VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTVR) -- A group of dogs are safe in the Commonwealth Monday after an animal rescue group drove to North Carolina to save them from a kill shelter.

However, the trip was almost canceled after car problems threatened to derail the journey.

The donation brought the group's organizer to tears.

All six of the animals have been adopted by families.
