I am a volunteer driver for Kindred Hearts Transport & also provide weekend & week long stays for dogs being transported. By far the most satisfying & rewarding pasttime I have ever engaged in. I am always watching for a trip coming my way. The transport coordinators map out the routes & keep track of who is driving which portion, where the meeting points are & deal with any situations that arise. We all volunteer our time & gas to get the animals to safety & love & spoil them like they are our own. This is a fierce group of people who do not think twice when asked to fill a spot. I am proud to be a KHTC driver & look forward to many more miles & meeting many more fur friends!

KHTC was the transport we used to get Buddy aka Papi from California to Kentucky
What a great team of volunteers! Unfortunately Buddy didn’t work out in Kentucky so we reversed the transport and sent him home to California for health reasons. KHTC was helpful and the volunteers from the transporters and transport coordinator this team is awesome!!!

What a wonderful organization! All I wanted was a chance to volunteer with a rescue, and I found that most rescues do not have a place for a person with limited and sporadic time availability. KHTC was happy to have me, and I am thrilled to be of use to such a great organization!

I have been with KHTC for about 4 years. I started transporting and was amazed at how it all works. Of course I became hooked on transporting but wanted to do even more. I chose Kindred as the place I wanted to be. Kindred is the most organized transport co. That Ihave driven for. As an “insider” I can say that our volunteers never cease to amaze me. Theyare always willing to go that extra mile /leg. I would and fo highly recommend KHTC as a safe and secure way to transport your loved ones!

I've been a volunteer with Kindred Hearts Transport Connection for a few years and never cease to be amazed at how organized, professional, on-time, and well-run this organization is. Every single person is an animal lover and it's made clear by the amount of time, energy, and love that goes into keeping this organization running smoothly.

I've also done some behind the scenes work with KHTC and it's no small feat to keep it running as smoothly as it does, but the volunteers are tireless and good people, to boot. I can't say enough good things about KHTC and the people who run it.

I have done pet rescue transport for almost five years. The first transport organization I became aware of is Kindred Hearts Transport Connection through a newspaper article. Because of KHTC, I have done well over 100 transports for this organization and others. Every single time there has been a transport in my area, KHTC has beautifully and meticulously organized the details for the drivers. So many lovely and loving pets have found their forever homes through KHTC. I am so glad to be a part of the wonderful work being done by this group.

I can’t thank KHTC enough or say enough good things about this amazing organization!
My journey with KHTC began in 2013 when I arranged with them to bring 2 dogs, mother and son, from Brighton TN to Utah. KHTC was VERY thorough
& kept me informed every step of the way. Miko & Mari arrived safely & are still with us. I was so impressed with this group that I used them once more (so far) to bring my mother a dog from Boaz AL! KHTC cares so much about the pets & the transporters that I decided to join KHTC & help with transports! Best feeling in the world is knowing that we played a little part in giving a pet a new leash on life!
KHTC, I’m so proud & grateful to be a part of your organization!!! #rollon

I just wanted to tell you how amazing Kindred Hearts Transport Connection, Inc is. In the fall of 2017 a little chocolate Beagle we named Nader was in a foster home after being rescued from a kill shelter and then being displaced after the devastating hurricanes in Florida. I was contacted by a friend who wanted to know if I could help place this little 4 month old puppy and fell in love with him at first sight. Living in Iowa I thought there was no way I could afford to get him to us. I was directed to Kindred Hearts where an amazing journey of getting volunteers to drive, making sure he had overnight accommodations, and making sure everyone and everything would be safe and as easy as possible for a three day trip. Because of Kindred Hearts I was not only able to rescue him I now have a very sweet, loving addition to our family. You can’t find a more loving group of people if you need them they just come in and help you and don’t ask for anything but you to love your new fur baby. The pictures I’ve added are of Nader with his volunteer transport people on his overnight stays and along the way. As you can see he had a blast, even getting to help with dishes in the morning. I love this group and would give them 10 stars if I could⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In March 2017 my neighbors, Vicki & Sterling advised me that they would be moving from Texas to So. Dakota to be closer to their daughter. Vicki was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Sterling needed his daughters help to care for her. When I was told this, I asked ... Hope Bud (their 12 yr Beagle) likes the cold weather. At that time, they informed me that Bud would not be going. Their plan was to drop Bud off at a Shelter and sadly we know what would happen to him being an older dog. I was heartbroken, disappointed and angry and I knew at that time, I was on a mission to save Bud !!! After many phone calls, e-mails, etc. and alot of “NO” we can’t help. I finally got a “Yes” we can help, I spoke with Brenda Collier with PetNet. Through her network, we were able to find a rescue in LasVegas that would take Bud. Now .... we had to get Bud from Texas to Las Vegas in a relatively short time. Step in Kindred Hearts Transport Connection !!!! They and their awesome group of volunteers managed to pull it all together. Peggy Cook added me to the Drivers PM so I could see and watch how this all would come about. I can’t even say how much I was impressed by a group of total strangers who all came together to save my friend, Bud the Beagle. Bud was loved and cared for on every leg that got him closer to LasVegas. Thanks to every volunteer with Kindred Heart Transport Connection, Bud is now in a loving home. A long way from being in a cold shelter along and scared. I was so impressed with KHTC that I became a volunteer myself . For over a year now, I have been a Monitor for their transports helping other dogs get to their forever home. Being part of this group has been one of the most rewarding things I have done. I love being part of an organization that has the passion and love for helping so many rescued dogs get to their forever homes. And when you see all the happing endings.... it just warms your heart and soul.

In 2015, my family decided to adopt a sweet boy who was in a Georgia shelter, and had been for a year. We started making arrangements for transport, and then my husband and I were in a serious car accident and I fractured my spine in 3 places. I was newly pregnant and unable to do much if any moving, let alone travel. Volunteers drove multiple legs of a long trip to get our boy to us in Kansas and we are so beyond grateful.

I'm so proud to be a volunteer driver for KHTC and be a small link in a very large cog. I'm also a recipient! Bentley was a very sick basset that needed to get out of a situation and FAST! Enter KHTC!! I KNOW how KHTC operates and the wonderful volunteers that treat every dog as he/she were their own. I know they could make this happen.... And they did with a medical emergency transport! With much anxiety (on my part) and much finesse (on theirs) my sick boy was on his way. What a sad sight he was. All the drivers took pics along the way and there wasn't one hitch. What a great day it was when Bentley aka Cooper arrived. I feel that same excitement every time I help with a leg or two to get a precious soul a new home! They are the best. But I know that, known it for years. Thank you KHTC and every single person under it's banner! Bentley is now a picture of health and very happy!

I’ve been both a Volunteer Driver as well as a Rescue Coordinator using KHTC’s services for several years. As always, I am tremendously impressed by the depth of professionalism, concern, adherence to Best Practices, and the just plain KINDNESS of everyone I’ve met through this organization. When asking to have a dog transported, I KNOW that it will be done safely, accurately, gently and LOVINGLY. Can’t say enough good things—file space limited!!!;-)) Special love from Holmes (formerly Homer)—forever grateful for KHTC Rescue/Emergency Foster/Transport and now HOME!

One of my 2 dogs passed away last September at the age of 16. After spending months looking for her replacement locally and online, we found a little girl in rescue in Tyler, Texas named Peppermint. I live in Napa, California and was surprised to learn that the Kindred Hearts Transport Connection would transport her to Napa by car using a number of volunteers driving an incredible number of legs (28). The entire transport was executed flawlessly and Peppermint (now named Samantha) arrived in Napa on schedule and in good spirits. This was an incredible organizational accomplishment and I cannot express my thanks enough to the Kindred Hearts Transport Connection organization, all of the volunteers who participated in this transport, and especially the transportation coordinator ANNE THOMAS. YOU FOLKS ROCK!!

We had to get this baby out of Miami due to BSL quick to Albuquerque, NM and Service Dogs Of New Mexico. I saw his photo o 1 Lucky Dog Rescue site and was familiar with the incredible work they do. I also knew we had to move fast. I knew this boy would fit in our program as a Service Dog for a veteran. Kindred Hearts stepped right up and put him on emergency transport. Thanks to amazing volunteers and some snow, sleet and ice, unplanned overnights, Bronx was delivered safe and sound to our home. Not even a week later he met his wonderful new life partner, Kristi White, an army veteran with 2 tours in Afghanistan and they are a perfect match. Every dog needs a job and to be a service dog for a veteran is one of the highest honors for a dog in our book. His name is now BOSS and he accompanies Kristi everywhere and has been a life changer for her. We cannot thank the volunteers and staff with Kindred Hearts Transport Connection enough for getting this wonderful boy here and in his new role as Service Dog to one of our Veterans. Thank you.
