Following the third major pet incident on United Airlines in merely a week, Adopt-a-Pet.com has announced an offer to the airline to aid in educating employees on implementing best practices in humane travel for companion animals.

The proposal comes on the heels of a turbulent week for pets flying the airline, with dogs in two separate incidents ending up in the wrong destination and one beloved family dog dying as the result of a flight attendant insisting his carrier be put in the overhead compartment.

“As a leader in consumer air transportation, United Airlines has a profound obligation to protect the families who choose to fly with them. As a leader in pet adoption and experts in animal welfare, Adopt-a-Pet.com is ready to extend its hand and help ensure companion animal family members are protected as well,” says David Meyer, CEO and Co-Founder of Adopt-a-Pet.com.

“Our team is standing by, ready to work with United Airlines – and any airline that wants to keep its four-legged travelers safe – to make their service the most sound, pet-friendly way to travel.”

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, since 2014 United Airlines has had more consumer complaints regarding the death of animals during air transportation than any other airline. That, Meyer says, should be cause for concern by travelers and a wake up call for the airline that the time to act is now.

Any airline flying companion animals is encouraged to contact Adopt-a-Pet.com for guidance on employing safer travel practices for pets.
