Two coonhounds are both out of time at separate small-town shelters in north Texas (Paris and Mt Pleasant). Country Hearts Hound Rescue in Houston can take them. We can get the Paris puppy to the Mt Pleasant airport (OSA), so they can be picked up together. Wednesday would be best, but we'll work with whatever you can offer. If other than Wednesday, arrival will have to be late in the day, since the woman from Country Hearts works at a vet clinic and won't be home until 18:30 or so.
Unfortunately, the weather looks unfriendly except for late Thursday. That may be our only chance before the weekend.
We are working on ground transport, too, but so far the earliest I can find seems to be Sunday, and I'm not sure they'll have room for both dogs. The puppy is probably safe until then, but I doubt the adult Bluetick is. Please let me know if you have suggestions.
Thank you for helping the homeless animals.
