Prohibition on Flying Dogs Into U.S.?

Thought this would be the best place to ask if anyone has heard about this?

Date: Tue, 17 Feb 2009 18:14:15 -0800From: Lori Stewart
[email protected] COMSubject: [SETTERS-L] IMPORTANT: US stops accepting live
animals as cargo -- effective TODAY
To: [email protected] EASE.LSOFT. COM

While this isn't important to anyone who shows/breeds/ sells in the US only --
it's monumental for the rest of us.

Today, the US Gov't stopped accepting live animals as cargo from anyone other
than brokers and licensed shippers. This is a not an airline rule, it's a US
Federal cargo importation ruling. The new rules for cargo were announced a
month ago but was widely assumed that they did not apply to live animals. It
was only today that the airlines found out and started calling clients to tell
them their dogs could not fly.
This rule applies not only to flying to but ground transportation, too. (and
quite possibly handlers taking client dogs to shows!)

I don't have much info but it does not matter if your dog is booked on a flight
tomorrow ... it will not go!
This looks like the end of cross-border breeding and showing in the US and the
end of importing dogs fro other countries. Broker fees start at $300 and go up -
that's in addition to the cost of shipping the dog (which has doubled recently).

Please cross post. I will provide more information and links to the actual
rulings as I find them. The person in charge of pet handling for Continental
Airlines is already on the case
trying to get the rules relaxed for live animals from Canada but the rule
is firmly in place until it changes. Sadly, all Continental personal are in
Buffalo trying to deal with the situation there ... so this issue will not be
a priority in the near future.

Re: Prohibition on Flying Dogs Into U.S.?

already being discussed on another board:

no one has been able to find ANY credible information that this is even remotely true.

Re: Prohibition on Flying Dogs Into U.S.?

I've been googling but can't find anything.

I call BS. Here's the CDC site.

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dq/animal/index.htm

They govern importation of animals. If there was anything about this, it would be on there. If anyone finds anything on there, I humbly apologize for the BS comment.

Re: Prohibition on Flying Dogs Into U.S.?

Looking at the details, it looks the importation INTO the US. Gradlyn for quite some time has been recommending using a customs broker. We have been using Barthco for a few years (all our dogs clear somewhere else) and are VERY happy with them: Kerry and Lauren are great and pushy with the airlines.

But, this might affect people shipping dogs to other countries for breeding or training, unless they fly with the dogs.

No, that's why I posted it with a question mark and asked. Trying to find out if it's true.

Re: Prohibition on Flying Dogs Into U.S.?

The article was about importation into the US. See the CDC GOVERNMENT link that I posted. If there was something to this, I'm 99% sure it would be there. However, airlines are free to prohibit any kind of cargo they want privately.
