Ok. Im leaving San Antonio early tomorrow morning for Conroe to pu a Pappillon pup then Fairfield for another pup. One goes to s NJ the other is in WV then I could deliver yours. If this is good for you I have placed a bid but will only be good for tonight. Thank you, JulieReport a Violation
Response: Since you are already heading out this way we would do no more than $120, it is cheaper for us to just fly him out this way because flight is $204. 7/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok good luck with the 204. Have you flow a dog lately..? My rate is lower by the time you get an airline approval crate health certification from vet pay the airline the taxes & fuel up charge. The last time I flew one of my pups it died from dehydration. Thats why I do what I do now. No dog is going to die on my watch. Thank you for YOUR services. Julie7/7/2014Report a Violation

Hi Kelsey, First, I want to say Thank you for all the sacrifices you and your family had to make to help protect this country. As the mother of both a Navy and a Marine, I understand all too fully the sacrifices all the family makes. 2nd - In my pet transport business, I have had the misfortune to pick up 2 animals from the airport. Yes, I did say misfortune. The reason? The first animal had no food or water and was literally scared out of her poor mind. It took a lot of loving and gentle talk to help her come out of her shell. The 2nd animal that I had to pick up at the airport was delayed a day in arriving. Why? Because, the first day, while they were loading her onto the aircraft, they dropped her cage which caused it to burst and injured Windy. Do your research. The US Humane Society recommends not flying your dog unless absolutely necessary. The animals that travel with me, get one on one time with me. They are walked every 4 hours. Report a Violation
Response: Thank you. Yes, we are looking into it but I guess we just didn't realize how expensive it is going to be to get him here. I appreciate your explanation and I'm sorry to hear about those experiences. 7/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: Kelsey, 2 questions: 1) Would a pickup of around 8/1 work for you?7/8/2014Report a Violation
Response: However, we would need him to be picked up in Austin if it is beginning of August, if that is okay.7/8/2014Report a Violation
Response: Picking up in Austin is fine. 2nd question, would you be able to do about 360.00? If so, I will go ahead and enter my bid now.7/8/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'm sorry, no we cannot. Have a great day and safe travels. 7/8/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok, thank you for your honesty. If you change your mind, please feel free to send me another bid request. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.7/8/2014Report a Violation

Thank you for your request. I do give a military discount, however, at this time I will be unable to help. I am booked with other projects for a little over a month. Thank you for your service and good luck.Report a Violation
Question:

I am not going to try and scare you into not using my services over airline, although it would not be my choice of transportation it is for thousands of other animals transported daily. If you are going to use the airline you need to check their temperature restrictions; most will not fly if the temperature is over 85°. As with any mode of transportation things do happen. Please click my username to view my feedback. I am the mother of two Marines, one lost in 2011, one currently serving in the reserves. I have another trip coming out of Texas toward the end of the month. Can your dog travel later? What is your budget for this transport? As a professional transporter you will be required to have a health certificate as required to cross State lines, which will also be needed for the airlines. I will provide a transport carrier, for the airline you will need to supply a crate one size larger airline approved crate for travel. I will be glad to answer any questions you may haveReport a Violation
Response: We really can't afford anything over $200. Thank you for your sacrifices as well, it is people behind the lines that help motivate and I am sorry for your loss. He can travel at anytime really. 7/8/2014Report a Violation
Question:
7/9/2014
Thank you for the bid request. Unfortunately I will be heading West this week not East. Best of luck with your shipment. Please do be wary of flying your dog. The dog would fly in the hold and the temperatures are wildly varying both on the ground waiting and in the air at high altitude. Armydad.Report a Violation
