Buy a Seat & Save a Life!

Over 4 million shelter animals die every year in the US waiting for their forever homes.

You can make a difference by buying a life-saving seat on the START Bus (affectionately known as “The Beast”). Select one of our many packages below. You will receive your bus ticket via email after purchasing your seat. Following the actual transport, you will also receive a hand-written Thank You from the animal you saved, along with an update of the lucky one’s name, breed, and photo. All donations are tax-deductible. A big thank you for your support!

Corporate sponsorship opportunities will be available soon.
