I meant to put this up last week, but better late than never.
In the pandemic’s long line of sucky side-consequences, it has made it harder for Guide dogs for the Blind, the school that trained Trixie and Tansy, to transport puppies and some adult dogs in need, to where they need to go. Many airlines have stopped allowing dogs to travel in cargo and the puppy truck has become a less cool way to get pups around because the drivers can’t be physically distant. So now, they are trying to charter flights for their pups. But of course this isn’t cheap. They’re trying to raise the money for it. They’re also looking for anyone with a private plane who would be willing to help. Basically, any ideas of how to get the pooches from point A to point B safely would be greatly appreciated. Check out their donation page, or if you have any ideas of how to help, give them a shout!
The pandemic has impacted our ability to safely transport puppies and dogs to and from our California and Oregon campuses. We are grateful to Alaska Airlines for helping us transport our canine heroes. However, many other airlines have discontinued flying dogs in the cargo areas, and limited space in our puppy truck makes it difficult for employees to social distance from one another.
If you know someone with a private plane who may be willing to help, we’d love to hear from you! Or please donate to help pay for Emergency Transportation for our puppies and dogs!
