We saw Charlie listed in Tennessee in a tiny animal shelter, he was a stray. We immediately said YES to taking Charlie into our rescue for care and adoption however, on the day of pick up for transport Charlie had passed away. The reality of deceased pets at a shelter is they are bagged like trash and buried at the landfill. Karen did not want Charlie to end up like that she reached out to the Shelter Director and requested his body be cremated and returned to her for his final resting place. We as a rescue gladly paid for Charlie to be cremated at the nearby facility in Tennessee, his ashes were transported to South Carolina where he now rests in Karen's home. Our hearts are heavy but all of us here at RTWC are about doing what's best for the animal and that's exactly what Charlie received the best final resting place with love. Run free at the Rainbow Bridge Charlie!
A small world, the founder of RTWC Karen was at an appointment in speaking with an individual she learned the person had an injured duck that needed help. She said no Vet could assist, Karen offered help, she made contact with Kim at Carolina Wildlife Rehab Center about the injured duck, Kim said yes to assisting with the injured duck. Karen drove to NC to pick up the injured duck and transport to Kim at CWRC, it appears a snapping turtle got a hold of the duck's beak. Talk about being at the right place at the right time, this was one of those times. We are so happy to assist with getting this injured duck the help it needed.
We had multiple transports throughout the month from all over and enjoyed each one, thank you to their rescues, fosters and transporters. The Village is growing and we enjoy being a part of the Village! Happy trails to each rescued pup!
Over the past 2 years we have continued to work on transports either on the ground or behind the scenes coordinating or monitoring transports. We have new team members as the more experienced teams have moved up to assisting with local rescues and assisting with animal cruelty cases and more. We will begin posting transports again. We've remained active with all aspects of our rescue and transporting leaving little time for website admin duties but we are branching out focusing on public education, first responders for disaster relief, cruelty cases and more. We appreciate the continued support! Please check back for upcoming transport(s) updates!
