Transport Information


Please note: It is illegal in in the states of Maine and New Hampshire for any dog or puppy to get off any transport within those states and go directly to the adopter.  

**All AHR dogs are quarantined in foster care prior going to their homes in Maine and New Hampshire.  New Hampshire Law RSA 437 requires that any dog who has been imported into New Hampshire be held at in an approved quarantine facility for 48 hours, and obtain a new New Hampshire Health Certificate.  This law went into effect Aug 4, 2012.   The state of Maine requires a 2 or 5 day quarantine depending on the age of the dog.  AHR follows all state rules and regulations.**

Foster Parents:  The arrival times given to you by the foster coordinator are approximate.  Please arrive at your pick up location 1/2 hr early.    Please be patient, it is a long trip and occasionally unavoidable delays do occur. If transport is delayed, we will be in touch with you, but will also post it here as soon as possible if it is a major delay.

Adoptive Homes in Maine and NH:  You will be picking your dogs up from a foster home after your dog/puppy has been quarantined for the appropriate amount of days.  (Maine: minimum 48 hours if over 6 months old, 5 days under six months old /// NH requires a 2 day hold although we do a 5 day hold which is prefered by our vet of reference).  Your adoption coordinator will put you in touch with your new family members foster home.

Foster dogs will be scheduled when foster homes are available and transport space permits (we have listed a few dogs below who are looking for foster homes – please consider helping one of these sweet dogs find his/her forever home).

We regularly use: Peterson Express Transport Service and we make all arrangements for transport. Please visit their site to see how your dog will be transported to New England.  CLICK HERE
