From The Dog Lady’s mailbag: More than a dozen dogs, homeless because of Hurricane Laura in the gulf, boarded a plane and flew to Pittsburgh where they received a second chance and a new life. No Dog Left Behind flew the 1500 mile round trip in their Mahindra Airvan over the course of 15 hours.
This 7-year old Jack Russell Terrier, Gidget, is looking to hitch a ride from Portland to Philadelphia. Gidget was happily living with her family in Philly until two days after Easter, when she disappeared. Thank God she has a microchip because when she was found wondering the streets of Tualatin, a suburb of Portland, she was taken to a shelter who scanned the chip and found her family.
The only problem now is getting her back east. The family cannot afford to fly out to get her, and Washington County Animal Services does not have funding available for transportation.
As for Gidget, The Statesman Journal reports she appears to be in good shape. She lost about 5 pounds during her ordeal, but is still in very good health. No one knows how she ended up in Oregon, or how long she was on the streets before she was found.
If you can help with the transport, please contact Washington County Animal Services at 503-846-7041.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
