Intradco Global Aids in Rescue Mission of 88 Dogs

Intradco Global is used to dealing with animals of all shapes and sizes, but on this occasion, a paw-fect mission was completed when they aided in the rehoming of 88 rescue dogs. The dogs were flown from Costa Rica to Canada where they would travel onwards to their new homes.

Intradco Global worked with Toronto-based rescue organization, Save Our Scruff, who are dedicated to saving dogs and finding them loving, permanent homes. This specific rescue mission was nicknamed “Costapawlooza” (a reference to the annual music festival, Lollapalooza), and it saw dogs from all over Costa Rica traveling from San Jose International Airport (SJO) to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ).

The dogs traveled safely and securely in an Embraer 120 Brasilia cargo aircraft for the flight, which was 8 hours in total plus a short fuel stop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Intradco Global Cargo Account Manager, Erica Resendes, traveled onboard with the dogs as an animal flight attendant, ensuring they were safe and happy and could receive any attention they needed during their journey.

Erica said, “Working on this project was an amazing heart-warming experience. It is so rewarding to know that Intradco Global has helped in this small way giving these sweet dogs a wonderful new life here in Canada.  A truly exceptional movement to be a part of!”

Upon their arrival in Toronto, half the dogs have been adopted to their forever homes, whilst the others are initially going to foster families waiting to join find their perfect forever home

Thanks to the hard work of Save Our Scruff and Intradco Global, they will all have wonderful owners for the rest of their lives.

Tom Lamb, Regional Manager North America at Intradco Global, explained, “Due to the lack of scheduled passenger flights caused by the covid pandemic, these essential dog rescue missions have turned to charter flights as an alternative solution. We worked closely with the airline, rescue charity and authorities to bring this project together and ensure the best outcome was achieved. Thankfully the dogs arrived safely into Toronto, to enjoy their new lives as Canadian citizens.”
