Large or Small, Nothing is Impossible it Just Takes a Little Time --Online request and calls to Air Animal Pet Movers from relocating pet parents and from expatriates returning home increased during the pandemic. Team Air Animal moved over 100 pets March through May. Today Air Animal® Pet Movers’ experienced pet move managers are working through the pent-up demand as flight options gradually return.In the middle of March stay-at-home orders, Air Animal organized and moved one huge Alaskan malamute and one Havanese –both out of Shanghai China. “Astro weighs about 120 pounds and has a custom-built wooden crate. His pet parents had returned to Elmira, New York leaving him with their helper in Shanghai. Astro’s flights cancelled several times, then over a weekend flights connecting through Russia and on to New York City opened up,” said Cory Robinette, Air Animal COO. “I felt good about it because Astro would be well cared for by service partners in Russia. If a flight cancelled, Astro would have the run of a farm in Russia. Everything went flawlessly. Astro arrived in Elmira after a ground transport from JFK in New York.“Milli’s flights didn’t go as planned. She left Shanghai flying into Russia but the connecting flights to Berlin, Germany cancelled three times. Her owners were thrilled Milli had a fun week on vacation at the farm in Russia. She arrived in Berlin—on a German holiday, no less--happy and healthy,” Robinette added.“The knowledge and resources we’ve gained over 43 years has been tested during the pandemic. We’ve learned new tricks and we’ve had the pleasure to work with new service partners who treat our clients and their animals like the valued family members they are,” said Dr. Walter M. Woolf, Air Animal founding veterinarian and president. Air Animal’s team is moving more pets every week as airlines begin to accept pet flight bookings to many of the world’s major destinations . They strongly recommend contacting them early giving the team time to review pet vaccinations and be ready when flights become available. “We move members of the family. We handle the details so their furry, feathered, scaly or wet best friends arrive healthy and happy after their travels. We’ve learned that repeating information in as many channels as possible reduces anxiety and manages expectations,” said Woolf.
