Pet Escorts

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
If you or someone you know is travelling from Cairo soon, please have them contact EMRO. There are no extra expenses to the escort for this service (from the cat travelling), and they can be proud they made a big difference to a homeless Egyptian cat, helping give it the opportunity to go to a new home overseas! We will list the name of the escort on our website in appreciaiton for their help, and also list any website business they might have as free advertising for them, in thanks.

We have over two dozen cats awaiting a volunteer pet escort to accompany them to their new homes. To be sent unaccompanied is very expensive and a barrier to their adoption. Please consider helping a cat get to its new home today!! Thank you.

EMRO does all the paperwork, prepares the cat and cage, gets the escort in touch with the adopter, helps make the cat's travel arrangements, and secures the funds for the cat's travel from the adopter before travel. We deliver the cat(s) to the airport, and even pick up the pet escort if required, and get them all to their flight! We track the progress of the cat for pick up and follow up afterwards. All the pet escort has to do is give us some notice of their flight (a week or more preferably but we have done it with 3 days notice) and check the cat in under their name, and pick the cat up from customs on the other end of the flight, to pass over to the anxiously waiting adopter. The cat can travel in cabin or cargo

Due to many adopted cats awaiting their ride to their new home overseas, EMRO has decided to offer an honorarium of $50 to any pet escort travelling to the US. This will be paid by the adopter, and up front at the airport, when checking in the cat for travelling. This is an additional thanks for those making the effort to help a cat or two get to a new home in America. If you decide you prefer to make pet escorting a full volunteer gesture, you can return the money to the adopter, or return it to EMRO as a donation for other cats. Otherwise the money is our way of thanking you for your help, in addition to recognition for your efforts on our website.

If you would like to help EMRO in any way please contact us thru these contacts:

I can't help out except to send lots of {{{{prayers and vibes}}}} that your efforts are VERY successful! Do you have any pics of the cats that are awaiting transport? I have visited the EMRO site and there are such gorgeous cats! I'd love to see other TCS members add their "board magic" and see how far this can go

well thank you for your kind comments. There are 2 pages where you can view the cts that need pet escorts. They are listed below:

These cats are going to Europe:
http://www.emaurescue.org/europe.html

These cats are going to North America mainly if not all are going to the US:
http://www.emaurescue.org/usa.html

If you go about half way down the page you will see text that says "Adopted But Pending Pet Escorts". There you will see the cats that are ready for transport to there new homes. We have an estimated 12 or so cats that need a pet escort. Please let me know if you are interested.

i think that if the escort you get is traveling with other people, that those
other people can also bring back one animal per person up to whatever that
airlines limit is. so you might want to ask them that and that way possibly
get more than one cat at a time over here.

its amazing how important the cat was in egypt at one time and now its the
total opposite. such a shame.

i did a quick search and i found this.... is this you and your organization ?

i think its wonderful that you helping these sweeties. i was wondering
about the part of the article that talks about breeding. are most of the
cats you are bringing back going to be fixed before they are adopted out ?

and on the ones who are going to be bred who will be doing that ?
how many will be fixed vs bred ?

anyway, here is wishing you much luck with your rescue !!

first all thank you all for your kind words. Yes this art. is out org. That was the first BIG news company we were on. Since then we have been on many other TV, radio, and MANY mags and newspapers. As for the breeders. Unless under very special circumstances all cats will be spayed or nutured before they leave. If a breeder wants one of our unaltered cats then they have to contact us and we have to investigate there cattery license and other contacts for this person before we even think about sending an unaltered cat out.

I know someone who travels frequently between the middle East and Europe. I have asked if he might be willing to bring a cat with him. More than anyhting I am posting here so that I can find the details again! Best of luck to you, it is a good thing you are doing!

Thankyou 2dogmom. If you look at my first post here on this thread then you can read all about it. Also if it was not put here on this thread let me add that we both pick you up at any time of the day or night, and if you need a place to stay for a day or two then we also offer that as well for no cost (maybe only dinner if that ). We went to bed at 12:30 a.m. last night because an escort came in at 11:00 p.m. and we are now up at 4:30 a.m. that same morning to take her back to the airport with the 2 cats she will be taking.

ERMO...I just looked at the cats awaiting transport...some of them have been spayed/neutered, some haven't. Do the ones that are awaiting transport but haven't been spayed/neutered get the procedure done before they go?

Hello TNR1, the ones that have not been spayed or neutered are going to breeders that have been screened for 6 months for qualification. If they are not going to a breeder then yes before they leave EMRO they do get spayed/neutered. We just have to tight budget right now so unless we get the money from the adopter we have to keep the ones who need N/S in there own separate cage until we get some money to do that. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi EMRO,
It is not me, it is an ex-stepson who shuttle between the moddle east and Germany. Not sure how good his English is, but he speaks and writes Arabic fluently. He is not the hard-core animal lvoer that I am, but I have contacted him to ask if he might be willing to bring a cat back with him on one if his next trips. Your offer of a place to stay is very kind, I will take the liberty of passing it on. If/when he agrees I shall contact you via PM and you and he could work it out.
