NO WAY NO HOW

Back on January 16th, a life or death transport took place. Lori-Lynn Clayton had to find a pilot for an emergency flight to get a sick Springer to Denton, TX from San Angleo. She had pulled a very very sick beautiful Springer Spaniel from the local shelter that literally was on deaths bed from starvation and was thrilled to be able to get the English Springer Rescue America in Dallas, TX on board to help save this sweet boys life.
She immediately took him to the only vet open on Saturday (actually stayed late waiting for her) only to be told there was nothing he could really do as the dog was too far gone. So she picked the pup up and took him to 24 hour ER vet hospital, and they started treating him with IVs and doing blood work over the weekend.
They then needed to take him to a regular vet clinic where they did more test for another week, but even they were giving up on sweet Clayton (aww the rescue named him after Lori-Lynn). The Vet’s pretty much told her she could take him home to die. NO WAY NO HOW, so she was in panic mode that evening to find a pilot willing to come on at no notice to help save this special Springer named Clayton and take him to the Springer rescue where they had a doctor willing and waiting at the Center for Vet Specialty Care Hospital in Carrollton, TX.
Well, a young pilot named Tyler Chapman (his first flight for PnP) called Lori-Lynn right away and gave her the great news she was praying for. He said he would be honored to come get this dog. He flew into to San Angelo early the next morning from Denton to take sweet Clayton back with him to the Springer Rescue and on to the emergency care.
If it weren’t for the quick caring response from PnP Tyler Chapman this pup would not have made it. Clayton is finally on his way to recovery and hopefully go to an outpatient foster home soon. There is not way to give enough thanks to rescues like English Springer Rescue America for not giving up on this special dog and for all the team of people such as PnP program to make things happen for the good!
