I'm getting a foster pup and we're trying to fill a leg (or two, or three) to get 2 pups (one is going to Canada)from Autumn Acres to at least Buffalo, NY.  If anyone can help get the pups to their new foster homes it would be greatly appreciated.  Contact information is in the itinerary.

Please crosspost widely...

Transport for 2 Newf pups going from rescue to their approved foster home.

Run is set for August 12 & 13th and as a back up on August 19 & 20th.

Transport goes from Quincy, IL to Albany, NY & Ontario, Canada.
One foster mom will come over border to Niagara Falls to take to Canada and the other to Albany, NY.
All legs are flexible, so if you can do just a part of one leg, just let me know.
