Long-Distance Transporters

Golden Rescue has an amazing transport team.  These volunteers answer the call every single time transport is needed…whether it be an emergency that needs to be dealt with immediately or less urgent transports.  The ones we’d like to tell you about now are the ‘long-distance’ transporters.  These are angels who are willing to get up at the crack of dawn, drive great distances (8 to 12 hours), waiting for hours at an airport for arriving Goldens, and spend a largely sleepless night in a hotel with their often smelly, exhausted but grateful Golden who is experiencing their first night in a foreign land.  The next morning these weary travellers prepare for the long journey home, which often includes a delay at customs.  Whether it be New York, Boston or Chicago, this group is there every single time they are needed.  Thank you Cheryl-Ann, Jane, Janet, Janice, Kevin, Michelle, Monica, Patti, Paul, Robin, Tony, Val and Viive!  Our out-of-country Goldens especially thank you~ it would be impossible to implement our ‘Rescue Mission of Love’ without you.
