3:15 a.m. SaturdayIMPORTANT INFORMATION-PLEASE READ (Please call 855-543-2782 and press option #3 during the day/night of transport for exact times. Please check this often as we will be continually updating the times to keep you informed of any time changes. We continue to update the automated phone system with any changes of over a few minutes from the previously listed times. Please allow plenty of time to arrive early to the stop and make yourself familiar with the drop off location prior to our arrival. We are only at each stop for approximately 5-10 minutes, so please do not be late as this will put the whole transport behind and we, unfortunately, will not have time to wait. We meet on average 50 families each transport and we do everything we can to streamline the process and make it simple for everyone. Calling 855-543-2782 and pressing option #3 is going to be your key for making sure you have the most current information available. We are often early, so it is VERY IMPORTANT to check these times. We generally run within an 1.5 hours +/- of the times that are published on this website.

If you are late, you will have to meet us at one of our other designated drops. Which can be difficult to do as we are only at those drops for a few minutes as well. If you are unable to pick your dog up, there will be an additional reverse transport fee for us to bring the dog back to you on a later date.

We realize that keeping a check on the system for our early morning pickups can be an inconvenience, but it is necessary in order to make the process go smoothly.

We HIGHLY recommend getting there very early and grabbing some lunch or a coffee while waiting on us to ensure that you are there and ready for us.)

The “pick-up” person listed on the reservation form will receive a text to include this information the week prior to transport. Please make sure that the cell phone number listed on the reservation form is a number that received text.

You will need to bring a quality slip style leash (with a slide down to secure the leash in place) with you to pick up your dog. These can be purchased on Amazon for a reasonable price via the link below. If you do not bring a slip leash with you to transport, we will have them available to purchase for $20. It will be a bit cheaper to purchase them ahead of time. We cannot accept regular collars/leashed, harnesses, or retractable leashes. 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00074W3RM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Each dog will come with an ID band on. Please leave this on them until they are safely home. 

Please keep a tight grip on your dogs leash and leave their leash on them for the entire trip home. Good quality slip leashes like the one listed above are VERY good leashes to keep your dog secure. 

If you are adopting a puppy under 6 months old, please do not put them on the ground. They will need to be carried to your car (they will still need a slip leash). Puppies are still susceptible to sickness that can be picked up on common ground. They have been able to potty on paper during the trip. 

If you are adopting an adult dog and let them potty when you pick them up, please make sure to clean up after them. We really appreciate the businesses that we stop at allowing us to stop there, so we want to make sure to be respectful and not leave a mess behind.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION-PLEASE READ (Please call 855-543-2782 and press option #3 during the day/night of transport for exact times. Please check this often as we will be continually updating the times to keep you informed of any time changes. We continue to update the automated phone system with any changes of over a few minutes from the previously listed times. Please allow plenty of time to arrive early to the stop and make yourself familiar with the drop off location prior to our arrival. We are only at each stop for approximately 5-10 minutes, so please do not be late as this will put the whole transport behind and we, unfortunately, will not have time to wait. We meet on average 50 families each transport and we do everything we can to streamline the process and make it simple for everyone. Calling 855-543-2782 and pressing option #3 is going to be your key for making sure you have the most current information available. We are often early, so it is VERY IMPORTANT to check these times. We generally run within an 1.5 hours +/- of the times that are published on this website.

If you are late, you will have to meet us at one of our other designated drops. Which can be difficult to do as we are only at those drops for a few minutes as well. If you are unable to pick your dog up, there will be an additional reverse transport fee for us to bring the dog back to you on a later date.

We realize that keeping a check on the system for our early morning pickups can be an inconvenience, but it is necessary in order to make the process go smoothly.

We HIGHLY recommend getting there very early and grabbing some lunch or a coffee while waiting on us to ensure that you are there and ready for us.)

The “pick-up” person listed on the reservation form will receive a text to include this information the week prior to transport. Please make sure that the cell phone number listed on the reservation form is a number that received text.

You will need to bring a quality slip style leash (with a slide down to secure the leash in place) with you to pick up your dog. These can be purchased on Amazon for a reasonable price via the link below. If you do not bring a slip leash with you to transport, we will have them available to purchase for $20. It will be a bit cheaper to purchase them ahead of time. We cannot accept regular collars/leashed, harnesses, or retractable leashes.

Each dog will come with an ID band on. Please leave this on them until they are safely home. 

Please keep a tight grip on your dogs leash and leave their leash on them for the entire trip home. Good quality slip leashes like the one listed above are VERY good leashes to keep your dog secure. 

If you are adopting a puppy under 6 months old, please do not put them on the ground. They will need to be carried to your car (they will still need a slip leash). Puppies are still susceptible to sickness that can be picked up on common ground. They have been able to potty on paper during the trip. 

If you are adopting an adult dog and let them potty when you pick them up, please make sure to clean up after them. We really appreciate the businesses that we stop at allowing us to stop there, so we want to make sure to be respectful and not leave a mess behind.
