Planning to Ship a Pet over the Holidays? Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute to Plan!

Listen up, fellow pet lovers! If you're planning to travel by air with a pet in the next few weeks, be aware that you're going to face a few hurdles. As we've discussed in the past, it's better to avoid flying with a pet in mid to late December and early January, as you're much more likely to encounter weather delays, office closures and paperwork hold-ups that may prevent an easy trip.

Even if you're willing to take a risk and face these obstacles, please be aware that PetRelocation will be operating with an abbreviated shipment schedule this holiday season and won't be accepting any last-minute shipments during the busiest times.

If you're interested in receiving assistance from PetRelocation for a move occurring between Dec. 16 and Jan. 13, please contact us by Dec. 13 to make arrangements.

If you contact us after Dec. 13, the earliest your pet can fly will be Jan. 13. Also, no shipments will be scheduled for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

We look forward to discussing your options with you and getting your pets home safely where they belong, so contact us soon with your questions about flying with your pet near the holidays (or any other time, for that matter).

Thanks for keeping this in mind, and happy holidays!
