Two rescue groups need to swap dogs between Houston and San Antonio. There will be one going each way. We tried to plan it for this past weekend, but it didn't work out.
Piper was in the kill shelter in Angleton. No Texas hound rescue group had room. The SPCA of Western Quebec, in the Ottawa area, pulls a small number of Texas dogs of breeds they can easily place, usually Labs. They agreed to take Piper, since he was out of time. I raised donation money for his vetting, and the SPCAWQ took responsibility for transport to Canada.
Piper turned out to be heartworm positive, and they can't take him in Canada until he's treated and tests negative. That means finding him a foster home in Texas for a month to a month and a half for his treatment.
I suggested that we swap a coonhound in San Antonio that is HW free and ready to go, freeing up a space for Piper there. Farah was chosen, and now needs to get to Houston to travel with the Labs to Ottawa. Piper needs to get to San Antonio to begin his HW treatment.
Piper can travel to San Antonio anytime either on Saturday or on Sunday. Piper is in Spring, so CXO and DWH would work well for the eastern end. Farah is closest to 5C1 in Boerne, but we might want to shift to 8T8 depending upon time of day (if on Saturday). This transport could begin from either end.
Both hounds are very sweet. Piper can be a bit loud, but hopefully won't have much to say in the confines of an aircraft.
Thank you for everything you do for the homeless animals.
