Here are some For-Hire transport options:
Always ask if there is a rescue rate
lower than the normal fee and always ask for prior customer's references, their
phone numbers, etc. Sadly, there are some bad people out there and
recent customer's recommendations are critical.

Got Orphans Transport For Rescue Groups & Adopters - Recommended:
Got Orphans Transport transports dogs for rescue groups, for adopters that adopt from a rescue group or adopt from a shelter/humane society and need transport for that dog. We begin in Arkansas then come through Tennessee then on to Virginia, etc. 81 North and 80 East. We go to the New England area, New York and some surrounding states.
We can do pick ups and drop offs along the way and also coming back. Got Orphans Transport is licensed with the Dept of Agriculture.
We have our cell phone with us during transport if anyone needs to call us.
We have a new express van with windows, heat and air conditioner, the dogs can see and hear us at all times and we can check on any dog at anytime without having to stop the van.
If there is an emergency, the sender of the dog will be contacted and the dog will be taken to a veterinarian clinic or emergency clinic depending on time and day in route. Each dog is taken out for walks, fed and given water all during transport. Transport departs on Thursday and arrives in New England on Saturday. Call or email to make reservations. Do not hesitate to call or email to ask any questions or transport cost and requirements for dogs to travel on transport. We look forward to hearing from you.
We too are in rescue and do understand the importance of safety and care of a rescued or adopted dog during transport. We have references upon request. We are also willing to go to other areas of the United States if we can have a full van to be able to do the transport.

Companion Air is the first airline created specifically for pets and their
owners. We fly very safe and reliable jet-prop aircraft so that we can
operate out of small local airports, fly high and fast, and provide a roomy,
executive class interior. The use of more, smaller aircraft allow us to
provide services much more broadly and at a more reasonable cost. During
peak times we may supplement our fleet but the Companion Air fleet is
comprised of new aircraft purchased and configured for Companion Air, our
Pets and owners.

Sky Ark offers free animal air transport for service, companion and rescued animals. Sky Ark has helped quite a number of rescued animals since
its first flight back in May 2003. Mission pilots who need flight time
donate mission fees and aviation fuel, which reduces some of the costs.
Flights cost an average of one dollar a mile. Since Sky Ark flies
twin-engine planes, they are able to transport quite a few animals at the
same time, unlike on commercial flights where only two animals can go on

excellent resources for transport
