A flight volunteer is a person flying out of Incheon/Seoul international airport who is willing to escort a rescued dog to the US or Canada.
If you have booked tickets to travel with the following, please contact us, our adoption coordinator Madeline Warren is in charge: email@example.com
(only those with weight below 32 kg are allowed)
We need you! Most airlines allow a passenger to fly with two dogs(with an exception of Air Canada. AC allows one dog only) We pay the $200 extra baggage fee (fixed rate) per dog regardless crate size and weight if below 32 kg/65 pounds. We pay $400 which is double if the dogs weight is above 32 kg up to 45 kg. We can save a lot as much as US$1,000 on the flight costs as compared to Cargo. Flight volunteers must call and inform the airline in advance that you are travelling with two dogs. This is to secure the space in the live animal compartment of the aircraft in advance. Please call the airline and book the dogs if you are in touch with us as a flight volunteer. Please remember if you are travelling by Air Canada, only one dog is allowed.

When you apply for a flight volunteer, I need sometime to look for a foster or forever home to received the dog(s) at the airport of your destination. The arrangement may needs a couple of weeks.
We, with the dogs you are flying with meet you at the airport and take care of everything for you. You don’t have to pay anything or worry about anything! We need your full name and address/phone number in advance to do the quarantine papers ready and presence at the airport quarantine office for you to show your passport at the quarantine office. We can do the quarantine inspection procedure without you if you can provide us with a copy of your passport. We will have the dogs prepared in crates and have all the required health/vaccinations certificates. Then we go together and get the dogs checked in as extra baggage at airline counter, and we pay the extra baggage fee. Thank you for flying with the dogs. You are saving the dogs!
At Incheon/Seoul International Airport before getting on board.
Upon arriving at your destination, you see the dogs on the cart near baggage claim, just walk out of the gate and the adopter or foster home or pick up person/receiver of the dogs will meet you at the gate and take home the dog. That’s it! Please don’t forget to take a few photos. Thank you for flying with the dogs!
