Freedom Pet Pass Shipping as Normal During Michigan Shutdown

Freedom Pet Pass Shipping All Orders

Update May 11:

On May 11, 2020, manufacturing operations were permitted to resume in Michigan. Our factory is operating at full capacity, and we are experiencing no delays in production or shipping. As usual, all orders are shipped same day or next, depending on the time of day received.

Our entire staff is healthy and excited to be able to work together again.


Update April 6:

We are still shipping orders normally. We have noticed a slowdown with the US Postal Service. We do not typically ship pet doors via USPS unless that option is specifically chosen. However, it may be worth considering the upgrade to UPS Ground shipping during checkout.

UPS has temporarily suspended their guaranteed delivery dates, but we have observed no significant delays in their deliveries.


Freedom Pet Pass is located in Michigan, and we are subject to the recent executive order that suspends normal business operations for non-essential businesses. To that end, our offices and production facility are closed until the order is rescinded or expires. Our employees are staying at home to comply with the governor’s order. Those who can work from home will be doing so.

We will continue to ship new orders per usual.

In order to maintain our minimum basic operations as allowed by the executive order, one member of the shipping department will come in each day to ensure orders are shipped. During the time the executive order is in effect, no more than one person is allowed at our facility, and they are only allowed there for the minimum time necessary to complete minimum basic operations.

Parcel carriers, like UPS, FedEx, and the US Postal Service are considered “critical infrastructure” and are running as normally as possible. As of March 24th, we have not experienced delays with deliveries. Packages are typically left at your door without interaction between the driver and homeowner so as to minimize potential exposure.

During this time, our customer service will remain fully responsive. Because our team is working remotely, you will get a faster response by emailing us or using our web contact form rather than calling our office. You can send your request to: questions@freedompetpass.com

We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as necessary.

Everyone here at Freedom Pet Pass hopes you and your pets are safe, healthy, and prosperous.

Feedom Pet Pass Recognized as Regions Best Small Business

From humble beginnings to a pat on the back, Freedom Pet Pass was recognized as the region’s best small business. All the success our company has had is centered on a passion to deliver the customer the absolute best sealing and most energy efficient pet door they have ever seen.

We truly want to wow the customer with respect to the quality and craftsmanship put into each dog door and cat door that we ship. This philosophy is working. We are proud to say we haven’t had a single return to date.

We are knocking on the doors of some major players in the home sealing arena and they are answering because we are the pet door energy experts prefer and recommend. Freedom Pet Pass pet doors are changing the game. We look forward to receiving our patent soon. You will be reading about that next. Thank you everyone who supports our energy efficient pet doors.

Algar, 52, whose company manufactures a line of pet doors under the name Freedom Pet Pass, will be recognized by the MSBTC as the Great Lakes Bay Region’s best small business for 2010.

“It’s the first-ever energy efficient pet door,” said Brad Algar, son of Brian, who is in charge of marketing and the company’s Web site.
