Transport

Transporting

 

Transport volunteers are a huge help to our program and there are various transport opportunities:

  1. Transporting dogs from shelters in Middle Tn, Alabama, and Kentucky, to our vet clinic in Franklin upon intake.
  2. Transporting dogs from their foster homes to their meeting location (most NE drop offs are in Nashville) for New England transport.  Sometimes, if there is just one dog leaving on transport we will pick up at the foster home, but other times we meet at Animalia or another convenient spot in Franklin.  Often we need volunteers just to get the fosters from their home to this meeting spot and someone else will make the trip to Nashville.
  3. Transporting supplies to fosters.  Oftentimes we need volunteers to deliver food, medication, or other supplies to fosters.  Generally pick up of these supplies is from Animalia. This is often a great opportunity for people who want to volunteer and work in Franklin, but live in an outlying area where the fosters live.
  4. Transporting dogs to and from the vet for clinic visits.  Though it is most helpful when fosters can do their own vet visits, sometimes it just isn’t feasible.  Again, this is a good opportunity for those who want to volunteer and work in Franklin, but live outside the area where other fosters may reside, making it an easy pick up and drop off.
