Regulations and norms for transporting pets

Dogs and cats

Dogs & Cats

The Containers used to transport dogs and cats must be:

Large enough for the animal to sit in a natural position, turn around, and lie down
Equipped with a securely closing door that operates without any special tools
Constructed of wood, metal or any material of sufficient strength to withstand normal transportation
Free from protrusions or any other potentially harmful surface inside
Well ventilated with openings on at least three sides
Easy in lifting. Therefore must have handholds
Leak proof. A solid bottom is a must.
Roll-free. If the kennel has wheels, the wheels must be removed, retracted, or in some other way be made inoperable in order to prevent rolling
Constructed to prevent escape of the animal during normal handling
Padded with suitable absorbent material to ensure cleanliness from litter.
Constructed to have separate containers for food and water, or one container with separate compartments so that the food and water will not mix together
Marked with "Live Animal" in letters at least one inch high on the top and one or more sides of the kennel

The number of pets permitted per kennel is as follows (dogs and cats):

One dog or cat, 6 months of age or older
One puppy or kitten, 8 weeks to 6 months of age, weighing more than 20 pounds each
Two puppies or kittens, 8 weeks to 6 months of age that are of comparable size, weighing 20 pounds or less each
Weaned puppies and kittens younger than 8 weeks of age may not be shipped
