Introducing R.H.I.N.O. S.N.A.F.U.….An acronym to help remember PETS mandatory transport requirements.  Failure to follow the requirements results in massive (rhino) chaos (snafu) and refusal of service.

For the health and safety of all animals on board and to support our mission of reducing animal over-population,

please follow PETS transport requirements.

TRANSPORT PAPERWORK: All paperwork is reviewed and scanned for P.E.T.S. LLC records on Thursday evenings when the transport stops in Cookeville TN to walk and feed the dogs.  PLEASE DO NOT staple, tape, or seal the envelope or paperwork. As a requirements checklist, print and use the ENVELOPE COVER SHEET. You may also ask for pre-printed transport envelopes from our drivers at any of the meeting locations.

* Keep in mind that this is a very long transport for the animals and they have already gone through so much change in their lives. The guidelines above are all preventative measures to help ensure the animal is healthy before, during and after transport. However, since most of the health backgrounds of the animals are unknown, stress from the transport, change in climate, change in food, etc. may still bring out a cold or kennel cough once they arrive up north. Just like people, some animals are more sensitive to change and more susceptible to come down with something. Please be patient with your new family member during the first few days.

**P.E.T.S. LLC does NOT transport for breeders or puppy stores.

*** P.E.T.S. LLC reserves the right to refuse to transport any animal for any reason at any time. 

**** Any rescue groups found to be in violation of the above transport requirements will be refused service.
