*** PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF JANUARY 1,2016, there will be a $65.00 fee charged for each transport request made. Requests are determined by the location of where the animal is being picked up or dropped off. For example: If there are multiple animals from one sender under one health certificate, going to the same destination,we will require only 1 transport request and fee. However, if there are multiple animals and multiple pick ups from one sender and they are going to separate destinations(only if we are dropping them off at multiple destinations),then we will require you to fill out additional transport requests per pick up or destination and there will be a $25.00 fee for each additional request. We will do our best to have all the animals meet at one pick up or drop off site.
In the event that MPT can not accommodate you prior to transport, we will refund the fee in a timely manner.
Fee and donations can be made by check and mailed to us or by paypal at email@example.com
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Maverick Pet Transportation,Inc,is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that operates on donations. We strive to be the most professional transport in rescue today.
We provide transport from rescues and fosters to the pets adopter and rescue to rescue. We also will transport rescue supplies where needed. We will also assist in re-homing a pet that has been displaced by a family by unforeseen circumstances. We do not pick up from shelters directly.
We ask that you read over these guidelines and requirements. These are not just our protocols, but some are also Federal regulations and are required by law. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact us at 704-202-1203 or at www.facebook.com/maverickpettransportation or at Maverickpettransporrtation@gmail.com.
Puppies must be 8 to 10 weeks old at time of transport.
Sheltered pets must be out of a shelter and quarantined with a foster or in boarding, either private or at a veterinarian,at least 10 days prior to transport.
All pets will require a valid health certificate, prior to transport, issued by a licensed veterinarian,it must be issued no earlier than 10 days from the beginning of transport and must be valid the entire transport. We suggest that you get the health certificate a few days before transport. The rescues name and address will be needed in the consignor(shipper) area on the form. The adopters name and address will be needed in the Consignee(receiver/adopter) area of the form.
Copies of all health records must travel with the pet during transport. Copies of all health records will be faxed or emailed to our office at 704-279-7179 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than two days prior to transport.
We do not transport from breeders or puppy mills
Maverick Pet Transportation reserves the right to refuse any pet to be transported at time of pick up.
We ask that the pet not be fed or watered at least 4 hours prior to transport. Food and water will be provided for the pet during transport.
There may come a time during transport where a situation arises or if an animal(s) becomes ill, that we we may need to cancel transport for that animal(s). It will be the responsibility of the sending/receiving parties to take care of any costs associated with the cancellation of transport for that animal(s), including boarding. MPT will not be held responsible for any costs for medical illness incurred during transport. If payment is not received at the vet at the time of services, MPT will have no choice to leave the animal and continue on with our scheduled run.
I understand that failure to disclose any and all medical issues may result in your animal not being transported.
In the event that an animal becomes separated from transport, MPT will make every effort in its control to return the animal to transport. the necessary authorities will be notified by MPT in the event the animal can not be found.
All animals MUST travel with a form of ID tag. We have found what works best is a medical bracelet with our information on it. But, any type will work.
All ORIGINAL paperwork, including any contracts or agreements, must accompany the animal(s) during transport. We suggest that in the case of multiple animals from one litter, traveling together, that their paperwork be separated and a file for each animal will be needed.
In the event that the transport becomes delayed by weather, road conditions, an ill animal or any other event out of our control, MPT will continue the transport as soon as it is safe to do so. All parties involved in the transport will be notified of a change in our status.
In the event that an animal becomes ill during transport or seeks medical attention, MPT will take the animal to the nearest treatment facility. You will be notified by MPT as to the status of your animal asap. It is not MPT responsibility to cover costs involved with treating the animal. If any outstanding costs remain at time of treatment, the animal will be left at the treating facility until the costs are paid in full. If the animal is left at the treatment facility, the sending/receiving parties are responsible for any costs incurred, including boarding.
In the rare occasion that an animal is attacked by a fellow passenger, MPT will not be held monetarily liable for any costs incurred.
In the event that transport for your animal is cancelled in route, or a receiver is not obtainable, MPT will make every effort to get the animal to a foster or into boarding. It will be up to the sender to be responsible for any and all boarding costs incurred. if no resolution can be made, MPT will have no choice but to turn the animal over to animal control.
As part of our effort to keep the overpopulation of animals down and the health of your pet long lasting, we ask that you spay/neuter your pet prior to transport.
Surgery must be AT LEAST 7 DAYS OR MORE prior to transport. Stitches must be removed before transport for the comfort and safety of the animal.
Ideally, the spay/neuter procedure should be done at 6 months of age or later preferably within their first year for most breeds and up to 18 months with breeds such is German shepherd.
Unaltered animals under 6 months of age, can be transported, but only at the sole discretion of Maverick Pet Transportation, inc. Contact us for information regarding this situation.
