Happy ‘Houla Run: Fri/Sat/Sun 1/20-1/22: West Monroe, LA – Richmond, VA & Philadelphia, PA

by

We have some of the cutest puppies in the South hitting the road to rescue this weekend! The Z puppies ended up in a high-kill shelter in rural Lousiana just before Christmas. Thanks to our awesome friends at PAWS NELA, we were able to get these sweet little bits into short-term foster homes until they were old enough to have a few rounds of vaccines under their belts. Now it’s time for them to hit the road to find their forever families! Sweet Blanche got left behind on our transport from last weekend, so she is extra excited to make her way to rescue this weekend. She is a sweet, loving girl who is bound to smother you with pittie kisses. Skeeter and Phil are two lucky boys who made it out of a high-kill shelter in rural Georgia. Thanks to their foster momma, they are healthy, happy boys who are ready to make their way to rescue (Fuzzy Face Rescue) to find their forever homes, too! Because of the number of dogs on this run — we have arranged for two drivers per leg for almost every leg! Please do not let the number of dogs on the run keep you from driving!

CROSSPOSTING IS GREATLY APPRECIATED & GAS MONEY IS AVAILABLE!!

THE FINE PRINT: I am a volunteer transport coordinator who has a network of volunteer drivers and we assist rescues in their efforts to save death row dogs and place them in approved adoptive homes or with approved rescues. All rescues must have proper permits to import dogs and all dogs must have health certificates to cross state lines. Please remember that I am dependent on what the senders tell me about our passengers’ temperaments. The very nature of rescue transport creates some risk for those who participate in it; even a good-natured dog may find it stressful to be passed from stranger to stranger and cooped up with unfamiliar dogs and may act in uncharacteristic ways. Neither I nor anyone associated with this transport can accept liability for any accidents or incidents that may occur during the transport. Thank you for understanding and volunteering.
