PET TRANSPORTATION

Air Nototo can help you with your pet travel in the US (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands). Domestic pet travel requires that your pet is fit to travel, over 8 weeks of age, and is current on their rabies vaccination (if applicable). We also provide regional ground transportation.

We have a network of ground transporters we work with that can assist with cross country moves of difficult to ship snub nosed breeds. Additionally, with our network of airline carriers, we can provide airport to airport service to most airports in the United States. Planning your pet’s relocation in addition to moving your household can be overwhelming and time consuming. We make arrangements for boarding, veterinary services, even advise you on temporary housing solutions that are pet friendly. Our full service staff is well versed with all the requirements to ensure your pet travels safely and arrives using the most direct route to their destination.

Preparing for Transport

When preparing your pet for transport, include any necessary food, restraints, bedding, etc that you would like to accompany your pet on the trip. This also includes receiving a certificate of health from your vet, if you do not have one already.


We’ll arrive at your home for pick up (unless receiving a new pet from a breeder out of state) and require both photo I.D. and a signature from the person specified to be present at pick up. If you are receiving a new pet from a breeder out of state, at pick up we will send a photo verification to ensure the animal we are picking up on your behalf is the same animal you paid for.


Your pet begins its journey, and receives plenty of exercise and love along the way!
We arrange for drop-off. We will call with a given time frame for drop-off to ensure you are there to greet your pet upon his/her arrival home. At drop-off, we will also require photo identification and the signature of the person expected to receive the animal.


You (hopefully) write us a great review! If you were satisfied with the pet transport process, we’d love to hear about it and see some photos of their arrival home to you!
