Editor's Notes

January 24, 2019:

While I tried to include a variety of sizes and price points for different needs, the safety and comfort of the birds during transport was the primary concern in evaluating these carriers. The Prevue Pet Products Travel is ranked first because its design allows it to be securely buckled into a car.
