Contact information (publicly viewable on forum): see above
Are you a 501c3: yes
Additional Info/situation: The shelter will send an ACO out to FGR to meet the pilot during shelter hours. They do NOT work on Sunday and I am not sure about Saturday. If a pilot can pick Casper up and foster him overnight and meet the next leg from 20n...that would be great or just bring him on up to NH or VT. Whatever works. We have a 5 star foster bed waiting for him.

Hi
I've signed on as a back up for Saturday (cannot do Sunday or Friday) for the other flight and would be glad to take this scared little guy too. I can fly to 20N and be there by 1:30 and then go to LEB. Not VT because I am based in E'rn MA. I know there's a Friday person who's available, so let me know if Friday is not a go and I can help out Saturday.

I will be flying from NYC to Saratoga, NY on Saturday and could fly them up with me. Could you drive over to Saratoga to pick up the pup?

I just called the Hempstead Animal Shelter and understand they are open Saturday, but Shari is not there until tomorrow to discuss possible logistics. I also don't know the info about the other dog going to 20N or the receiver info.

I also tried to call Terri to discuss, but got vmail which could not accept messages. Please call me to discuss if you think this can work for you.
Thanks,

Terri,

This is the Jim who just spoke to you on the phone.

I can be the backup's backup for a complete FRG-20N-BTV flight on Saturday. The turbulence Saturday *should* be less than today or tomorrow.

I am the pilot who offered to do the 20N-LEB or BTV trip Friday afternoon. But I never really got a response, other than Friday wasn't great for the person receiving the dog.

I assume this post meant to say FRG on Long Island, as there is no such airport as FGR.

Regardless, I remain available for Friday afternoon if needed. I couldn't go as far as Republic, but if someone could get this guy to 20N Friday afternoon, I could take him the rest of the way with the other dog. As usual, this would be weather-permitting, but right now it looks like it would work, once the front passes tomorrow morning.

Dear Pilots, (BrianR, Mooseman, DougWeir, JimC, lumatech, Iceman1007

Ok, I just got a call from Shari the Rescue coordinator for Hempstead Animal Shelter who confirmed that YES they can drive little Casper to the FRG on Saturday.

Lumatech has confirmed that his plane most likely will not be ready so he is out but willing to do something next weekend.

BrianR, my apologies for being unclear about Friday. We just have no volunteers off from work to meet you at the LEB airport on Friday.

BrianR, Margery, JimC, it's a go for everyone on Saturday. I am not sure who would like to fly but we are eternally grateful to whomever takes the flight.

A volunteer will meet a pilot at FRG with Casper the puppy. Shari will provide cell and driver info of the volunteer of ACO bringing him to the shelter. Next stop 20N. Mary the woman Boarding Teddy will meet the pilot at 20N. She has no computer. We will have to contact Mary via cell phone.

I will be meeting the pilot on this end either at LEB or BTV. If we are in BTV, the foster Mom's will most likely be there to pick up their charges. They can drive to LEB if they like and if not, I will drive up Sunday to deliver Teddy and Casper to their foster Moms.

Thanks so much,
Terri Gerard, President

It seems that of the 3 of us, I'm the only one who was originally going as far as FRG.

Brian, Margery - Would either of you like to do the whole flight? I'm happy to yield to those who spoke up first.

Unfortunately, my only available day this week was Friday; it appears that won't work with the receiving party, so I guess I am out.

Hi,
I can't do the whole flight. It's just too long in my little Cherokee since I can't leave BED until noon-ish. But --
Doug, you also volunteered for the yorkie flight right? What if I pick up the yorkie at KASH, fly to 5B2 (Saratoga), give you the yorkie and I take the poodle and go back to LEB?

Would that work?

oops. I lost track of pilots. Is Doug still in on this?

Anyone feel free to e-mail me directly, winnlil@rcn.com since this is getting a little confusing for me.

Thanks,
