Transport coordinators – help needed

22 Jun

Coordinators, we need a little help finding a rescue for Tara.

We need a foster home or a good no-kill shelter or an adoptive home up north for this black lab girl, who really deserves a shot at a good life.

Tara is only 8 months old and she will be spayed before being transported. She was pulled as a stray several months ago from an animal control center in Tennessee, where she faced certain death.

She is currently living with a rescuer who cannot keep her. She is really good with people. She may have a food aggression issue with other dogs, but lots of strays have that.

I volunteer to drive the first leg if we can get her on a transport to safety.

Please contact Beth at Underdog Railroad

This event is sponsored by the Outdoor Chattanooga agency in partnership with the city’s Office of Sustainability and Education, Arts and Culture, and Chattanooga Parent Magazine.

Adoptapalooza, a pet adoption and education event, will be held on Saturday, April 21, in Renaissance park on Chattanooga’s North Shore.

All animal-oriented organizations in the area are invited to participate, both profit and non-profit, including animal shelters, rescue organizations, adoption centers, spay/neuter organizations, veterinarians and other animal health groups, businesses, animal trainers, and those who provide services for animal lovers and adopters.

We are hoping to have both dogs and cats available for adoption on the spot.

10’x10′ exhibit spaces are available for $25. To register or for more information, email ruth@outdoorchattanooga.com or call Outdoor Chattanooga at (423) 643-6888.

You may take more than one space, and we recommend that if you plan to offer animals for adoption on the spot. Tents are recommended but not required.

The event will be held on Saturday April 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Renaissance Park on Chattanooga’s North Shore, in conjunction with Outdoor Chattanooga’s Outdoor Expo and Gear Swap in nearby Coolidge Park.

This FREE event will be open to the public. Information about pet adoption,  spay/neuter, microchipping, dog licensing and other pet-related services will be available. And we hope to feature some doggie-related entertainment, such as disc dog performances and dog training instruction.

The dogs we helped save this weekend

5 Feb

Wow, what a transport — 12 dogs at our end, going from high-kill shelters in Georgia to foster/adoption at MARS in Minnesota. We had a full van.  Special thanks to transport coordinator Sheri Jackson. Pictures are from the hand-offs in Chattanooga and Nashville.

This boxer was a lover not a fighter

Time to go potty now?

Some of the dogs were VERY friendly

Can you say Catahoula?

Load 'em up, head 'em out

A well-watered tree at the transfer point

I'm being very patient, but I want OUT

I am SICK of being in a crate

 

Me Too!

 

Me Three!
