Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Offer a Ride | January 27, 2008

We live in a city where public transportation is the primary method of getting from point A to point B.  The subway and bus system here is fantastic, and it’s not uncommon to see people toting their smaller, furry friends in carriers on their way to the vet’s office. 

Since we have a car (Ryan has to drive to NJ a couple days each week for work), we always make it known to friends that, if needed, we can give them a lift to the vet.  This is especially helpful to those with larger dogs that can’t travel on the trains or buses.  Also, while there are plenty of vets in NYC, some are more difficult to access by train or bus without making numerous transfers.   Some pets also get super-stressed thanks to the noise on the subways, so a safely secured ride in the car makes the trip easier on them. 

If you know of friends or relatives (especially elderly or over-worked individuals) who may need a hand getting to the vet, let them know that you’re there.  We always offer a ride on the weekends or whenever we’re free so that nothing keeps their pets from their vet appointments.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
