Saving Roscoe

It took a small battalion via land and air to move Roscoe to safety. The 4 year old American Staff had been orphaned when his (human) mother and her daughter were killed in an incident of domestic violence. CrisisDogNC was called on to re- home Roscoe. It was a matter of securing a foster home and then complicated logistics to bring Roscoe north from Lake Worth in south Florida to Jacksonville. Several pilots offered relays but none could coordinate with Roscoe’s urgent timeline. At the last minute, Sanford, NC- based pilot Tim Barnes stepped up to fly the entire trip to a CrisisDogsNC foster family in Raleigh, NC. PitStop Pit Bull Rescue Transport rallied drivers for the land voyage, placed Roscoe overnight in one of their foster homes, then drove him to JAX. On a cloudy Sunday in mid February, Pilot Tim settled Roscoe in the back seat of his Piper Arrow with his ¬†wife and headed to TTA in Sanford. There, Roscoes’s foster family met him. Next stop, either a “foster fail” or Roscoe goes on withUnderHound Rescue to a northern home. Thanks to all for an amazing rescue voyage.
