Traveling with Pets
Dogs, cats, and most other warm-blooded animals transported in commerce are protected by the Animal Welfare Act. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service enforces this law. APHIS' shipping regulations help ensure that people who transport and handle animals covered under the AWA treat them humanely. Airlines and other shippers are affected by regulations established to protect the well-being of animals in transit.
