Well, I hope that title got your attention.
I would like to suggest that for those of you who have limited space, but would still like to help with rescue, that you become involved with rescue transport. Sometime, we move dogs all the way across the country.
As for the high, it is amazing what this will do for you. I have one coming up Saturday, involving 21 dogs--eighteen pups under eight weeks, and 3 adults--
The dogs will be handed off to me by another volunteer, and I will drive them 100 miles to the next one. You meet some wonderful people, get some great dogs into foster or permanent homes, and get a warm fuzzy feeling from doing it.

you're absolutely right, LucyLou! i was involved with transporting a bichon for a bichon rescue, and boy. it was TOUGH to hand him off to his new mommy, lol. he was a 16wk old mill puppy (born in rescue, rather). swweeeeeeetttt as can be. the buttercup pouted for about five minutes, lol, but i sat and told her how lucky she is to have a mommy, all the toys she can dream of, treats whenever she needs, a biiiiiig bed to sleep on, a carseat, and all the other things that puppymill dogs dont get to do.

after that transport, i was beaming for DAYS. i remember telling everyone i knew about what a rewarding and empowering experience it was. it was a "new" way to spread the word about rescue, especially breed rescue! many people give up after not finding what they "want" at their local shelter, not realizing that there are still several groups that will do whatever it takes to get the "right" dog in the "right" home, even if it's a couple states away!

what groups do "un-local" adoptions and might need help transporting? rescue and breeders, chime in now, lol!!!


ann marie and the "what!?!? i almost had a little bichon brother????" buttercup

I'm on several sites that post rescue needs for various states. One is Five State Rescue which takes in part of the eastern states--around Virginia. I'm also on another from Louisiana. One rescue group posts to another. Sometime, when I'm taking a trip, I just post that I'm going, and I load up. Once, I had two pugs from Louisiana, a lost Bichon who needed to go to Texas to its owners, and a hairless dog from a mill I picked up in Louisiana and transported to Austin, Texas. Her final destination was California. I've even taken a cat to Ohio once.
If you are interested, I would suggest you check out Yahoo rescue groups. There is also a group from South Louisiana that works to transport Labs to the Northeastern states.

Here is just one example of what is listed tonight:

This is a Carolina Dal Pals Dalmatian Rescue transport. We are trying to get Hallie a sweet female dal from Greenville, SC to her new forever home in Prairie Grove, AR this Saturday 4/2/05. She has a ride to Nashville, TN. We just need to fill the rest. This transport will be monitored and all homes are pre-screened. 1 legs needed - Time flexible. If you can help email [email protected] (dalpals @ sc.rr.com). Thanks.

This one needs to go from Tennessee, through Georgia, and on to Florida.

Meet Mynx, a Black German Shepherd Dog that needs help to get to her approved
rescue. She will be pulled by her foster, who can only hold her until this
Saturday, so this transport is URGENT!

Benji is such a loving member of the family, I rescued him, along with a lot of others! lol, my dogster pages are proof of that. It is soooo important and it is a second chance at life and for love. You are a beautiful person for helping.

My Maltese Mommy store has a small forum, it is my Maltese Mommy & Me group you can post there if it will help your efforts. I rescue on a small scale compared to what you do.
