Huge thanks go out to drivers Melissa Frye, Donna Moore, Coral Wages, Kathy Burnett, Angela Maddux, Kimberly Williams, Cheryl Nelson, Linda Shannon, Russ Raniszewski and Ruthanne Wilson who transported Stryker and Katie. Katie got off transport in Kingsland and Stryker continued on to Columbia SC to his foster home. As you can see from the picture, it was a pretty happy homecoming as Stryker is being fostered in a home where his brother lives.

Farrah had the wonderful opportunity of a straight thru ride to Jacksonville with Cynthia Strawn, where Angela met her coming in and transported her north. Thank you Cynthia!!!
Everyone is doing fine and we hope to have all in their new foster homes shortly. Thank you to all the drivers who put aside other activities to help Stryker, Katie and Farrah get safely to their destinations!!!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014 – “Blue” is an adorable 8 week old blue Malinois puppy who has just been brought into rescue and has an adoptive home waiting for him in NY. A mid-week transport was needed and once again, some wonderful volunteers stepped up to help little Blue get home!

Blue’s rescue team included Cee Kranz, Pat Kjoller, Tim Torson and new mom Ashley Keith. Thank you Cee for getting him vetted and ready for the trip and taking that first leg. Thank you Pat and Tim for taking those long legs of transport to move him closer to PA where Ashley picked him up.

Congratulations Blue on your new family, and Ashley – HAVE FUN!!! Wishing you loads of amazing adventures …

Friday, February 1, 2013 – Gena was discovered running in the streets south of Atlanta GA. She is a pretty young female but is unchipped and no one came forward to claim her. She was brought to our attention by a local volunteer and after her hold was up, she was evaluated and brought into rescue. A foster home in SC who had recently secured a wonderful forever placement for their foster was now open and willing to take her, so transport was arranged and Gena made the trip on Friday.

Heartfelt thanks to Dee Watts for bringing this girl to our attention and for being available to help with transport, to Coordinators Jennifer and Robert Black and Janet McSwain, to Barbara Mahoney who gave Gena a ride from Atlanta GA to Florence SC, to Robert Black and Steve Muxo for driving, and to Chrissy and Steve Muxo for fostering Gena. She is a beautiful girl and is settling in…. soon to be looking for her forever home.
