We have purchased a 2007 International 3200 shuttle bus (shown above) in which greyhounds can be transported safely and comfortably in a climate controlled environment and under the constant supervision of volunteers. The bus has been professionally outfitted with crates that can haul up to 28 hounds. There is storage for equipment and supplies and seating for up to 4 volunteers.  The entry has a motorized ramp for those hounds that aren't familiar with steps or for those "special" needs hounds.

We have been in contact and consulted with several other greyhound transport organizations around the country.  We are drawing on their experience in this area so that we can be fully prepared for any situation. We have thoroughly researched and devised a comprehensive and rigorous set of transport protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of the hounds and the volunteers transporting them.

All runs are under the supervision of at least two experienced greyhound owners, trained in canine first aid and CPR and in our rigorous transportation guidelines. All trips follow a prescribed route with emergency contacts provided at various stages of the route.

The vehicle is mechanically maintained and inspected prior to each trip and the crates are cleaned and disinfected after each haul to ensure the health of each "passenger".

We are fully insured.
