Update :( Foster family fell through!)

Howllo Fellow Hound and transport lovers! Do you remember the urgent plea I received from Celina, SPCA of TN with a soft spot for bassets?

She needs to get them from New Orleans, LA to Nashville, TN.

Date of Transport: Saturday, 9/1/07 OR Sunday, 9/2/07

Bonnie and Clyde were wandering stray, together, about an hour outside New Orleans. They ended up in St. Tammany Parish Department of Animal Services.Their time would’ve been up on 8/27/07, but boarding was found for both, and they were pulled on 8/23/07. They have now been brought UTD on all vaccinations, are actually HW neg (!), have had dentals, and have been altered. While the SPCA of TN is a relatively young organization, it has been doing great things for local animals. In addition, the Founder and President is, on a personal level, dedicated to assisting Bassets in the South.
