United Airlines Partners American Humane; Plans to Resume PetSafe

United Airlines has announced that it will work with American Humane, the country's first national humane animal organization, to improve the well-being of all pets that travel on United.

American Humane has been working to improve the safety, welfare and well-being of the world's animals for more than 140 years.

United will also resume PetSafe, the carrier's program for cats and dogs that travel in the cargo compartment, later this summer.

"American Humane has long been known and respected for setting the gold standard of animal welfare," said Jan Krems, United's Vice President of Cargo. "We look forward to a long-term collaboration and appreciate their expertise in helping us further improve our service on an ongoing and continual basis. As we continue our review process to ensure that we are always doing what's right, we are committed to making significant improvements in our program and adhering to the best practices of animal comfort, well-being and travel on behalf of our customers and their pets."

Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Transporting pets introduces a variety of risks and when United approached us, we knew we had to take on the challenge of helping improve and ensure the health, safety and comfort of so many animals. United serves thousands of customers and their pets each day, and we saw it as our duty to come in as an independent, third party to help evaluate and further improve their PetSafe program and the in-cabin experience to ensure it offers one of the best in the industry."
