The Rules of Pets on Public Transportation

pets on public transportationIf you’ve noticed some creative pet owners lately on the subway, you’re not alone. In reaction to the October 2016 transit rule banning animals on the subway (except those confined in small travel kennels, service dogs, or those accompanying officers of the law), passengers took to social media documenting what constitutes a proper “container.”

Out of necessity, New Yorkers have to take their pets on public transportation – but that doesn’t mean it’s always permissible or easy.

Taking Your Pet to the Vet

We happily offer house calls to pets who require wellness exams and/or attention to illness or injury. If your pet needs certain tests or treatment, we’ll transport him or her back to Animal Kind.
