Military Times is reporting that United has updated its pet policy to allow service members to get their large animals home from Guam.
We posted earlier this week that service members were scrambling to figure out how to get animals over 150 pounds back to the mainland from Guam since United suspended large animal transports after one dog died in an overhead bin and several dogs were shipped to the wrong places.
Although United has projected its new policy will be unveiled on May 1st, that left many families hanging if they needed to move before that date. United recently put out a statement saying that an interim policy will allow an exception to its no-large-pets rule “for members of the military and their spouses, and State Department Foreign Service personnel and their spouses, who wish to travel with or ship their pets out of Guam between April 1 and April 30.”
Still no word on the lady in Japan who is seeking to transport her English Mastiff to Houston with her. Hopefully a solution can be found soon.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
