Please help us get these lucky dogs to safety! We have six dogs on board so far and we are hoping to add more -- backup drivers are more than welcome. You do not have to fit all passengers to participate -- if you can fit ONE we need you! Please email me at tierbee@cox.net (@cox.net) or tierbee@aol.com (@aol.com) if you can help. Please crosspost!

THANKS!
