So sad

:(:(I already heard back from Kim Goforth (GRRA) and Lexie (AGA) and they cannot take them, so holding out hope that the other Golden Rescue MIGHT.:(:(

Kim (GRRA) told me to email Angels Among Us in Georgia for them, so I did.
Big Prayers needed for these two!!

Help with transportation?

I am endeavoring to rescue Shania and Bentley, but am in Nebraska. Can anyone help with some sort of assembly line transport? This is the first time I've attempted a rescue. Thank you :) Kathy

We have arranged transport for several dogs. You might start a new thread and title it "Transport help needed" and reference this thread for info about the dogs.

I use dial-up at home and checking mapquest is hopeless!

I live near Greenville, sc and will help out if the transport comes anywhere near me.
Are you trying to get them for yourself or for a rescue? Some shelters won't adopt to an individual that is out of state.
Have you checked with the shelter and will they adopt out of state? If not, we will have to arrange a covert pick-up and transport, but it can be done.

I'm pretty much under the weather today, but am planning on going to work later and can help figure out where the transports would be located. There is also a thread in the main discussion (I believe) that lists everyone who would be willing to help with transport.

I just checked. Griffin is south of Macon, about 200 miles from me.

We do have members in GA who help with rescue and transport so maybe someone a little closer could help initially. If not (and the shelter agrees to adopt out of state), I would drive down and get them. I just wouldn't be able to drive as far north or west in that case, because I would tire out. I get pretty sleepy driving.

Let me know what you find out.

Doesn't AlanK live in Georgia? Maybe someone can PM him??? Sorry if he's already been mentioned or he posted. There is also someone named JeffreyZone that helps out in GA. I don't have his contact information though. He was kind enough to offer to help one other time when contacted.

I'm not sure about flying in this type of weather, but maybe http://pilotsnpaws.org/ can help out??? Just a thought for transport help.

It is wonderful you want to adopt Bentley. Since he is in a Georgia Shelter you will probably need a licensed GA person to pull him. Since spartan Mom
goes on Saving Georgia Dogs Forum I think quite a bit, she might be able to find someone for you. I am glad to hear that someone said they will foster him until you find transport AS Transport can take 2 weeks to arrange.
One suggestion I definitely have is for you to go to PilotsNPaws and Animal Rescue Flights and post a msg. that you need transport from and to where.
You need to follow their rules for posting and what the dog might need etc.
but because this is a long distance from GA to NE, this might be the best way for you to go.

You should register on Saving Georgia Dogs Forum, too, and you can post for help pulling, etc. on there

Wonderful offer from LauraBella if this would help Bentley.
Please let LauraBella know:

GA dogs?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi~

Am I correct in understanding that you are looking for people to sort of "relay" the rescue pups across the country, by car?

Excuse me if I misunderstand.

I am in East Tennessee. I live in Bristol, but I will be in Chattanooga (actually Cleveland, TN) on Friday. (I will be staying overnight if the weather is poor.) That's pretty close to the Georgia line.... I'll be driving home to Bristol Friday (or Saturday, weather dependent). That's a small leg of the trip...if someone could meet me to take them on.

Of course, I should mention that I will be in a car (mid-sized/Altima), so there would be no room for two large crates....

It probably doesn't help.... But I thought I would offer.

~L.

LauraBella ~ Exactly! If some tag team could be had cross country, I would be thrilled! I have yet to check on some of the other transportation options, but your effort could be the start of getting Bentley here sooner than later :)

It is now only one dog. Shaina was adopted by someone else yesterday before my rescue saviors got there. So only Bentley needs a ride. Whether or not he needs a crate, I'm not sure. That may be an issue for some who may be willing to transport but may may prefer a crated dog.

Follow-Up to LauraBella's PM

L ~ I'm still too new on the forum to be able to send PMs. Closing the gap, but not fast enough! If you can email me privately again with an alternate email address, I'll correspond with you more fluently!

this is a two day transport isn't it?
Not trying to discourage you, but a transport of this size will be very difficult to fill.

Please go to PilotsNPaws and post your need for a pilot from GA to NE.

Read the rules on the forum first, as they have a particular way of doing things.
