The young man had never done a dog transport before, but Lucky Lab’s Texas transportation manager, Stephanie Broughton, talked him through what he needed to know.
Usually the rescue uses crates and slip leads, but in the race to get the dogs out of harm’s way Connor didn't have a chance to round up supplies. “I told him how to tighten the dogs’ collars, and to take one dog at a time to the vehicle. Also, it was important to secure each dog in his truck so they could not jump and run away with the door open,” Broughton told The Dodo.
When Connor arrived at the pick-up point in Corpus Christi several hours later, he successfully loaded up Thelma.
