Mississippi Underdog Transport Team (MUTTS) is heading to Virginia with 50 dogs and cats in need of homes

More than 50 cats and dogs are set to leave Oxford Saturday on a trip to Vienna, Virginia in hopes of finding their forever homes.

Mississippi Underdog Transport Team, or MUTTS, gathered Saturday in the FNC Inc. parking lot where they set up several tents and accepted dogs and cats of all breeds and sizes for more than two hours before the animals were put into a transport van, which took off to Vienna at about 4:30 p.m.

It’s the newly formed group’s second transport.

The animals were headed to Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, which was found and run by veterinarian Dr. Amber Burton, who used to instruct spay and neuter surgeries on the Mississippi State University Veterinary Mobile Unit. After witnessing the growing number of unwanted puppies and kittens being euthanized in Mississippi shelters due to a lack of resources, she started WTAR three years ago and has helped re-home more than 2,000 animals.

“We are so thankful to be working with such an incredible group,” said Katie Muldoon, founder and co-president of MUTTS, which was formed in July.

The animals came from individuals in Oxford and Lafayette County as well from Panola County Humane Society, Marshall County Humane Society and other rescue groups.
