Welcome to

Hopson Express Animal Rescue Transport Service

According to the ASPCA, three to four million animals are euthanized in the United States each year.

Due to several factors, the South has the highest rates.

H.E.A.R.T.S., LLC (Hopson Express Animal Rescue Transport Service) is committed to safely and lovingly transporting animals from rescue groups in the South to their new families in the Northeast.

H.E.A.R.T.S., LLC is a USDA licensed transport founded by husband and wife team, Jason and Amanda Hopson. Our goal has been to create a transport service that we would feel confident in putting our own fosters on to travel to their anxiously awaiting homes. We will be transporting our own fosters on each transport and we will provide the same love and care to each and every dog as our own will receive.


Health and safety are our number one priorities. Their crates will be cleaned as needed throughout the journey. They will be sanitized with a gentle disinfectant during transport. After each transport, the trailer and crates will be fully sanitized. We realize how fragile our younger passengers are and gloves will be worn when working with them.


Each of our passengers will travel in their own USDA approved travel crate. Depending on travel time, they will be fed a light meal/meals. They will have access to fresh water at all times. 


$155.00 per dog/puppy

$75.00 per cat/kitten



We accept checks/cash at pick-up/drop-off. We cannot accept any in person payment in the state of Connecticut. Please see the Payment Page for further details.

Safe Travels

We have two primary transport vehicles, a 2021 Chevrolet 3500 and a 2021 Ford F-350 pulling a custom built 38 foot enclosed trailer.

Our trailer is equipped with 3 generators, upgraded soft ride suspension to ensure a comfortable ride, lighting, four heating/air units, and a camera to monitor things from the truck cab. The animals are warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  You will find our trailer to be crisp, clean, and well organized inside.
