Bailey, Kirby & Duchess were 3 young dogs rescued from a hoarding case of 100 dogs. Born & then chained inside a barn on the isolated farm for 2 years, they stood on 3 feet of fecal matter, sometimes attacked by rats, never running free in fresh air and sunshine. They were finally rescued, groomed, neutered and vaccinated. Now all they needed were foster homes. Which we found in NY. It was Monday, & we had to get them up their by Saturday or their foster homes would be lost. I turned to U-Ship for help and put up an URGENT request for pet transportation in just 4 days. We were delighted by the quick reply and fair prices of several pet transports, but Allen's stood out above the rest. Allen of Pennxpress Tranport had several pages of detailed, exceptionally positive feedback. What especially impressed me in that feedback was the loving care he showed the pets, ongoing communication with pet owner during the trip, flexibility and ability to respond to many different pets, both cats and dogs, of varying sizes and temperments. I asked Allen 5 or 6 questions about transporting our 3 dogs, and he responded in a detailed and timely manner. I explained that these 3 dogs were "special needs", cautious with people, and might need special attention during the trip. Allen was fine with that. The price was good too, so we selected Allen and PennXpress for the trip. Well, it went far far better than expected. Allen arrived right on time to pick up the dogs, and they took an instant liking to him! They had never been leash-walked or housebroken before the trip, but Allen seemed to train them as he went along. He contacted us by cellphone frequently throughout the trip, reassuring us that all was well. They even spent time at his home, and had a ball, playing & running freely for the first time in their lives. Allen delivered our dogs safely and right on time too. I HIGHLY recommend PennXpress & Uship to anyone who needs to move their pets safely, on time & with loving care.
