Shelter Dog to Columbia, SC - from Tupelo/Memphis - AMW

Postby crystalrun on Thu Nov 05, 2009 7:00 pm

I am a producer for the TV show America's Most Wanted. We recently shot a story in New Albany, MS and the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society provided us with 16 dogs to play the role of animals that were recused from a puppy mill in horrendous conditions. (In addition the people were selling children stolen from Guatamala (one died) and are now fugutives.) So I have made it a mission to find these shelter dogs homes. I have managed to find homes for all of them. 1 of the dogs - Benjamin is going to his new home in Columbia, SC so I need to figure out how to get him there.

Benjamin - 14 lb neutered male Shih Tzu - 6 year old

Please let me know if you can help get get her there. I have been over whelmed at the outpouring of support and generosity for helping these special animals. Thank you. Cindy Miller 301-661-2249 crystalrun@earthlink.net

I could fly the dog from Anderson, SC to Newberry, SC (which is only 40 minutes outside of Columbia). However it would
be in a 2 seater helicopter so I would need to make sure he could fit in a fairly small crate like a Veri-kennel 100 (which is about 21x15x15 I think). If the weather is bad, I could drive him but will take longer.

Thanks Jeff,

Right now I have the little guy as part of a van transport starting on Thursday. But he'll have to travel from Tupelo to Nashville, (5 hrs), overnight there then go to Rhode Island and then finally get to Washington DC/Baltimore area on Saturday night around 5:30 pm. Then I was planning to meet the new owners half way to South Carolina with him on Sunday. So that is a lot of traveling for the little guy. I would love to be able to get him to Columbia, SC area directly from Tupelo. Is that something you can help with?

Yeah, I could do it. The problem right now is the weather. It's pretty stinky for the next couple of days across the route from Tupelo to Columbia. I am off for the next 2 days, work Friday and off on Saturday. Thursday looks possible. If the weather is too bad in S.C., I could easily come get him in Tupelo and zip him up to Nashville for you.

Can you get him about halfway on Sunday? (I could to Thursday but the weather does not appear it will corporate.) I could take him from Hunstville or Chattanooga to Greenville or Columbia.

Thanks John,

But it looks like Jerry is going to be able to get Benjamin all the way to Columbia. Thank you so much for the offer. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.
