With our private family Pet Transports, we transport only one family of pets at a time. So your pets will never be combined with other peoples pets. This makes staying at motels much easier for all. Dogs really love this. It's fun for them. But most importantly, they are not confined to a crate for the entire journey. They get to stretch out at night. With other companies that do group transports, your Pet Transport can take up to 7 to10 days.
We drive approximately 14 to15 hours a day and sleep in pet friendly motels at night. Your dogs get one bed and we get the other. Cats are kept in their crates for the entire transport. Sorry, but we find it is safer and less stressful for them this way. But their crate is large enough to accommodate a full size litter box and also allow them walking around room. All of our crates are roomy with comfortable bedding.
We also offer group Pet Transports. The only difference is, your pets will travel in the van with other pets. We still transport in mini vans with only 4 to 6 pets per van, depending on their size. All pets will sleep in the van with their driver at police patrolled rest areas. And our group transports still only take 1 to 4 days maximum.
The pricing for group Pet Transports is located on the TLC Pet Transport Rates page.
"Families only" transports are figured by the round trip mile.
You will need to fill out a Quote Request form or call or email the office for a price quote. As I will need to figure up your total miles.
To set up your family or group Pet Transport, we like to have at least a 2 week notice. Your pet's transport pickup and delivery can be scheduled at any time of the day or early evening. Your transport will take 1 to 4 days, depending on the miles involved. Coast to coast transports usually take 3 to 4 days. Time estimate is most always accurate as long as weather conditions and traffic are being cooperative.
We use a Tom Tom Go BRAND GPS system in all of our vans and SUV's. Since TLC is a door to door Pet Transporting Service, this comes in very handy. We'll find you even if you live on a remote dirt road out in the middle of nowhere.
Upon pick up of your pets, we will program our GPS system with your delivery address. By doing this, we will then be able to give you the exact time of our arrival. Our drivers will stay in touch with you by phone and text throughout your pets entire journey to relieve your anxiety. And will call you or the person responsible at the other end of the transport if we are delayed due to traffic or weather. Aside from that, you can count on your delivery time and plan your day accordingly. A one hour delivery window is all that is needed.
Upon departure, please have all of your pets documentation. This includes health and immunization records and also a current Health Certificate. This health certificate is required by the USDA and it cannot be older than 30 days prior to your pet's scheduled transport. This paperwork travels with your pet.
Also include all instructions of medications and special diets that your pet might require. We administer all medication free of charge. If shots are required, we are all trained to administer them. I am also a licensed veterinarian technician. And all TLC Pet Transport drivers have been trained to do whatever is needed medically for any pet in their care.
Your Pet Transportation Service Contract and Emergency Care and Feeding forms will be emailed or faxed to you once you book your transport with a deposit or other arrangements have been made.
We ask that you provide your own food as we do not want to upset your pets' system. Also something with your scent helps your kids feel less abandoned.
We will provide crate, bedding, fresh spring water, collars, leashes, bowls, litter, litter boxes, chew toys, treats and love and attention. Totally everything that will be needed to guarantee your pet's comfort and happiness.
Office hours are 8:00AM TO 6:00PM ET. Monday thru Friday. To schedule or discuss your family or group transport please contact us by calling our office 1-859-428-1677. Or fill out our Quote Request Form or contact us here.
We take the utmost precautions to provide the safest care possible in transporting your animals. Our drivers/attendants are licensed and insured, and have taken defensive driving training courses. We have never had an accident but they can happen. We provide insurance of $100.00 per pet. Additional insurance to insure your animal can be purchased at your request. But I am proud to say that TLC has never lost a pet, gotten into an accident or had a pet get sick while in our care.
