Covid-19 Travel Update

Options for pet air travel are extremely limited at this time and it is unclear when travel will begin to normalize. Our PenderAIR team is closely following the changing regulations and requirements to ensure we continue to provide the highest level of service for our clients and their pets.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you are planning on traveling with your pet, as some destinations may require additional time to prepare requirements and/or may be impossible at this time. Due to high volume, we are responding to all new requests in order of travel date.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

Pet Travel Coordinator

Personal Interests: I train Thai Boxing, Kali, and Jiu Jitsu. I enjoy Music, Reading, and video games when relaxing.

My first pet: I had a myriad of mice, hamsters, snakes, and lizards as a kid. My first dog was “Mozart” a very large King Shepherd with a love of destroying personal property. He lived a vibrant 15 years. We were the best of friends.

My current pets: I have an ancient Pekingese at home names “Petey” and a younger Bichon Mix names “Shadow”. I also occasionally take care of the best Pit Bull in the world name “Riley”.

Why I chose to work in this field: I’ve been in the vet field for many years and it’s hard for me to imagine working in an office that doesn’t have animals in it! I chose to work in global pet transportation because it’s a great challenge and the work is rewarding.

My Experience & Education: I’ve been working with Pender Veterinary Center for over a decade. Interacting with animals and making them feel calm and safe is something I’ve become very good at over the years. It’s helped me tremendously with caring for animals during the stress of moving to a new home.
