OMG! I am absolutely overwhelmed with how generous people are! Yes, Mr. Brooks called Jean and talked to her. He then called me back and told me he thought she was genuine (not that I really expected anything less) He is going to call Jean's references tomorrow and then call me. If all goes well, Cass and I will hopefully be headed for Wyoming within the week!!! For everyone that helps by sending money....(haven't discussed this with Jean, but I'm guessing it will be ok with her). We will keep track of who and how much. I will keep my gas reciepts and post them here. For any extra sent, we will do a percentage and send back what is not used. You can PM me with your name and address and I will PM you with mine....and my phone number.

What if everyone interested in donating PM you so you know how many are doing it and what they would like to donate.

Then figure out cost and I would include money to get food along the way. Also an extra bag of dog food so she can be transitioned to a new food slowly.

Then just divide it up between everyone keeping in mind the donation amount of each person. Then you won't have to worry about sending any refunds.

Excellent idea! That would work great. As best I can figure it will be about $150 for gas. Cass and I won't eat much, but we will be going thru Nebraska and they have Runza huts!!...LOL I'll find out what they are feeding her now and we'll get a cost on that. It should be a day trip...long day but with 2 drivers not bad.

Awwww, she is beautiful! I'm having a really hard time containing my excitement, and I'm just so afraid that something will go wrong. What if Terrell Mill doesn't have any records of me bringing my animals in? What if Karen doesn't work there any more? What if she doesn't remember me? It has been 11 years since I took my animals there - actually closer to 12 years. So many things could go wrong! I have turned into a babbling idiot! :eek:

Am I going to get a warning over calling myself an idiot, or does that just apply to other people?

I am about 4 miles west of Torrington, which is 85 miles northeast of the Wyoming/Colorado border. I hope she will be happy here, and I will everything in my power to make sure she is happy here. Thank you for your faith in me, sweetgoats! :hug: I was also a bit mystified about the call and wanting to check with my vet at first, but then I got to thinking about it. There are a lot of people out there who would 'adopt' an animal just to sell it to a research laboratory or do satan only knows what with it. If you do some research about putting ads in the paper for kittens or puppies, the first thing they say is to put a price on those puppies and kittens to help prevent sick people from getting them. I was completely shocked by what I found out when I did a little research.

Mr Brooks is just wanting to make sure that Jill is going to a good home....a shelter would do a check too. He is also concerned about me getting shafted for the travel costs....although I tried to reassure him that I truly didn't think it was an issue. (recently, I was almost a victim of fraud for selling a horse....classic case of "oops, we sent too much money to you. Can you just cash both money orders and send the extra back?"....Luckily I didn't fall for it or I would have been out a couple thousand dollars.) This is also why I will be keeping receipts and posting them here so you can all see them...I'm a little paranoid at the moment and with you all being so generous....well....I just want to be held accountable...

I'll say again...I simply cannot believe the outpouring of generosity with this. I never expected this when I started this thread...I was just hoping for some suggestions of how to keep poor Jill going until we could get things settled somehow.

Oh, and GoatCrazy??? You have "crazy" in your forum name and you want us to correct the "idiot" part of your post????? LMAO You and I are both waiting impatiently for tomorrow to happen. If you call Mr. Brooks in the morning...he will be at work. Just leave a message on his voice mail and he'll get it. He's planning on calling your vet during his 10 am break and then will call me right after that. So we should know by 1030 central time tomorrow....keeping fingers, toes, arms, legs, etc crossed that he ok's this!!

Valid point! :lol: Hey, that's a good idea. I could call right now, leave a message, and he would have it in the morning! Thank you! Oh wait - today is Sunday. How do I know he called from his office?

She is beautiful! She looks like our border collie, Frances, who is devoted to dh! She listens to me, but spends all her time sitting on his lap, snuggling!
Best of luck with the transfer!

I had no questing that he would. God will take care of all his own.

Now you need to let us know if you get enough money for the trip. i know a lot of people have great intentions but things happen and they find out they can't do it after all. Life happens and we have ALL been there.

Please everyone, if you are going to send money to help with the trip, PM kccjer and let her know how much so she can make sure it will cover her trip.If you can not we totally understand.

Please don't feel bad. I have not been able to help others when I wanted to and I can here. Just prayers for a safe trip would be great.
