Hi all, I'm Ricki.
I'm a great driver and could really help the team with transport, but my mom will not let me out on the highway. So I've been designated as the Transport Operations. Sometimes this logistics stuff can drive you crazy, so Save Our Setters gave me a volunteer assistant that helps out a lot.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with transport. See the map below that displays where we currently have volunteers that have agreed to help us with transports, We always need people who are willing to pick-up and drive a new rescue from their current location to one of our foster homes, or drive a wonderful Setter from its foster home to it's FOREVER home. For long stretches we usually have multiple volunteers helping.
Even if you see that we have someone available in your area, remember they may not always be available when we need them, so we always like to keep multiple volunteers available. If you see an area where we have no volunteers for transport available, I would really love to have your help.
If you are willing to help us out with transport, please fill out and submit our Volunteer application.
And if you see me driving down the road in your neighborhood, make sure to wave and say hello!
NEW POLICY EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2023 per the Board of Directors:
The transport fee will be waived for those adopting from Save Our Setters that are signed up as transport volunteers.
For those adopters that volunteer for Save Our Setters in some other capacity, the transport fee is $35. Save Our Setters will handle the arrangements.
Those adopting from Save Our Setters that have not signed up for transport, have never transported for Save Our Setters, have never fostered for Save Our Setters, and/or have never volunteered in any capacity, we will arrange transport at the rate of 50 cents per mile, measured by the internet’s recommended driving route. Anticipate doing some driving, as we do not offer door-to-door service.
Alternatively, you are always welcome to pick up the dog directly from the foster home or otherwise making your own transport arrangements.
