We're raising money to acquire the first two transport vans in the RuffRiders fleet, giving us the ability to pull dogs from death-row, provide assistance during a disaster, or reunite furry family members cross-country at a moment's notice. Each van will be uniquely equipped to serve a specific purpose and configured to help the maximum number of animals in-need.

Regional Van 1 -
This short wheel-base van will be upfitted with kennels of various sizes throughout the entirety of the cargo area to service rescue runs within a 700-mile radius. Climate control will ensure the dogs enjoy a safe and comfortable ride.

National Van 1 -

This long wheel-base van is designed for cross-country trips or disaster relief, requiring multiple night stays. It will be upfitted with basic living quarters including a bed and kitchenette, while providing maximum kennel space for dogs in transport.

By acquiring an in-house fleet of vehicles, future transport donations will go further by reducing costly expenses such as vehicle rental and damage waivers, lodging, outside meals, and more.

Our fundraising goal of $75,000 goes directly towards the following costs to get the RuffRiders Transport Fleet Program rolling:

- Two gently-used RAM ProMaster Vans
- Upfitting hardware and labor provided by Wayfarer Vans 
- Branded vinyl vehicle wraps
- Commercial vehicle insurance
- Transport volunteer background & driving record checks

Any funding exceeding the $75,000 goal will be used to give more dogs a second chance at life!
