Courtesy post for Sheri:
Hi Everyone,

Sissy, Porky, and Mugsy are three sweet Pugs with *very* sad stories... see below under "Passengers" for more info. You will definitely earn karma points for 2011 and start your new year off right by helping these poor kids get to rescue!!

All three have a ride from OH to Buffalo, NY this Friday 12/31, and I don't want them to miss this ride!! I was thankfully able to secure an overnight in Buffalo, so they can start out bright & early on transport to VT on Saturday 1/1. Each will be traveling with leash/collar and their own small crate for transport. Please see below for what's needed and let me know if you can help - please provide your transport/reference info privately, even if you think I have it! This transport will be fully monitored, and permission is granted to crosspost (just not to craigslist please).

Thank you!!

PASSENGERS: (traveling with leash/collar or harness, id on collar or harness, vet paperwork, H/C, each with their own sm. transport crate)

1. MUGSY, 2 y/o fawn male Pug, to be altered upon arrival with rescue. Has gone through a lot of changes lately, and he's a sad little guy - he was 'rescued' off craigslist 2 weeks ago from an elderly woman who made him live outside, and the 2 Pugs in his new home don't like him... all these changes plus the crappy food he was eating have made him sad & his stomach very sensitive :(

2. SISSY, 5 y/o fawn female Pug, spayed. Sweet girl, needs eyedrops for cataracts, crate-trained. Mom to Porky. They lost their home due to foreclosure, and their distraught owner placed them with relatives who didn't end up caring for them very well (keeping them crated for many hours at a time without much attention, after having free run and lots of love/attention with their mom) so they're coming to rescue.

3. PORKY, 4 y/o fawn male Pug, neutered. Good boy, traveling with seizure meds, crate-trained but hates it. Son of Sissy. He and Sissy lost their home due to foreclosure, and their distraught owner placed them with relatives who didn't end up caring for them very well (keeping them crated for many hours at a time without much attention, after having free run and lots of love/attention with their mom) so they're coming to rescue.
