Being a flight volunteer saves lives!


We are always in need for flight volunteers travelling from Istanbul to the USA, Canada and Europe. Flight volunteers save lives and are essential to help our adopted cats and dogs make the journey to their new forever homes.

It's very easy to be a flight volunteer and you save lives by taking a rescued animal to their adoptive family. 

We have sent many cats and dogs to the UK, Europe, USA and Canada over years and are experienced in this area making it a very smooth process for everyone involved. We organise everything and guide you at every step of the journey

If you are interested in escorting of our rescue cats or dogs, please get in touch via our Contact page. 

Below is an outline of our flight volunteer process

We will book and confirm the dog on your flight, organize and provide all health and travel documents required. We cover all costs for the animals.


Our team will meet you at the departure airport with the pets to check-in. The pets will be taken to the check-in desk by the agent, along with your suitcases.


Upon arrival at the destination airport, an agent will meet you at baggage collection with the dogs. You will take the dogs through customs. A Help Street Cats and Dogs representative or the adopter will meet you at arrivals.
