Animal transport program

Rescue transport vans from Animal Humane Society

In addition to partnering with local rescues, Animal Humane Society works with organizations across the country to transport animals from areas where shelters and rescues are overpopulated and over capacity with the number of animals needing new homes. 

Support our lifesaving work

The animal transport program at AHS is only possible because of support from incredible animal lovers like you. 

With your donation, we can transport more animals, provide the lifesaving care they need, and give them the second chance they deserve. View some of the animals that have been recently adopted thanks to our incredible community.

Transport programs help create space so these shelters can focus their resources on the remaining animals in their care.

In a typical year, more than 2,500 animals from local and national rescue transport partners are brought to AHS in search of a new home.

Although some animals are brought to AHS by other organizations, the majority of animals transported to us arrive in AHS vehicles. 

Our transport vehicles travel 130,000 miles per year to and through nine different states. Two vehicles used for transport have been generously funded by AHS supporters Richard and Susan Goldman.
