Maggie, who provided transport via her regular service from Ireland, still needs to have money sorted for bringing Max/Charlie to the UK. Can UK people who arranged this rescue element get in touch with Ann, the Dundalk pound rescuer, on this? Whoever arranged for this transport also needs to get directly in touch with Maggie. This rescue was not arranged through me but I did donate towards transport. If others wish to donate, please find the original thread or post here as I believe there is a shortfall.
I do realise the excitement is in getting the dog to safety BUT PEOPLE WILL NOT BE THERE TO HELP ANY OF US SAVE A DOG IN FUTURE if things like this are not sorted properly and promptly. Many of us in Irish rescue are very reliant on the few people, like Maggie, who provide transport, and we need her to be willing to help with dogs like Max in future. From Maggies' perspective, helping Ann will be seen as the issue here, which is very unfair to Ann and affects her ability to save dogs. So this is a very serious situation for a rescue to be left in.
I know all worked hard and meant well but the logistics must now be properly sorted.
This is the full extent to which I will be involved with this dog -- this needs to be taken directly to Ann/Maggie. Please let Ann know when the payment has been made.
