Yreka's Rescue Ranch bursting with baby dogs

When you name yourself "Rescue Ranch," people have some expectations of you. The big one is that they expect the ranch, in Yreka, to rescue dogs and keep them from ending up in a shelter that will destroy homeless dogs.

That's an especially tall order at the moment, since Rescue Ranch has roughly 70 puppies on its hands, and not nearly that many foster families to help raise and socialize them. So ranch managers have declared February "Puppy Love Month." Laura Finley manages the sanctuary side of the Rescue Ranch operation. She visits to talk about the plethora of puppies, and how the ranch handles the influx.
