Free Flights for Katrina Animal Rescues

Free Flights for Katrina Animal Rescues

From another list... let's hope it's true. If so, get on it!!!!


If anyone is looking to foster or adopt a Katrina victim, this
information was on the Petfinder forum...contact any of the rescue
groups working in the area

PLEASE NOTE THAT CONTINENTAL IS ONLY OFFERING THIS FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS SO
IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET THESE HOMELESS ANIMALS SHIPPED TO FOSTER HOMES ACROSS
THE COUNTRY NOW! PLEASE CALL Continental Airlines at 1-800-575-3335 TO GET
THE DETAILS AND TO COORDINATE.


The number for animal transport is 800-575-3335. You have to wait through
the announcement and then you will get a live person! Continental IS
providing free transport to the pets of hurricane victums.
Here are some details:
Only offered on large jets - no small commuter planes for the animals
safety.
You must have a crate. It must be the appropriate size for the animal.
The shipper must have identification from LA, MS or AL.
If the person is traveling with the pet, it must be in under the seat crate,
she thought this applied to rescue flights from NO, but was not sure.
If the animal is traveling from a non-affected city (like Houston) a health
certificate is required. There are lots of resources for health certs in
these cities.
If the animal is traveling from an affected city (within LA, MS and AL) they
will allow a hand written note from a rescue organization stating that the
animal is healthy enough to travel.
Unfortunately the airport in Biloxi is still not open.
This service will only be available for another 3 to 5 days. They want to
limit this to a couple of weeks at the most - so, time is of the essence.
Call the number above for more info if you need transport
