More than 800 cats and dogs from California animal shelters took off for Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Illinois and Wisconsin in the largest Holiday Pet Airlift the Wings of Rescue has ever undertaken. It took 22 private planes and more than 200 volunteers to get all the animals off the ground. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel)

Certified animal behavior consultant Steve Dale joined Lisa Dent (filling in for Bob Sirott) to talk about how pets travel on airlines. A video on TikTok went viral after it revealed how pets are loaded on planes. Lisa and Steve discussed traveling with your pets and how to make them more comfortable.
