Stella is a sweet Plott Hound that's been at the Paris shelter way too long. She was scheduled to be put down for being there too long, but we begged, they gave us extra time to find a place for her, and we succeeded. She's going to the San Antonio SPCA.
Stella has a ride from Paris to Austin on Sunday with the sister of a shelter volunteer. That almost gets us there, but not quite. I've been seeking ground transport to cover the gap without success. I can't let Stella come south until she can go all the way, so we're seeking your help. Stella can be transferred at any airport from GTU to AUS. It's about a 50 minute flight, one way. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather co-operates.
There's also a possibility that we'll have another hound to add to the passenger list. Buford, a Black & Tan Coonhound, was found wandering the streets of Round Rock. Since his original adopter gave him away and can't tell us to whom, we've put up signs and are hoping he'll come to claim Buford this week. If he does not, Buford will need to go back to San Antonio to the rescue group that had him originally. Pretty iffy at this point.
Thank you for helping the homeless animals!
