Shipping a Dog, Cat or Other Pet?
There is no single checklist because every pet is different and unique. But IPATA can help.
Here are some FAQs to get you started.
Why does an airline refuse to fly pets when it is too hot or cold?
How do I find quarantine requirements for a specific country?
Do you have a receipt from “IPATA” covering payment for a puppy or for shipping?
IPATA is an association of professional pet shippers.
IPATA does NOT ship pets; our members ship pets but under their own company name.
There is no legitimate pet shipping company with “IPATA” or “ipata” in their name.
If you see a company using the IPATA name, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org
