Latest Updates

On Dec. 1, 2018, we began accepting dogs, cats and ferrets into Dublin (DUB).


On Oct. 1, 2018, we implemented a few changes to further ensure each animal entrusted to us receives the best-in-class travel experience they deserve. These changes include:

  • Customer acknowledgment: We require that every customer sign our acknowledgment form to confirm the proper preparation steps have been taken prior to drop-off.
  • Breed verification: We standardized our breed verification form and provided a template for our letter of acclimation.
  • Cutting back on connections: We now only ship animals on routes with a maximum of one connection.
  • Chow Chow: We added the Chow Chow to the restricted breed list.
