Done! Fort Walton Beach, FL to Miami, FL

Postby WirehairRescue on Tue Jan 13, 2009 4:39 am

Hi,

I have a senior German Wirehaired Pointer about 50 lbs that was dumped to be PTS by the owner. Due to her age, we believe transporting her via ground would be too stressful. If anyone can help, even if to Frederick, MD, she can be overnited for a couple days in MD and continue on to new england. Boston, Manchester or even Springfield would work great. Any help is truly appreciated!!!!!!

UPDATED*** A closer foster home near Miami, FL has come forward, so that seems to be a shorter flight ...
thanks again!!

I could help with some of the middle part of the trip say Charlotte NC to Frederick Md, or Atlanta to Charlotte

If you can put it together I can help

I'm based at FDK, but Boston and Manchester would be a long haul unless I can recruit a friend with a faster airplane. I recently made a run to Hartford and it was five hours flight time round trip, close to six and a half hours elapsed time. MHT would add another hour and a half -- possible if the dog can stay overnight and we can start in the morning, but a long day.

I don't know whether I'll be able to fly this weekend, but I'll keep watching this post. Thanks,

If you can get the dog to Perry Foley airport (40J - southeast of Tallahassee) tomorrow I can transport him to Miami. I fly out of the Florida Keys and will be in Tampa about 10am. I will be departing Tampa around 11:30am and could be at Perry Foley by 12:30pm. Let me know if this works for you. If so, I will need contact info for pick up and delivery as well as the desired airport for drop off.

P.S. I can do Quincy, FL airport as a back up. It is northwest of Tallahassee.

Welcome,

Ok, what u need to do is go to the pilots map on the pilot n paws home page @ the bottom expand the map so u can see the area better. Email as many pilots as u can starting in the area of the departure going all the way along the route to your destination. The more pilot’s u email the higher your chances of a successful rescue.

To give u an idea the average leg is usually 200-300 miles, which comes to about 2 hours.
So your flight will likely need multiple legs.

I fly out of the northern NJ area so if u can get the dogs into this area I might be able to help out with a leg.

If u ever need help please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime @ JTS42481@AOL.COM

I am setting up another transport that will be picked up in Perry-Foley airport this coming week. We just need to get a connecting pilot to bring him to me. Can you get this pup to Perry and if so how much advance time would you need in order to get him there?
