No, we have never heard that one before. People wouldn’t do that, would they? You betcha they would and dogs and cats die every year as a result. Well this little guy lucked out; he was found in a locked house, simply left behind by people in the rush to get on with their life. Well if karma gets them for this, they aren’t going to be very happy with what’s left. Luckily this one was found in time and a rescue stepped up for him and a foster also. So this little one is on his way to places better than he was left in. For sure.
Today, at o-dark-thirty, I loaded up 20 dogs that were in boarding and off we went to the Van Nuys airport and the 10 planes that were waiting to load their precious cargo. As you can see from the pics, all are kenneled and ready to go when we arrive. I would like to say a very big thank you to the rescue kennel owners who stayed up all night getting everything ready to go. Once there and through check-in we found their plane and after many volunteers walked everyone for a final potty break, they were loaded and then they were airborne. So few realize the tremendous amount of effort to pull off 600 dogs and 10 planes going to 10 different cities with 10 or more rescues to be coordinated to meet and take them when they are back on the ground. It just shows what can be done when we all work together. And this all done by volunteers.
