Welcome to Rescue Road Trips

We are a non-profit that provides low-cost transport service for Rescue Dogs in the Deep South and an Ohio based rescue. We provide loving, humane road trips for homeless, unwanted, unloved dogs, facing assured-immediate death from Southern Kill Shelters. We help move them to Loving “Forever Homes” and a second chance at life in New England and surrounding areas.

Improving the lives of Northern Families while saving the lives of Southern Dogs. Low Cost Transport Service for Rescue Dogs in the Deep South. Learn More.


We play an important role in the adoption of dogs because we are the caring hands that transport them from where they are into the arms of those wonderful people who are adopting them. We also foster and provide dogs for adoption and support our fellow rescue services providers.

Help Us Help Dogs

Saving animals is a very expensive operation. There are costs concerning vet visits, food, medicines, boarding, gas to get them to and from, and many other things that can become quickly overwhelming. Your donations help us help dogs. Donate Here.

Adopted Dogs

Featured Homeless Pets

Meet Harry!

This handsome guy is available for adoption through Houston Shaggy Dog Rescue. Harry is a 5 year old mix breed, our best guess is yorkie/chihuahua mix. He has had a hard life on the streets of Texas but is ready to be loved forever by a family of his very own. He was hit by a car and surgeons had to amputate one of his back legs. However, this sweet guy still gets around very well on three legs. He was heart worm positive but has gone through treatment and is ready for adoption. Harry is a timid little guy and will require a quiet home with no children. He is currently in foster care where he loves to snuggle in bed with his foster mom at night and gets along well with the other dogs in the home. Harry is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, and microchipped. He is being fostered in Texas but can be transported to the North-East by Greg on the Rescue Road Trips truck. If you think you are the perfect forever family for Harry you can find the Adoption Application here.
