emergency pet taxi

Emergency service is terrific!

I have had several experiences with Canine Car and each one has been fabulous! Alice who owns and operates the business is terrific. Friendly, pet-loving, on-time, flexible. Everything you would want in a service which takes care of your best friend.

Most important is that she will get up in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT for emergencies which is priceless. Try to get any of the other pet car services to do that.

I will always use Canine Car Service for all my pet transportation needs. It is truly terrific!

Canine Car and Alice is a lifesaver!

What a terrific find! In the middle of this frigid, wet and sloppy winter, Alice of Canine Car was there promptly to go to the vet, waited as promised and even had treats on board for pets whose owners allowed them. She was very pleasant, clearly loves pets and a lifesaver. I was happy to know she works 24/7 and is available for emergencies at all hours. Thank you Canine Car!

Genuinely cares about me and my dog

Alice has been a life saver since my dog got injured! My dog is going through physical therapy so we have a lot of appointments and it's been a huge relief having someone I can trust to get us around. here are some things I've noticed/ experienced:

- last minute appointments- it definitely helps to schedule in advance, but she been really accommodating when I've had to call last minute to get a ride

- realistic expectations- in my experience, a lot of other pet taxis I've used will tell you they can be there in 5-10 minutes when it actually takes them 30 minutes, if it's going to take 30 then that's what Alice tells you it will take

- always arrives early or on time: I'm never stuck just waiting around

- genuinely cares about her customers (2 legged and 4 legged ones): I thought it was adorable when she took a photo of my pup when I got in for her contact list, offered her treats, and really tried to help keep her calm

- great follow up: my appointments can be a little irregular, but Alice always double checks with me if I need a ride when I forget to call her which has been really helpful when I'm being a little scatter brained ha

Overall, this service has exceeded my expectations

Emergency trip to Animal Medical Center



I was in a real jam today. I had to get my 50-pound pit-mix from the Upper Westside to Midtown East for an emergency visit to the Animal Medical Center. After being refused by several yellow cabs, I was referred to Canine Car.

Alice was able to pick me up on short notice and I think you would have a hard time beating the price.  She is lovely, not only professional but extremely comforting during the drive. 

Alice helped to make what a very stressful day a little bit better.  My pup's going to be ok and I look forward to using her services under better circumstances.

24 Hours Emergency Pet Taxi

Funaki, Milk contact.jpg

愛犬の足が悪くなり、仕事場と家の往復を毎日アリスにしてもらっています。 かれこれ半年になりますが今まで使ったペットタクシーの中で一番信頼できます。
値段もリーズナブルな上に、とてもいい人で、いつもオンタイム。 24時間何時でも必ず電話をとってくれ迎えにきてくれるので、いざというときにもお勧めです。

Canine Car and Alice: Above the Rest!

As a transport coordinator for the Mayor’ Alliance for NYC’s Animals we have many special needs for animals: emergencies from Animal Care & Control, medical,to and from events, everything you can imagine in a city that moves! And Alice moves effortlessly through the city: she has facilitated meet and greets to adoption, taken the injured to urgent care and driven her share of turtles, guinea pigs and birds to safety. Alice treats each one as though it were her own pet which sets her ears above the rest! Thank you, Alice, for years of dedicated service to the most needy New Yorkers!

Canine Car: Dependable, Helpful, Patient.

Alice and her car service are the best! Dependable, helpful, patient. Alice transported our dog, Oscar, to/from the vet … Emergency service, last minute calls. She was there for us when we humans and our dog needed her. Alice is gifted with animals – calm, cheerful. And her wonderful way with us and Oscar helped make a very stressful situation more bearable.

Emergency ride to Animal Medical Center

Alice was incredible. My dog had to be taken in an emergency situation to Animal Medical Center at 4 in the morning. She picked up the phone in the middle of the night, rushed to my building, and actually sat with me for hours in the waiting room until she had to leave for another job. She then came back hours later to take us to my vet. I don’t think my dog would have made it until morning, and she even called to check on him that night and days later. She clearly cares about pets and their owners. I couldn’t recommend her more!
