Boomerang Pet Carrier has an in-house policy whereby we will not accept
puppies for carriage by airfreight who weigh less than 12 pounds and/or
are younger than 12 weeks. Puppies must be fully vaccinated against rabies
and the annual package of canine inoculations. The animal must also have
a clinical exam with the issuance of a health certificate from a registered,
accredited veterinarian within 10 days of dispatch. Many countries of
destination will treat the import of puppies shipped as cargo as commercial
shipments with a higher level of import health regulations rather than
personal pet movements. They may also apply duty to the invoiced value
of the animal.
Sadly, there is a group of nasty persons who advertise small breed puppies
free to good homes for payment of the shipping costs only. They are rampant
on Kijiji and the internet. Good news – these unscrupulous people do
not have custody of any animals. Bad news – they will take your money
and milk you for more. If you cannot reach the seller of the puppy by
phone and they will only accept Western Union payments, it is not a legitimate
pet shipper and you are being scammed. Check out the IPATA
website for more information.
All is well, and they are happy dogs. They were so happy when they met
my sister and my parents at the airport. My family cried when they picked
up the dogs, and so did the cargo people who were there when they handed
over the dogs. I am so happy that you helped us with everything. We could
not have done it without you!!!!
