The Professional Pet Transporters

Airborne Animals LLC is dedicated to safe pet moving—you can rely on our professional pet transportation services of your household pets. Airborne Animals was established in 1985 as a pet transportation company. Owner Sally Smith purchased Airborne Animals in 2000 after retiring from veterinary hospital work.

Smith has served as both the President and on many committees of the International Pet and Animals Transportation Association (, and has been honored with the prestigious IPATA Millie Wolff award twice, the only person to have received it twice, for providing, supporting or developing opportunities which advance the professionalism of persons involved in the safe and humane transport of animals. She was also given the Lifetime Achievement award in 2017.


Local and International Pet Transport

Our pet transportation services are by ground or by air and include relocating small pets (such as rabbits, ferrets and turtles), dogs, cats, and birds by commercial airlines' cargo services both domestically and internationally, and by road within the Northeast of America. We do not have our own planes, and there are no pet only specialized airlines. Pets are all shipped on regular commercial passenger carriers or occasionally on cargo only airlines.

Bird Transportation

Many companies do not ship birds, or rather, do not have much experience moving birds. Airborne Animals LLC moves birds regularly, and we have successfully shipped birds to Europe, to the Middle East, to other parts of the world. Birds are both complicated and expensive to move internationally. Click here to find out more.
