TRANS need 1 MS leg & overnight near Hickory, MS! for pit pups Saturday 07/15

Hello! Excuse my interruption, I don't live in MS, I live in TX.
I recently rescued two Pit Bull puppies. They were brought into the vet office I work at to be evaluated for an animal cruelty case. Both puppies were very thin, had no hair due to demodex mange, had severe secondary infections of the skin and intestinal parasites. The previous owner told animal control there was no cure for their skin condition, even though he had never taken them to the vet and was treating them with Udder Butter! The puppies were then taken to the shelter where they were scheduled for euthanasia.
There are some gruesome pictures here and here of what they looked like 6 weeks ago.
And here they are now.
I agreed to foster these dogs so they could heal and prepare for their long journey to an approved Pit Bull rescue group in New York who offered to pay their vet bills and adopt them out.

Little "Bobby Buttons", a six-week-old Pit Bull puppy, will also be joining this journey to save him from being put to sleep because of his breed. Once you see his picture, you won't be able to resist him! See?


The way it works is that individual people offer their time and their car to "relay" the puppies to New York in one hour shifts...
Since this trip is so long, the puppies will make half the trip, foster in SC for one week, and then complete the trip the following weekend.

There are a couple shifts in Mississippi that really need to be filled.
