Has anyone recently cargo shipped their dog/dogs to the states? United, Delta, or AA? Did you have to go thru IPATA? I was just quoted a price thru World Pet Travel of $3,160.00 for shipping 2 dogs, one way, from Belize to California! The shipper also said that Belize put into effect a tax on bringing in a dog, 60% of your travel ticket i.e., $1000 ticket will be $672.00 tax. Can't find any info on this at all. Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

Hello LouAnn.... WOW! These fees sound extreme... We have not shipped or traveled with our dogs in years.... We are well settled on the island and it cost less than $500 total to get them to Belize from California about 8 years ago..... However the SAGA Humane Society often ships adopted dogs to the States..... Check with them at this link https://www.facebook.com/SagaHumaneSociety/ Hope it helps....

Thanks Judyann. When we brought our dog down 9 years ago it was $250. I have talked to Katia and also sent an email to Mary at Saga, she is the one that handles all the shipping. I just can't wrap my head around $3,160!! Our ticket total for 2 people, one way was $880!! With 3 pieces of luggage each. Crazy.

Let us know how this ends up going for you.... Many of us would be curious to know what it costs to travel with our animals. It sure makes sense that people are feigning Service Animal Support if these are the new fees. We would be happy to pay for the seat next to us, just for our dogs, wish the airlines would get onboard with this idea (pun intended) wink

I contacted this site, since I thought the World Pet Travel was some sort of scam...https://www.actionpetexpress.com/ The owner wrote back to me and said the first thing was to cancel going thru United Airlines. He suggested American, since they don't demand you use IPATA shippers. Will do this tomorrow and let you know what happens.

Update...don't ship United. Delta use IPATA also for international travel. Use American Airlines. The cost on shipping the 2 dogs will be total $950, plus airfare to international airport and the cost of a Currier for the dogs. Relieved!
