Welcome

Imagine Home  is best known for our custom cat transport services.
We specialize in relay-style transports, with cats in carriers passed from one trusted volunteer driver to the next, from start to destination. Every Imagine Home transport is designed to meet that particular cat’s needs, while they travel safely and comfortably to their destination.

Below, you will find a selection of our current transport event sign-up sheets. Take a look, you may see one coming through your area!

BIG BOY BEN TRANSPORT
Southport , FL to Rapidan, VA

Date: September 23, 2017

Scroll down to see sign-up section

Big Boy Ben is a big beautiful tabby who was born deaf. His human was able to be with him all the time, so he was free to roam in safety. But, Ben's world suddenly changed.

Ben's human was diagnosed with cancer. She knew that she would no longer able to be with him all the time, to make sure he was safe. The best way she knew to keep him safe, was to put him in a wire crate. Ben's human is quite unsure of her own future, but she wants to be sure Ben is safe, and that he has a good future. This is where Hilary comes in.

We've worked with Hilary before, and she has a knack with special needs kitties. She also has close ties with Rikki's Refuge. Because of this, she has been able to secure Ben a place at that sanctuary. This is where we come in.

Rikki's is 900 miles away from Ben. It's time for the Imagine Home to step up and do our part. So what say you, Nation? Can we be a part of this success story?

If you haven't already done so, and are helping to transport a cat, you MUST also be signed up on our database: www.imaginehome.org/wp/volunteer/driver-application-form/ (We wish to assure you that your private information is held in the strictest of confidence.) If we do not have your complete contact information no later than 72 hours before an event, we will be forced to use a Backup Transporter.

While the route itself is generally fixed, we leave it to our drivers to choose the best meeting place. This site will help you figure out what is in the area: www.exitexplorer.com/home.php. We do ask that you let your Transport Coordinator know your set location.

Your official run sheet will be sent out as soon as possible to all drivers on a transport; however, we know some drivers will wish to start planning meeting locations before it comes out.

When you sign up as a primary transporter, we encourage you to contact the driver of the leg on either side of you at your convenience to begin making plans. If you do not know that person, contact your transport coordinator who will be happy to put you in touch with each other.

Backup Transporters: until the day of the event, we will not know if you are needed. Additionally, emergencies CAN and MAY happen on the day of the event. We still expect you to be available if needed on Event Day.

Please remember when setting up meeting places and exchanging personal info that this event is posted on a public page. We ask, for your safety, that you do so in a private venue. Please be sure to exchange a vehicle description, and also pass this information to your Transport Coordinator.

*****PLEASE BE SURE TO READ OUR POLICY AND PROCEDURES FOR SAFE TRANSPORT*****

By signing up, you are agreeing that you have read and agree to the policies outlined on our Required Info for Transporters page: www.imaginehome.org/wp/volunteer/required-info-for-drivers/. You will want to be sure to have a "Transport Kit", containing bottled (or filtered) water, paper towels, pet safe wet wipes, and/or rags and towels for emergency cleanup needs. A more detail list of suggested supplies is also available on the Required Info for Transporters page.

What is Imagine Home?

Imagine Home assists with feline rescue, adoption, and transport by gathering and maintaining databases of contacts and information helpful to rescue.

Imagine Home came about by accident, or providence, ultimately through the tragedy of Jack the Cat. Click here for Jack’s story. We were brought together to form an organization to help rescued cats.

Our Immediate Vision: Assist adopters, fosters, transporters, and rescues in any way we can, through our volunteers and contacts. We encourage you to share your recommendations of individuals or groups to add to our network. You are the means for us to be able to do this.

We are working hard to keep our costs very low, however, there are some basic maintenance costs associated with operating our organization. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation, you may do so here:
