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.
The logistics of many international moves often require owners to travel separately from their pets. Our award-winning Pender Pet Retreat is here to help! Located just minutes from Dulles Airport, the Pender Pet Retreat aims to make your pets stay as comfortable as if they were at home with you. We are the only pet retreat in Fairfax County situated on 6 acres of woodland for your pet to enjoy. A Veterinarian is also on-site 5 days a week in case any medical concerns arise during your pets stay. Professionally trained caregivers are present 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you can rest easy that your pets are in good hands while they are awaiting their travel to you!
We also have boarding accommodations for exotic pets at Pender Exotics located in Fairfax. We know how challenging it can be to find a knowledgeable caretaker for exotic pets, but with over 18 years of experience the staff at our Exotics Centre know their stuff. Veterinarians are on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year should any emergencies arise. There are separate wards for boarding patients and weights are checked daily to ensure your pets are kept in the best of health during their stay.
