 We have had several members here offer to help get this abandoned dog from Winston Salem NC  to its new home in Cape Coral Florida. Lets get a list of members who are willing to help and where you are located so we can get a relay going

Someone get the NSA to plot ARFcom truckdrivers in the area.

Where's Sugar Bear???


Someone post a couple maps with say 3 best routes from Winston-Salem to Cape Coral.

Divide & Conquer. Say chop it up into 100 mile segments. Or 100 km, if there are any Canadians aboot....

I am assuming the dog is going on a trip now?  Don't know if I will be much help but my offer still stands to pitch in for vet/pet care expenses.  Where and whom do I send my $20 to?

I see what is going on now, I'll pitch in gas money when you guys figure out who is driving.

ARWIZARD said Sat is no good for him, but that doesn't mean the dog cant be on the road.  With that said if the most direct route that I posted doesn't work I am south of Atlanta GA and am willing to drive part of the way

Ditto.

Might be faster to hit 85, transition in ATL to 75, and ride 75 all the way down.

If that's the case, I can take a leg on 75.

Can someone do up a map with the various routes, and let people start penciling legs they could take?

(no photoshop or paint here at work)

I can get her down to Tifton, Valdosta at the farthest.
Link Posted: 8/22/2013 4:51:10 PM EDT
I don't live near the travel path but I grew up in south GA.  If i was still there i would take her from GA all the way to her new home. But, I can't so, I will gladly send $25 to $50 to help anyone with the gas they use to get this dog to south FL.  PayPal gift preferred.

I'm in Gainesville. I could get her to Tampa. I just don't know if I could pull it off this weekend though. When is the relay planned?

Well let's see what happens then. I'd be willing to run her down to Tampa depending on when it goes down.



Somebody IM me if I don't respond to this thread in a timely manner.

if the route comes thru Charlotte I can run from Between Charlotte and say Savannah or that neck of the woods.

I can get her to you no problem. I only have sunday off though. I may be able to do something Monday if we can all get a plan working. Valdosta or Savannah is about as far as I could go the other direction to meet someone..

With my work schedule, I don't think I can be much help in transporting but I will donate at least $25 for gas to someone who is.


Just let me know who to send it to.




I'm just North of Tampa (Brooksville, SR 50) off I-75. I might be able to help weeknights/Sat. 8 to 11pm or on Sunday.

May have to work this Sunday 8/25. If I don't, I could run from say Wildwood (I-75/ Fl. Turnpike split) to Bradenton area on I-75.

I keep thinking the more she changes hands the more traumatized she can be, she has already been abandoned.

If the OP could give her a blanket that would travel with her, that might help.  Not sure how attached she is to him and his wife in so short a time but at least it would have her own scent on it and be something familiar.  Might help to have her crated, too.  Dogs like the security of enclosed spaces.
