My name is Melissa and I am a professional USDA Certified pet transporter. I am the owner of Whiskers, Tails & Scales Pet Transport & Boarding, LLC. A people person and animal lover to the core. That is what prompted me to start this business. Although, I know I can’t have every animal/pet in the world right now, I sure can love yours for our short trip and/or stay together.
Whiskers, Tails & Scales, provides professional pet transportation for (whiskers) cats, (tails) dogs, (scales) reptiles, also those in between (birds & small pets). We safely relocate your pet to its destination via ground transportation, door to door.

It is vital to have these credentials.
For your convenience I also offer Afterpay. Pay in 4 installments, every 2 weeks in 6 weeks. Interest FREE.
I know you need top priority service for your fur-baby(s). I offer GPS tracking the entire ride from pickup to delivery of your pet(s) transportation.

We are very particular with all pets. All crates are sanitized after every use. We take strict care in maintaining cleanliness to prevent Canine Parvovirus, E.coli bacteria, viruses and contamination. Our veterinary approved disinfectant is an EPA approved hospital grade cleaner. It is used in many of the world’s leading veterinary hospitals and zoological institutions as well as by leading reptile, avian and exotic pet breeders and keepers.
