They were able to fill all the remaining legs!
I'm not sure if anyone here would be interested in helping transport a momma dog and her two puppies from a shelter in IL to a rescue in Michigan. There are two more legs needed- on from Joliet IL to Portage IN and from South Bend IN to Fremont IN. These dogs must be moved out of the shelter on Saturday or else they will be put to sleep. Here is the original email that was sent to me.
Thanks to anyone who can help. If you have questions feel free to email the coordinator or message me. I have volunteered for a number of transports in my area and they are generally pretty neat- get to meet some nice dogs and great people. The legs take about 1 hr to an hour and a half. Thanks in advance!
JUST *TWO* LEGS NEEDED, AND TRANSPORT FOR BABE & HER 2 PUPS WILL BE FILLED! HUGE thanks to all for your driving & for crossposting help so far... TRANSPORT MUST FILL BY 7P TONIGHT- SO I HAVE TIME TO GET A RUN SHEET OUT FOR TOMORROW'S TRANSPORT! Please see below for what's still needed - and help out/crosspost if you can!
Babe, a sweet, sad Boxer/ShepX (?) and her 2 little ones were to be put to sleep yesterday (Thursday) at 5 p.m. - Last Day Dog Rescue/MI just heard about this little family & stepped up for them at the last minute! HOWEVER, due to overcrowding, the dogs MUST MOVE this Saturday 9/4! They have a ride from the shelter to Joliet, IL - please help Babe and her pups get the rest of the way to rescue in MI! The route/legs are outlined below, legs are flexible so let me know what you drive; permission is granted to crosspost; and this transport will be fully monitored. Please let me know if you can help out - thank you!
