Crisis Averted!

I hope this story serves as cautionary tale to others in our field. I started a nonprofit in the summer of 2007. The whole thing was quite accidental. I joke that I had more confidence than common sense at that age. What I thought would be a hobby turned into a career and eleven years …

What is High Volume Long Distance Transport? (P.E.T.S. Underdog Express)

Why does the North NOT have a pet overpopulation problem? I am asked this question a lot. How is it possible that we are sending 40-50 dogs every 3-4 weeks to New York and they are getting adopted within days? How is it possible that there is a line of adopters waiting for our truck …

Everyone Needs a Pet
