Sunday, September 27th we picked up two legs of a transport for three dogs headed to Maryland from Georgia. We picked up Jax, Logan and Kenzie in Fredericksburg, Va and transported them to their rescue in Millersville, MD. Once we arrived we were greeted by several people which were Mindy from The Last Resort Rescue and the three adopting families of each dog. The adopter of Logan was so happy she sat on the ground crying while hugging Logan. We can not express how happy we are to make a positive difference in these animal's lives and the people waiting for them. It's the greatest reward to see so many smiles and people coming together to save the animals. We want to thank each family for them adopting a rescued dog and thank you to The Last Resort Rescue and giving us the opportunity to transport for all involved!
This little lady and big guy captured our hearts during their transport. Patti was so settle and Viggo was the opposite. Viggo was very skinny, you could see is skull, ribs and spine and we had to help him in and out of the vehicle. We made the transport extra comfortable by turning the entire travel area one large cushioned doggy bed for them. As we left Virginia and started the two leg transport to Harrisburg, PA they fell asleep and did not wake up until 3 miles from point of destination. It does our heart good to know these dogs feel that comfortable, safe and relaxed to snuggle up and sleep. We wish Patti and Viggo all the best in their new journey, we thank HHRT for the opportunity to be a part of this transport!
We attended Paws in the Park for the first time, fundraiser for House of Hope Animal Rescue and we had a great time meeting everyone and seeing all the dogs! Beautiful location in North East, Maryland by the water and great weather! The fundraiser raised $31,000 for House of Hope Animal Rescue! Rescuers, adopters, fosters and animal lovers of all kinds came out for this great event! We got to meet Miss Patti and Hope. It was great to have people come up to us and say they know us and heard our name and had great things to say about us. We look forward to next year's walk!
Thank you House of Hope Animal Rescue for having us!
September 19th we picked up the final leg of Francis, traveling from South Carolina to Maryland. Such a well mannered easy going German Shepard. We transported her from Virginia to her Foster Mom in Maryland. We wish Francis all the best in her new journey, and we thank HHRT for the opportunity to transport for them!
Cute little "Dax" was heading home and what a great transport! We transported him from Florence, SC to Fayetteville, NC. His new family had new beds and toys waiting on them along with "welcome home" balloons on the mailbox. He is truly a little happy lap dog and so happy. We wish Dax and his new family lots of happy years together! Thank you Kindreds Heart Transport Connection for letting us be a part of this transport!
We got the opportunity to transport two lucky dogs heading north from Florida and what a delight it was! Hamilton the bulldog and Snickers the pointer mix are two lucky guys and we were even luckier to transport them for two legs of the transport from Manning, SC to Fayetteville, NC. We drove two hours to Manning to pick these guys up and we even ended up one hour ahead of schedule. As you can see by the pictures they are such handsome dogs! We wish them all the best in their forever new homes and we thank Kindred Hearts Transport Co. for letting us be a part of their transport.
We drive to Pawleys Island to All 4 Paws Rescue load up the dog food and treats and we deliver! That's right we do food transports too. This load of dog food was delivered to Angel Dog Acres Rescue in Loris, SC. It was like Christmas delivering all that food! We love visiting rescues because we get to meet all the animals and the great people that work and volunteer at the rescues. We got to see some horses! It's always an honor to help in any way we can. Full bellies and warm hearts!
About a week ago we were contacted for standby transport for a very pregnant dog in a kill shelter in Darlington, SC. We got the call a few days ago to pick up "Lola" the pregnant Lab in Darlington, SC yesterday and transport her to her rescue home so she can deliver her puppies. No dog or cat should deliver their babies in a shelter, it's just not healthy or safe. We got up at 5:00AM yesterday prepped the vehicle for a comfortable safe transport for Lola, filled up with gas and packed our transport supplies and medical supplies in case Lola started her delivery during transport. We headed out for the 88 mile drive to pick up Lola. We arrived at 9:00AM and Lola was already breathing heavy and uncomfortable so with special care Lola was put in the truck and we headed out for the 60 mile transport to Conway. Lola was very comfortable and did a great job for her transport. We avoided every bump and pothole in the road we wanted her to be very comfortable. We wish Lola and her puppies the best in life. We thank House of Hope Animal Rescue for saving Lola and her puppies. We thank Carolyn and Jenn for their assistance. (update as of today 9/10/15, Lola is in labor and we are awaiting the pictures of her puppies)
We answered the call! We gladly transport much needed food to rescue facilities and fosters. We loaded up a truck full of cat food for the first transport then drove back to load up for a second load of dog food. We don't mind the physical labor in loading up and unloading because we know there will be happy full bellies! :)
On Saturday 9/5 we were leg 10 in the transport for a beautiful dog traveling from Florida to her new adopted home in Delaware! We drove to our meeting point in Florence, SC (88 miles) picked up beautiful Birdie and headed north to Hope Mills, NC to her next leg in the transport (79 miles). She was a happy dog but exhausted from a full day of travel. We are so happy for Birdie and her new family. It was an honor to be a part of her Freedom Ride to a new beginning. Good luck Miss Birdie!
