Have you tried contacting the SPCA or the American version by e-mail? When I was searching for a dog some years back, they gave me a list of different active shelter (some private), that I was able to check out on-line. We found our girl pointer in another city approx. 2 hours away. My wife and I drove there to meet the dog and we made arrangements to adopt her and pick her up the follow month. She was nursing puppies at the time. This was all done within the country but the larger animal rescue centres were very willing to provide information and direction.
