Freedom Train Rescue Transport


Free volunteer based national rescue transport group

Rescue Angels On Wheels

A group comprised of rescuers who transport, transporters who rescue, or big hearted animal loving volunteers willing to help with both. The primary topic of this list is All Breed Rescue Transport. We are in the process of building a National Network of APPROVED Transporters to minimize the time, stress, and over-all aggravation currently associated with moving a rescue from one place to another.

Rescue Transport

This list is dedicated to the transportation of rescue animals.

Rolling Rescue

Rolling Rescue is a place for rescues needing transport and transport volunteers to find each other. Their mission is to recruit truckers, Rivers, commuters and anyone else who travels to the network that helps to move rescued animals to safety, in a rescue or from a rescue. to their new adoptive homes. Most of their transports involve dogs, but all are welcome. Their site mentions a Yahoo group which consists of coordinators who match up the rescue transport need with the driver and his destination.

This rescue is listed on Pet Finder. They do not specifically mention transport on their web page, but due to the fact that transport is part of their rescue's name, I suspect they may assist in transport.

Sky Ark

As our mission statement says, Sky Ark arranges free air transportation on either Sky Ark-owned aircraft or with other pilots and aircraft owners. Our free air transport service is for the transportation of injured or sick animals in need of health care, rescued animals from shelters, delivery/transport of service animals and for other compelling needs. Many of our volunteer members are pilots who use their own aircraft when we are unable to provide transportation in Sky Ark aircraft.
