Rescue Dogs Heading To New Homes Were Stranded On A Bus For Two Days
WATERVILLE (WGME) — Twenty-two rescue dogs had to be rescued after they became stranded on a bus in Newport.
Paws Crusader LLC owner Kimberly Hammac drove 90 dogs from Texas to Maine, dropping dozens of animals off at homes and shelters along the way.
With 22 dogs left, they set out for Newport.
Their GPS unit directed Hammac, two volunteers and 22 dogs down a road they couldn’t come back from because the bus was too wide for the bridge.
“We were stuck,” says Kimberly Hammac, Paws Crusader LLC owner.
Hammac says they had to camp out for two days. She says she slept in the driver’s seat.
The Humane Society in Waterville opened their doors to the dogs and their rescuers.
“We’re glad it gets the dog a break, even if it means more work on our end,” says Lisa Smith, director, Human Society, Waterville Area.
The journey home remains unfinished until Paws Crusader can find the $7000 dollar repair bill.
