Transport Services


There are three transporters to get dogs to the Northeast from the South on the Alabama Gulf Shore in Fairhope. The adoption fee posted on each page of our bio and it includes the transport fee. Please feel free to peruse these transporter’s respective websites to learn more about that facet of the process as well. A brief bio of the transporters below.


PETS is owned and operated by Kyle and Pam Peterson. Being animal lovers, they started helping with volunteer animal transports in and around Tennessee. As they became more involved, their volunteer work developed into a full time job. They realized a need for safe, affordable transport for the many rescue dogs being adopted to new homes up north from the kill shelters in the Southeast.  Kyle Peterson and wife Pam started P.E.T.S. LLC in order to provide a low cost transport option for animal rescue groups to get their dogs to new homes. As one of the founders, Kyle started out “”doing everything thing involved with the operations side of transporting dogs. Including answering the phone, picking up dogs, cleaning the crates and trailers, maintenanceing the trucks, walking dogs, and delivering the dogs to New England. At this stage Kyle spends most of his time managing the outstanding crew of men and women who make P.E.T.S. LLC so successful, as well as driving the transport to New England, and still answers the phone. “” Kyle is the proud father of Savannah and the pack leader for 12-15 dogs at home. In his “spare time” Kyle is an avid reader, likes to fish, loves to cook, and spend time at home.

All Paws Transport Services

All Paws Transport Service is a family owned and operated business that prides itself on providing quality transportation for your rescued pets, getting them safely to their new families in the northeast as safely and comfortably as possible. We have over 12 years combined rescue and transport experience, and have learned through trial and error what works and how to get things done as safely and expediently as possible. 

Our primary transport vehicle is a 2011 Dodge Ram 4500, and the dogs ride in a modified 40 foot cargo trailer that includes heating and air, plenty of ventilation and exhaust fans to make the ride as comfortable as possible for them. Each dog rides in their own USDA approved travel crate.
Every single crate is checked and cleaned when necessary at each stop. Fresh water is available to your pet at all times, and they are lightly fed once per day for the duration of the transport. We also play some light music for the dogs to help combat road sounds and nerves. In the near future, we plan to install cameras so we will be able to see inside the trailer while on the road.

We are first and foremost a family operation, and the few outside employees we have are like family to us. Our current routes begin in the southeast and end in the northeast in Maine. If you do not see a drop-off or pick-up location that is suitable for your needs, by all means feel free to contact us. We’ll do everything in our power to accommodate, as long as you aren’t TOO far off our path!

Finally, a healthy, sanitary environment is paramount. Gloves and disinfectant are used when cleaning up after the dogs, and are used AT ALL TIMES when handling puppies under 5-6 months of age. Cross-contamination is always a risk when you have a large number off animals in a confined space, so we do everything in our power to minimize the chance of any undetected issue being passed from one dog to another.
