Several dogs at the Collierville Animal Shelter are on their way to a brighter future.

The PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin' van stopped by CAS to pick up 19 dogs and take them to a new shelter in Michigan.

According to a news release from CAS, the Rescue Waggin' van transports dogs from overpopulated shelters to places where it is more likely that they'll be adopted.

All 19 dogs were checked for illnesses before they boarded the van to ride to their new home.

According to CAS, the Rescue Waggin' program has saved the lives of more than 80,000 dogs and puppies since 2004.
