A Canadian trucker founded a group that gets rescued animals from where they are to where they need to be – all with truckers who volunteer space in their rigs for a furry co-pilot. Now the group is looking to expand into the United States.
Josh Aldrich has had plenty of cats and dogs in his truck. But according to CBC, the founder of Fur the Haul of It has also had deer, raptors, and even a baby elk. On their Facebook page, there are photos of dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, rabbits, squirrels, and more.
Aldrich and his fellow truckers bring the rescued animals to their forever homes. Everyone there is a volunteer.
“I like to call them friends,” Aldrich told CBC. “Some people call them suckers that like to help me out.”
Despite the good-natured ribbing, Fur the Haul of It does provide animal food and carriers for the drivers who donate their passenger seats to the cause.
While the group started in British Columbia, Canada, it’s looking to expand down into the United States. For more information on the group, or to inquire about getting involved, you can check out the Fur the Haul of It Facebook page.
