Folks, I have been trying for a couple of months now to get a dog from here in AL to Phoenix, AZ to a forever home. References have been checked, home visit has been done, but I can't get her there. She was supposed to fly out last night but continental out of Montgomery doesn't have a plane big enough to fly her (requires Giant Size airline crate). We were told we'd have to fly her out of Birmingham. The adopter was told tonight that Continental doesn't fly out of B'ham any longer.

Belle is a 5 yr old female WGSD. She was apprehensive about getting in and out of vehicles which was the main reason we were trying to fly her. She's getting better about that so she might be able to go on an over the road transport. Her potential adopter has been very patient, she started the process right after Thanksgiving. If we can't get Belle headed to AZ ASAP, I'll have to place her back up for adoption and start all over. I honestly feel that this is an excellent home for Belle or I wouldn't be going to all this trouble. Can anyone help me find a ride for Belle. I've asked for help setting up a transport for her before and no one replied so we tried to fly her.

Dawn

Someone I talked to asked about flying her out of Atlanta. It's a relatively short drive from Montgomery. Is that an option?

Dawn -

I sent you a PM regarding possible transport coordinators -

This long of a transport is going to need an experienced coordinator to formulate the route, secure the drivers, etc. It will likely be at least a 2-weekend transport with a temporary foster week in the middle.

I never got a darn quote from that company....growl!!!! Come'on friends this dog is sooooooo close to having her dreams of a forever home, PLEASE don't make her start all over. We need your help. I know gas is expensive (I'm paying upwards of $4.15 a gallon) but if the trip is broken up by several people it wouldn't be that much!! Can anyone find it in their hearts and schedules to please help out.

For right now this transport is cancelled and Belle is up for adoption again. Adopter is adopting something else right now and can't afford to do that and fly Belle out there even if we could get her out there. If we can work anything else out I'll try a ground transport.

I am in Chino Valley, Arizona. If Belle or another adoptee winds up going by vehicle I can help from the I-40 route to the 17 to Phoenix. Keep me in mind for future transport in northern Arizona area.
