need your help

Hi My Friends.  I know you dont hear
much from me as of late
but I need a little help and I am pretty sure you guys will have the answer.
A friend of ours wants to adopt a
special needs pup that is now
living in Hanksville Alabama at a rescue.
Because of its special needs,
there is no way it can fly in the
cargo area..
If anyone knows of a way for us to
transport this pup other than
by a major airline, could you please
let My Vickie know.
Happy Wordless Wednesday to you all.


  1. I found this link - not sure if this helps or not.

  2. You might be able to hitch a ride on some rescue transports. Maybe some of those in blogland will have some ideas.

    Good luck - that is such a wonderful thing to do.

  3. I wish we could help Bert, we really do- hopefully something will present itself soon.


  4. The site that Blueberry recommended looks like it might be a good place to start.

  5. Woof! Woof! Hope the site Blueberry mentioned helped out. Also post it on FB ... Golden Love. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  6. There are SEVERAL rescue groups that have Transport folks for different areas... Like Khyra's mom does nearly EVERY Sunday..
    FaceBook might be a good place to ask too.

  7. Ok, we can't be of much service, but we will power up our Scottie wisdom an send airwaves out for stuff to happen to get that pupper there!

  8. If you search online, there are ground pet transporters. That how I got from Pittsburgh to CA

  9. Yep, I was gonna say da same thing bouts rescue transports and just hitchin' a ride. I hope you can find a way to gets your friend where it needs to go.

  11. We hope someone can shed some light here for you, Bert.

  12. If it needs to come through Ok-lee-homa, let our Mommy know!!! Good luck to them. XOXO

  13. I don't know the cost constraints but when I googled "canine transport", I found a bunch of companies that will drive a dog long distance, door-to-door. E.g., I have no idea how much they cost nor do I have any experience with them. I have read good things about people's experiences with some companies like these, though.

    Hope this helps or that a totally free solution works out!

  14. Hi..I am one of Berts fans :) There is an organization called " Operation Roger" that may be able to help. Truck drivers transport the pet for free. Check it out @

  15. Sounds like you have some good suggestions here, I was thinking of rescue transports. Good luck!

  16. or on Facebook:

  17. Try to put the word out on the CB (Cat Blogosphere) and on Cats With Blogs on FB. There have been some pretty amazing transports organised lately. Also, talk with Khyra and her Mom. They do a lot of driving for rescue organisations and might be able to help you in the right direction.


  18. Wish we could help Bert, but you've got some really great suggestions already.

    We will however keep our paws crossed for the pup and that he finds his way to his new Mama real soon.

  19. We don't know how to help on that one, but we will keep paws crossed that this special pups transport is a complete success!


  20. I wish I could do something, but I'm far away. But I hope this pup will find the way to his new furever home soon.

  21. We are in Canada, but wes is purraying for your furrend and their new pup!

  22. Post the question on the Team Unruly blog, I know they people on that blog that do transport. They might be able to make some suggestions...

  23. Hi Bert, It would be so great if some blogger would step forward to help out. Praying this guy gets to his new home.

  24. Burt,

    I read about this man on Coffee and a Canine.

    Dog Is My CoPilot is dedicated to saving animals' lives by providing air transportation to abandoned cats and dogs. DIMC decreases the number of animals killed in shelters and increases shelter adoption by flying animals to areas where they are more adoptable.

    DIMC works with established nonprofit animal rescue organizations (AROs) to coordinate flights. AROs pull animals from kill shelters (odd phrase, don't you think?) and move them to safety in humane rescues, breed specific rescues, and foster/furever homes. When the distance the animals need to travel is too great for over-the-road transport, DIMC swoops in to fly them.

    Our typical mission is more than 600 nautical miles. There is never a fee to the sending or receiving ARO.

    Here is his link.

    Good Luck.

  25. OK, well you has enuff suggestions but I just wanted to woof that I found that you moved and I found YOU and now that you moved, you does not end up in my spam folder any more, YAY!

  26. If you have facebook go online and look for transports. There are so many that are just volunteers doing a one or two hour leg at a time. PTTR (Paws to the rescue) is one of them, if you can't find them, e-mail ( I'm sure I have one of their e-mails somewhere!

  27. I hope you find a way to help your furend!

  28. Hey Bert! We're trying to get caught up with our friends. Your post about doing a S&R really was so beautiful - God bless you, your Vickie, and everyone who does that. You're truly doing God's work.
    Play bows,
