We are trying to get Buddy back home to his daddy. This is the heart-wrenching email I got about Buddy:
My name is Douglas Rainwater. I live in Thomson GA. I'm hoping you can help me or point me in the right direction. Last year while visiting my daughter in MO. my dog was stolen. His name is Buddy. I couldn't find him. I looked in every ditch, called every vet animal shelter within 200 miles. I'll be 60 yrs old in September. I'll tell ya that last August is the worst month of my whole life. Will always be too. I left Mo. September 4th, 2015. I cried like a baby and still do even at this moment. Well my daughter called me last week and said a lady found him. When I was there I took him to the vet to get his nails clipped and preventive pills and she talked me into getting him a tag with mine and her info on it. Anyway I'm disabled, not allowed to drive cause of my seizures. I get $733 a month. The lowest price I can find to get him home is $895. Would you PLEASE... Look into helping in anyway you can??? I was a total wreck then and I'm now too trying to get him home. Don't get me wrong he will be home. I'll take a bus there and walk/hitchhike back. May not have a home to come to. As long as he's with me.
PLEASE... Look into helping in anyway you can??? thank you.
Please help me reunite Buddy with Doug. His daughter has reported that Buddy was bumped by a car and the lady that stopped for him saw his tag with the daughter's info on it. She says Buddy's paws are raw. Who knows what he's been through the past 8 months? Now it's time to get him home where he's loved.

All passengers are going to fully screened and approved rescues or adopters. No animals may be adopted off of a transport. If you are interested in a particular pet you have driven, you MUST go through the proper procedures and contact the rescue for an application. Keeping a pet that does not belong to you is THEFT.
Route and Legs 15 minutes has been added to each leg for water/potty breaks. All legs are flexible. Please let me know if you need to change anything. Also, I am not as young as I used to be. I make mistakes. Please let me know if you catch any errors in this run sheet!

THE FINE PRINT: CherryHarley Transports is not a business. I am a volunteer transport coordinator who has a network of volunteer drivers and we assist rescues in their efforts to save death row dogs and place them in approved adoptive homes. All rescues must have proper permits to import dogs and all dogs must have health certificates to cross state lines. Please remember that I am dependent on what the senders tell me about our passengers' temperaments. The very nature of rescue transport creates some risk for those who participate in it; even a good-natured dog may find it stressful to be passed from stranger to stranger and cooped up with unfamiliar dogs and may act in uncharacteristic ways. Neither I nor anyone associated with this transport can accept liability for any accidents or incidents that may occur during the transport. Thank you for understanding and volunteering.
