    Hey there...

    so lots of people signed up in the original transport thread, so lets see if this thing could be put to use.

    Nothing is finalized but who would be able to transport a small dog... the route would take him from South Florida to NYC...

    Let me know if you could transport and/or keep him overnight if need be.

    I wish I could help, I'm in the opposite direction.
    I'll bump this thread up for you though.

    I'm in Orlando, and can help with transport if needed. Let me know. I'm not sure that I could keep any dogs over night, but I could possibly help with the drive.

    Worst thing is transportation for me is bad! I don't have a car, so it must be a pick up, I can't even meet anyone half way. But by the time transportation can be planned out I'll be even further away all the way down in Downtown Miami (moving out tomorrow morning, long story).

    We're talking about Valentino. Not sure if its going to be by car, plane, or what. But I have no money. So he's up-to-date only up to his 2008 rabies & his puppy shots, still needs his one year booster, which was suppose to get them this month, but the event I went to this Saturday ran out of vaccines (my luck lately!!) and I had to wait till May for the next time, but I don't even have that much time and May is when hopefully I should sort all this out and be able to take him back. I wish I could help (money wise), but I'm selling my coach purses & dog carrier on CL, just so I have enough to eat in the meantime till I find a job, which that is the only thing positive thing going for me, I WILL have a job soon to where I can provide for myself & two dogs.

    He's umm I'll say 8-10lbs? He is very good, loves to give kisses, but likes to get himself into trouble at times! Loves to play, but not too active and likes to watch tv even! Will make you laugh!

    Just thought I post this as it may help give an idea of who's in the line of the transport. . .

    Florida

    Fransheska
    Location: Miami, Fl
    Distance willing to travel: depends on situation, maybe an hour or 2
    Vehicle: Toyota Prius
    Extra Crates: No
    Pull from shelter: Yes
    Hold overnight: yes, but dog must not be Dog, cat, or people aggresive!
    Times Available: Weekends (friday night, saturday, sunday) my schedule really depends, some times during the week may be available
    all of this depends on situation

    ~Jessie~
    Location: Orlando, FL
    Distance willing to travel: 2'ish hours in either direction
    Vehicle: Acura TSX (mid sized sedan)
    Extra Crates: Yes... I have a 36 inch crate
    Pull from shelter: Possibly
    Hold overnight: Depending on the size of the dog
    Times Available: Mainly weekends... but I could do nights and random

    Georgia

    Kim (CharlieDog)
    Location Georgia, down Newnan way
    Distance 1 - 3 hours, any direction, including into Alabama
    Vehicle Nissan 200SX 2 door coupe. It doesn't hold anything bigger than a small dog (15) pound crate really. The dog would have to be okay to ride loose or in a seat belt harness
    Extra Crates Yes, Enzo doesn't use hers unless we're gone for longer than 8 hours. I have two medium and a large.
    Pull From Shelter: Depends on the shelter, and if finacial aid is avaliable.
    Hold Overnight Yes, depending on the dogs DA or DR though I can crate and rotate, Ozzy kicks up a fuss if strange dogs are here. He cal deal with it if need be.
    Times Avaliable: Most days right now, as I am unemployed. I'm pretty flexible, but DH has a rigid schedule and so we'd have to work around that, since we've got the one car.

    North Carolina

    Distance willing to travel: Anywhere in NC, possibly SC
    Vehicle: *SEE BELOW
    Extra Crates: Yes
    Pull from shelter: Yes

    *I do not have reliable transportation for travel.

    CorgiPower
    Location: Greensboro, NC
    Distance willing to travel: 3 hours
    Vehicle: Cargo Van

    Hold overnight: no
    Times Available: random

    Maya'sMom
    Location: Mooresville, NC

    Hold overnight: No if the dog is DA. Possibly if not, but it would depend on the circumstances.

    Vehicle: 1985 BMW 318/Ford F-150 w/top
    Extra Crates: I don't have any crates
    Pull from shelter: Possibly
    Hold overnight: Probably not - my dogs
    Times Available: Flexible

    Virginia

    Lilavati
    Location: Northern Virginia (DC metro Area)
    Distance willing to travel: 2-4 hours, any direction
    Vehicle: A Ford Mustang and an Eagle Talon. Small/Medium crates will fit in the Talon. Larger dogs need to have good enough manners to ride loose.
    Extra Crates: A spare 36" airline crate in storage . . .won't fit assembled in my car, but people are free to borrow it.
    Pull from shelter: Not if it involves making a misreprisentation. With the full knowledge of the shelter, sure.

    Location: Buffalo, NY
    Distance willing to travel: I'll say 3 hours each way, but it could be more or less depending on circumstances
    Vehicle: Ford Taurus
    Extra Crates: It is too big to fit in my car but I have a crate if I had to keep a dog here overnight or longer
    Pull from shelter: Not unless it was worked out with the rescue because I would not be approved as an adopter since I rent and they'd have to call my landlord

    I am in New Jersey--which puts me in between the Virginia people and the NY people.

    In NJ too..............I could head south and pick up, return- then hand off to Dr Mom who could head north
     
  20. OK, what you need to do first is plan the route. Then break the route into 2 hour or so increments, starting about 8am and ending before dark, probably should end at 6pm.

    Then put up the route and let people volunteer for the legs they can cover. Then you can work on the legs that are left.

    :D
