These young dogs were rescued from Natchez, Mississippi, after historic floods sent residents fleeing to dry ground.

With their lives in upheaval, many owners gave up their pets for adoption. The HSUS carefully transported these puppies north to Maryland to find them good homes.

See a video of their arrival in Maryland.
