Our preference is always to have dogs travel with passengers for safety and cost. If you are planning travel from Seoul, Shanghai, Beijing or Istanbul to LAX, you can literally help us save lives! Our rescue partners overseas meet travelers at the airport 2-hours prior to the flight departure with the dogs and all paperwork. They will help you get the dogs checked in for the flight and they handle booking the dog on your flight in advance. The only thing required of you is to share your itinerary, love dogs and a bit of help collecting the dogs at LAX. You would claim the dogs at LAX and bring them through customs.
SCGRR Volunteers will be waiting anxiously for your arrival with food, water, tips for any porters you might get to help and everything needed to welcome the dogs with a quick break before they are transported to our vet. We provide contact information for our lead on-site volunteer so if there are any questions along the way, they are there to make sure all goes smoothly. We also handle all the permits and paperwork.
