Yesterday we answered the call for a transport for a very big boy, a 4 year old beautiful Great Dane Mix dog. I wasn't sure he would fit in my truck be he certainly did the whole back seat! He was so gentle and sad and very skinny with a tumor on his chest. I showed him some love throughout the whole freedom ride, gave him a blanket and hugs. He did so good on the trip. When I picked him up from the shelter he did not want to get in my truck I rubbed his head and told him "this is your freedom ride" then he got in. It's almost like he understood and knew I was there to help him. He was rescued by All 4 Paws and they greeted him with smiles and hugs! We wish the big boy a happy loving new journey!
Saturday we answered a transport to help unload dog food at a rescue facility and then minutes after that we answered a transport to pick up this little guy from the shelter and take him to the same rescue then we answered a transport to haul some of the dog food from the rescue facility to another rescue facility. How great is that! It all worked out great and completed all three transports. We went to the shelter and picked up this little guy named "Buddy" he was so scared but when I picked him up he was all hugs and licks!! He rode very well and enjoyed his freedom ride. I could tell he was heart broken from his family giving him up after 10 years but I know Buddy is going to have an awesome home and enjoy the rest of his journey!
Today we traveled a 6.30 hour round trip that started at 8:00 am, we picked up the two three month old puppies, a boy and a girl from the animal shelter. They had to be out by tomorrow so we did the rescue today. They did so good, slept the whole trip. I guess the ride made them sleepy and they were safe and I just had a sense they knew it was their freedom ride. About one hour and a half into the trip on 95 South we seen a goat with an orange collar in the medium eating grass, so we pulled over googled for the local animal shelter and called them, gave them our location and what we were seeing they said they were already in route. We were so relieved to hear that, we wanted the goat to be rescued, it was apparent that the goat got loose from somewhere. I arrived on time at Palmetto Animal League, as I carried the puppies in they peed on me :) guess they were "relieved" (lol) but it was a great transport! On my way back I checked the spot where we had seen the goat, they had detained the goat and were waiting for the owner or a trailer so they could safely remove the goat for the highway. We are so relieved the goat had been rescued! It's been a blessed day and we wish the puppies a happy loving journey and wish the goat a safe travel home.
Yesterday we had a great opportunity to pick up 3 wonderful dogs in two different transports. First transport was a trip up to Whiteville, NC to the shelter to pickup sister dogs from the kill list, my heart broke when I picked them up, they had mange and odor but that didn't matter, I loaded them up in the truck and we were off! They did so good and loved their FREEDOM ride to Pawley's Island as they were rescued by Aussie and Me Rescue. I talked to the girls the entire trip and they were so happy. After drop off we headed out another hour drive to Mt. Pleasant, SC to pick up Skylar a young lab and deliver him to his foster family in Myrtle Beach and he too did a great job on the transport, even through the bad storms. We are so grateful for the transport and enjoyed our day long of travel, we are blessed by the goodness we feel in our hearts in knowing every transport we do saves lives. We wish the sisters and Skylar a long beautiful life with their new journey of hope.
Yesterday we had a transport for a little 8lb guy, a Pomperanian, then another little guy was added, a pointer mix, then a 3rd one was added a 7 month old lab. All three dogs were to be destroyed at the shelter but great efforts from April and All 4 Paws we came to the rescue! The Pomeranian and pointer mix were delivered to All 4 Paws, the lab "Little Duke" was delivered to New England Lab Rescue in Fairmont, NC. I had a great time picking up these beautiful babies and safely transporting them to a new journey of hope and kindness. We saved three dogs lives and we did it with a big smile and one mile at a time! Good luck to all three doggies!
We are so excited to be transporting a Pomeranian today! We are picking him up from Horry County Shelter and taking him to a beautiful rescue facility, All 4 Paws in Pawleys Island. Another life saved!
On July 4th we fulfilled another dog food transport! We were so excited, we picked up from a location we transported too before and delivered to a wonderful place Mutts & Mittens. We had a great 4th of July knowing we delivered cases of dog food to a wonderful place helping our 4 legged friends! Another pawsome day!
What a great day for a transport! We left at 8:00 am drove an hour to our pick up location, loaded up a pallet of cases of dog food and then headed to our next location of drop off. The ladies, Allison and April are super nice ladies! Here's a picture of the drop off. Transport complete. Super pawsome!
