Rescue Transport Process and Pricing

Post by mliubkin » Tue Jun 01, 2021 2:08 pm

Hello,

I would like to understand the process for arranging a transport for a rescue dog from Seattle WA to Boston MA. Where can I find some information on what this process entails and any fees associated?

Thank you in advance!
-Maria

This distance is too far for what PNP pilots typically will fly, even for multiple leg trips.
I'd recommend looking into commercial airline transport.

@mikegreen Thank you for the response. The reason I posted here is because this dog is a standard poodle and is over 50 lbs. Therefore, he can only fly cargo on commercial airlines. This presents a real problem, as per his foster, he's suffering from severe anxiety since he was surrendered to the shelter.
