Broken Window to Survive

Dave Whitney provided some much needed transportation to a mama dog and her 7 puppies. The story begins with good samaratins in Elk City…

Saving the unlucky dogs is a family affair.

“I received the call on this girl today…She has been seen at a store in Elk City… Skinny and with some skin issues…They called the pound, and when they got there, she ran they followed her… she went to a house near by and she went through a broken window..Neighbors came out… they told her story…In December, she was adopted from a pound in Clinton (HELL HOLE) she gave birth in January… a week ago, her owners went to jail… her and the babies were locked up inside… To feed them, she broke through the window… every day, she has been seen bringing food back through the window… she was caring for her babies… Now, she is in jail…. another hell hole, high kill pound and tonight, they are suppose to go get her babies…PLEASE… she needs help…. I have no way to do anything, other than get her and help transport…Anyone???”

Melissa Haner (Altus, OK) got the ball rolling and contacted Dave to request help transporting her (Buffy) and her puppies. They arranged all of the details and Terry Lynn, also from OK was able to spring Buffy from the pound (high kill). The puppies were gathered from an abandoned house, where they were born and driven to the airport the morning of the flight. Black Canyon Animal Sanctuary, in Crawford, CO, offered to keep them, get them healthy and adopt them out to good homes eventually. Tami volunteered to meet Dave at the airport to get the pups to Black Canyon.

With high winds predicted, the flight was iffy, but Dave got a very early start and everything went without a hitch. The forecast winds didn’t show up until later (after he was on the ground safe), and this baffled all the controllers he talked to during the flight (good karma?).

    When these are posted, everyone needs to make sure they add what state they are in. How can any of us help if we only know the city where the problem is? And many, many states have cities and towns with the same name.

    A huge thank you to Dave and Pilots N Paws for getting Buffy and her pups to Colorado. Two puppies have already been adopted and Buffy has a potential new home too!
