Yup, it's me again!
First I would like to start by saying WOW!! Because of all of the pilots and the collaborative efforts here.. we are down to the final groups of dogs!! Crazy when you see that we started with 72 dogs at the beginning of May!!!
Some of you are familiar with me already, but for those who are not, I am a volunteer with National German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue living in Massachusetts. Through the course of events, I have become a 'go to' person for transports of shelter dogs via PilotsNPaws. Not only with my rescue friends, but with some of the pilots that send other requests to me.
I guess it's because I have been somewhat successful in moving dogs where they need to be across the country. Thanks of course to you guys :)
National German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue and her sister rescues have requested that I assist in moving dogs out of Sioux Falls area. These dogs are a result of a puppy mill bust that occurred not long ago in that area.. there are 42 dogs going to all corners of the lower 48 AND Canada is taking 4 or so. Dogs were seized by the humane society and have been socialized and handled. Pilots have reported that all prior dogs have been sweet and lovable and a DREAM to transport (better than most humans they've flown)
TEXAS GSP RESCUE HAS ASKED FOR HELP WITH THESE 6
Proposed route (flexible of course)
13K~GPM (Eureka, KS~Grand Prairie, TX) <311NM>
GPM~SSF (Grand Prairie, TX~San Antonio, TX <218NM>**THESE DOGS NEED TO TRANSPORT THE WEEKEND OF THE 28TH (or the week prior) as the clock is going to be ticking on their health certificates which will have been issued in Sioux Falls, (FSD) the 20TH (see other post)
They are arriving in Eureka, KS on or about the 23rd or 24th from a VERY generous friend of mine that is ground transporting them from MN..
These dogs will be wearing harnesses so that they may be tethered in the back seats, they will be traveling with health certificates (per D.O.T. regulations)
food for contingency (on the off chance a leg is grounded if one pilot can't do the whole route) and perhaps a toy or two (we sent them to the triage center when the humane society seized them) Average weight would be 60# per dog.
Any thoughts or assistance would be greatly appreciated. Not going to be able to sleep if I don't try right?As I do not always receive notification of mail here, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org and refer to EUREKA, KS-TEXAS in the subject line (as you can imagine, my inbox is a nightmare!)
Thank you so much for your consideration and thank you for choosing rescue
