How do I ship my Cat to another State or from State to State - Across the Country

Pet Transportation, Pet Relocation and Cat Shipping Across the States and Internationally requires special care. Cat shipping costs can vary. Some destinations have implemented programs whereby pet owners have an alternative to the traditional long-term (6 month) quarantine. By meeting prescribed criteria of pre-entry veterinary requirements quarantine periods can be reduced to a minimum of 1 month.

Here at Animal Transporters, We specialize in helping pet owners meet the strict requirements of these pet transportation and import programs. We have been in this business for many years and our policy of "zero-tolerance for error" has contributed to our success, and earned us an excellent reputation while offering great rates on cat shipping costs.

Transporting , Shipping and/ or Relocating Cats from the US to Foreign Countries and state to state is a complicated process and requires specialized knowledge of import and export documentation, veterinary procedures, timing, airline policies, pet  travel crate requirements, quarantine, boarding accommodation, and proper animal identification.

We provide professional assistance to pet owners, breeders, and their veterinarians to make this process as seamless and stress-free as possible. We can provide a complete "door-to-door" service to ensure that your pet makes it to your new home without any problems.

If you want to ship your Cat, Cat or Pet to another state or from state to state & across the country by yourself, here are a few things you need to know:

1. Contact your airline for requirements and restrictions for transporting Cats by plane... there are a limited number of spaces on a plane for animals.

2. Check the calendar. For airlines that ship pets in the cargo area, traveling in high heat can be extremely dangerous for your Cat. This is why Delta Airlines has a standing embargo on pets traveling as checked baggage from May 15 to September 15. Even if your airline allows pets as cargo during the hot summer months, it's not in your pet's best interest.

3. Book your pet's flight as far in advance as possible to ensure that he can travel within the time frame you need.

4. Walk your pet before traveling to the airport and before checking him into the flight's cargo. To avoid accidents and keep your Cat comfortable, limit food and water intake before the flight.

6. Arrange for quick pickup at the destination so your Cat spends as little time as possible in the cargo holding area

Tips, Warnings and more important info regarding Pet Transportation, Relocation and Cat Shipping:

Ship your Cat in a sturdy, plastic pet carrier with adequate ventilation and a secure mechanism for latching the door to prevent escapes. Your carrier should be large enough for your Cat to stand up, lie down and turn around. Mark it with "LIVE ANIMAL," arrows indicating which side is up, your Cat's name and your complete contact information.

If you're flying, your small Cat can fly in the cabin with you as carry-on luggage on many airlines. Check the specific airline for requirements on carrier specifications and dimensions. Most providers require the carrier to fit under the seat in front of you.

For Cats with special needs or health problems, travel by car is generally safest..
