Transport options are governed by the location of the dog and the location of the adopter. For dogs in the south heading to adopters in new England, we recommend a professional transport service. Adopters on the west coast are encouraged to have the dog flown to a nearby airport. Dogs on the west coast heading east are also typically flown. We also utilize truckers whenever possible.
If we happen to have a ground transport set up for a dog coming into our program, we will move as many dogs as possible by that means. For those inclined to do so, you may pick up the dog at or near the foster home.
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. SOS 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.
