We always have fun doing transports! Don't get me wrong, it's work, too! Those crates must be cleaned and bleached between transports! We don't want to spread any sickness! The dogs and puppies we transport mostly come from the Adams County Dog Pound or from the Humane Society farm. Occasionally, we help other shelters. Also, transporting is not a clean job! None of our pound dogs or farm puppies have had baths! Our pound, even though the kennels do get cleaned daily, is old! The dogs get stinky! Picking up puppies from the farm, as I've talked about before, is a dirty job, especially on rainy days! But, you know what? I love getting dirty! I dress very casual. I'm ready to pick up and carry and hug all of my puppies! I wear boots to walk in the mud and puppy poo. I have plenty of paper towels, newspapers, bleach, and Lysol to clean up the pups and their crates during and after transports when they have accidents or get sick! I have plastic grocery bags and trash bags on board so I can throw the mess away at the gas stations. I have hand sanitizer to always use after cleaning or between handling puppies. Bonus rewards are playing with the puppies! I love all of the hugs and kisses I get! We overnight often, so we can get our pups on their way the next day. It's a pleasure to have them as our guests! We have helped save so many lives by transporting to vet clinics and to rescues. The puppies need to be vetted before they can travel, in most cases, or the receiving rescue takes care of the vetting upon arrival. All pups are spayed/neutered before adoption! The puppies are then put in foster homes or are boarded until the perfect home can be found for them! We often get pics of our pups from rescues and from adopters to keep us updated on how well our pups are doing! That always puts a big smile on my face! I try to post as many as I can, but sometimes I don't have all of the pics to post! Most of our transports to rescues are to the city, because we are so rural. We go to Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus. We go on longer transports occasionally. We love to try new restaurants after we deliver the pups. This is another added bonus!
Transporting is volunteer work for us! We can always use help, though! Anyone wishing to help us do transports or help us with gas and cleaning supply costs can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We had so much fun with these two sweet puppies we kept overnight! They had fun on our front porch and in the yard. Cici, our boxer was their Nanny. It's so much fun watching her with them!
