Yesterday Kelly Lackner & I drove to Lexington to meet a woman who drove Sophie a little further south where she met someone else for the next leg. These people have never met Sophie but they took several hours out of their day to take her a little farther to her final destination!!!
How cool is that! There are transports like this going on EVERY DAY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FOR DOGS AND CATS!!!! If you are interested please contact your local shelter or dog or cat rescue to let them know.
Sophie ended the day near Atlanta, Georgia where she will be staying until a pilot will FLY her down in his plane to Miami, Florida.
I was getting updates all day. My heart was so happy seeing people who will never meet Sophie again give her love & affection on her travels.
So while we were in Lexington we met Paula May Owens who runs Little Hills of Kentucky rescue (she pulls the dogs from the 2 high kill shelters near Cumberland lake & keeps them until we have room in our foster homes) and brought EIGHT dogs back up to Cincinnati to put in our foster homes!!!! Woo-hoo!!!! I took 4 pups whose momma was attacking them for Lady Gaga to care for.
Thank you to the following drivers & coordinators: Beth Kuhn, Chrystina Hoffman, Gretchen Hakola, Kathy Morgan Miller, Kimberly Rogers Byerley, Ramiro & Tammy Ramos, Ryan Quinn, Stacy Barnes Julian, Tina Erickson, Tina Phelps Weyler, Tricia Connell Johnson, & Wanda Hester. It truly takes a village!!!!!

There is a listing on Facebook of transport that needs drivers for every state. Just search for the group “Kentucky Transport” (or whatever state you live in). I’ve been driving for about 7 years, and it is truly a joy to be part of saving these wonderful dogs and cats. – Gretchen 05.27.2019
