Good Dogs travel every week from the South to the Northeast aboard PETS Transport, a USDA-certified professional transport carrier. Prior to travel, each dog receives a veterinary health certificate, certifying the dog is healthy with no transmissible diseases. During the adoption process, complete information about the transport process is provided and the transport cost is included in the adoption fee.

About PETS

PETS (Peterson Express Transport Service) is operated by Kyle and Pam Peterson in Cookeville TN. As animal lovers, they started helping with animal transports in 2000 and eventually their volunteer work developed into a full time job. They realized the need for safe, affordable transport for the many rescue animals going to new homes up North from rescue groups in the South.


PETS Transport has become the premier rescue transport organization in the Southeast servicing the New England area. PETS Transport has transported thousands of animals that would otherwise have been euthanized due to lack of space in southern animal shelters. PETS is recognized by the American Humane Association for this major accomplishment.

PETS Mission

PETS mission is to consistently provide a safe and affordable transport option for animals in need and promote the need to spay/neuter pets through education and making it one of their transport requirements. PETS provides multiple delivery locations in the Northeast but, due to time and cost constraints, they are not a door to door delivery service.
