Dog needs surgery on leg, ASAP. PLEASE LOOK AT PICTURES

Postby karonstewart on Thu Oct 17, 2013 7:59 pm

Number of animals being transported: one
Breeds, weight, age: American Eskimo Dog, 25 lbs, 1-1/2 yrs old
Health Condition: good
Heart worm Status: neg
Vaccinations: utd
Health Certificate: yes
Spay/Neutered: not yet
Special needs: Shelter will provide a crate!
Name of Sending Rescue/Parties Henderson Animal Shelter
Name of Receiving Rescue/Parties: Heidi Ortmeyer, Executive Director, Eskie Rescuers United
Contact information (publicly viewable on forum): Karon Stewart, ERU, 330-734-7704. kstewart1701@gmail.com
Are you a 501c3: yes
Additional Info/situation: This sweet dog was run over by his owner in July but wasn't taken to the vet until August (no nice comment here). A pin was put in his leg but never removed (again, no nice comment) thus the dog walks with his legs crossed. The owner surrendered him to the shelter but Eskie Rescuers will get him totally fixed up and neutered. Unfortunately, the leg may have to be removed but we want this done in Maryland...not Kentucky. Please help him get to Maryland fast!

Hopefully one pilot can fly to Parkersburg,WV and another can pick up and fly on to Maryland. I'm not a pilot but I calculate approx. 275-300 nm each. ??

Karon - Parkersburg is a bit of a stretch for me, but if someone could bring the dog to either Morgantown or Clarksburg, WV, I can bring it back to MD. Am available Sunday, Monday and Wednesday next week. Tomorrow might be possible as well if a tentative other transport doesn't happen.

I'll pick up the dog in Parkersburg if someone can get him there. It's 285 NM from Owensboro. Can do Sunday, Tuesday or Wednesday, weather permitting.

Thanks, Gary. I've been emailing some pilots that have flown for me before but most are tied up in one way or another. Still have a couple more to go.

Gary, I have emailed quite a few pilots and received response from about half. I think the inclement weather is delaying this flight...or at least I would hope that's the reason. The shelter knows we are trying to get him out so they won't euthanize him, but we may have to pay for boarding.

I am hoping SOMEONE will step up to fly to Cincinnati at least, then another from Cincin to WV. PLEASE!!

Karon - Weather here tomorrow not looking good. I'll be out of town for several days starting Thursday; next availability would probably be Thursday next week.

Thanks Gary. this has been a tough one to fill. Next Thursday will be a no-go as this dog has to get surgery soon. Thankfully, I have a tentative pilot in southern Ohio that has offered to fly to Maryland if I can get the dog on the west side of Cincinnati. I've been emailing pilots like crazy but no takers yet.

Be careful and have a nice trip. You're a doll for always stepping up for Eskie Rescuers!

Yeah!!! I have a pilot that will pick up Duke and get him to Cincin and a second that will fly him all the way to Maryland. I'm hoping they will pick up another eskie in Louisville as a tag-along adoptee!!

Will post this as DONE when flight is complete.
