Dear Animal Loving Pilots,
We have a 5-6 month deaf female sheltie puppy needing to get to her adoptive home in Winston-Salem, NC. The adopter has two other shelties, one of which she traveled here 3 years ago to adopt that is also hearing impaired. It is not possible for her to travel to KS at this time and we feel strongly enough that this is the most perfect and experienced home for our little Kia that we are now searching for an alternative way to get Kia to her forever family.
I've just been informed that there is a very special Paws N Pilot volunteer in the Kansas City area named Sam Taylor, who's sister in law, Janice, adopted a dog from my rescue partner at Home for Disposable Pets in Riley, KS a few years ago and has currently inquired about another special dog to possibly adopt (1/2 sheltie, 1/2 min pin). I live approximately 3 hours NW of the KC area; however, bringing Kia to KCI or any other airport convenient is absolutely NO PROBLEM and we'd consider it a blessing if we are chosen to be assisted and hopefully get to meet Sam as well.
Although I have never personally had the need before now to inquire about this spectacular service, I've heard many heartwarming stories from my fellow National Sheltie Rescue Organizations that have worked with some of the kindest animal loving pilots in the world and hope we can add our happy ending story to the List as well.
Kia was born 4-28-09, she weighs 13-15 # and is completely vetted, to include being spayed. A Health Certificate and/or any other necessities are no problem, to include providing her with her own carrier and personal belongings.
I just finished wiping my eyes viewing Sam's trip to Canada with several lucky dogs......if I weren't less than a fancy of height...I'd almost want to be a PILOT myself.
Thank you all for the wonderful service your Organization provides and thank you for considering our request.
