Away’s new Pet Carrier earns Top Honors from Center for Pet Safety

The Center for Pet Safety, the 501(c)(3) research and consumer advocacy organization dedicated to consumer and companion animal safety, today awarded Away a 5 Star Crash Test Rating for their new Pet Carrier.

CPS is leading the first scientific approach to pet product safety and the Pet Travel Carrier Crash Test Protocol and Rating System provides essential guidelines for pet product manufacturers. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2015 Pet Carrier Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet travel carriers offer crash protection.

“We are very excited to see an innovative luggage brand take pet safety seriously,” stated Lindsey Wolko, Center for Pet Safety founder. “Away’s product quality and due diligence on their new Pet Carrier illustrate that companion animal safety is as important to their company as it is to the pet owner.”

Center for Pet Safety encourages manufacturers interested in participating in this rigorous testing and performance program to contact or call 800.324.3659.
