Last month, Road Scholar Transport announced the winners of its Gone to the Dogs photo contest. These top ten dogs have reserved featured spots on Road Scholar’s upcoming nationwide dog awareness truck.
Due to an overwhelming response (and too many cute dogs to choose from), Road Scholar has decided to give your pooch one more chance at stardom.
In order to keep this truck moving and spreading awareness for our four-legged friends, we need to keep the trailer full with freight. That’s why for this part of the contest, we are simply asking for a business referral of anyone who ships products in our core service area. The product can be LTL or truckload, van or reefer, even hazmat. Just send your referral to email@example.com (along with any questions) and we will add your dog’s picture to the trailer.

Just as Road Scholar cares about our dogs, so does the Scranton Police Department. In order to raise money for proper care of the canines in their unit, the force decided to hold their first 5K for K9s walk in 2010, in which they raised over $12,000 for food, medical treatment, and equipment.
The success led to another walk the following year, this time raising nearly $13,000 to benefit the dogs.
These dogs are a great asset to the department. Just recently, one of the unit’s canines, who is a little over 1 ½ years old, aided in tracking down a robber, first using its sense capabilities to uncover evidence that was throw in a garbage can several block from the robbery site, and then sniffed his way a few more blocks to the robber’s front door.
Road Scholar is in the midst of working with the Scranton Police Department to create a new awareness trailer for reducing crime with the department’s slogan, “Be Part of the Solution.”
Stay tuned for more information on when you can expect to see Road Scholar’s new trucks on the road and keep those referrals pouring in!
