Our ALMA Experience - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - We recently volunteered to chaperone a dog that had been cared for by ALMA Humanitaria in Los Barilles BCS to Portland OR near our home. The experience was very gratifying and extremely simple. We were met by the ALMA representatives at the airport in San Jose del Cabo and introduced to our traveling companion. All flight arrangements had already been completed and all we had to do was check in with our new friend. The ALMA representatives stayed with the dog so she could be free right up till boarding. We didn't need to do anything. Our concern was claiming her in San Francisco at international arrivals and rechecking her at domestic. Our concerns were unfounded. She was waiting when we went to baggage claim and they had hundreds of free carts to move her crate.
We simply rolled her to the check in point and they waved us right through. There was very little involved. Next we simply rolled our luggage and the crate to Alaska check in which was very close. We checked our bags, and since we had some time until our next flight, we took Alegra out of her crate and gave her a good walk around the airport. She met many new friends and was very well behaved. When it was time to go to our gate, we simply checked her in with Alaska and they took care of the rest. When we got to Portland the rescue representative was waiting for us and picked up our new friend at baggage claim. It couldn't have been easier. We would highly recommend others to participate. This beautiful dog was in a new home four days after arriving in Portland. It feels great to be part of that!
ALMA members and volunteers are doing a great thing, and you're doing it very well. We can't think of a single thing that could make this easier. We will be sure to contact you prior to any future trips down south and we have already suggested this to friends who visit your area. Thanks again and good luck in your future efforts for our four legged friends. - John & Gwenda Bredstrand, Vancouver WA
