I love working with Kim and Furry Freight; I know she does an amazing job transporting dogs to and from different facilities. I’ve seen the amazing work that goes into caring for the dogs on a transport and it truly is remarkable. Kim is saving one dog at a time.

Furry Freight does amazing things for shelter dogs in overpopulated or high risk areas and transports them to areas where they have a higher likelihood of being adopted. Such a simple concept but, together with its shelter partners, Furry Freight makes a huge difference in the life of a shelter dog.

Kim and her team of volunteers do incredible work! They work tirelessly to save animals from euthanasia in over populated shelters, bringing them to find their furever homes in the PNW. They are truly amazing! ❤

Furry Freight Shelter Transport takes great care to protect the animals in transport including their initial selection, paperwork requirements, transport safety, and rescue partner delivery. Their mission stays on focus and they have clever fundraising ideas. It's a pleasure to be involved.

The founder and volunteers of Furry Freight Shelter Transport are true animal heroes, literally saving the lives of hundreds of dogs (and cats too!). With so many overcrowded shelters in problem areas farther south, Kim partnered with shelters in the Pacific Northwest who had space and loving homes waiting, that wanted to adopt them. Kim has created an impressive transport operation, from the fundraisers to the meticulous kennel sanitizing. I fully trust that all donations are spent wisely and efficiently, truly going towards saving the lives of animals.

I recently participated with Furry Freight for their annual fundraiser. This is a 3 day yard sale with donations from 60+ community organizations and individuals. All Furry Freight funds support transport of dogs and cats from high population shelters in Oklahoma and Texas to Oregon for adoption.
This is an organization built on dedicated leadership and a supportive network of volunteers. I look forward to continuing my association this animal rescue Foundation.

I contacted Kim wanting to learn more about how I might be able to help save dogs from overcrowded shelters and bring them to the Pacific Northwest where there are many ready and willing adopters.
I was incredibly impressed with Kim’s thorough understanding of the process, how to gauge the true areas of need, fundraising, execute and run crazy long transports all for the love of rescue animals. Realizing she was already doing the work I was interested in, I signed up to volunteer with her and help transport dogs. Very impressive organization,!

this last weekend I witnessed the amazing dedication of Furry Freight volunteers holding their annual garage sale to raise money to rescue animals from shelters where they would otherwise be euthanized. This garage sale is one of the biggest I’ve ever seen and labor that goes into the preparation, running and dismantling of it is a testimony to the devotion these volunteers have when it comes to saving animals lives.

It was simply destiny that brought me to volunteer at Furry Freight and I can’t say enough good things about it. Saving furry friends that would otherwise be doomed to some other fate is what it’s all about. All the volunteers I’ve met, working at the annual yard sale, cleaning crates after transporting and during transport are meticulous about the care of animals and adamant about the efforts and fundraising going directly to the care of the animals.

When Furry Freight Shelter Transport heard of the terrible animal welfare crisis happening in Oklahoma they came to help.
I'm sure it takes them so much planning to make these long trips from Oregon to Oklahoma and back while exceeding the guidelines for animal health and safety during transport.
As a volunteer in Oklahoma I cannot express my immense gratitude to Furry Freight for saving so many Oklahoma pets who are unwanted and dumped at local shelters, and bringing them safely to partner shelters in Oregon to find their forever homes!

I’ve volunteered for this organization for many years. Opportunities for volunteerism include community bingo, yard sales, can drives, crate maintenance, and other fun fundraising activities. All effort and proceeds go to supporting transport of adoptable shelter pets from areas where we are needed most.
