So many puppies! Around 160 dogs and cats were just unloaded from a plane here in Holland, coming from overcrowded shelters in Louisiana. They’re headed to multiple different shelters around West Michigan to go up for adoption! @wzzm13 pic.twitter.com/DfcdmfdhfB— Nate Belt (@NateBeltWZZM) June 23, 2021
