CitizenShipper: A Great Choice
Was in a tizzy about getting my newly adopted puppy to me from OH to MT. Didn't realize he was a "snub nose" breed and couldn't fly in cargo. Started intense and avid research. So glad I found CitizenShipper. I had control in my decision in reviewing the offers which came in, selecting my transporter based on my personal needs/criteria...

I had my puppy ship from Illinois to Georgia. The driver was very courteous he kept me informed with calls text and pictures of my puppy along the way. I highly recommend them.

I didnt realize you could basically pay people to ship things. I needed to get my 12 year old pup to Maryland from Oklahoma, but I was about to move to the complete other side, California. Flying her only gave me nightmares. The site is well constructed and you put in your details, and drivers bid on the shipment. You can then review the shippers profiles and pick the one that best fits you. My driver and I had a miscommunication at first, but he quickly fixed it and gave me some of my money back for the mistake. Overall, a great service.

Pet Transport

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does transporting a dog cost?


There are no "listing fees" involved. You don't pay a dime before negotiating the cost of transport with the driver you choose to hire.

How can I determine how much the transport will cost?


The cost varies, depending mostly on the mileage. When drivers send in their quotes, it'll be up to you to choose whatever sounds reasonable. Typical rates are between $.5 and $1.60 per mile, but this can skew higher on shorter trips. Some shipments are more expensive than others: puppies, for example, require more attention so they often cost extra to transport.

How stressful is transport on my puppy?


For most animals, the stress of road transportation is kept to a minimum. For animals with elevated anxiety issues, please consult your veterinarian. If you want special attention paid to your pet, that’s usually doable. Each driver offers a slightly different level of service — with a little extra effort, you can find people with animal-care degrees able to provide your pet with the greatest level of comfort available.
