Transport Information

ANIMAL TRANSPORTS

Our main mission is to provide animal transports by air or ground. 

Air transports are usually limited to 500 miles from Central NJ up or down the East Coast. (Maine to North Carolina)  If your transport requirements are outside of this range, we may still be able to assist you, so please don't hesitate to contact us.

Ground transports are usually limited to 8 hours total as of January 2022.  (This equates to 3 hours drive time each direction with 2 hours for animal pickup/exchange, breaks, and refueling.  If your transport needs exceed this range, we may still be able to assist. Please contact us.

 

THERE'S NEVER A FEE

Services are provided free of charge to animal rescues, shelters, wildlife centers, sanctuary's, and other non-profit or government-run animal organizations.

WHAT KIND OF ANIMALS DO WE TRANSPORT?

We will transport almost any animal that can be crated or contained and fits in the airplanes as long as it has all it's documentation.  Most often, we transport domestic animals such as dogs, cats, small animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, mice, hamsters, and even wildlife such as raccoons and other small animals. There are restrictions on wildlife crossing State lines, so please contact us first to assess your transport.

 

HOW MUCH CAN WE CARRY?

Air transport capacity is done by weight.  Our pilots use general aviation private airplanes that vary in size, so capacity fluctuates.  We can usually transport a maximum of 100-125lbs per transport. In addition to the animal's weight, each crate can weigh another 5-10lbs and should be accounted for.  There may be additional constraints caused by crate size and dimensions. We will determine what is needed for your transport when we conduct your transport assessment.
 

Ground transport capacity is usually done by quantity.  We will determine what is needed for your ground transport when we conduct your transport assessment. 

DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE

Code3 helps any animal, large and small, domestic or wild, wherever the need arises.  We also support rehab and release efforts for wildlife organizations.
