Transporting of dogs

Post by dogsbodies2 » Tue May 27, 2014 1:05 am

So much of our week involves transporting dogs into foster; to and from the vets; collecting returned dogs where people can't organise friends/ family support to return or only willing to come so far or to already homechecked homes where new owner doesn't have the means.

Up until now we have not felt this section is operable as RR/ TR has to have a sufficient daily audience to jump into action.

We are using this forum currently for people to register they're ready; willing and able so we can call upon them as need arrives.

If you can spare some time doing a transport run not only is it immense fun but it's just as worthy a part of saving a dog's life as fostering; without transporters dogs may never leave the pound or reach their place of safety, and most probably, if not claimed by an owner, be put to sleep! :(

Lee and I have done many a transport run over the years and met some wonderful dogs and characters. :D I can't begin to tell you how worthwhile and satisfying helping these dogs get from one place to another is. If you're not on a tight schedule you get to spend time with the dog(s), take pics, take them for a walk, have a cuddle or a play with them, take them for lunch; and the trust they put into you, well, it just amazes me every time; it's almost like they've known us all their lives. Overwhelming!! :)

You don't have to do the whole leg of a journey if it's a 'biggie' or too far, you could possibly link up with others it just depends on how long the run is.

Here are a few pics of just some of the dogs we've transported and what fun we've had doing it! :D

Our latest transport run... This is Boxer 'Crazy' (her birth given name - certainly nothing crazy about her). 12-months-old, picked up stray - picked her up from North London pound. Just look at her... totally gawjus girl. In Foster Care. xxx

Ruthie - This was a 'biggie' all the way to Birmingham. Owners tried twice to destroy her but vets saved her life and we transported to kennels where RR welcomed her with open arms. We've since met up with Ruthie again and her new mum and dad who absolutely adore her; she is so so loved!! :smiley-gen132.gif: :biggrin.gif:

Totally gawjus x

Hi just new to walking the lovely gang at Guildford kennels and would be up for helping with transport. Not much help during the day as I work full time in Guildford but happy to help in an emergency or weekends. Tamsin

Hello, I have just filled out the Transporting questionnaire under the name of Joanna Nunn, however there was a small problem with the question that asked about the dogs we we're able to transport. It would only let me select one option, however, I am able to deal with all dogs, not just the staffies that the form shows. I look forward to meeting some great characters!
