About Us

We are a small group of volunteers that wanted to do something to help our furry friends in Adams County Ohio. We started transporting dogs from the Adams County Dog Pound to Veterinary Hospitals and to Rescues. It's really been a rewarding experience to help these dogs, and now cats, get a second chance to have a good life in a loving home. You can follow us on Facebook and check out what we are doing and what we have accomplished!


We also are happy to announce that we have a FB page for our rescue efforts in Adams County Ohio. We do our best to keep it updated. Check us out on ACORN Adams County Ohio Rescue Network.

Pets For People

Lickety Split Pet Transport came to the aid of the Humane Society of Adams County on Friday Dec. 2, 2011, by volunteering to go pick up dog and cat food donations in Columbus, Ohio. My husband and I borrowed the Humane Society truck early on a frosty, foggy Friday morning and drove to Columbus with no heat! We were advised to dress warmly and we took them seriously! Once we got to the pick up location, got our number, drove to the loading point, and saw our three pallets of dog and cat food, we knew we were in trouble. The pick-up truck with cap would not accommodate those pallets! We had to have the pallets moved to the side where we could break them down and load the truck manually! My husband is disabled and I had just come off of working a 12 hour night shift! We rallied ourselves to face up to our task and while he cut apart the loads and opened boxes with his pocket knife, I started packing boxes till they were very full and loaded the truck. I was crawling in around on the truck bed where there had been a recent load of rescued goats and some of the used straw and droppings were still there! I ignored this and started stacking and arranging all of the food. We had to also pile it up behind the seats. And, we were told that we had to break down the empty boxes and take them with us! We got it all to fit and had a little spare room for more. We couldn't have gotten all of this done without the aid of other Rescues that were also picking up their donations. Most of them had trailers and larger trucks to use and when they saw our plight, they jumped in and helped us. We thank them all so very much for everything!! We made a lot of new friends and helped others finish loading, too. We stayed and talked and helped till everyone had been loaded. Our return ride was more pleasant with the warmth from the afternoon sun shining through the windows to keep us warm. We had a wonderful lunch at Bob Evans, filled the truck up with gas, and arrived back at the farm. We talked with Christine, the Humane Officer, who was recovering from pneumonia, and played with the dogs and pups she keeps on her farm. We got home around 4 pm and we both crashed in bed after checking our messages and making arrangements for dinner. I slept through the night till the next morning and got up early and went back to work. All in all, we had another successful adventure that helped our furry friends in need!
