  • Sweet Judd
    February 14, 2018 | Chris Roy | Your Rescue Stories,

    I really enjoyed this transport! Judd was a very, very sweet little Beagle. I brought my 14 year old grandson along with me, and I'm so glad that I did. We had the first three legs and Judd really needed someone to hold him!! Weather and potty breaks put us a little behind, but we made to Indiana safely. Can't wait to do another transport! Judd, safe travels to your forever home seret baby boy!!..

  • Determined
    February 13, 2018 | Chris Roy | Your Rescue Stories,

    The trip stared totally normal. I had completed a transport earlier that day and was rested up for the next adventure. I arrived in Davis and awaited my passengers. Once they were safe and in the truck we headed up the Hwy. We didn't make it very far when I noticed my truck slowing down and the rpm was climbing. Smh I dropped the transmission into 3rd gear. We kept slowing. I put it in second and she started moving again. I had lost 3rd and 4th gear. Ugh. I'm not new to this situation, unfortunately. I exited the interstate and found a back road path to my house where my backup truck was. I got everyone transferred over and made it to their over night stay in Edmond. Definitely a memorable experience...

  • Patch arrives in sunny Miami
    February 13, 2018 | Chris Roy | Your Rescue Stories,

    I had the honor of delivering sweet Patch to his final destination. This was my first transport ever. Patch slept the entire way until I was about to arrive at my meet up location with Lori who will be fostering Patch until he can be adopted., I quietly said, “Patch youre about to meet your new mommy” he jumped up and leaned in towards me from the back seat and gave me so many doggy kisses! A very sweet and handsome man..

  • Matilda
    February 12, 2018 | Chris Roy | Your Rescue Stories,

    Matilda was my first ever passenger. She was a bit nervous. As soon as she got in my truck she went to sniffing and inspecting it. We were riding along I40 when my phone scared her. She quickly got out of the passenger seat and made her way to my lap. It was a great experience. I enjoyed it a lot...

  • Gentle Souls
    February 12, 2018 | Chris Roy | Your Rescue Stories,

    Even though both babies were strong, they were gentle. They both jumped up and put their paws on my chest and I didn’t feel a thing. I gave them both a kiss on the head. They just wanted a hug…..
