Transport Requirements


  • Adult dogs must be up to date on Parvo/Distemper, Bordatella and Rabies vaccinations. 

  • Puppies must have had at least 2 sets of Parvo/Distemper vaccinations and a Bordatella vaccination and must be at least 8 weeks old.


  • Each pet must have a health certificate issued by a veterinarian.


  • Each pet should have a collar with their name and the receiving party's contact information written on it.


  • Each pet should have two copies of their paperwork in two separate envelopes. One copy is for the receiving party and one copy is for the transport. Both envelopes should be labeled with the pet's name, the receiving party's name and contact information. 

  • The paperwork should include the medical record (vaccinations, surgeries, preventatives, etc.), the pet's health certificate and the pet's microchip information, if applicable. 


  • We request a $75 donation for each pet to be transported, or $125 for a litter that can travel in one crate. This helps with the costs of the transport. Thank you!
