Sarge’s transport drivers needed
Last year, Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation saved more than 500 dogs via Sarge’s interstate transport system, and this year the group is on track to save hundreds more.
Typically, transport drivers go every three weeks — leaving Wednesday evenings and returning mid-day Friday. The group uses two-person teams for the drive.
Sarge's has set records for local adoptions each of the last nine months, but unfortunately, it is not enough to save the lives of all the dogs that need homes in Haywood County. The combination of local adoptions and transport to Northeastern no-kill facilities for adoption has proven highly effective.
There are two driving teams in place and Sarge's organizers want to have one more team to create a schedule that would allow each team to travel once every nine weeks.
Those who might have an interest in becoming a transport driver, or if you know folks that might be, are asked to contact Jim Ray, transport coordinator, at 734-8171 or at Sarge's at 246-9050, or fill-out a volunteer application at www.sargeandfriends.org.
