I just wanted to let everyone know that ALL the doggies are on the plane and will soon be headed for the US. It's 2am here - I couldn't sleep until I got the phone call that all went well at the airport... I just got off the phone with Jen and both she and Crystal had no trouble getting checked in thanks to our WONDERFUL friends at Delta - a big hug for Marisa, Alba and Tiziana!!!
Elena, our hero and awesome dog transporter delivered Noa, Carlitos and Inocente to Crystal and Laura at the Madrid airport (there is no way to thank you enough, Elena!!). Aventura from Scooby made the trip in the van just fine with the girls. The two podenco puppies from Virginie and Fermin are together in a crate and doing just fine.
There is no way to adequately thank each of you for all you have done to make this possible. Maria Jose and Fermin from Scooby, Maria Jose from Kimba, Cristina from Amigos De Milord, Isabel from Protectora Caceres, Virginie Labat from Passion Levriers, Elena, Michael Rodrigue - none of this would be possible if not for your undying dedication to the animals of Spain. God bless you for the amazing efforts you each make every day to give these sweet souls a chance at a loving life. Everytime I am able to be a part of bringing one of these incredibly special dogs to the US I feel a renewed sense of hope. Thank you for trusting me and the other amazingly dedicated members of GRIN to care for these special dogs, and please know that each and every one of them is very special to all of us.
The members of GRIN also wish to thank Crystal, Laura, Jen and the folks of Operation Scooby for all the incredible work they have done to help the animals of Scooby.
Please forgive me if I failed to mention anyone - everyone involved deserves a very special thank you!
Abby Christman - GRIN
