Going Above the Call: Contractor reunited with missing pupmelscavellistafford
Here at Western Flyer Xpress, we strive to go above and beyond for our drivers and contractors.
Driver/Contractor Relations Specialist Sue Sickley did just that when she helped Mark in 2175L reconnect with his dog Icy who had gone missing at a truck stop in Oklahoma.
Mark called Sue Friday morning distraught that his dog Icy had run away from the truck stop he was at and had been missing for 18 hours already.
At this point, Mark had to get back on the road and was devastated about leaving while Icy was still missing. Mark left Icy’s crate, food/water bowls, and her favorite toy behind in hopes that Icy would return to the truck stop.
He notified employees at the truck stop to be on the lookout. Sue felt awful for Mark and decided she would help him reunite with Icy.
Sue called her daughter Emily in Illinois, who volunteers with an animal rescue, to get some advice. Emily quickly jumped into action and called Mark to get a picture of Icy and the last location so she could post it in the Oklahoma City Lost Pets Facebook page.
She also called several Oklahoma City animal shelters and vets offices to see if Icy was there and let them know she was missing.
Emily’s post got over 150 shares and members of the Facebook group helped contact more shelters with Icy’s picture.
On Friday night, an animal shelter called Mark and said they had Icy!
WFX was able to bring Mark home to be reunited with Icy on Monday. Both are now safely back in their truck and on the road again.
We care for all our drivers and contractors and are glad we could help reunite Mark and Icy.
