Other Rescue Transport Options
PTTR can't accommodate every rescue request. Luckily, there are other options below.
“Delta Animal Rescue Transport” is a group of primarily active and retired Delta and other airline employees that transport rescued cats and dogs to their furever home within the 48 US. This is a completely volunteer service and is completed in the employees’ free time. We are NOT paid for our transport services!!
We have a list of most major and regional airlines below. If you wish to take advantage of one of your trips and you are willing to cover the fee to transport an animal we will help in coordinating and assisting saving an animal. Just think, with the trip you are already taking you can save one of these beautiful animals!
The owner/shelter/foster or rescue can assign a person to take the pet on all airlines listed below unless otherwise noted. Of the airlines that do ship pets as cargo most will not accept Brachycephalic or “short-nosed” dogs and cats of the following breeds: Dogs: Boston terrier, Boxer (all breeds), Bull dog (all breeds), Bull terrier, Brussels griffon, Chow chow, English toy spaniel, Japanese spaniel/Japanese chin, mastiff (all breeds), Pekingese, Pit bull (all breeds), Pug & mixes, Shih tzu, Staffordshire terrier.
