Ohhh, there's no place like home for the holidays! But what about those pets with no home to go to? Sad. Even though usually Pet Airways treats pampered pals meeting up with human families, they've partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to launch Operation Thanksgiving Day Pet Flight to Freedom.
Departing from Chicago's Midway Airport, the plane will be packed with pets relocating to the New York area, where they'll be made available for adoption — and, best yet, the entire planeload travels for free. The journey starts on Thanksgiving Day, where animals receive a yummy holiday meal and lots of love from volunteers at the Pet Lounge in Chicago. They'll sleep there at night and then board their rescue airlift on Friday morning. Safe and happy travels!
