Please help the animals by doing your part: Crosspost this notice to-
1. Anyone you know who wants to help the animal victims here
2. Any animal rescue sites
3. All major TV/ radio networks
4. All rescue effort and public information sites.

PLEASE NOTE THAT CONTINENTAL IS ONLY OFFERING THIS FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS
SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET THESE HOMELESS ANIMALS SHIPPED TO FOSTER HOMES
ACROSS THE COUNTRY NOW! PLEASE CALL Continental Airlines at
1-800-575-3335 TO GET THE DETAILS AND TO COORDINATE.

I just put the word out on CL and asked if anyone knew of any airlines
doing this and someone just emailed me this info. Please email me if you
have any suggestions or can help coordinate getting these animlas to
safety. Thanks.

All,
I wanted to verify the information on Continental's free transports so I
called. The number for animal transport is 800-575-3335. You have to
wait through the announcement and then you will get a live person! The
one I spoke with was wonderful. Continental IS providing free transport
to the pets of hurricane victims.

Here is what she told me:
Only offered on large jets - no small commuter planes for the animals
safety.
You must have a crate. It must be the appropriate size for the animal.
The shipper must have identification from LA, MS or AL.
If the person is traveling with the pet, it must be in under the seat
crate, she thought this applied to rescue flights from NO, but was not
sure.
If the animal is traveling from a non-affected city (like Houston) a
health certificate is required. There are lots of resources for health
certs in these cities.
If the animal is traveling from an affected city (within LA, MS and AL)
they will allow a hand written note from a rescue organization stating
that the animal is healthy enough to travel.
Unfortunately the airport in Biloxi is still not open.

This service will only be available for another 3 to 5 days. They want
to limit this to a couple of weeks at the most - so, time is of the
essence.
Call the number above for more info if you need transport
