    With all thats going on lately, I think we need to make something positive out of it.

    So I think we should set up a transport list. It's something we've done on another forum I'm on and I like the idea. It's like a "go to list" thats quick and easy when we need transporters.

    If you'd like to be part of this list, post your information on this:

    Location: [state + rough location within state]
    Distance willing to travel: [x number of hours, in what directions]
    Vehicle: [enough info to indicate size]
    Extra Crates: [yes or no to whether you have an extra crate for the dog(s)]
    Pull from shelter: [yes or no to whether you are willing to pull from a shelter]
    Hold overnight: [yes or no to whether you can hold the dog(s) overnight]
    Times Available: [times you're available, e.g., weekends only, weekdays only, random]


    I'll leave it up for a couple weeks maybe then put together one big thread with all the people willing to help and there information.

    Sound cool? :)

    Guys, THIS is why Chaz is so great!






    I've already talked to Renee :D I'll bump this everyday, but I'd like it if when I put together the next thread with ALL the transporters by state, for that one to be stickied.

    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.

    Hold overnight: Yes, or longer in an emergency, so long as the dog is not DA

    Times Available: For transport, weekends only, for hold overnight, it can probably be arranged at any time.
