What is NBRAN Canine Railroad?
NBRAN Canine Railroad (or CR) is the transportation of rescued Brittanys from one place to another. In a CR run, someone volunteers to drive a dog a certain distance where they meet another person at a prearranged place, and the second person continues to drive, meeting another person if necessary, until the dog reaches its new owner. It really does work! And our babies get to their new homes without a whole lot of expense.Sometimes airlines can't fly brittanys because the weather is too hot or too cold.Sometimes the adopting family cannot afford the airline fees. Sometimes the brittany shouldn't fly. For these reasons, CR runs are part of the lifeblood of canine rescue.
The Brittany CR pages are a tool for putting volunteer drivers together with CR run organizers. Volunteers list themselves here, and run organizers can search for volunteer drivers based on their location, driving range, day of the week, etc.
Volunteers create their listings here, providing their names, their general location, email (and other contact info, if they like), how far they think they can drive, and the best days for them to drive. Their listings are not a commitment to drive on a particular day. Anyone who provides their information here is saying "Please contact me if the need arises. If my (family/work/life) schedule permits, I'd be happy to help by driving a brittany." Volunteers may make changes to or remove their listings at any time. The more potential volunteers there are, the easier it is to organize a CR run.
Run organizers can search the listings for volunteers for each leg of a CR run. Again, the more volunteer drivers listed, the better the chances of finding good matches for any particular run.
