Mom works with Save A Sato and they fly doggys and sometimes kittys from Puerto Rico to CT, MA, FL and WA.
You'll need a hard carrier, airline approved. Put shredded newspapers on the bottom of the crate - in case of an accident it absorbs poops and pee. Put two water bowls on the inside of the crate, and fill them with ice cubes. You can actually fill them and freeze them in the bowls. They need to be tie on the door.
Also put a soft towel or blanket in the carrier to snuggle into. A small stuffed animal is also a comfort.
Tape a bag of cat food on top of the carrier, in case your flight is delayed. All health papers should be inside of a baggy, and also taped to the carrier. And of course - live animal stickers.
The take off is scary for critters, but once the plane levels off, everyone relaxes. Mom and Dad have done many airport pickups, and the pups sleep all the way to the shelter. It's about an hour ride from the airport.
My kitty cousins also flew from Puerto Rico and Mom and Dad picked them up. They were fine, and they flew a year ago January.
