I'm not sure whether this is the proper way to post this on the Ride Board. This is two separate situations, but the destination is the same and the timing is essentially the same. They could travel on separate transports, or together, but the two shelters are close enough together that a combined transport makes a lot of sense.
Both shelters are open 10 - 6 Thursday and Friday, and open again on Saturday at 10. We can arrange ground transport to get from each shelter to the nearest airport, but have to take into account when the shelters are open so that the dogs can be pulled.
Destination would be 5C1 in Boerne. While we can probably get someone to 5C1 for pickup during the day, an evening arrival would mean more people are available to meet the flight. This includes Saturday, since most of our volunteers will be at a major adoption event at PetSmart in San Antonio that day. I don't want to ask a pilot to land at 8T8 just because it's close to the adoption event.
This can be split into two legs, if that works best for you. GOP might work as a handoff point. Please reply here on the Ride Board if you'd prefer to use the two-legged plan.
Thank you for helping the homeless animals.
