Fundraiser Details

Scooter has been publicly seeking a new home for seven months. DCIN has been able to find him one...as the crow flies about 2400 miles. But in true distance it will be much longer as he has to drive the mountainous roads of British Columbia, often go west (young man) to make it east, and go through United Airline's hubbing system for his air cargo flight. More than 3600 miles. He also has to see vets three times for his vaccines and two different travel health certificates.

Scooter will be a well-traveled fellow.

DCIN is seeking donations to help with the costs of this transport. It also is hoping to obtain donations for the dental procedure that Scooter will need when he gets home. Scooter has needed a dental (with extractions) for more than a year.

You can read more about Scooter on his blog page here.
