More on Kevin

Yesterday I posted a picture of Kevin Patrick (I love that name) in transit as a rescue.
Late last night, I received this picture of him at his foster mommy's house. He's still very confused about what's happening to him...
I was only 1 of 7 transporters.
Included in his rescue was the original intake team.
Then there was the vet and spa team.
One person arranged the transport.
One person coordinated the transport. (we report to her as transfers take place)
The foster parents.
There's also the people that maintain the bookkeeping records, vet records, and their blog, and their web site, inspect foster homes, inspect and check out potential adopter's.
And...lots of people who make donations! 
It takes a team...
 OOh...and here's how he got his name:

With a donation of $100 or more, you can name a rescue...

 #4371 Kevin Patrick: M, black brindle, DOB 9/27/05 - donated by Jan and Stan D. in memory of their nephew, who was only 28 years old when he was murdered in December 2000. Kevin was an Air Force vet who served as an MP with a great canine German Shepherd as his partner.

I sure hope that handsome little fellow soon finds a forever home and his travel days will be over. It is so great what all of you do. The back story on his name was quite touching.

Steve, Love retirement! Get to do some of the things I've always wanted to do.

The reason he was donated is so sad, that vet being murdered who served in the AF with a German Shepherd as his partner.
I'm positive the little guy will have a good life.
What a team you belong to. Whoo Hoo

Manzanita, He wasn't donated because of that... Those people got to name him because they donated over $100 to the rescue...and they named him after their nephew who was the vet and died. Sometimes it's hard to explain. Anyway...I belong to the transport team. We move the dogs to either their forever homes or to a foster home. I love it...

Such joy and sadness together -- but the little dog now has a place of comfort and love -- barbara

turquoisemoon said...

Randy, He's a beautiful lil guy.

Barbara, yes...both joy and sadness. For me, the hardest part is not being able to explain what's going on. You just wanna let them know that they're safe now.

Oh, I got it twisted but that is sad then too for the couple who named him. What a kind thing to do for their nephew.
I notice in dog parks, people donate benches and trees when they die.

Manzanita, People do love their pooches. It's nice to see the goodness of people...
