Rescue is definitely a team effort – from our volunteers in the South who pull our dogs from the shelters and start them on their journey home, to our volunteers do intake in the North, to our volunteers who help with the application process, to our foster families who open their homes to dogs in need, to our adopters who lovingly give our dogs their furever homes.
Last week was a key example of how important this teamwork is!
Due to a mixup with our usual transport company, we ended up with 3 of our Sunshine Seniors without a ride north to their families! Our Southern volunteer Lisa sprang into action and pulled everything together to use our new Sunshine Van for a private transport for seniors Magnus, Big John and Molly directly to their new homes – how’s that for service! The two volunteer chauffers were from a fellow rescue in Mississippi that we’ve collaborated with before. They started their journey North on Thursday morning, and delivered the pups to their new homes on Friday. As two of the three have some medical problems, getting the private ride helped ensure they received the special treatment that they needed.
Without our Van, this would not have been possible. So big thank you to Lisa for pulling it all together, to our volunteer drivers, and to YOU our Sunshine supporters for your help in our getting the Van. We could not do it without all of you!
