What is a Run Sheet?

 
A run sheet is a document that is sent out every week to transporters and receiving rescues and adopters.  Run sheets come out on Fridays.  The run sheet is sent out by that week's Transport Coordinator (Lauren or Marilyn).
 
To the right, you will see a copy of a sample run sheet without driver information.  All driver information is considered private and is securely safeguarded to protect our transporters' privacy. 
 
Here is how to 'read' the run sheet:
 
 
 
1.  These are the shelters sending dogs ------------>
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2.  This is the person monitoring the transport.  All transports are monitored to account for time, safety and to ensure our dogs get to where they need to go.
-------------------------------------------------------->
 
 
3.  All the important information regarding how to handle dogs and specifics related to this particular transport are listed here ----------------------------->
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
4.  This is the passenger list with a detailed listing of all the dogs and cats on transport.  Notice that each animal is given a unique identifier.  An "H" means that the animal originated from Hancock County Pound, a "Q" means that the animal originated from Quincy, and so on.  All dogs are labeled on their collar with their unique identifier and their paperwork is also labeled accordingly.  Identifiers are essential because many dogs look alike on transport.  The number of animals on a transport ranges from as little as five to as many as 50.
-------------------------------------------------------->
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
5.  This is an example of a 'leg.'  This tells the transporter what leg they are driving, when and where to arrive and what passengers they will be responsible for.  Note the number of crates per leg.  All dogs must be crated! ---------------------------->
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
6.  Notice the run sheet has a Route A and Route B.
-------------------------------------------------------->
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
7.  This is a typical merged transport.  The transport merges in Joliet at noon and all legs from Joliet are to leave by 12:30 to continue the legs from Joliet.  This part of the run sheet explains the legs from Joliet. -------------------------------------------->

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT INFO!

Always remember the rules of the road:

  • This is a fully monitored transport.  If there are any changes or updates to the run sheet, you will be notified by email.  Please note that paperwork will accompany each dog as specified below on the passenger list – keep this paperwork safe as it is a required component for transport.
  • This is a double merge transport.  This transport begins in 2 places and merges in Joliet at noon.  Each route up to Joliet is labeled Route A or Route B.  After the transports merge in Joliet, there will be several legs from Joliet.  Read the run sheet carefully.
  • PLEASE call the Transport Monitor if you are running late AND when you have completed your leg.  This helps us keep the transport on time!
  • Don't sacrifice safety for convenience. Drive safely, obey traffic laws and make sure all passengers are crated or strapped in tightly.
  • Arrive 15 minutes early before your leg is scheduled to leave so you can help walk, water and load the animals and leave on time.
  • Hand off the paperwork first, then the animals-- this way you won't forget their documentation!
  • Make sure collars are tight and please do not loosen them. Dogs can sometimes back out of collars, even if they appear secure, so if a dog is pulling away from you, try not to tug, but call him/her to you instead.
  • Keep your furry passengers happy: Bring crates, treats, water, leashes and pooper bags to clean up after them if they potty outside. Don’t intermix puppies from different litters!
  • Please disinfect any water bowls, blankets, or crates used on transport as a precaution for the next passengers you may have.  Make this a routine part of your transporting duties and/or when over nighting or fostering.   
  • Smile, have fun and THANK YOU!  

 

MAKE SURE YOU CALL THE TRANSPORT MONITOR AT THE END OF YOUR LEG!
