As I mentioned some time ago, I'm a part of a Live Journal community called Drive for Life. This community helps animals in danger to reach their new homes, crossing state lines to get animals to and from shelters.
I initially made this post because there were eleven kittens in need of a ride this weekend, but the trip seems to have been taken down. I will repost it if the trip reappears.
I'll leave the above link, though, because the community really is a wonderful one. I drove a rescue trip for an elderly, blind Shar-pei, and it was so rewarding to know that he got another chance because of me. All it took was a few hours out of my day.
