American Airlines Cargo has helped dozens of rescue dogs find new homes for the holiday season by partnering with Dallas-based charity Society for Companion Animals.
Over two days 61 dogs flew to their new homes via 19 American Airlines flights travelling from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to New York LaGuardia Airport, Philadelphia International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport from the airline’s Priority Parcel Center at DFW.
DFW cargo services manager, Chuck O’Connell says: “Our team puts in a lot of effort to ensure these animals receive the same level of attention and care a human passenger would. And it’s all worth it knowing each will make it safely to a new home for the holidays.”
Society for Companion Animals president, Tawana Couch says: “The customer service and care that American Airlines Cargo has for our rescue dogs is heartwarming.”
“Every dog is treated exceedingly well and looked after during the process of travelling to his or her forever home. These rescue dogs really feel loved by the American Airlines Cargo workers who oversee their flights.”
