Bringing Pets Into the United States Requires Careful Planning

 

Relocating to the United States requires a lot of time and attention to detail. Obtaining visas, work permits, securing housing and transportation — in addition to packing and making travel arrangements — can be overwhelming. While many people understand that four-legged friends are often considered to be members of the family, bringing the family pets to the United States also requires a lot of planning and effort.

ERRICK ROAD STUDENT’S FUNDRAISER HELPS OUT LOCAL SPCA AND VETS

ERRICK ROAD STUDENT’S FUNDRAISER HELPS OUT LOCAL SPCA AND VETS

In a lot of ways Kyle Stoddard is a typical eight year old that enjoys his family, friends and classmates at Errick Road Elementary School in Niagara Wheatfield.  How he is extraordinary is his desire to help others less fortunate and servicemen and women.  His mother Jen says it started when Kyle was reading his bible.  “He wanted to know how he could help people.  We have friends who do charity work and that was really appealing to him.”
 
So last Christmas, Kyle asked his friends and family if they would donate toys, washcloths, towels and snacks to give to disabled veteran’s children and to the Cornerstone Manor, which is run by the Buffalo City Mission for women and children.  “It made me feel good to help them out,” he says.
