Transport Policy

CareFree Canine, represented by its owners, operators, employees, and volunteers (herein referred to as Team Member(s)) are all committed to the safe and healthy transport of rescued animals to their new “forever” homes. CareFree Canine accepts the responsibility and privilege of providing safe transport for these animals, and the following policies are in place to help ensure our mission.

CareFree Canine makes many stops, with multiple groups or individuals dropping off and picking up animals. These folks are required to meet CareFree Canine's schedule and requirements. Among the many possible reasons for delay are weather, road conditions, and an issue with a dog. Groups or individuals can always call 484-626-1DOG (1364) for updates. CareFree Canine retains the right to terminate relationships with anyone that has a history of not being on time to meet the transport, whether it is at pickup or delivery.

CareFree Canine assumes responsibility for the safe transport of each dog, and will make every effort to provide a comfortable and peaceful environment as well. The rescue group or individuals maintain ownership of the animals during transport and are responsible for any vet bills that may be incurred during transport due to illness or injury not related to negligence. If a Team Member of CareFree Canine is unable to speak to a member of the rescue group in the event of a medical emergency, CareFree Canine reserves the right to make the appropriate medical decision at the expense of the rescue group. CareFree Canine is happy to create written agreements with each of our groups to identify clearly who is responsible and if minimal or any/all medical treatment would be requested in the unlikely event of a problem.

The sending rescue should strongly consider whether an animal with little or no socialization should be sent. It's not fair to the dog or the person receiving the animal, and CareFree Canine cannot be held responsible for a dog that cannot be handled while in our care.

CareFree Canine is not responsible for any dog that bites a Team Member and then runs away. Everything will be done to try and retrieve the animal. This is why it is necessary and important for the dog to have ID info on the collar.

Dogs that show aggression or cannot be handled safely by an employee of CareFree Canine will not be removed from its crate during transport. If a dog needs to be returned to the rescue for any reason, an additional transport fee will be required- at the expense of the rescue.

The person or persons who puts the dog(s) on CareFree Canine transport is ultimately responsible for the transport payment if the adopter or receiving rescue does not pay for it.

CareFree Canine does everything in its power to provide a healthy, clean and safe environment for transport. However, there is always a risk of contagious illness when dealing with rescued animals. CareFree Canine will not be held liable for illness resulting from transport.
