Jason Collins, Mobile Mutts Volunteer

June 2, 2016 - Good Evening Everyone. As we pay tribute and morn the loss of a fellow rescuer I wanted to share something with everyone this evening. As you know this weekend is the Jason Collins Memorial Transport. I didn't have the opportunity to meet Jason in person, but he was someone who seemed to just automatically take to transport. Last week Kathy Kissane-Knapik received a letter from Paul McMurray of Milton, WI. He was grateful that Kathy got Jason involved with Mobile Mutts. Also in the letter was a donation from a myTribute site created by Louis Song, CEO of Proven Recruiting in San Diego, Jason was a founding partner. The donation was for $1800.

Jason has touched many lives during his time on earth and now continues to touch even more lives by helping Mobile Mutts continue to do what we are all here for, being the bridge to a new life for so many wonderful dogs. Thank you Paul and Louis, Jason shared his life with wonderful people. - Earl Stevens, Mobile Mutts

WHAT IS RESCUE TRANSPORT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Rescue transports are a leg-to-leg, ground relay transport, much like the old "pony express". We like to call it the "Underdog Railway". Mobile Mutts is a 100% Volunteer based rescue transport of dedicated animal rescuers and advocates.

Rescue transports are just one part of a multi-pronged process. Through the internet, animal shelters are able to post lists of their animals currently in impound and in need of rescue to their Rescues contacts across the country.

Once a rescue commits to take a dog from the shelter the transport coordinator is contacted to set up the transport.,

The coordinator prepares a "Passenger List" with all the dogs scheduled to board the transport, then sets up the routes and times and begins posting the proposed transport to their contacts. Mobile Mutts utilizes a "sign up genius" which is an on-line sign up for the drivers and overnight hosts to volunteer to participate in the transport.

Each transport consists of multiple legs averaging between an hour to an hour and a half per leg. When all the necessary legs have been filled with the appropriate number of drivers to safely and comfortably carry the number of dogs that are scheduled to travel a "Final Run Sheet" is sent out to all of the parties involved in the transport. This final run sheet details each leg of the transport; the meeting location in each city; contact information for each of the drivers; information on the sending shelters and receiving rescues; and detailed information on each of the animals traveling.

Then the furkids get on the road! Once the transport starts, the drivers are instructed to call the coordinator(s) or monitors once each hand-off is completed and the animals are safely loaded and on their way to the next stop. When all legs have been completed, the animals are picked up by the appropriate rescues and brought to their foster homes and begin their new lives!

"When all that stands between life and death is a ride, how can you say no?"
