  • Traveling with a pet on an airline in cargo - the best way to travel?

    We hear from LOTS of people who have to put their pets in cargo when they travel. Although it may sound risky, only 2 animals were lost last year when traveling in cargo. The airlines don't want their name on the list and many of them have pet programs to ease people's minds about their commitment to deliver your pet safely. Was your experience with your pet traveling in cargo a good one? What can you share to help people prepare for the experience?

    The Humane Society of the United States recommends that you do not transport your pet by air unless absolutely necessary. If you must transport your pet by air, your first decision is whether you can take your pet in the aircraft cabin with you, which is your best option. If your pet is a cat or small dog, some airlines will allow you to take the animal on board for an additional fee.

      I had a 6 month old beauceron puppy fly cargo....& the plane landed & I waited & everyone got their luggage & I waited.....FOUR HOURS later they brought in the pup who I immediately took out of the crate! Everyone was terrified...when we got to the glass doors two guys were carrying the crate I was walking the dog. The puppy saw his reflection as the door opened, and did a play bow & puppy yip! The two HUGE men threw the crate & ran off!

        I'll be shipping my cat in about a month, via airline cargo. I'm very nervous about my friend having to drop her off at the airport, to be flown all by herself, but there are no other options for us. I've heard mostly good things, and my cat is a tough little traveler, so I'll post on how well the airline took care of her. A friend of mine has already been through the process before, and says her cats were fine when they arrived, though their water had recently splashed onto them, so they were a little wet. It didn't smell strange at least... The airline they used was United.
