Australian pet owners who fled back to the country before the peak of the coronavirus pandemic have chartered a $100,000 dollar (70,000 dollars) flight to bring their stranded pets back from Canada.
A local media, on Monday Nine News reported that around 70 Dogs and Cat would be flown from Vancouver to Melbourne this week.
Several families are pitching in for the flight after being separated from their pets for nearly a year due to flight cancellations and animal quarantine complications.
Allan Smith told media News he would be paying over $17,000 dollars to bring back the family’s two dogs home.
He and his partner after living in Canada for 15 years returned to Australia in December and had expected to get their pets on flight in April.
The flight has been organised by Canadian company Worldwide Animal Travel and Australia’s Jetpets, Nine News reported.
