Pet Movers - Pet Relocation - Pet Shippers
Using a service to ship your pet may be your only alternative in certain situations. Though vets recommend ground transportation for your pet, each year, thousands of animals travel unaccompanied on passenger planes as airfreight.
Take time to research each aspect of your pet’s travel. Most important is your confidence in the people handling your furry companion.
Recent Federal Aviation Administration regulations require commercial airlines to accept cargo only from known shippers, so when the cargo is your creature, only a professional pet shipper will do.
The Independent Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA), is an international network of concerned pet shippers, whose members are registered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and adhere to the rules and regulations of the USDA's Animal Welfare Act. They provide professional, competent, caring pet transportation relocation services throughout the USA and around the world. To quote their website: “Professional Pet Shippers facilitate the process with their knowledge and expertise in flights, flight regulations, flight container requirements, pickup and delivery arrangements, quarantine, boarding, import and export arrangements and proper identification. And as requirements, regulations and restrictions change, a professional stays abreast of these changes and makes the necessary adjustments to your pet's travel arrangements.”
If Molly or Max is traveling between N.Y.C., D.C., Chicago, Denver or L.A., consider using Pet Airways, a new airline that flies pet exclusively, in their aircraft cabins.
Midwest Airlines are so moved by their love for animals, they have a comprehensive Pet Program.
You needn’t own a car to get the pet to the vet, (or anywhere else). Pet Taxis have sprung up in big cities for local transport, like Pet Taxi in NYC, Paws Around in Chicago, Los Angeles Pet Taxi, and, Pet Taxi & Pet Services Unlimited in Cleveland. Typically outfitted with crates, water dishes, climate-control and safety devices, these taxis will also often serve as ambulances with stretchers and ramps for special needs animals. Some services proffer pet boarding, grooming, walking, talking and day care for your favorite furry one.
