Contact information (publicly viewable on forum): Jerry Dunham, jdunham@texas.net, 512-961-8398
Are you a 501c3: Yes
Additional Info/situation:

These two foxhound brothers have been sprung from the Smith County Animal Barn, and need to get to their foster home in Richardson sometime this coming week, the sooner the better. The foster home will be ready for them starting Monday. They are currently in a very temporary foster with the SPCA of East Texas, the group that pulled them from the animal barn for us. Foster dad doesn't mind driving some distance to an airport, so it's your choice.

Here are the boys:

Please contact me with any questions.

Thank you for all you do for the homeless animals!

I could do it some time this week, but my crate might not be big enough for both at the same time.

Hmmm.... Send me the dimensions of your crate and I'll ask the temp foster in Tyler whether she thinks they'd fit. She has the actual hounds, so she'd know best.

What's the best day for you?

Thanks for the offer!

New information. This really needs to happen on Tuesday, if at all possible. Our foster home took in a dog with a broken leg this weekend and will be at the vet with him a significant part of Monday. The temp foster in Tyler is telling us that they really need to get them out by Tuesday. All that makes Tuesday the target.

On top of that, we have a change in destination. We can still take them to Richardson, to our overcrowded foster home, but another hound person who isn't overcrowded has volunteered to take them, so it would be even better to take them directly there and avoid a second transport. This second foster home is in Paradise, TX. I've not looked yet to see where the closest airport is. It may be Decatur.

Let me know whether this is doable for you. Thanks!

Tuesday sounds good to me, I could even do it tomorrow after noon if needed. It's a pretty big crate so if they like each other they should be fine in it together. You can email me if easier acfox31@gmail.com

They will be fine in a crate together. I'll write in e-mail shortly.

This transport was completed by Alex on Tuesday, as planned, and the boys are safe with their new foster mom. I apologize for taking so long to wrap this up. I was unavailable for a couple of days.
