    Question Shipping a pet?

    Advertisements
    Has anyone shipped a pet before? I cant bring my cats with me when i fly to the states b/c I will have my hands full with the baby but I want DH to send them to me. I am trying to figure out how to do that.

    One place online said they charge 800-1000 for shipping in the states!! I am hoping to find something a lot cheaper than that.

    I had my puppy shipped to me when I bought him. I had to pay about $200 but it was within the U.S. I picked him up at the airport. I know there is a business where people actually accompany your pet and fly with them but I'm not sure of the cost or what it's called. Goodluck!

    My sister shipped her dog to me in Indiana from Hawaii when they were PCSing (I dog-sat for a month while they dealt with the move and then picked her up). If I recall correctly, it ran her about $200-300.

    My lab was shipped at 8 weeks old (14 lbs) from CO to SC and it was less than $250. But that was in the states. Good Luck finding something affordable!

    Our dog cost us $400 to Guam and then $550 when we moved back. She flew Continental. I am sure it is cheaper not coming from overseas and I am guessing your cats are not 38lbs...LOL! Give Continental Cargo a call.
