Additional info/situation: Ellie was adopted to a retired couple in NJ. They decided to sell their house and moved to Canton GA about a year ago. The wife was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and the husband died unexpectedly on February. The daughter and her husband in that area dumped the dog at the shelter later in Canton. The shelter contacted Mid-ABHR after scanning the dog for a microchip. We had the dog pulled by the local basset rescue, who brought Ellie to her vet, who generously offered to board Ellie until this Friday. We need to get Ellie back up to NJ. We are flexible where we can meet a pilot, either in De, NJ, eastern PA.
