He's super friendly and has literally made the trek around the world from Afghanistan to Alabama where he's been patiently awaiting for me to adopt him. I will check back and update on a daily basis. Thank you so much!

Hi all,

I would be happy to help make this transport happen. I'm based out of KMBO in Madison, MS (Jackson, MS metro) and could make the initial leg of the transport or continue west to Lousianna/east Texas. This trip will obviously take several legs and likely some overnight fosters along the way to complete. Please feel free to fit me in as needed to make it work. Might be easiest to use me on the first leg, say Anniston, AL back to Madison, MS. I'm available this Sunday afternoon (May 18th) and could be in Anniston by about 3:30 pm and back in Madison about 6:00 pm. Also, I'm making an Angel Flight transport to Huntsville, AL next Wednesday afternoon (May 21st) and could return via Anniston picking up Basco late in the day and returning to Madison. Would likely require a foster in Jackson. Just throwing out options. I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Jeff Wall
