    Default thought I would share my exsperience with you

    So Yesterday I learned about the world of transport and rescueing without rescue ties. All I can say is Yikes!!!! I thought I was going to lose my mind. I have come to the conclusion that a stranger can be your best friend in a time of crisis. People I didnt even know dropped everything to help me rescue a deaf AB at MDAS who was scheduled for euthanasia. I learned what is involved in pulling dogs(which i've done before) and how it differs with different shelters. I was slightly perplexed by some things because I see a rescue situation as do or die; meaning if someone doesnt help this dog, it will die. But with the help of some new "great" friends who in my eyes are "angels" we saved the life of a deaf dog. I never thought that I could help organize something like this but I did and without the kind strangers he would not be going to his fur-ever home tomorrow. Happy to say I helped save a life4

    His previous owners dumped him at the shelter because he was deaf....The sad thing is when i had someone at the shelter pulling him he had a couple wanting to adopt him, the puller called me immediately and I had her ask the staff if they told the family he was deaf.Well when they did the couple said, "oh nevermind". I swear I think I am turing into a big baby because I have been crying every five minutes lol. I recieved an email from the first two legs and they said he is a "big luver", and he likes to ride in the front seat so he can be next you." Hopefully this will be the start of something great!! The adopter who is co-fownder of a rescue in GA wants to help pull some of the AB's here in FL. WHich would be AWESOME because there are so many. So I am trying to help her with contacting local rescues and pullers so they can help with some AB's.

    @gatorfan85 See it wasn't all bad was it. It felt good in the end to know he's safe now and going to have a great place to live. Brook just bid on a new house and I think she got it, more room for the dogs and safer yard for Burke. So aren't you glad I asked for your help, come on you know you are. You helped me when I needed it and I say thanks. Without the transport you did he wouldn't be going home tomorrow, just shows what team work does. You did a great job, can't thank you enough for the help.

    You know I am glad @Ann Farley Hamilton ...now I know how u feel when u do transport and know they are going to a furever home instead of Rainbow Bridge. I told you ...that you are a Saint. Just trying to do my part, hopefully we can all put ourselves out there and feel the joy of saving a life.
