Transporting is crucial for what we do. We often have short deadlines to get animals out of high kill shelters. Fosters also immediately need supplies when they receive a new or sick foster pet. Getting supplies to foster parents same day is just as crucial. Rescue is a fast paced organization and it is easy for us to miss the opportunity to save an animal because of lack of transport. Our transporters are our lifesavers!
Local Transport – When we pull an animal from a local shelter we often need help transporting the animal to foster care. We also need transport for animals to attend vet appointments, adoption events, and photo shoots. If you cannot transport animals, we also need help with transporting supplies to foster parents and picking up donations.
Instate Transport – We pull animals from all over central Texas. When it comes time for a pull, we often have a very short deadline. We need transporters that are comfortable picking up the animals from the shelter and meeting at a central location to deliver the animals to their new foster parents. Our most common “out of town” city we pull from is San Antonio.
Out of State Transport – Once in a while we perform an out of state adoption. We generally have 2-4 weeks notice before needing out of state transport. This transporter would also need to be comfortable doing a “home visit” when arriving with the dog or cat.
