Tampa FL to Boston MA

Postby Betty DeAcetis on Tue May 26, 2009 11:24 pm

We have an 8 lb yorkie male that is an operated Liver Shunt pup that is being fostered in Tampa and will be adopted in Boston that is ready to be transported to his new adoptive home. He is a very gentle little guy that is going to a family that one member is receiving chemo and he will be good therapy for her as she battles cancer. We have folks in FL who can transport him to Tampa or even another airport and I would pick him up in Boston or even Manchester NH. His family is anxious to get him so I am hoping someone can help us make their dream come true....thanking you in advance. I can be contacted at 781-334-4356 or cell 339-226-1066. Open for any suggestions...

I can take him from NJ/Eastern NY/Eastern PA to the Boston area on a weekend in VFR conditions. How close to Boston do you want him?

Betty, I know you are new to the forum and this is your first request so thought I would jump in an explain that VFR means Visual Flight Rules. Those are the rules Alex flies by which equates for those of us non-pilots to only flying on calm, clear days. It may look clear to you but there are other factors involved aloft that the pilots research. Other pilots may fly IFR which means Instrument Flight Rules and they will fly on days that are less then optimal. Each pilot makes their own determination on weather conditions and their comfort zone for flying that day. My explanation is very simplified but I am sure you will understand the basic idea.

Thank you Alex for offering to help the pup and the person in need!!

Hi Betty,

I can fly the Florida leg of this transport on any day that the weather will allow. I will go as far as the Florida/Georgia border from Tallahassee to Jacksonville.

Re: Tampa FL to Boston MA Request canceled

Postby Betty DeAcetis on Fri May 29, 2009 2:37 pm

Please cancel this request as we have a member who has agreed to fly with this pup next week. While this was my first request, I would like to thank everyone who called and answered the request.....just a great group of people and so willing to help with their services. I think my first transport should be a shorter trip as well as I need to educate myself on how everything works.....thanks again for all your support.

I would also like to thank you all for your efforts on behalf of Betty and little Kirby. I am relieved to see that he has a way to his new home as they are anxious to get him home. I would also like to invite any of you that like to fly in for weekend events and since you are dog lovers Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue is having their 10th Anniversary Yorkie Ball in Nashville October 1-4 please visit our web site for more information if you want to come we would love to meet some you. Our hotel is five miles from the airport and has a free shuttle to and from the hotel.
Thanks again for all you are doing to help those of us who are working so hard in rescue.
