In the event a work/dogsit/both party is created, I can and will use PTO to help, but cannot stay overnight due to my situation with my own dogs, but I can commute for a few days.

Is anyone acting as a point of contact?

I can stay overnight for a few days if needed.  About two years ago we went through a similar thing, and I was ready to jump in the car, but it turned out not to be needed.

I can't however take a dog long term right now, maybe in a few months.

That is David and Zeus. My 2 oldest dogs that predate my rescue efforts. David was my therapy dog for 10 years working with grief counseling for children and Zeus is just my companion animal. I have 6 dogs that I won't part with and these 2 are among those.

That is why I started my original thread begging for help for homes for the dogs. I also asked to please not clog the thread with useless worry and telling me what to do with my life. It became so clogged up and exhausted me so much defending my choices that I asked that the thread be deleted. Hopefully if I have the energy later tonight I later tonight I can restart a thread or at least attempt to that least attempt to that just lists my dogs with none of the b******* of other guys telling me what I should do.

I won't be able to manage transport. We'll have to find another way.

I've just been out with  All the dogs and have them separated into Kendall runs and crates for dinner time period now comes the big test. Getting open the shipping container and carrying 50 pounds of dog food into the kennel building to divvy up. I plan on carrying several trips with smaller bags.

I just finished the most strenuous part of my day. I went out to the shipping container and got those doors open which is difficult even when I'm feeling well and carried in 60 pounds of dog food. I'm sitting down for a few minutes and then I'll go give it up 30 bowls of kibble.

I can't take in a dog, but I would be happy to contribute a few bucks to helping take care of them.

I have sent you some money to help. You helped me a few years ago when I was suffering after my dad's dog was murdered.  I still have your book. If I can help more, let me know. My email is [email protected]

OK. I'm just updating so you know I'm still alive. I did manage to feed the 10 kennel dogs the 3 dogs that eat outdoors eat outdoors and the 2 dogs that eat free running in the house. That leaves the 15 dogs that are created in my living room.Unfortunately I forgot to carry in their buckets of food when I came in to sit down so after I rest a little bit I'll go out and carry their food in and dive up their bowls. This was harder than I anticipated. My left arm is still pretty weak and I kept dropping dog food bowls and dog food all over the place and I have trouble raising the damage shoulder up over my head to undo the latches on the dog's kennels while I held a bowl in my other hand.. I was too busy trying to figure out how to do this easier which is why I forgot the indoor dog's food outside
