Two years ago, we fell in love with a puppy in east Texas who was about to be euthanized. We were referred to KHTC as a means to get him from Texas to northern California. They were very thorough and very professional. After the initial set-up, it took two weeks and countless volunteers to get our puppy to his furever home with us. We have made so many friends along the way and as a result, have become volunteer transporters ourselves. All my wife and I can say is this organization is the best and very committed to what they do. We will support them until we are no longer here on this earth.

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.

Thanks to KHTC I was able to save this beautiful girl from a shelter in Texas only days before she was set to be euthanized. I would have never been able to afford the cost of being Josie all the way from Texas to Alberta and KHTC made it possible. I (and Josie) will forever be grateful. (And don't worry, Josie has fattened up since her shelter photo) :)

Extremely well-organized, compassionate group of people. Being a volunteer transporter with this group has been amazing. They are "at your side" throughout each transport, ready to help in any way they can. The transport coordinators are in constant contact with the drivers, monitoring progress and making sure the drivers and furry passengers are safe. Love this group!

I do transport runs for many groups but none are as organized yet flexible as Kindred Hearts. It is always a pleasure to drive on one of their runs.
