Susan Scoops Up 22
Alabama transport coodinator Rebecca Harshman had 22 dogs in Alabama all set to go for the Dog is My Copilot flyway. As Jeff Bennett was doing his planning, he mentioned some dogs in Alabama that could be driven to north Florida and picked up from there.
Susan Delgado came up with another plan. She offered to miss the excitement and ground event in Charlotte and fly to Greenville, AL, pick up her load, and take them to Lakeland, FL. The pickup location saved the Alabama rescue from having to get the dogs to Charlotte so that they could be flown to Florida. It worked out really well and saved a bunch of dogs.
The original plan was for 14 dogs. Well, she took the “Jeff approach” and squeezed in 22 to save as many as possible even if was a little cramped for 2.5 hours of flight time.
The one missing an eye has a story, but with all the bustle some of the details were missed. Memory says it was found on the side of the road with the eye hanging out but still trying to survive. A life saved even though the eye socket is now closed.
The two brown/white pups gave Susan tons of kisses. They had mange but were responding to the meds. Some moms of the pups couldn’t come but will join them next week.
None of this would be possible without our terrific sponsors – Petmate and Subaru.
