Dash Dashed to Wisconsin

Dash Dashed to Wisconsin

Dash had been languishing for months in Texas, where finding homes for hounds is very difficult. He had an offer from Elmbrook Humane Society (Milwaukee) to take him, and the rescue, San Antonio SPCA, has had excellent success with sending them Texas hounds, none taking more than 2 weeks to be adopted. Dash had a flight to Milwaukee with a Pilots N Paws pilot leaving early Saturday morning from Houston. Rescue just needed to get him moved from Georgetown to Houston in the two days following the flight request, Thursday or Friday, in order for him to catch a ride north.

Weekday transports are alway a bit more difficult to fill, and this one had an additional complication – Dash’s foster mom’s schedule. She lives outside of Georgetown, but works in downtown Austin, and her schedule isn’t very flexible. She could only drop him off at Georgetown on her way to work in the morning or after about 6pm.

That didn’t stop Tom, who chose the very early departure option to pick up Dash.  The two made it safely back to Houston, after having to migrate to a different airport on the Georgetown end due to low ceilings.

UPDATE – Sure enough, at the 2-week mark of arriving in Wisconsin, Dash was adopted!
