Facebook is abuzz because a Puyallup dog rescue group headed home from Los Angeles with a bus load of 70 dogs is stranded on Interstate 5 at Grants Pass in Oregon.

Sunny Sky’s Animal Rescue  says they are in desperate need of money for repairs. They do have enough food and water for the dogs.

At one point, animal control threatened to take the dogs but the situation was resolved.

You can get updates and make a donation via the group’s Facebook page.

According to their website, Sunny Sky's started in 2010 with a single rescue dog named "Sunny Sky," who was discovered by Dr. Illina Berton on a euthanasia list at a shelter in L.A. Dr. Berton also owns East Main Animal Hospital.

She fell in love with the chihuahua and decided to dediate her time to rescuing as many dogs as she could.

Since their first trip to Los Angeles in February of 2011, The Rescue Bus has rescued more than 200 animals from high kill LA shelters.

UPDATE 9/20 10 a.m.: According to the Sunny Sky Facebook page, the animals were temporarily housed at a large ranch and each dog was walked and cared for, even into the late night. Another rescue transport service came out and was able to take all the animals and one person (Dr. Berton) back to Puyallup.
