Pet Air Courier Services

Safe Air Transport For Your Dogs, Cats & Other Animals

We provide a specialised air service for shipping pets to any main destination in South Africa.Furthermore this service focuses on the safety & comfort of your pet throughout the shipping process. Our service will ensure that your dog, cat or any other pet is safely uplifted from your home & delivered to the specified address. We do however request that your animal is secured in a pet travel kennel.

Whether you are just going on holiday with your pet or need a pet relocation service we can help get your animal to its destination safely & with minimal discomfort.

What You Need To Know

Your animal needs to have a valid Rabies Inoculation Certificate

The container needs to be strong enough to contain & support the animal & should comply with Animal Welfare & SPCA regulations.

Acceptable containers are those that are rigid & made from plastic or hardwood or plywood with 2 secure door fasteners as well as a rigid space bar along the sides (so that two containers cannot stand flush next to each other).

Ventilation holes should be small enough not to allow any limb of the pet to extend through the hole.

Containers should also be large enough for your pet to stand, turn around or lie down comfortably.

Not all animals are able to be transported by air – we will advise you if you’re unsure

Puppies & kittens less than 8 weeks old are not allowed to go by air as they cannot self regulate their body temperatures.

Tranquilising or sedating your pets for air travel is not recommended as it comes with considerable risk to your pet as it reduces its ability to naturally respnod to stress which can prove harmful.

As a final precaution & before collecting your pet we will email you a check list from the airline company.
