United Bans Emotional Support Puppies and Kittens
As the trend toward restricting emotional support animals continues, United is the latest airline to make it harder for passengers to travel with pets. Last week, United announced that it will ban all emotional support cats and dogs under four months old. This follows the same decision by Delta last month, banning puppies and kittens under four months old. United’s other rule change also follows in Delta’s footsteps, banning all emotional support animals on flights longer than eight hours. The policy goes into effect immediately, beginning today.
