I can provide transport from Lancaster, SC (SE of CLT) to the Lexington, KY area Saturday or Sunday morning or can fly the pups to Asheville or somewhere around there Friday evening if this helps. The aircraft is a Piper Warrior, so I am not sure about space and the size of the dogs. 1 could go in a crate in the baggage compartment and 1 or possible 2 in crates on the back seats. It they are good in cars potentially one could fly on the back seat uncrated, but tethered. If John can do the second leg to Muncie, this might work.
"If someone from Charlotte could drive Northwest a couple of hours and meet us, say around Asheville, NC. that would shave 4 hours off the time we would be back in Lexington and would allow the flying leg to Muncie to be completed before dark. I don't know if that's an issue in this case but in some it is. If we need to come all the way to Charlotte and then back and night flying is an issue, we can board the pups at our house overnight and meet the plane on Saturday morning."
"We just did this exact run on Friday. We met Tim Morland with 2 Labs (Happy & Luke). We are happy to do it again. It would be great to try to coordinate with another rescue request coming out of that part of the country depending on the size of the dogs we could probably take at least 1 more."
