Last month I went to Iowa for a business trip. We found a little Jack Russel terrier on the streets. She was very skinny, very grateful we stopped for her and she also had her period. We took care of her for a couple days and we had to take her to the local veterinarians office before we were flying back to Florida because we couldn't bring the dog with us on the plane due to weather conditions (too hot). After a few days she was at the vet, nobody claimed her and the City was going to put her down. I could not sleep until I find her a home in Florida and a way to bring her over. Because is summer and is really HOT, the airlines don't fly animals. My search began for help in bringing her over. I google search and USHIP came up. I only had one very expensive offer and that was cancelled by them next day. I had hope that God would put the right people at the right time to help me saving this dog life. I claimed her, so she would be safe but I need a transportation company fast because the vet could only keep her so many days.... Then coast to coast came up, not only they DID NOT PUT A PRICE, THEY ASKED ME HOW MUCH I COULD PAY, they gave me moral support as well for the good thing I was doing with this dog. The only think I can say is that they were Angels sent by God to help me save this dog's life, that meant so much to me but I couldn't do it on my own. Thank you Coast to Coast and that God Bless all of you.
