Safe & Humane Animal Transport

Rescue Express is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that saves thousands of lives each year by offering free animal transport for approved rescue partners.

Each of our weekly transports bring hundreds of homeless animals from high-kill shelters and overpopulated areas in California to rescue partners in Oregon, Washington and Canada who work very hard to find them loving, forever homes.

Our fleet includes 4 school buses that have been converted to safely & humanely transport 150 animals at a time.

There is no greater calling for us and we work very hard to save as many animals as we can each year. We rely upon generous contributions from donors and supporters in order to offer our services at the lowest cost possible to our partners. Please consider joining our mission and saving lives by donating today.
