    I’m in need of arranging transport for a senior shepherd in a shelter in Ga. to my home in Ca. does anyone have any options for me?

    • isak says:

      There are several pet transport groups that can help you or direct you to help. Many can be found on yahoo groups. Go to this link and “join” one or some of the groups and tell them your situation. They are very experienced and knowledgeable about transport.

      Given the distance (across country), a good start might be Pilots ‘n Paws.

      Also, if you can give me a few more details, we can tweet it to see if anyone has more ideas.
