In August 2016, Dacia Rohlehr was faced with a dilemma all pet parents fear. Her dog, Liam, was very sick, and needed to be transported from one emergency veterinary clinic to another – but she was unable to drive him herself. Dacia was dismayed to discover there was no service available to help her. As a result, Liam’s treatment was delayed.
Eventually, Liam made it to the clinic but did not survive the illness. Dacia decided that no dog – or guardian – should ever have to undergo such a preventable tragedy. Her solution? She founded Paws En Route, a premium transportation service for dogs, cats, and every other kind of companion animal. This chauffeur service for animals takes the burden off those who aren’t able to transport their pets themselves, and helps prevent incidents like the one Dacia and Liam faced.
