I am willing to take Sherlock if anyone can figure out how to get him from Colorado to my farm in Missouri Unfortunately, living on disability I can't afford to pay the professional transport costs, but did have one opening here.

Kamia, if we could all get him there with just a tiny donation maybe it could happen. I live with other animals and have dogs who stay with me so I can not. . I would be willing to put in a bit or there were people who out that way who could drive him in spurts tha could also be a possibility. I live in MA and am not there but it's thought.

Is there a secure way we can make donations to get Sherlock to Kamia's farm?

What a horrible feeling to know that I can't help this woman and her precious companion.
Prayers and positive thoughts are being sent their way and I'm sharing on FB b/c it's been
forwarded to everyone on my friends list by others. Praying this will work out before she
takes her journey so she leaves with peace in her heart.

I've signed the petition on C2 and forwarded it with all the vital information on it to all on my list. Best I can do living in an apartment with restrictions to type of animals and number of animals one can have. I'm at the limit. In hopes a person I sent it to will be able to help or know someone who can. Very sad situation and this might be a good time for everyone to give thoughts to who will care for their animals if something should happen to them. Perhaps talk and make a pre-arrangement with someone you know.
