We would like to announce that, as of June 5, 2020, our Paws 4 Passengers teams will be back at the Airport and we couldn’t be more excited!! We are posting the “rules” of our teams coming back to the Airport and want all of our passengers to know that, while we are there to make travel less “ruff,” the safety of everyone is also our #1 concern. We will be practicing all of the social distancing and hand sanitizing procedures put into place for our State and, again, are so excited to get back to work!
