WadeRoberts is based in the Houston region and might be available.
In your request, you don't specify a timeline... is there a deadline? Or do you have time for us pilots to figure out the various legs of this journey?

If that day and the route work, I'd be glad to take these guys back to Memphis with me. I'll be in a 182 so I imagine both crates would fit. Can you provide dimensions so everybody involved can be sure?

Are the wire crates collapsable (could they be reassembled inside the airplane and baggage compartment)? I also regularly fly patient flights, and I hesitate to yank out my rear seat.
Could the pick-up airport possibly be Hawthorne (45R) near Kountze/Lumberton TX (not that far from Vidor)? It's more on a direct route to connect with Chris in Monroe/Alexandria. I need to get the pooch he's delivering back to the Houston area as early as possible for an overnight foster pick up, and to prepare to fly it on 2/3 to West Texas.
FWIW: That leaves a lot of remaining distance and legs and the weather can be an issue this time of year on northward routes.
