Christmas Kisses Tport 12/17 & 12/18 Chattanooga, TN – Derby, CT & Richmond, VA


***Several legs still needed to fill & we’re begging for help***

Note: Don’t hesitate to drive because you’re concerned about bad weather. If the weather is bad or the conditions are unsafe, we do not want our transport drivers or our pups on the road. Please don’t let that be the reason you hesitate to volunteer. If the conditions are bad – the transport cancels. But if the conditions are good and we have no drivers lined up – the transport still cancels and Noel & Gwenie are stuck in boarding for two weeks until we can try again. :/

Gwenie’s transport from last weekend was canceled, so we’re trying again. As you know, Gwenie is a sweet pointer mix girl who was rescued from a VERY high-kill shelter in GA. She has been quarantined prior to transport. Noel is a sweet addition this week, she is a tiny little Pekingese who lost her home due to divorce and foreclosure. Rescue has been found for her with the Potomac Valley Pekingese Club in Richmond, she is traveling to her foster home, too! Noel has also been quarantined prior to transport.

Can you help us get these sweeties there in time for Christmas?

If you can drive, please contact: and include the following:
