A flight buddy is a passenger who adds up to two dogs or cats onto their ticket and “escorts” them from one airport to another.
What does a “flight buddy” mean to the animal rescue community?
To put it simply… for a dog or cat, flight buddies are the deciding factor between a life on the streets (or a kennel in a shelter) and the security of a safe and loving home abroad. There are thousands of dumped animals in Bahrain living on scraps, starving, tortured or otherwise in danger on a daily basis.
The Bahrain Animal Rescue Centre (BARC) houses 370 dogs and 150 cats in a space that is overcrowded and with critical cases coming in weekly, and little to no adoptions, it has become overwhelming and we are in desperate need of help.
BARC works with several rescue organizations in Canada who are willing to help relocate and home our animals but, without Flight Buddies, this becomes virtually impossible. If you are flying to Canada on Lufthansa or KLM and are willing to be a 'Flight Buddy' then you would not only be offering your assistance to the animal rescue efforts in Bahrain but you would also be playing a critical role in rescuing two animals in need and transporting them to a loving home and family that awaits them.
