FILLED! AL-NY Transport Aug 27-28

Hi everyone! thanks so much for all the kind words on facebook. You are a great group of volunteers! Rescues who live near Monroe County Animal Shelter sent vans (and an airplane!) to pick up dogs and cats from the shelter. Yes we got cats rescued for once! 

And Kathy and Lee from HON drove a van down to Louisville and met a driver from Alabama Rescue Relay driving a van full of 10 dogs up there on Thursday. Those went to HON and ACRA. Thanks so much folks!

Now back to work as usual. Everyone is so grateful to Suncoast Animal League for pulling 64 animals in 3 days, but you know what??? I just counted and WE - that's me, Heart of Niagara, Akron Canine Rescued Angels, Sarah Dyess, and you who overnight and drive..... have been responsible for saving 98 dogs since Jan! You rock!!!! The hare may have rushed up to AL and done a one time awesome rescue effort, but the tortoise plods along every weekend, quietly doing good works. I am so grateful to you all, and love you!

Below is this weekend's transport.

email me at to make an offer
the most current version of this run sheet can be seen at:
must fill by Thursday 5 pm or will cancel

Ralph and Gunner, boxer mixes
George and Gracie, black lab mixes
All 4 dogs are "teenagers" and may be a bit unruly. I am not sure. With the crisis at the shelter, there was no time to do normal testing. I am going to suggest 2 dogs per vehicle unless you have large crates and can crate all 4.

I respond to ALL offers. If you offer and haven't heard back from me in 24 hours, please resend your email. 

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.
