To accommodate this, Zoey will be coming to the Kneesel Foster Home in Wisconsin, and Paris will be fostered in Wisconsin, also.
When several fosters come in to CRUSA, all from different areas (as opposed to our Rescue Missions through Dr. T in Missouri), there is a LOT of backing & forthing about transport arrangements. In this time of bad weather and economic troubles, the transports are even more difficult to arrange. Meanwhile, dogs languish in shelters when they could be enjoying love & comfort in their Foster Homes.
As it now stands, on Saturday, 14 February, Erica & Katie will meet in Illinois to transfer Zoey. On Sunday, the father-in-law of one of the Mason City shelter workers will be bringing Paris to Illinois on one of his truck drives; Katie Kneesel & Andréa will pick her up.
On Monday, Zoey & Paris will be vetted; arrangements made for Zoey's spaying (and maybe Paris, too, as we don't yet know her state of health), and both girls will be on their way to new & joyous lives as CRUSA RESCUES.
