STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A rescued puppy from Starkville marked the milestone for a national animal protection group.
Apple, a 3-month-old Dachshund mix, arrived at the Oktibbeha County Humane Society with her friend, Curry, after both were found wandering the streets of Starkville.
In order to increase their chances of adoption, both were transported to New York City as part of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' national Animal Relocation Program.
Both departed from Starkville on Wednesday and arrived in Manhattan on Thursday, along with several more dogs, where they were greeted by a large crowd.
Apple was the 100,000th animal that has been transported by the national relocation program.
