WE LOVE THURSDAYS!
Penny, Polly, and Phoebe waiting for the transport
Thursdays are the best days of the week for us - because it is transport day! The day all of our volunteer efforts pay back.
Almost every Thursday we have the honor to bring some of our rescued and rehabilitated dogs to the transport pick up location. From there they spend several hard long days making the trip to rescue groups in New England where there are loving foster and adoptive families waiting to receive our chosen pups!
So many hours and funds are sunk into turning a malnourished, once unloved dog into and adoptable family member. Sometimes it seems to others that we are crazy people working on a task that cannot be completed!
And then comes transport day:) We are reminded that there is a light at the end of the long, dark tunnel - at least for a few lucky pups....
This past Thursday - three Lab mix pups, Penny, Polly & Phoebe, left for their new lives. You can see what gorgeous girls they turned out to be! If it were not for the efforts of PAWS volunteers and foster parents, Lisa and Leanne, the girls would not have survived to see this day. A BIG "thank you" to Uncle Joe for saving these girls from their former life and bringing them to PAWS.
Happy trails girls!
