Nice, France---A general strike of airport employees has delayed the trip for our seven little Riviera Rescue dogs. They are safe and sound with the Santa Cruz SPCA, waiting to fly to Nice. CAPS received news of the strike and measures were taken immediately to ensure the safety of the dogs--we weren't going to take any risks by sending them from San Francisco, where they will be departing from, to Paris, where they might be stuck in their crates for longer than they have to.
We all want what is best for these little guys and there was a possibility that if they got to Paris in the middle of a general strike, there would be no one to care for them while in transit.
CAPS, SDA and the Santa Cruz SPCA decided jointly that it would be wiser to send them at a time when we can be sure that they will be under proper care during transit in Paris in order to make their connection flight to Nice. The administrative complications are extreme, as the Riviera Rescue dogs must have all their paperwork done by a special veterinarian within 48 hours before departure. Therefore, they will now be leaving on Tuesday, June 29th, to arrive in Nice at 17:15 on Wednesday, June 30th.
Foster families have all been advised and are on hold for the arrival. The local animal welfare community in Nice, France is mobilized to welcome them at the airport. Everyone is very excited.
News: The mayor's office of the City of Nice is now proud to welcome the Rivera Rescue dogs!
This just in from the mayor's office:

Ils seront examinés de nouveau par le vétérinaire d'état en Californie 24 heures avant leur départ, et en suite, le grand voyage! Nous ésperons vous voir tous à l'aeroport de Nice Mercredi le 30 pour accueillir ces petits chiens de la fourrière Californiene.
