What You Need To Know
The best way to know our upcoming schedule is to keep track with us via facebook.
We post any requests for travel as well scheduled travel dates.
Here is what will be provided for your Furbaby by us.
I use the hard carriers for each transport. This ensures extra stability if we were ever in a crash as well as extra protection from any dog/dog aggression. I will put ample bedding into each so your Furbaby has a soft comfy ride. Each carrier is sanitized after transport and all bedding is washed in a bleach cycle.
I use a standard slip lead for every dog I transport. Just because your dog walks great for you does not mean he/she will for me, a complete stranger, walking him/her at a loud and often busy rest stop along the highway. The slip lead is the securest way to walk a dog who may try to run away.
Your Furbaby is my Furbaby while in my possession. He/She will be treated with the same love and respect I give my personal pets and my rescued pets. That means lots of kisses and petting and snuggles. Please inform me before hand if your pet does not welcome such affection.
Here is what is expected of you for your Furbaby's transport.
1. Health Certificate:
Your vet needs to provide you with a health certificate proving your furbaby is healthy enough to be carried across state lines. Your pet also needs to have proof they have a current rabies vaccine as well as a dog flu vaccine unless you wish to pay for private transport. This protects your pet, everyone's pets and our transport program. I will refuse transport for any pet deemed unwell for travel.
Your pet needs enough of their regular food to last them for the entire trip. Dry food is to be put into a sealed gallon ziplock bag with his/her name clearly written. If you do a wet food diet, please include a seal for cans if only half a can is used at each feeding. And please use only pop top cans. Again, pet's name must be on each can.
If for some reason your pet is on medication, directions need to be very clear. If the meds are to be kept cold, a freezer pack must be included and it must all be in a gallon ziplock bag along with the meds. Again his/her name must be on the bag.
4. Harness & Leash:
In addition to my slip lead, your pup needs to have a secure properly fitted harness and leash. If you choose to also send him/her with a collar & leash that is fine. I would suggest a martingale collar. However a harness is a must for any dog I transport.
5. Flea/Tick Free:
Nobody wants to get their furbaby with fleas and ticks on them. And I certainly don't want them in my truck. Florida is a terrible breeding ground for the nasty lil buggers! You MUST ensure your pet is flea & tick free. I will comb him/her before loading and will sadly refuse transport if there is an issue.
If for any reason I must refuse transport, the deposit paid upfront is not refundable. Please ensure that each requirement is met before the day of transport.
I charge a flat fee of $.45 per mile. If I can carry multiple riders in one trip, I will break down everyone's fee accordingly.
The more stops along the way there and back gets divided by each party & their destination. So it's less expensive for everyone when I add multiple destinations.
