This is for the Delta Humane Society which is based in Rayville, Louisiana (which is where the transports start). Round trips take 2-3 days, so this is a great match for retirees. This is not for the casual volunteer. We need reliable, upstanding citizens to help us save the lives of dogs in this very rural area. We do this through our transfer program which moves unwanted strays out to our screened rescue partners located between MD and New England. Drivers are our lifeline to those rescue partners.

DHS provides the veicle, crates, bedding, food, cleaning supplies, and gas money.
