Legacy Boxer Rescue along with Humane Society of North Texas, Ellis County SPCA, Second Chance Boxer Rescue, Heavenly Pets Rescue and One Tail at a Time Rescue is embarking on an important journey to get boxers to safety!
Special thanks to the Laske Family of Oklahoma
for lending us their trailer.
Thanks to the combined volunteer efforts of these groups, we are going to make history with our first transport of boxers from Texas to the Northern States!!
For anyone that regularly visits our website, and more importantly, our "boxers in need" page, you know that over the past several months rescues in North and Central Texas have been overwhelmed by the number of boxers needing our help. With over 70 boxers currently in foster care at LBR, we're simply too full to keep up with this boxer deluge.
So, the volunteers at LBR decided to join forces with the above named organizations to transport a number of boxers to boxer rescues in the Northern states. Due to better spay/neuter laws in the northern portion of our country, these rescues are seeing fewer boxers in shelters, hence, they are able to help us out with our ever expanding problem of finding proper care for these boxers in need here in Texas.
Beginning Sunday, July 1st, 2007, we will begin readying the chosen 9 boxers for their trip North. We will be picking up the individual boxers at their current location and transporting them to our "staging area". In the staging area they will be vaccinated against Rabies, groomed and given a clean bill of health for traveling by a local vet.
On the morning of Monday, July 2nd, they begin their journey north. LBR has procured a diesel 3/4 ton pick up and well ventilated trailer for the journey, to assure these boxers are as comfortable as we can possibly make them for their journey "home".
LBR Volunteers, Melaney Munday, Amy Brown and Kim Ashley, have generously donated their time off from their actual jobs to provide the driving force behind this momentous transport effort. Never before has LBR attempted anything so radical to help boxers in need, and we are thrilled with the willingness of these other organizations to help us in our efforts. We could not do it without them.
The Legacy Express road trip will consist of over 2,880 miles round trip. There are several expenses involved as well such as truck rental and fuel. The estimated cost for the total transport is $1,500.00. LBR will be covering the costs of all expenses for this transport. And, while LBR is on a tight budget because of the 70+ boxers in our care who have recently needed some very expensive vet care, including two Femoral Head Osteotomy surgeries (for Dora and Andi), we feel that this is money well spent to save these 9 boxers.
LBR would appreciate your financial support for the Legacy Express!
Please keep an eye on this site because our transporters will be in touch with us through the entire journey and will be sending updates and pictures all along the way.
Thank you for your continued support!!
