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!

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.

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) :)

I volunteer as a person that coordinates the pickup and dropoff locations and times. Everyone I work with is very kind-hearted and has a deep affection for the animals we're helping. I am proud to be a part of this team.

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 am a volunteer driver for K HTC. On the trips I've driven I have found them to be well-organized and a lot of fun. I've met new people and have been inspired by the ability of strangers to work together for a common cause. K HTC is a great organization and I am proud to be a part of it.

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.

I am a stay-at-home wife, recently retired and was looking for something to fill my time. I saw on FB the opportunity to transport rescued animals, primarily dogs and cats, all over the country to their "fur-ever" homes. I am an animal lover and thought this could be the perfect match. Boy, was it! I've been transporting since Nov. 11, 2015. It's been the most rewarding opportunity in my life. The people who organize the runs are organized, helpful and professional. Very down-to-Earth and friendly! For a non-profit organization, this is truly one of the best!!!

I volunteer with this group and do everything from being a travel coordinator to a volunteer driver. This is the most professional loving group that I have ever been associated with. It's all about the animals. The drivers are the most dedicated people I have ever seen. They go up and Beyond every time

I have had the pleasure of doing several doc transports in Texas and Oklahoma that were coordinated by KHTC. Every transport was done professionally and accurately. They are my first transport choice to work with.

I have done several transports for this group over the years. Would love to do more, but being in a "corner" of the country means there aren't a lot of transports through this area, unfortunately. Love KHTC because they are well organized, give very specific instructions and give continual updates before, during and after each transport. I also love that they do home checks and don't just send a pet off blindly to whoever/wherever. They not only help a lot of pets get to good homes/rescues, but also show a lot of caring and respect for their volunteers.

This organization made it possible for my sweet foster Brian had a terrible start to life and we found him the perfect home 750 miles away. Everyone from the intake person Lori Koss, to the transport coordinator Bridget Plinkard and all of the 11 people who did the transporting. I am so grateful for the way my boy was handled start to finish. Amazing group.

I have done overnight fostering for their transport dogs twice a month for over 2 years. The Transport Coordinators are excellent, there is great team communication among the drivers, and the safety and comfort of the dogs (and occasional cat or other animal) is always the top priority.
