Hundreds of pets die every year while flying on airlines across the nation. According to the law, pets are considered luggage.

Out of the major airlines based in the US, United Airlines has the highest rated "pet safe" program. However, last year their program made headlines when model Maggie Rizer lost her beloved pet during a flight.

Just days afterwards, Florida resident Michael Jarboe lost his Neopolitan Mastiff due to neglect on another United flight.

Now Janet is running a campaign on Facebook "United almost killed my greyhound". With fresh eyes, Michael Jarboe and others have received hundreds of thousands of shares on Facebook, and tens of thousands of comments.

Join Candi and Randy as they explore pet safety in the air.
