Traveling with Pets (MQ855)

Traveling with pets can be traumatic for both pets and their owners. Participants in this evening course will hear from experts in animal care experienced in shipping pets internationally.

Participant Feedback:

"Professionals who care about animals and wanted to make sure pet lovers could take their mascots with them in a safe and caring way."

"It was nice to hear a summary of the concerns with United Airline's policy and what American Foreign Service Association (AFSA) and other groups are doing. I hadn't understood some of the international concerns with cargo facilities and the shipping agent requirements."

"The presentation with photos of cargo areas was tremendously helpful in demystifying what goes on in cargo holds."
