Additional Info/situation: This mission will likely require 3-4 pilots.

Also, staring airport could be farther east: Morristown, TN, Kingsport, TN, etc. The best day for weather next weekend looks to be Sunday, Feb. 17.

Of course, it is still way early to tell about the weather right now (Sun, Feb. 10). If you can help, but can't carry 10 puppies, please let me know how many you can carry. We don't need to send them all on this trip. They will need to travel in crates.

Thanks, Chris! I'll check with some other pilots to see if they can fly on Monday. Did you mean BCB? Right now Monday, Feb. 18 weather looks like a nice day for this. If Monday there probably won't be 10 puppies. Maybe 5.

Yeah sorry, I meant BCB, Blacksburg. Or somewhere in northern tennesse or mid to souther Kentucky. I was looking at the cargo area the other day and it looks like I can get one medium to large crate in there. Don't know how these things are usually done so I'm kinda playing it by ear as far as how many and what size dogs I can fit.

Thanks, Chris. I just send a direct note out to some PNP pilots pointing them to this post. Regarding crates, this rescue can send some soft crates that will work well, so should be fine. They will work with you on that. Let's hope some more pilots can help with the rest of the route, so these puppies can get on their way to their rescue and homes.

Since I live in Schenectady, I should see what I can do for this transport. Of course, hard to resist puppies, and, I have Moday off from work.
An airport in the vicinity of Wilkes-Barre (KAVP or nearby) would be a good distance.

Jim B.,

I have an offer from a pilot who can cover FDK to Reading, PA. Could you pick up in Reading and take them on to Schenectady. Weather permitting, of course.

Lorene,

If there are any who can fly Sunday (weather permitting), I could do Knoxville to BCB Blacksburg and take all 10, have 2 large crates and 2 mediums, one small, if some of them can ride in same crate.

Thanks, Paul. This one MAY be filled for Monday with 4 pilots, and the weather still looks best for that day. One of the 4 pilots can fly on Sunday instead. For now looks good for Monday.
