Why take them with you?
In many families, the cats and dogs are more than pets: they are integral members of a close-knit family.
They have given you years of love, companionship and protection. Do you really know what will happen to them if you leave them behind? It’s usually better to keep your whole family together when you move.

Guidance for Calculating Properly Sized Pet Airline Shipping Containers
The size of the container (crate, kennel, carrier) must be such that it will allow the pet to stand in a natural position turn around easily and to lie down in a natural manner at all times.
The images above gives measuring directions and a guideline for calculating the correct size airline shipping container for your pet/s. They relate to a pet standing in a natural position.
A – Length of the pet from the tip on nose to root of tail.
B – Height from ground to top of leg or elbow joint.
C – Width across right & left shoulder.
D – Height of the pet in natural standing position from ground to the top of the head or the tip of the ear in erect ear breads. (for a cat you might find it easier to measure height while cat is sitting with head erect).
Minimum Container Dimensions are:
Length = A+1/2 of B
Width = C x 2 (1 pet) or C x 3 (2 pets)
Height = D
