We have had quite a month, much like all of the world at this point. With so many people sheltering in place, dogs and cats have been welcomed into so many homes! We were happy to be a part of 22 transports for 35 animals with a whopping total of 1,565.7 miles! Our first March transport was Coco with Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR). She hitched a ride from Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) to meet her foster parent at the vet. She was comfy with her new fleece blanket (we always need more of those, they are on our wishlist if you’d like to send one to our riders). We also got to give some rides to our foster, Joanna also from Second City including to and from her spay surgery; as well as to her ADOPTION! We mentioned that we are starting some long distance transports for our rescue partner Alive Rescue and we picked up a sweet crew including Travis and a Mama with her pups! We also got to visit Young at Heart’s senior adoption center where Raisin is now getting the best cuddles. We loved our tour and meeting all their dogs and cats.
We were so excited to celebrate 262 riders in 2019 and made a goal of 1000 riders for 2020! We started the new year with a shift at Chicagoland Rescue Intervention Support Program (CRISP) shift with Mutts of the Midway and met our first 2020 riders, 4 kittens headed to One Tail at a Time and named after characters on Grease! We continued our cat riders with Heartland Animal Rescue for a total of 3 rides for 8 cats! We had lots of canine riders too!
