Fri 2/3 & Sat 2/4: Richmond, VA – Chelsea, AL: Blanche’s GOING HOME tport



Hi, all: Some of you may remember sweet Blanche the pittie mix who made her way to foster care in Richmond just two weeks ago. Blanche has had a really tough time settling into foster care here, in part because we think she REALLY misses her foster family and their pups (her bff’s) — she definitely thought that she was home after giving birth to her pups at their home AND going through heartworm treatment there. After chatting at length with Blanche’s original fosters, they have asked us to bring this girl back to Alabama so that she can join their family again!! That’s right — Blanche has found her happy ending!! ūüôā Sweet Blanche is going to be so excited to see them. It’ll be a very happy reunion this weekend if we can get her home! Heather & Chris are able to drive as far as Knoxville, TN to pick up Blanche and we need to fill just a few more legs to get her there — can you help us drive a leg to get Blanche HOME?

Note: Sweet Blanche has been in boarding for the last week as she was not meshing well with any of our fosters pups, so if at all possible we would love to get her back home to Heather & Chris this weekend (especially so that she doesn’t have to spend another week in boarding).
