OATS provides a complete service for you and your pets moving process. We facilitate this process with our knowledge and expertise in flights, flight regulations, flight container requirements, pickup and delivery arrangements, quarantine, boarding, import and export arrangements and the proper identification needed. And as these requirements, regulations and restrictions change – OATS stays abreast of these changes while making the necessary adjustments to your pet’s travel needs. We are a Registered Intermediate Handler with the USDA (Registration #93-H-0091), under the Animal Welfare Act.
The O’Brien Family started OATS because of their love for animals and to assist in the humane transportation of animals worldwide. Utilizing their vast knowledge and experience in the animal shipping business, OATS began ships pets and animals of all sizes and species around the world.
OATS can transport virtually any animal on the planet!
Each animal in every species is unique. In addition to our high-level care and attention to the animals, some may require special attention that is specialized for that particular animal or circumstance. Such things as customized containers, food, and special bedding may be necessary for a safe and secure journey. Animals deserve our best efforts to insure that their travel plans are coordinated to best suit their needs. Because animals rely on us to get them there, we at OATS work closely with our staff veterinarian, airlines, and other professional transporters in making this happen.
Each shipment requires our individual attention to details, as transporting a dog is entirely different from transporting a Komodo dragon. Health Certificates, vaccinations, containers, permits and requirements vary from state to state and country to country for each species.
We are here to assist you with all aspects of your animal’s travel. Our experienced team has the ability to move any animal, anywhere in the world. Let us work with you in making your pets travel a safe and happy journey!
Please let us know if you have a unique animal, a high volume of animals, or a special situation that we can help with!
