Those impacted by COVID-19 extends to our furry friends also, as interstate pet adoption has temporarily ceased due to unavoidable domestic flight cancellations.
Our heart goes out to those people affected, nationwide, as we can only hope that life for all Australians (our four-legged friends included!) returns to normal very soon.
In the meantime, here are a few pet transport companies you may wish to contact for more information on interstate transport or to arrange a quote.
PetRescue & Jetpets free flights program
Since 2007, PetRescue has partnered with Jetpets to ensure distance is no barrier to finding love - for both rescue pets and adopters across Australia.
By coordinating three free interstate flights per month with Jetpets and Virgin Cargo, PetRescue was able to help relocate homeless pets in urgent need of specialist/emergency surgery and treatment, specialist foster care, or even to move pets to new homes, or from places of low demand to places of higher demand.
By flying them to safety in the care of capable hands, we gave sick pets a better chance of recovery and all pets a better chance of finding a family to love for life.
