About 40 canine refugees are looking for homes after being flown to north Florida from other states.
They were part of a massive volunteer operation by a group called Pilots N Paws.
About 80 pilots shipped more than 300 dogs out of an airport near Charlotte, N.C. on Saturday to no-kill shelters in seven states.
The organization says North Carolina has one of the highest pet euthanasia rates in the country.
The Florida Times-Union reports that the dogs that landed in Jacksonville would eventually end up on a 27-acre dog rescue ranch outside West Palm Beach.
They joined about 200 dogs already living at Big Dog Rescue Ranch.
