Shipping options for Puppies from Salmon Creek Cotons:

Of course, we recommend you personally pick up your new puppy to start the bonding process as early as possible. But for those who cannot do so, shipment by air may be an option for you. Our past preference has been with Continental Airlines using their wonderful PetSafe program. United Airlines has merged with Continental Airlines and has adopted Continental's PetSafe program for the shipment of animals. Please read below for more information.

Shipping with United Airlines:


Below is an excerpt off of United’s website:

United's PetSafe program will allow pets that travel as checked baggage or cargo to experience these safeguards, keeping them safe and their owners reassured: Dedicated 24-hour live animal desk (1-800-575-3335 or 1-832-235-1541)Confirmed booking prior to departureWeather conditions constantly monitored at all pointsThe ability to track and trace the animal from its origin to its destination Personal handling in climate-controlled vehicles for connections over United's hubs when the animal will be exposed to temperatures above 85°F (29.5°C) degrees for more than 45 minutesUnited recommends (but does not require) that senior dogs and cats (more than 7.5 years old) receive a more extensive health examination (i.e., liver and kidney screens).United will accept all animals (traveling as checked baggage or cargo) only at our cargo facilities or SPD/QuickPak counters or where these products are accepted at your local airport. Animals will no longer be accepted at passenger ticket counters, unless these counters are designated as SPD or QuickPak locations.
More info is available on United's web site here.
