Just passing this along......................
I should also add that whenever possible do not transport alone take someone with you. I learned this the hard way, lost in the forest of NC at 1130 pm with no cell phone service,running out of gas and no gas station for upwards of 30 miles. NOT fun
 
CROSSPOSTED:

My purse was stolen from my van yesterday during a transport. The man
approached in his car & asked if we were "selling puppies"; I said no
and explained briefly about transports. I walked away to continue
transferring the pups. He walked up beside my van, reached in &
grabbed my purse from the front seat. He had left his car running,
pointed toward the exit, so he was on the highway in seconds.

It occurs to me now that transport exchange spots are the perfect
place for robberies- lots of women, lots of purses, lots of
distractions, because we're focused on the dogs. This happened during
daylight, with 6 transport cars present. I've had people stop
previously to ask what we were doing, so I didn't think it was
unusual.

So, please be very careful, especially at popular transport exchange
spots. This happened at exit 83B, the Holiday Inn on Parham Rd in
Richmond , VA , but it could happen anywhere. The guy was white, had
brown hair, in his 30s, in a long silver or light colored 4 door car.
Wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, shorts & tshirt. The license plate
was registered to someone else, so that didn't help in identifying
him.

He could have also stolen a dog or puppy like this, which would have
been a million times worse.

Heads up, fellow drivers, and please pass the word. Leave your purses
at home or lock them in your trunk and don't take your eyes off anyone
who stops to ask questions. (Especially don't let them approach your
vehicle.)

Thanks for posting this, Mechele.

I'm going to move it to the Rescue board.
