If your pet needs a rabies vaccine, the cost will be an additional $10.

All pricing and free services include a basic exam, sedation meds, spay/neuter, pain medication, and overnight hospital stay. Other services such as Booster shots, Kennel Cough vaccine, Hernia Repair, and Micro-Chipping can be added for $15 each. Nail trims are $5 per pet.

All vaccines should be administered no later than one week before transport. You can either get these vaccines through your vet or by purchasing them at Tractor Supply and administering them yourselves for a cost of about $11-$15 each.

To register for a transport, please call 888-422-7303, select option 2, leave your name/number, and a volunteer will return your call to schedule your pet.
