Mission Impawsible - Bringing pets & families home

COVID-19 has been difficult for families across the world, many of whom have been separated from their support networks and loved ones. This is the case for even the small members of our families - our faithful pets. The goal of Mission Impawsible is to bring home families (including our furry friends) who have been left behind. 

Given the ongoing difficulties and constant changes, we created a volunteer group of Canadians and Americans to organize a chartered flight back for our pets and families to North America from China. During these difficult times, we need your help in this impawsible mission!

For many Canadian and American families living in China, COVID-19 airline cancellations have made it impossible for us to return home with our pets. Living in China has been a great adventure and one we will treasure forever. However, at this time, we want to return home to our families with our furry best friends and we simply have no options available as commercial flights continue to get cancelled. We’re returning home for a variety of reasons - some of us want to return to see family members who are unwell while others have lost loved ones and missed key life events. Some left China to visit family over the holiday only to now be separated from their furry family for months with no possible options to reunite.

Your generosity will help families and pet owners offset the costs of hiring a chartered trans-Pacific flight for a one-way flight from Shanghai, China to Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA. We greatly appreciate any financial assistance you can provide or any assistance in helping share our story.
