CENTENNIAL, Colo. (KKTV) -- About 100 dogs have been rescued from high-kill shelters and are now looking for a new home.

Dozens of dogs landed near Denver Friday and will soon be looking for a new home.

The group 'Dog is My CoPilot' and the local rescue 'From Forgotten to Forever Rescue and Transport' partnered up to fly the dogs to the Centennial Airport south of Denver. They landed around 11 a.m. Friday.
