Mom works full time, and always seems busy. But when she read a post on Facebook a couple of weeks ago about a doggie transport, she thought that maybe she could help out. A few pups were making their way to their furever homes, with stops along the way, from Birmingham, Alabama to Brattleboro, Vermont. Luckily, a leg of the trip for the pups was from Allentown, Pennsylvania to Paramus, New Jersey. So she contacted the organizer and was emailed the particulars. It's amazing the detail and planning that goes into these transports! Her mission was to pick up Eve, a sweet dachshund mix with mobility issues and Max, a 4 month old dachshund puppy.
Since it was cold, she packed a few fleeces into the car, along with paper towels. Our buddy Denise came along to help out. She met Celeste in Allentown for the pickup, who gave her lots of tips for future transports, including always bring water, bowl, treats and give the pups a chance for a walk.

Next stop, Paramus, New Jersey! My friend Denise kept the two pups warm in the back seat, while they shared lots of kisses. I'm sort of a big dog, so being with small dogs was a real treat *shaking head* for the people.
(Denise Bilquin, her husband and Max)Mom was so happy to be able to be a part of this and is looking furward to more transports in the future. Kudos to the rescues and to the people that organize these and to all the drivers that make them a success and that help save lives. I know she's looking furward to doing another one (as long as she doesn't get any big ideas about bringing anybody home, bol!).
Many thanks to Kathleen Hamilton and All American Dachshund Rescue for their hard work arranging these transports and finding our pals their furever homes!
This just goes to show you buddies, even mom can make the time to help be the change fur pups in need. She's so glad that she did!
Thanks fur stopping by!
