FILLED! AL-NY Transport June 10-11

This weekend we have a transport that is a little different for us. We have a mom and nursing puppies. We want to get them to rescue while the puppies are still under mom's immunity. Also, we don't need Friday legs as they are already with foster in Birmingham. 

Please note that they are being sent in a large crate and it will accompany them all the way to NY. Please make sure it will fit in your vehicle before offering to drive. Crate is 40" long, 28" wide, and 30" tall. We wanted mom to have room to move around some without stepping on her babies. 

This is a quarantined transport. No other animals are to be added to this transport.

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.
