How many of these pets we see at the airport do you think are with their owners because they are moving?

not very many.

My bone to pick was with the idea that putting your pet in cargo was cruel. It might be disconcerting, but it was probably less cruel than dumping my pets with someone else for a couple years or forever.

My dogs made the trip fine on both ends .

I can understand why someone would not want to give up their pets but it most certainly is cruel. Rehoming them is not cruel, assuming the new home is a good one.

A ride in the cargo pit is no fun for a pet, that's for sure. But it's probably less stressful than the re-homing process, unless the new owner is somebody they already know well (ie pack member).

Depends on the breed. Greyhounds freak out and have no body fat to deal with temps outside a certain range. I’ve moved a lot of Greyhounds as a Pilots and Paws Pilot. I also have 4. I’d be okay with some breeds in cargo but not a Grey. Rehoming an ex racer is not typically stressful as GHs are used to being moved from place to place. We just moved 2 of them in a Cessna 310 from TX to ABQ.

Based on just a few things I've seen in my career I would *NEVER* ship a pet on an airline.
That being said, the longest move I've ever made with pets was just recently moving our cats 25 miles by car, so Idk what I'd do if we had to move them cross country.

UPS Ground with a bag of food in the box.

*in all seriousness.....if you put your animals on the same level as people, then you drive....even if itís cross country. Itís a minor inconvenience.
