How It Works


The Basics

  • Your pet must be at least 8 weeks old and weaned.

  • A health certificate issued by a vet within 10 days of travel

  • Door-to-door service unless otherwise negotiated.

  • We alternate staying in pet-friendly hotels, campsites, and rest areas depending on the needs of our passengers.

  • You get GPS tracking and daily photo updates.

Shared Ground Tranport

  • Your pet will share the ride with two or three other pets. 

  • All passengers will travel in a crate that we can provide and will generally remain separate from other pets.

  • We can offer a two hour window for pickup and delivery.

  • Great option for crate-trained pets and if your dates/times are flexible.

Private Ground Transport

  • Your pet(s) will be the only passengers on board.

  • Crates are preferred, but we can also offer seatbelt harnesses for the right pet.

  • Have a vehicle that needs to move? Sometimes we can drive your car and your pets together.

  • Coast-to-coast in five days.

  • Great for pets with special needs, anxiety, aggression, or anyone needing express delivery.
