Note: The Cat House on the Kings does not endorse any specific transport. We urge you to do your own research before engaging a pet transporter, including asking for references to satisfied customers who you can contact independently.
Caution: Please be very careful if you engage an individual who is not well known to you. Do not pay in full in advance of the delivery of the animal. Be sure to obtain proper identification like a photocopy of a valid driver's license to enable the individual to be found if there is a problem. We are aware of situations in which the "transporter" picked up the animal and the fee, but the animal did not arrive at the destination.
