Please help!

I know that we have a lot of anonymous readers in MN and Iowa.

We really need your help.

If any of you do rescue transports or would like to donate your time to help save lives by transporting dogs and puppies from Missouri to no-kill shelters in Minnesota , please contact me at ep_tasha_eva@yahoo.com and I will connect you with the transport coordinators that I work with. All that you need is a few hours of your time and a vehicle and in return, you get the warm fuzzy feeling that you helped save a life.

We usually don't blog about our volunteer efforts (we save that for Facebook) but there are two large transports for a total of over 50 dogs coming up from Missouri shelters this weekend and there are not enough drivers. If more drivers are not found, these transports will fail and the dogs and puppies will be left in the shelters for at least another week.

Transport driving is very easy and the feeling that you get from helping save these dogs is very rewarding.

Here are some of the transport legs that need to get filled.

Beginning Location - Ending Location - Drive Time - # Miles - Scheduled Transport Time

Saturday

St Louis, MO to Warrenton, MO 1 hour 3 minutes 57.8 Miles 11:15 AM – 12:20 PM


Warrenton, MO to Columbia, MO 1 hour 5 minutes 69 miles 12:55 PM – 2:00 PM

Owatanna, MN - Bloomington/Brooklyn Center 55 minutes 55 miles 4:50 pm to 5:50 pm

(This is the transport leg that I drive and I'll be helping save 2 wolfhound mixes and a shepherd mix but if you have a small vehicle, there are lots of little dogs on this transport too)


If you live along this transport route and can help, please let us know.
