We ask that you estimate a 2 week lead time due to the volume of requests we receive and needing to vet each request.  There are also specific requirements for certain states.  Please review them prior to requesting a transport.  Having all the information prior to requesting a transport will help streamline getting transport initiated.

There are certain New England states that have specific requirements to import dogs and cats. We strictly adhere to these laws. These laws have been put in place to ensure the safety of the animals coming into the state, families in the state and animals already in the state. We will not transport to these states unless the state’s guidelines are followed. Below is a brief recap of the specific state laws. There are links to the states that provide additional information.
