Help putting together a transport

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am new here....I'm BindiCat1, and I have some cats that need to come to Missouri from SPALDING GA area. They are TERRIBLY overwhelmed right now , as many places are, with mommas and kittens. I have several that are ready for transport...BUT this is new to me, and I'm not quite sure how to go about setting up a transport.


Thanks so much, and god bless all you lovely animal loving people out there!!!

I have participated in cross country transports before, but have never initiated one, so I'm not real sure how they set them up. But, I think what you want to do is plan a route from Spalding to St. Charles and then come up with stops about every 120 to 200 miles. Then, contact rescue groups and humane societies along that route to ask for volunteers to take a leg or two of the drive.

One of the transports I helped with I learned about here on The Cat Site. The others have been through e-mail notifications I received from my local Humane Society.

I hope this helped!

Keep us posted on how it is going.

Also you can try http://groups.yahoo.com/group/billyboard. This group specializes in transports for the Spalding County Animal Shelter. They should be able to help. I have no experience with them, but just found the group listed on Spalding's petfinder bio here. Also there are several yahoo groups dedicated to transports you may want to look into.
