Animal Reception Centre
Animal Aircare Company Ltd. manage the Border Control Post (BCP) at London Gatwick Airport, which incorporates the Animal Reception Centre (ARC). Our Animal Welfare Officers are responsible for the safe and secure handling of all animals entrusted into our care whilst they are staying in their temporary airport accommodation.
At London Gatwick Airport we offer a temperature-controlled, safe and highly secure environment for the handling of animals travelling outbound and inbound, and for those in transit for an onward departure.
Our facilities include spacious dog kennels, catteries, isolation rooms for birds and reptiles, toilet areas, and pet kitchens. Our accommodation comprises individual, quiet, and temperature-controlled housing pens which fully provide for the needs of all the animals and family pets we care for. Ahead of their arrival each dog or cat is provided with fresh bedding.
