Hi All!With this campaign and sent in donations, we are at 7k Canadian.We really need this van as it seems airlines may now be limiting the number of rescue dogs escorted per person. Limit was over 10 and could drop to 1 per flyer this is devastating to everyone in rescue! We really, really need to acquire a van, if we don’t, dogs will not get out and we will not be able to save all that need us. We are so taken back and we want to get creative and pioneer a new norm for getting rescues out, this van will be the way.

Please help if you can. Please share with family and friends! Please help us, help them!
