After all 48 dogs were evaluated; the USDA gave permission to the rescuers to transfer the remaining 16 dogs who were not yet adopted. Three of those dogs were taken by rescue groups to the east coast and the other thirteen were loaded up in a rented RV and headed west with the Bad Rap team. This was by no means an easy mission. They also had to be very careful of their route and which towns they drove through, because many towns have breed specific legislation in place against pit bulls. After a long trek across country, with many stops lasting hours to insure all dogs got walked and relived themselves, the team finally made it to the San Francisco Bay Area.
