Saturday/Sunday, January 4-5, 2014 – Zucca is a dark petite female, weighing in at only 40-45 lbs. She was brought into rescue after her owner could no longer keep her. She was shy and timid, afraid of loud noises and quick movement when inside the house. Outside she is happy, more confident and noises don’t bother her. She is described as a very sweet, quiet girl.
A foster home has been located in Virginia so a plea is put out and offers begin to come in to get Zucca home. Her run filled quickly and on Saturday morning, January 4, her journey began.
Zucca was doing very well, enjoying her time with each driver, and the drive was pretty much uneventful until our drivers, Jed and Joyce Perry, who had taken one exceptionally long leg of 210 miles so that Zucca could get home this weekend, got stuck behind an accident on I-95 and delayed them – but we all kept in touch and were aware of what was happening. She finally made it to her overnight in Fayetteville and then continued north on Sunday.
A big wonderful THANK YOU to Bob and Eileen Burnell for pulling Zucca, short-term fostering her and getting her on the road Saturday morning, and to drivers Karen Alderson, Megan White , Vicky Sydorowicz, Joyce and Jed Perry, Janet McSwain, Laura Jane Davis, Ken Johnson, Edrie Greer, Donna Sees and George Van Tassel. You all did an extraordinary job and were the perfect team! Thank you so much LJ for holding Zucca overnight and the wonderful accommodations. And thank you to Laura and George Van Tassel for fostering Zucca!
We heard wonderful things about Zucca and she did very well on transport. We look forward to seeing her on the website, available for adoption, very soon. We wish her all the wonderful things in her new life and thank all the volunteers who made it possible. Her life could have taken a much different road had it not been for you…
Ken – we will miss you – stay safe and thank you!
