Saving Homeless Animals Nationwide

Maverick Pet Transportation & Rescue, is the brainchild of Rick Roper. Rick is an over the road truck driver with 20 years’ experience under his belt. He has also spent many years in community service by being a volunteer firefighter and paramedic.
Rick set out to combine his love of animals and his career, to form this nonprofit animal transportation and rescue.

Rick, along with having the responsibility to deliver retail freight, also handles the logistics of the transports and transports rescued animals to other rescues or to their new forever homes while making his deliveries.

We have put together a plan, and organization, that we feel will save more animals lives, not just locally, but nationwide.


Maverick Pet Transportation & Rescue's mission is to rescue animals from high kill shelters and provide, to other rescues and adopters, a low cost, reputable, safe and loving transport of animals to their new homes. We have no facility. We are 100% all volunteer.

Here are some highlights of our plan.

Rescue the animals from high kill shelters, place them in foster care, rehabilitate, vaccinate and spay or neuter prior to adoption.

Place the animals in healthy homes so the animals will have long, loving lives.
Implement a community wide spay and neuter program.

Create a "pay it forward” Transportation program. We will take donations made to our organization or other rescue organizations for transport, and donate some of those funds back, so another animal has a chance as well.

Raise awareness in communities of the importance of vaccinating and spaying and neutering your animal.

Create a 4H club that can save shelter animals by placing them with its members. The animals can then be prepared and showcased at various venues for competition, and then be placed in our adoption program.

Help protect family pets by providing microchip clinics locally and nationally.

This plan, along with donations, are just some of the ideas that we at Maverick Pet Transportation & Rescue, Inc. would like to implement to save more animals lives.

There are millions of animals euthanized every day in the United States. Please, do your part, be a responsible pet owner and vaccinate, spay and neuter and most of all….. Adopt, don't shop.
