If for any reason you are unable to drop your dog off for transport, please let your Adoption Coordinator know in advance, so we can arrange a volunteer to assist. You can also post on our Addicus’ Legacy Foster and Volunteers page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/225623824449371/) to find help yourself.
ITEMS TO INCLUDE WITH YOUR DOG/PUPPY FOR TRANSPORT:
All paperwork for the dog should be placed in a MANILA ENVELOPE, clearly labeled with your dog’s name and “Addicus’ Legacy Dog Rescue”.
Completed Medical Checklist form (dates of preventatives and microchip included)
All other medical paperwork
Transporters provide all food. If your dog needs a special diet, please label the bag clearly and provide enough food for three (3) days.
Attach tape around the dog’s collar and using a sharpie, write the dog’s name and the following number on it:
Morning of transport: limit food – many dogs get scared when they are loaded, and if we can reduce vomit, that would be great 🙂
You may send a blanket or small toy with your foster dog, but they have limited space for lots of luggage, so pups and dogs must travel light!!
