URGENT: Cargo vans and funds needed to transport 50 Canine Angels
dogs from GA to CT, Sunday, August 6
Cross-posting appreciated. Please
send to media contacts.
Fifty "Canine Angels" dogs in Georgia
have a place to go - but need help getting there
Rescue groups GraceWorks and KAT 5 need
vans to move them and contributions toward fuel
CONTACT: Larry Roberts of
KAT 5, lar@... (@...); or call: 678-362-0219
In a combined effort by GraceWorks Foundation and
KAT 5, fifty of the dogs from the closed Canine
Angels Rescue in Dewy Rose, Georgia, will be transported to a
no-kill organization in Connecticut, on Sunday, Aug. 6 (with an additional
transport now being planned). So far, we have sufficient drivers, but
not the vehicles, and contributions for gas costs will be most
What we need are four, 12-passenger cargo vans with the seats
removed. If anyone has such and could lend it to this all-volunteer
effort, or has connections with a vehicle leasing company that might consider
donating use of the vans, or at least giving us a substantial discount on rental
fees, we would greatly appreciate the help.
And, of course, with the price of
fuel, contributions to the transportation costs are desperately needs.
There are three ways in which you can donate, two of them will be
tax-deductible and all of the pertinent information about that and this
rescue and transport effort will be posted to:
Volunteers, dog trainers, and
animal behaviorists who wish to donate their time to the care and socialization
of the remaining dogs, or to arrange for an adoption (information on the
website as well as a catalog of adoptable dogs) should contact Cassandra
Koster of KAT 5, 740-972-6754.
