We take pride in our transports and continue to work hard to make each transport a safe one. Cleanliness and proper maintenance is top priority. Our vehicles are cleaned after every transport. Our cleaning routine involves the following: Cleaning all linens used for the transport (towels, blankets, dog beds, toys, pillows) we clean and sanitize all crates inside and out. All leashes, collars, or other items used to restrain or tether the animal is cleaned and sanitized. We vacuum the entire vehicle, clean the windows, clean and sanitize all seats, carpets, and headliners. Our vehicle(s) are treated each month for fleas, lice, ticks, flies, bed bugs, misquotes, ants and spiders. (Not keeping a clean transport will transfer bacteria, illness, and skin issues).
We handle a medical transport such as open wounds or broken bones, car accident animals or pregnant animals with additional care as we provide isolation in transporting to assure a safe healthy transport. Our transporters wear clean medical rubber gloves when handling medical transports as well as puppies, kittens and sick animals.
We make sure not to transfer anything that can follow us into our homes and pets so we take immediate action to properly handle our clothing worn during transports to be immediately washed.
We do not stop for meals or make any stops during the transports that are not needed. We schedule accordingly to allow punctuality of departure and arrival in allowing gas fill ups or bathroom breaks for the transporter and animals as needed. We do not eat during transports. We do not allow animals to ride freely in the bed of a pickup. We do not allow smoking during transports.
Our transport items consist of the following: leashes, harnesses, collars, towels, extra blankets, crates, plastic tarps, rubber gloves, dog/cat bowls, bottled water, first aide kits, flashlights, cutting tools, dog & cat food and treats (as needed), sanitizing wipes and spray, plastic bags, pee pads, toys and more.
We double up drivers when needed on some transports. We log every transport with a trip log, receipts pictures and videos, we observe the animals behavior so we may share this with the receiving foster, adopter, rescue or another transporter.
We make safety our priority, we want to give the best transport possible so the animal and transporter can enjoy a comfortable FREEDOM RIDE!
************************TIPS FOR THE ANIMAL ON DAY OF TRAVEL*********************
1. Do not feed the animal the day of the transport, this will help limit car sickness and accidents during travel.
2. Make sure all animal paperwork and belongings are secured together in a bag and given to the transporter first.
3. If a dog please walk the dog before transporter arrives so dog can go to the bathroom and release some energy for a calm transport.
4. If animal is on required medication and has to be given in the morning please give the animal it's required medication, our transporters are trained to administer medication as needed or required.
5. Make sure animal is properly secure either by tethering or crating and leash the animal at all times.
6. Never leave the animal in the vehicle unattended at any time during transport.
If the transport is a medical transport our transporters are professional trained to handle and will provide the proper travel setting for the animal.
