Airborne Animals will arrange transportation of birds, and other small pets (rabbits, ferrets, etc.) as well as turtles, tortoises and reptiles.
While many pet shippers do not handle bird transport, it is one of our specialties.
Our parent Company Dog Gone Taxi can handle all your cats and dogs.
We do not relocate fish. We have also assisted with small farm animals—miniature horses, goats, and pigs—and even some exotic animals like hyenas, primates and a coatimundi.
Keep in mind that most birds and exotic pets require special permits to move internationally.
We utilize the services of commercial airlines who ship lots of pets and know how to do it well. Many airlines have their own pet care facilities at their respective hubs, which can provide pet care upon arrival and during layovers. In many aircraft the same air is circulated through the cabin and then downstairs in the cargo area and back up again. Federal regulations stipulate the minimum requirements each airline must meet in order to accept pets, including climate controlled areas for pets. And yes, the entire plane is pressurized – it would implode at high altitudes if it were not.
For most airlines, cargo shipping costs are related to the size of the crate, not the actual weight. The Animal Welfare Act and IATA Live Animal Regulations are clear in defining the proper size for pet shipping. Additionally, crates must be labeled appropriately. We go one step further by attaching a laminated tag with the owner's/consignee's name, address and telephone, as well as our own as the shipper.
All pets shipped will be required to have current vaccines and a health certificate from a veterinarian. International shipping will usually require special documentation, and often other vaccines or blood tests prior to shipping.
We do not accept tranquilized pets for shipment. Several airlines have also adopted this policy, and tranquilized pets will be turned away. Tranquilization was once the leading cause of injury, illness or death during pet shipment. If you have concerns or questions about this policy, please contact us, we want your pet to arrive safe and alive!
