Puppy Rescue help from MSP area needed

We’re about to adopt our second Ridgeback puppy from Ridgeback Rescue US. “Harlowe” is currently being fostered in the Minneapolis / St. Paul region and I’m hoping to arrange a shuttle to get her to her new home. Is anyone interested in using their RV to fly her to central Nebraska and meet? I’m flexible and can meet at the airport of your choosing. KLXN is about 3 RV hours for me each way, is somewhat familiar, and has cheap fuel.

Winter weather can be challenging and flexibility is key. Sometime over the weekends of January 29 or February 6 are my targets.

A successful mission will net a trip report with kids and puppies, and much gratitude.

This has Pete Howell written all over it!

Doesn’t it! :D I almost PM’d Pete directly but didn’t want to put him on the spot. But since you called him out....

Gotta' move that puppy!

Here is what they look like years later after having been rescued by RV. At my desk this very morning.

Awesome Scoot! She’ll have a big brother, adopted from the same people about 1.5 years ago. Here’s Pete. He flew Delta, which turned into a goat rope.

No, but good folks here do this on a volunteer basis using their wonderfully RV aircraft. Just skip the thread if your not interested in the subject matter.:p

Yes, people use their RV's for flying rescue dogs all the time. No need to be rude about it.

I'm not a dog person but still I clicked -- what's not to like about a post with puppies? And RV-connected even!

I'd like to post pictures of my kitty but hard as I try I can't come up with an RV connection... darn.

My wife needs to use her Cricut to make some Vansdogforce swag. When my plane is done I can't wait to fly missions like this. This is one Vans and dog lover here that says keep the dog posts coming!!!
