On Saturday, August 22, 2015 we had our first Maryland transport! We were leg #7 of the transport, transporters are scheduled throughout the entire transport for the animal when there is a long duration of travel therefore each transporter selects a "leg" that they are able to fulfill. In this transport two dogs Nora and Rebel were traveling from South Carolina to New Jersey, we selected the Elkton, MD transport leg 7. We had a great time meeting Leg 6 Elizabeth and then meeting leg 8 Tory. The dogs did great and it was an awesome experience in being part of a two day transport for two great dogs and working with awesome people to make the transport a complete success! Thank you to our supporters for the recent donations so we could make this possible, our transport portion was a 4 hour round trip and the donations helped cover the gas. Good luck to Nora and Rebel in there new homes!
When we saw the opportunity to go back and pick up the lab puppy "Sadie" that we had to leave behind on the rottie transport because her hold was not up at the shelter we jumped on it! We also picked up Timber and Chloe two husky mix dogs. The husky mix were rescued by All 4 Paws Rescue and Sadie was rescued by House of Hope at South Roberson Vet Clinic in Fairmont, NC. What a great trip it was! Good luck to all three and enjoy your new journey of love and hope!
On 8/14/15 we received an urgent message for an urgent transport for one small lab puppy and two rottie puppies. We jumped in the truck and off we went. We reached the shelter paid the $160 fee for the two rottie puppies and signed the paperwork. We could not pick up the lab puppy as the shelter would not release him because his hold was not up. After a back and forth issue concerning a person coming in to adopt the rottie puppies before the shelter opened I got the puppies in my truck and we were off! The puppies were so gentle and did a great job in enjoying their FREEDOM RIDE. The verbal disrespect from the individual at the shelter was worth the transport. Sometimes we have to endure the disrespect of others in order to do what our goal is and that's providing a safe transport for the animals. The one puppy laid his head on my should as to say "thank you". We thank NELR for rescuing these puppies and for the coordinating of the rescue and transport in giving these rottie puppies a new beginning at a great life!
The day we drove to Fairmont, NC to pick up the chocolate lab at leg #1 for transport we then traveled to HCAC in Conway, SC to pick up a total of 11 puppies! Four hound mix puppies and 7 lab puppies for rescue. The puppies had to be separated and crated as the 7 lab puppies had worms and the 4 hound puppies were fully vetted. It saddens me that these puppies had a bad odor but that doesn't stop us of saving lives! We headed to All 4 Paws Animal Rescue in Pawley's Island where they will get the much needed care they need and deserve! We know they are in good hands and wish them the best for their new journey of getting a forever home!
We traveled to South Robeson Vet Clinic in Fairmont, NC to pick up a handsome chocolate Lab to head to his new facility near Charleston, SC. We were the first leg (term used for multiple coordinated transporters) in this transport. He did a great job and when we met with leg #2 he created her with kisses! Might be because she had a box of treats? (lol) but it was another great experience and they had a great time in the successful transport of this handsome guy. We wish him all the best in his new journey!
We never turn down a transport so when we calculate a transport round trip will be 8 hours we don't hesitate. On 8/11/15 we picked up a set of puppies and began the 462.2 mile journey to their rescue! It was a long trip but well worth it. We wish the puppies a happy new beginning in their new journey of a happy life. Thank you Rogue Rescue!
Not every transport we get starts out as with a happy beginning, they usually start out with a scared, terrified lonely beginning but this transport started with a one year old little chihuahua who was found as a stray and turned into the animal shelter. He was attacked by another dog causing his eye to fall out. Surgery was done to put his eye back in place and sewed shut. When the help went out for a transport we were there! All 4 Paws Rescue saved him. He was the smallest transport to date. When we picked him up he was scared and whimpering. We immediately hugged him and loved him and comforted him during the entire transport. We transported him to the SC Animal hospital and laser center for treatment, he would then go to All 4 Paws to start a new happy journey. We told him how handsome he was and that little tail would twirl 50 mph. We know he has started his new journey of healing and love, no more loneliness. The FREEDOM RIDE for him and the transporter is priceless.
Today we got to pick up three puppies from All 4 Paws Rescue and travel down to Paws of Paradise in Mt. Pleasant, SC, they are so adorable and enjoyed their transport so much they slept the entire way! A peaceful ride for the puppies and the transporter. We are feeling great and wish the three puppies a happy loving journey!
