Blaine, Washington – More than 50 puppies were rescued in a transport operation that took place on July 25, 2019.
Several adoptive families from British Columbia waited anxiously for their puppies to arrive by transport from Texas. The undertaking was arranged by Black Dog Rescue Society of BC, a team made up of dedicated volunteers from Canada and Texas committed to helping abandoned and sheltered dogs.
Excitement rose when the trucks arrived at the designated meeting area, the Cost Cutter parking lot in Blaine, Washington on Thursday afternoon. Watch video now.
Cindy Mulock of Langley, made several applications to local Lower Mainland agencies in an effort to adopt a dog when one of their family dogs passed away a few months ago. She never heard back from any of them. My daughter Stephanie Carr followed the same procedure as Mulock, although she did receive responses back. All the puppies she applied for went to other homes.
Stephanie adopted Pecan, a tiny puppy left in a Houston, Texas alley, through Project Outbound. Pecan left Texas on July 21 and travelled five long days in one of several air conditioned transport containers. When she was released we could see she was weak from the journey, very skinny and not socialized. Surprise! When we placed Pecan in the car we found out she was a he.
Stephanie Carr posted on Instagram, “Welcome to the family, Oslo! I’m so happy that we will be your FURever home! Can’t wait to explore the world with you!
I rescued this beauty from Texas through Project Outbound. We picked him up yesterday and he came straight to me after 5 long days on the road. Life with us will be everything you’ve dreamed of and more. Time to never stop waging that tail, smile from ear to ear, have a full and happy belly every single day, and a heart full of love!”.
The Project Outbound website states they connect adoptable dogs with loving families regardless of the distance.
Puppy rescue operation
Black Dog Rescue Society of BC said 25 dogs are being delivered to Cloverdale for their new families to pick up and five others taken to adoptive homes in central BC. Several other dogs were continuing their journey down to Portland, Oregon to join their waiting families. The rescue operation makes at least two runs a month and involves a network of rescue societies.
Volunteer Cindy Archer said, “We save dogs from high-kill shelters, strays on the road, surrenders or any dog that needs help.”
There are two drivers for each air conditioned transport. They drive twenty-four hours a day making stops every five hours to walk the dogs, feed them and let them run around a little.
