Meet The Sanders

Hello, We are Kenneth and Emily Sanders. We love our dogs and we are asking for your help to keep us all together during our upcoming change of duty station. 

We have two wonderful fur-babies named Nautia and Phoenix. We have been together as a family for 8 years. Nautia and Phoenix have always traveled with us during all our military moves. Even when we lived in the Middle East we brought our doggos with us! They are extremely important to our small family.  Our family recently received unexpected orders to Guam.  This was exciting news for our family at first. However, traveling with dogs to Guam was a lot more expensive than we ever expected. 

Due to recent changes in airline policies we cannot get our girls on a flight to Guam without using an IPATA shipper.  This is a very expensive way to travel.  They are charging $4,000 per dog. With little to no time to prepare for the financial hardship, I am asking all friends and family to help support us and keep our family together while we travel to Guam.  

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this. We pray that everyone would donate just a little and share this GoFundMe to help us meet our goal and bring our babies to Guam with us.

With Love,
The Sanders Family

We are submitting some close up headshots of the girls tonight to a different IPATA shipper. They will still be super expensive, but we are hoping for maybe a little bit cheaper of a quote. I sent the request to two different companies. I will def update everyone once we get the estimate back. Yall, pray for a miracle. In the meantime, just look at how darn cute my girls are!
