LOS ANGELES (AP) — Norman was hog-tied and dumped in a San Bernardino school field.

The pit bull mix faced euthanasia at the city's overcrowded shelter.

Fortunately for him, the Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team sprang into action.

On Thursday, volunteers for the Los Angeles-based group will take Norman and nearly 200 other dogs and cats to Oregon and Washington. The animals will go to guaranteed homes or no-kill shelters.

Norman is headed for the Willamette Humane Society in Salem, Ore.

Riverside city and county officials say about 150 of the animals are from their shelters.

A mother, six puppies and thee pregnant dogs are being flown from the Chino Airport to Oregon. Two large transport vans will head for the Pacific Northwest with the rest of the animals.
