We shipped Keilani, an adult Malamute, from VA to NY. She was picked up on time, and given all the love and attention we ourselves would have shown had we made the drive. I was nervous at first, because we'd never shipped an animal via ground transport before, but Kat, Bill and Dave quickly calmed my fears. They were in constant contact, and I was able to track their location throughout the entire trip. Shipping her cost me less than gas alone would have been had I driven it... and I would have had to stay overnight in a hotel, eat, pay tolls, take timeoff from work, etc.... The cost to ship her as a 100lb adult was less than half the cost of flying a puppy weighing 20 lbs. Keilani arrived on time happy and tail wagging. She had been walked, fed, and loved throughout the trip, not cooped up for hours and hours in a crate without attention. She was crated during transport for her safety, but there were frequent rest/walk/food/water stops throughout the journey. It was a pleasure to deal w/ Kat, Bill and Dave, and I would definitely use them again and recommend their services to anyone. They really care about the animals they transport, and it is obviously a labor of love rather than a paycheck. Awesome job. -N
