Hi, My wife & I do educational programs for children using exotic animals that are rescued or placed with us (www.partypetsofohio.com). We came across a family that had a alligator that was raised in their house like a dog. The family were moving and was unable to keep the alligator in their new house. We were very interested in adding this gator to our family and including him in our programs. The problem was they lived 8hrs away and the winters where we live would make the travel much longer. We also needed to be sure that Bubba (the gator) was warm for his travel and properly cared for along the stressful ride. We used uShip to locate jimmyjames2262, he took on the shipment and was great. They did find the shipment to be quite different then most of their normal shipments, but treated us great, along with Bubba. Through the bad weather, Jimmy our driver got our new family member here and safe. Now Bubba is under his heat light loving life and getting ready for a new adventure helping promote his species to our next generation. Uship & jimmyjames2262 made it possible for us to ship something we needed and we also got the TLC that our shipment needed. I will use uShip for all our rescues that require travel. Thanks Curtis Cloos, Owner www.Party Pets Of Ohio.com
