Travel fees - please contact us to discuss travel fees if you think it will be a longer drive

Five miles in LA can take five minutes or hours, depending on the time and your direction. That is why we charge for time instead of distance. Every transport service includes 1.5 hours of travel time starting when we leave our home office, and ending when we reach the final destination. Time spent at your home for the evaluation does not count - we put the clock on pause for the evaluation.

4720 PCH, Long Beach CA 90804.

Fees beyond 1.5 hours of travel:

Level 1 transport - $25 / 15 minutes

Level 2 transport - $35 / 15 minutes

Level 3 transport - $50 / 15 minutes

Aggression - $100 - $200

For those truly aggressive animals where safety is a real concern. If you as the owner cannot muzzle or get enough control of your pet for us to be safe, then you should expect this charge.

CPR - $200

Prior to transport, every patient, no matter their condition, will be required to have signed a CPR or DNR consent form. Even seemingly minor conditions can become unexpectedly critical, and we do not want to waste precious seconds getting approval for CPR. We believe it is better to be safe than sorry.
