If this hug from the adopters doesn't explain why we do this, I don't know what else could. Many thanks to pilots Ed, Kevin, Denise and Dave for getting this girl to a real home; to Sandi and Theresa for ground support; to backup pilots Sam and David, and especially to Anthea for loving Gleda even before she arrived.
More photos to come.
Gleda is a 45-pound 9-month-old female Icelandic Sheepdog currently fostered in Santa Ana CA, with an approved adopter waiting in Okmulgee OK.
Depending on the destination airport preferred by a pilot, the trip is 1011 – 1080 nm, and will probably require 3 legs. Routing from Santa Ana is flexible, either northerly through Albq and Dallas or southerly through Tucson/Phx and El Paso. Ground support and fosters available along either route, including volunteers to deliver her to the originating airport and pick her up at the destination. Destination volunteer can travel up to 100 miles for the pick up.
Many thanks for considering our request! Please email me directly if you might be able to help, and I’ll contact pilots off-list too.
