DONE! Mom and 5 pups need ride Wilm, NC to Philly

Postby IDOGRRR on Fri Feb 27, 2009 12:27 am

*UPDATE*Thank you all for your generosity. The foster mom in NC has decided , quite adamantly, that she will transport the dogs herself. This was our first time using Pilots N Paws. We are amazed and touched by everyone's generosity . The pilots involved here are truly selfless and caring people. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!

We have a foster dog that we recently pulled from a high kill shelter. She is with her foster mom in Wilmington, NC. She is HW positive so we couldn't spay her until her HW treatment was done. The vet did 2 separate exams (by palpating her) and said he didn't think she was pregnant. Our foster mom woke to a little bit of noise last night and a puppy on the floor. The dog had 5 puppies. The foster mom is not equipped to care for or house these puppies. We are a national volunteer/foster based rescue and have no other fosters in the area able to deal with this situation. We are desperate to get them moved to the NE, the Philadelphia area to be exact. Please let us know ASAP if anyone can help . [map:28401-19019]

How quickly do you need to have them moved?

My availability is not good for the next couple of weeks, but I can try to enlist some other sympathetic pilots I know.

You might also want to search for pilots based in either the Wilmington or Philadelphia areas (or someplace in between) and contact them directly. There are directions on how to search for pilots in a particular area elsewhere on the PNP site.

We are hoping to move them in approx 2 weeks. The mother is approx 50lbs. We could also get them to Raleigh or maybe Charlotte if that would help.

I should have said that we need to move them within the next 2 weeks.

What is the total weight of bitch and pups? Will the pups fit in a small crate? How old are the pups now? Will they be able to tolerate four hours or so isolated from mom? If not, then the whole family will need to go in one crate. That might be a problem for some planes. I'm scheduled for a trip from Lumberton, NC to Chesapeake, VA on 3/7. Several pilots are moving a dog from FL to MD. Right now we have some pilots on standby and we might be able to fit this in if everbody can figure a way to carry the whole family.

Weather permitting, I could take them Saturday or Sunday.

Herb,

If you want to cover this one, I'll concentrate on the other transport.

Thanks,

Marty
