START Rescue Transports

There are numerous activities involved in a “transport” including:

  • Coordination between CA shelters and out-of-state rescue groups.
  • Vet care for all animals prior to departure, including meeting all state agriculture requirements. (i.e. Health certificates and heart worm tests)
  • Physical transportation of animals that begins at California shelters and travels to their destination via air or ground
  • Following up with rescue groups to ensure all animals are working through the adoption process.
