Transport Pick-up Instructions
Thank you for adopting a rescue dog that was pulled from a kill shelter in Texas. Through hard work and awesome fosters, your dog is now ready for his/her forever home.
It is VERY, VERY important that you read and understand the following instructions for picking up your dog from transport.
Also, please visit the Resources tab on our Website for some information about introducing your dog into his/her new home.
Your dog will be arriving in New England on a Saturday. For pick-up in East Hartford, CT, the estimated time of arrival is between 9 and 10 am but that can change on occassion due to traffic issues and transport schedule. Additional pick-up locations may be available and should be discussed with your Adoption Coordinator.
You will receive an email from one of our transport coordinators the Thursday prior to arrival.
Pick up location is PetSmart 5 Main St, East Hartford, CT 06118.
If you have any questions or issues, please do not hesitate to contact your adoption coordinator.
You will need to bring a leash (not a retractable one; they are the worst invention EVER) for your new family member and we will provide you with a martingale collar. Why, you ask should I use this type of collar? Because attaching a leash to a regular collar is not a safe way of walking your new best friend. These dogs have been on a long ride, they have just left a loving foster home and now going to people they have never met; you can understand if they are a little scared and might get spooked by something. New things like noises, traffic or strange people may startle them. So please take care of this ASAP. We feel that this is so important that we will not release the dog to you without the proper collar or Loop leash!!!
THE MARTINGALE COLLAR SHOULD ONLY BE USED FOR WALKING AND NEVER LEFT ON YOUR DOG AS IT IS A CHOKING HAZARD!!!!
All our volunteers take pride in what they do and they would love to see their foster in their new home so please send pics or post on our Facebook page.
On behalf of everyone at Addicus' Legacy Dog Rescue: THANK YOU FOR ADOPTING!
