This forum is for anyone to list an FBO they have worked with who are pet friendly to animal transport personnel and who have generously offered fuel discounts. If you have had a positive experience with a particular FBO, please give them "high fives" and list them here!
There is lots of good information here, but it can be hard to find an airport in a specific area. Is there any way we could organize this board into states or regions, and have people post their info there?

Good question Grant and thank you for volunteering too! The problem is the people join this forum at different dates and all the postings are set up by the phpBB software in that manner. Someone would need to manually come to this forum, search through every post and then list the FBO's by area. The search feature may help narrow it down some if the correct words are used, i.e. Aero Premier, etc.....
Happy to have a volunteer making the listing and we can post it, anyone??

We just completed a rescue from Pompano Air Park, FL., to Whitted (SPG) St. Petersburg Fl.
The FBO was outstanding and helped assist with our rescue in every way possible. They even gave us a V.I.P. jet fuel discount which was certainly appreciated. Thank you Mike, for making it a wonderful day for all involved!

Cattaraugus County-Olean (KOLE) in New York state --
This is a wonderful FBO with staff who really support rescues and PNP. They sent me advice ahead of time about parking and promised to let the shelter's car out on the tarmac to pick up the dogs. On my arrival the staff came out and directed us in to the ramp, helped with fuel filling and generally welcomed the dogs. They have food and drink inside the FBO and were as helpful as can be. A great place for Pilots and Paws!

I can understand what you are saying. I was in Afghanistan the time I enrolled. I am now back in the states and I have also found a great site for my phone. The app is AavGasNow It is like GasBuddy for aircraft.. (iphone) I love it.. For all those able to fly and take these animals to a better place.. Thank you.. I look forward to starting to do this soon..
I work and fly out of a pet friendly FBO
at KPGD in Punta Gorda, Fl. and would love to see more pets. The best way to explain a discount it to tell how much they took off per gal. Not to quote prices. Prices change daily. That can be checked at http://www.airnav.com
I know PGD updates anytime there is any change of fuel price.
