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.

After seeing a picture of an old limping hound at a shelter in west va who was slated for a heart stick within days , I started the ball rolling for a comfortable retirement for him here in Florida. So many jumped into the ring with me to save this dog. All people who I'd never met before. His foster, Dana Parsons, The London Sanctuary who were a wealth of info and moral support and willing to pull him right then and there had I not already done so, and the KHTC, who planned and executed the most amazing transport, with Connie at the helm! They kept me informed of every detail of his trip , with pictures and details - all at no cost. Without them Ace would never have been able to come to me. He is an amazing redbone coonhound , now happy, healthy, and very much a part of our home. Thank you so much KHTC for all you do! You are amazing, and your volunteers are all angels!!!!

On June 7 and 8, 2014, Kindred Hearts Transport Connection assisted me by utilizing their volunteer network to transport one of my rescue dogs from Atlanta, Georgia to its new owner in New Jersey.

Throughout the entire process, each individual treated my transport and my dog as if we were royalty. At any given time, I knew where the dog was and who it was with and if I had any questions, I had a dedicated Transport Coordinator I could call, email, or text message.

I would NEVER consider nor trust another group or organization when it comes to transporting my rescue dogs.

Thank you to everyone at Kindred Hearts.

This group is so valued for all the reasons mentioned in the previous reviews, not the least of which is the love and devotion shown every day by everyone involved.

I've transported a few times over the last few months and find it very rewarding. The volunteers are wonderful, and it is great to see people opening their homes and hearts to the animals. I've recommended them on many networking sites since they transport through the United States to Canada.

I started off with Kindred Hearts a couple years ago as a transporter and overnight foster. It was the most rewarding experience in my life! The professionalism goes hand in hand with the personal touch and it is perfectly balanced. The staff cares greatly about the furbabies in their care and each one is looked after as if it's the volunteers own furkid.
Seven months ago I decided I wanted to do more and I trained and became a Transport Coordinator. This too is extremely rewarding! Every position is volunteer but the commitment and devotion that each person puts into their jobs is amazing. Many of us put many more hours into our "jobs" with Kindred Hearts than we ever did with our "real" jobs but we do it with a drive and determination to save furkids as many and as often as we can but most importantly doing it the right way!
I am extremely proud to be a part of this organization and all that it does! I look forward to the many years ahead and where this will go but I know I will be along for the ride :)

I have volunteered with Kindred Hearts doing several transports. I cannot tell you how much it warms my heart to see all the volunteers come together with the help of STELLAR transport coordinators in order to save lives like this!!!

Kindred Hearts also transported my rescue doggy Lizzy out to Colorado from a California KILL SHELTER where she didn't have much chance of being adopted due to kennel cough. This sweet doggy has changed our lives and enriched my small family in so many ways. I am eternally grateful to this organization

I volunteer with Kindred Hearts Transport Connection. What can I say about a group of volunteers who span the country to transport animals to safety? It shouldn't work...but it does. It works because the coordinators are incredibly dedicated and the drivers love what they do. I've transported seven times and had five dogs stay at my home. KHTC is very supportive, providing the rules and tips for a safe transport. Every driver I've met is helpful and professional. Every dog I've met has been so sweet! It's a wonderful and rewarding feeling to see an animal reach safety. This wonderful organization saves lives!

I have had the privilege of transporting for this wonderful organization for about 6 months. They have strict rules about the care of the critters being transported. These are for the safety and security of both the pet and the transporter. They have provided training information for novice transporters to help us get started and to refresh us as needed. They are detail oriented and give us transporters an hour by hour transport schedule so there is no doubt where we are to be and when. If a pet needs to travel and cannot be with their family, I highly recommend Kindred Hearts Transport Connection as the transport of choice.

KHTC has been great in assisting Forever Husky in not only regular transports but also Emergency Medical cases. The transporters did an excellent job in coordinating the entire route for the rescue animal and ensuring a smooth delivery of the animal. As the founder of Forever Husky, it's great to keep in close contact with the founder of KHTC to ensure any questions can be answered. Thank you Sherry for making such a great effort!
