About Air Care Pets

AirCare Pets are the only 100% New Zealand owned international pet transport company.

The business is a family owned and operated.

We commenced NZ operations in 1998 in Auckland and have grown steadily since then to become  New Zealand’s foremost animal transport company.

In 2015 we commenced pet transporting services from Sydney Australia to provide a full service option for pet travel both directions across the Tasman. This service has proven very popular for pedigree breeding stock, working dogs, and families moving to a new country. The Sydney services are currently being expanded to include Sydney to UK, USA, and all the main Asian destinations.

Every member of the AirCare team from the pet travel consultants to the pickup drivers, and even the accounts staff are all animal lovers with the skills to care and respect your pets needs.

Our head office and New Zealand base is at Auckland International Airport. We have a proven range of agents and associates in all the main centres throughout NZ and Australia.

Company founder Shelley Walker is a well known breeder and exhibitor with her own pedigree dogs. Shelley is a specialist in those demanding jobs where the animals or the destinations require specialist knowledge and planning. She can be contacted in our Auckland office or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
