Caree, by 4pets, is the new, revolutionary transport system for small dogs and cats. We designed the crate specifically for the passenger area of the car.

We chose a design and construction that allows fitting the crate perfectly in any car seat. Besides the comfort and high-quality materials, Caree stands out for its safety. The crate is easily and securely fastened either via the safety belt or the ISOFIX-compatible quick-lock mechanism.  This product was subjected to the strictest tests by the official testing institute TÜV Süd in Germany and meets the crash requirements for dogs and cats up to 8 kg in vehicles.
