Transportation hasn’t been a big issue for us as most of our rescues and adoptions have taken place in Georgia. As you may know, though, Georgia has very loose laws when it comes to pet ownership, so we are finding ourselves with more rescues than adopting parties. Never has this been more prevalent than the recent attempts at helping to re-home all of the fire survivors at Flashpoint Kennels.
That being said, there have been several people around the country who have expressed an interest in adopting some of the dogs in other areas of the country. They have asked about our “transport process” and, as a small mom-sans-pop operation, we don’t actually have one. We’re hoping to change that with your help.
That, of course, will take volunteers. There are some flight options we have been looking into and hope to take advantage of; however, we are well aware of the stress that flight travel can put on some dogs and a few of our rescues are already sensitive or dealing with health issues. That’s when constant human contact and ground transportation become crucial.
We are honored to have friends of the website and social networking sites from all over the United States. If you would like to participate in a possible transport, please don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know where you live and how far you can travel in east/west or north/south directions from Atlanta, Ga. We may never have to call upon you … but we may very well contact you within a week! You never know … It would just be wonderful to have some names on file, should a transport become necessary.
