There are 6 puppies in need of new foster homes and transport within 48 hours or they are most likely going to a kill shelter. Not all 6 need to go to Ohio.... Dogster members are working hard to find them homes and foster homes and get them to new safe locations.

Their current foster situation was emergency and is tenuous at best... These pups are Dog of the Day today and really need a holiday miracle if they are going to make it to Christmas...

IF you live in:


and could help transport these pups to a dogster willing to foster them until new fosters can be found please post here and pmail Mellow directly.

Mellow's mom said she could do the final Indiana leg into Ohio if others could pitch in and get them to her.

There isn't much time left to help these babies.

Here are the links to the threads about the pups in:

Here's a proposed route. Since it is the holiday season I made the legs shorter, but if you're willing to take on a couple that would be great! Also, if you live along the way and can foster, that would be terrific! * denotes leg tentatively covered, ** denotes that leg is covered:
