I hope you received the email that I sent at around 3:45 pm. I also left you a voice message shortly after seeing your last post. Mark is taking different dogs than above as we need to get these dogs moved out prior to his departure. With the euth order for 20 dogs and pups, I am pleased to say that with the tremendous help of great pilots and rules at all kill shelters that allow for folks to pay for boarding, we have been able to save them all. We have secured a pilot that is picking up these dogs from Campbellsville and bringing them to your airport by 9:45 am ET. We have also secured a pilot for the last leg to meet you at your destination in Jainsville, WI. Lastly, we have secured fosters in Jainsville in case of inclement weather. I was happily amazed that we were able to secure a pilot willing to be in the air at 6:30 am on Saturday to pick up our dogs in Campbellsville, bring them back to your homebase, as well as secure the connecting legs and backup WI foster plan. I was getting nervous after spending so many hours to secure these plans that we were not going to be able to do this. As Chris mentions in her post earlier and mentioned in my email, a number of other rescue alliances use this field. The other post is unrelated. I was also lucky that the first pilot could take these dogs as they are the maximum for the Campbellsville pilot's plane configuration. After several failed attempts due to weather and mechanical failures, I can't wait to see these dogs at their new rescue.
On a side note, there is a reporter that is interested in doing a story about this large airlift. Would you be interested in speaking with him? Thank you again!!
