Be a Travel Buddy

If you, or someone you know, is traveling from South Korea to Los Angeles or Chicago, we need people to serve as "travel buddies" for rescued dogs. With you as the passenger, we cost-effectively arrange all the logistics and you travel knowing you are bringing a dog to safety. It costs nothing to you.


Here is the process:​

  1. Most airlines allow a passenger to fly with two dogs or four puppies in two crates if under a certain weight and/or age. DoVE Project will provide necessary crates, water bottles and required health documents.  DoVE Project will pay all required fees.

  2. Several days prior to departure, you will inform the airline that you will be traveling with a dog.  We will inform you of the weight of the dog(s), crate size, age and breed.

  3. On the day of departure you will be met by the Korean rescue representative who will accompany you to the Quarantine Area.

  4. You will present your passport and flight information and the reps will have the necessary health and vaccination documentation for the dogs.

  5. The reps will then accompany you to the Check-In counter with the dogs where they will pay the baggage fees.  The rep will give you their original health documents to carry to the US.

  6. The dogs will then be transferred with your luggage to cargo.

Upon Arrival in the US:

  1. Complete the US Customs form indicating that you are carrying a live animal(s).

  2. After clearing customs and picking up your luggage, pick-up the dogs at the Over-Sized Baggage area and present the documents you received when checking in.

  3. The crates can then be loaded onto carts and pushed to the Arrival area where you and the dogs will receive an enthusiastic welcome from their new adoptive families and members of the DoVE team.

  4. And you will go on your way, with a smile on your face and a happy heart, knowing that you made a difference in the lives of these precious babies.
