A pup named Polaris had arrived to San Francisco with a traveler from an international destination

But the dog was abandoned at the airport when  the customer chose to continue traveling on without his animal

United Airlines worked to ensure the puppy completed necessary requirements to enter the United States, including a quarantine period

From the moment Polaris landed in airline care, the entire SFO United team cared for him 24/7

And after completing quarantine, the pup has found a forever home with United Airlines Captain William Dale

Airline hosted a festive adoption party at the airport to celebrate Polaris' adoption

The airline also donated $5,000 to support the San Francisco SPCA's mission.

Now Polaris will have a loving home with United Airlines Captain Dale and his family.
