IPATA Mission Statement

The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association is a non-profit trade association of independent members who are dedicated to the safe and humane transport of pets and other animals.

IPATA Overview

The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA), the non-profit trade organization dedicated to the care and welfare of pets and animals during transport, supports air travel for pets through commercial airlines cargo systems as being the safest, most expedient and humane means of moving animals throughout the United States and around the world.

IPATA has become a global network of more than 447 member companies in 84 countries across the world. IPATA members ship millions of pets each year and can provide countless stories of shipments that went completely as planned, where the animal reached its destination happy and healthy and was reunited with its owners. IPATA works with local governments, policymakers, and the airlines directly to make sure pet travel is as safe as possible.
