What if I live too far away to drive to pick up my new puppy?
Don’t worry! About half of our puppies fly to their new homes. If you live too far away, we take care of setting up flights and get your new best friend to the nearest airport to you we can. Because we are able to do this for our customers, we have puppies anywhere from California over to Maine, down to Florida and many states in between!
To go more into what this process looks like, we work with Runway Pets who is a Pet Taxi service. We have been working with them for many years on getting puppies all over the USA and even Internationally. We work through what flights and times work for you and let Runway Pets our preferences. Then they do all of the bookwork with the airlines to have your puppy fly through the PPS system with an Airline. On the morning of the big day, we make the journey to O’Hare or Indianapolis International Airport where we leave your puppy with the PPS personnel. The puppy is on the plane in less than 2 hours and is on the way to the Airport you selected. As soon as the flight lands, your puppy is one of the first to be off of the plane. In less than an hour after the plane lands, your puppy is at the PPS desk ready to meet you!
We want to make sure every puppy is healthy before we would fly them home so, we make sure they are in tip-top shape by having them get a Certified Health Certificate from a licensed veterinarian. This helps us to sleep better at night and it also should help alleviate any concerns a family may have when they are getting a puppy they have only seen via facetime or zoom.
