11 Lives Saved, Plus Unborn Puppies this weekend - 1-29-11

Hi everyone, very busy weekend in rescue but we had exceptionally excellent results. Rhonda in NC sent out an urgent message about a little pregnant female that was supposed to die Tuesday in a GASSING shelter and Sandra who sends us all endless pleas all day -- every day, for desperate animals across the country included me in the plea -- b/c of that Diamond & her pups-to-be are on their way to DE!
Thanks to Rhonda's contacts for the very first time in my 12 years of experience she is being flown by Kay Cross into ---OMG -- directly the New Castle Airport Thursday weather permitting - which is literally 5 minutes from my home!! Never had anything like that happen before!
Then another miracle, I contacted Cathy from Square Dog Ranch & she agreed to provide a foster home for her to give birth and care for her new kids. Cathy owns a wonderful boarding facility that we have used often. Diamond will have peace and quiet and a large area to raise her kids. When they're 6 weeks old my friend Dianne Hess from DE Puppy Rescue has agreed to take the babies and Diamond will then come to be fostered by LNF.
Then we got another e-mail about the Golden/Lab family shown here. Mom & Dad and (8) - 5 week old pups who were owner surrendered into a killshelter in NC. Owner surrendered are almost always euth'd no matter what -- due to lack of space -- people jumped in and scrambled and NOW they're also on their way to DE.
Not confirmed yet, have to wait until Monday, but hoping they will all go to another No Kill Shelter. If they do not have room <sigh> then Dianne is going to take the Mom & pups and we'll be taking the male. Not my first choice but we had to commit to this to save their lives. Thankfully, this weekend they're all being transported together by one person so the pups will not have to get possibly sick from being transported with lots of animals -- 
This all came together due to a whole group of people who have never met --all working behind the scenes day in day out -- Sadly there are not enough of these Happy Tails within our world -- but this is truly what I call "A GREAT DAY IN RESCUE!"   So -- how was your weekend?? Marleen
