7/18 Transport NC->MA

Hey guys, I need help.
The transport for the rescue group is full and cannot transport Zoey for 2 weeks and we want her back as soon as possible. I live just north of Boston, MA but I can meet someone wherever. I would love to see if I can get some help bringing her back up from NC.

Anyone?

You need to break it down into drivable legs. Look at a map and trace the path so people know what areas you need.

What is a normal drivable leg for someone? I can easily figure this out (Fleet manager for a trucking company)
ie 100 miles per leg, more/less? is this voluntary or do i pay someone?

I would say 2 hrs most in one leg. That makes a 4 hour round trip for a person. There are paid transports and you can certainly offer to reimburse gas and time if you choose. Most people will volunteer. How was the rescue planning on getting her back up there?

How far are you from her? Personally, my dog? I would head out Saturday morning and go get her myself. Center of state to center of state is 13.5 hours. She's already stressed, you know there could be potential problems with strangers. Yup...I'd be heading out first thing after work on Friday. Will the people who have her meet you somewhere?

Or do any of your drivers go near there? Any that you would trust to pick her up?

if you want to tell us where the dog is, someone might be willing to do a relay transport for you...example: NC to Tenn , Tenn To MD, etc.

I'm seriously considering driving down there and getting her myself. 26 hour round trip run.

I trust all my drivers, but they don't have a kennel, and i dont expect them to have a massive cage in their small bunk. Caged in the trailer is out of the question. Having her bounce around in the cab is also out of the question since she loves to tear blankets up.

I did a 26 hour trip from Texas to PA in May with Jax. It's a long drive but perfectly doable...especially with TWO drivers! You could leave after work on Friday, stop for the night, and be in North Carolina midday on Saturday. Get Zoey and get on the road as soon as possible and be home Sunday afternoon.

I am on Long Island and might be able to get him from the city to one of the ferrys to CT.
