across North America.

Pilots are flying more than 1,000 dogs and cats in 20 planes to new homes across the country.

The program will be featured on an upcoming Fox Network’s “All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration,” which will air on Thanksgiving night. The two-hour special will be hosted by Kaley Cuoco and will include a shout-out of recognition to the Idaho Human Society along with 28 other shelters.

The small-breed dogs and puppies arriving on Nov. 20 will be offered for Black Friday, Nov. 27 when the Idaho Humane Society at 4775 Dorman St. will open two hours earlier than normal.

The shelter will offer discounts of 50 perfect between 8 a.m. and noon and then 25 percent off from noon to 6 p.m.

At the IHS PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center, 130 N. Milwaukee St., adoption fees will be 50 percent off between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and 25 percent off between 2-8 p.m.

The first 25 people who adopt animals at each location will receive a gift bag packed with items for their new family member.
