Rocky start for this transport

29 Jan

Well, it finally happened — everyone,  including me — at a transport hand-off  Saturday morning in Chattanooga forgot the paperwork,  and we made the transport an hour late as we backtracked and front-tracked to get the documents in the same vehicle as the dogs.

We were transporting some puppies and a nursing mom and pup. Then we almost lost a dog at the hand-off in Nashville, when mommy dog broke loose and started scampering around a busy parking lot. We got her back, so all’s well that ends well, I guess.

But, two lessons learned. Always get the paperwork first, then transfer the dogs. And, a slip leash should be put on every adult dog coming out of a crate, if only temporarily. We’ve heard plenty of horror stories about dogs slipping collars.

As always, thanks to Mobile Mutts, to Lynn and Chrissy and this week to Laurie,  who coordinated the transport.

The pups were wonderful this weekend:

 

 

 

 

 

 

How could anyone do this to a puppy?

27 Jan

We transported some cats today from Dixie Day Spay to the Pet Placement Center, Chattanooga’s only no-kill animal shelter.

The cats were adorable, but there was one puppy on the transport, and this dog broke our heart. Somebody had dumped him in a drainage ditch filled with a caustic substance and all four paws were burned so badly that the skin had to be debrided.

He was all bandaged when we picked him up. He had been rescued from Cleveland Animal Control in Tennessee, a high-kill operation. But he’s going to a foster home to heal before being put up for adoption at PPC.

Here are some pictures from today’s transport:

What a little sweetheart

This was a regal beauty

Are we there yet?

Hope there's chow soon

Room to roam needed for Moses

27 Jan
I know this happens every day, but I just happened to be at Catoosa County animal control in Ringgold, GA at this particular moment. I was there pulling a friendly kitty. While checking out the dogs in the back, an officer walked to the euthanasia room with a carrier. Not on my watch…can’t happen! Someone brought the cat in a carrier. I figured cat in carrier can’t be too bad, but didn’t plan to leave him there to die even if he would have tried to eat my face off. Before I left another kitty came in a trap. I took him too.
As it turns out, Napoleon (so named for his large nose) the trap kitty ended up being a big smooshy butterball who wants nothing but love. He tested negative and is being neutered today. He will join our adoption program and hopefully find his new home soon.
Moses, the carrier kitty, would much rather be an outside cat. I wouldn’t say he is totally feral, but I’m not planning to pick him up and snuggle him anytime soon. He destroyed his cage overnight in typical “I’m feral, let me out of here” fashion letting me know he truly needs a safe outdoor home to go to. PPC will pay for his neuter, rabies and combo test if required by new home (although I don’t really agree with testing ferals). I just need someone to give him a place to roam free away from trap and kill happy people.
Moses is a DSH, back and white male. I do not see any bite wounds so don’t think he’s much of a fighter. I don’t have a death wish so will not be checking his teeth anytime soon, but he doesn’t appear to be very old. I can send a pic if you need it.
If you have a place for Moses, please let me know asap so he doesn’t have to spend a minute longer in a cage. He’s quite miserable!
