INTERNATIONAL PET SHIPPING
Our checklist for preparing your pets for travel.
The airlines follow IATA container requirements based on species and size of animal, which can be found at IATA.org. Please note that if you are shipping a snub-nosed breed, IATA has additional requirements to allow extra space in the container. Many of the hard-plastic crates that are sold online and at your local pet store will meet the requirements of IATA as long as they are of the correct size for your pet, have proper ventilation, solid bottoms, are strong and stable, and do not have plastic clamps holding the crate together. The guidelines are very specific and are not all listed here, so take your time making sure you purchase the correct crate for your pet.

“With only 10 days notice Feathers & Fur made it all happen, they were so kind, professional & made the process stress free. They delivered my dog happy in perfect condition into my mother’s arms on schedule, updating me on their great app with photos & messages all the way and reassuring me as my dog made the journey. I could not recommend them highly enough.”
“We recently used FFExpress to ship our two pups to Europe. I couldn’t express my gratitude for them helping us!! We had a few hiccups but they did everything they could to help fix them. They took care of our two babies and made sure we knew they were safe the entire time. Would definitely recommend Feathers and Fur express to anyone!”
“We were at a loss for how to get our beloved pittbull/boxer mix from Atlanta to Girona, Spain. We’d almost lost hope when FFE gave us great recommendations on how we could be the process as smooth as possible with very clear instructions. We had no trouble, and our precious pup arrived with a wagging tail! Definitely a wonderful service!”
“Despite trying to move our Labrador from Houston during a pandemic and then a historic power failure on Houston, FFE came through for us. The team kept us in constant contact and went out of their way to help our veterinarian get set up with the USDA portal. Would highly recommend them for anyone moving pets internationally”
“Marck was really awesome. He took care care of all the paperwork and kept us updated. Great communication, great service! Our rabbit made it back home safely. Thank you!”
“Coco made it to Holland. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong but none of it the fault of Feather and Fur Express. They were wonderful helping to fix the issues with my vet, FedEx and the USDA while time was ticking. Great communication in a very stressful time. Coco is settled in and happy.”
