the transport process
The transport starts in Little Rock, Arkansas. Volunteers drive 6 hours to Kansas City, Missouri.
the kansas city connection
In Kansas City, the cats are handed off to a coalition of rescue groups that transport cats and dogs to rescues in 4 states. The routes are driven by volunteers that commit to drive 2-hour legs, sometimes in rescue-owned vans but mostly in personal vehicles.
The remaining 6 hour trip to our rescue partner - Happy Tails Rescue in Minneapolis, Minnesota - is driven in 3 or 4 legs with volunteers that live along the route.
Destination ReachedVolunteers from our rescue partner complete the process by picking up the transported cats. The cats are assessed and prepared for adoption.
