Airline dog crate needed - Italy

I am currently living in Florence, Italy. I need to purchase an airline dog crate in order to transport my dog back to the US. I need a series 500 size for a large dog. I would like to purchase a new or used crate. Does anyone know where I can purchase one?

Our crates are called Petmate Furrari Crates (cheesy I know). We used them when we moved our dogs from Canada to the UK in 2007 and they were perfect.

Perhaps you could google it for Italy? I know they sell them online from the UK also...

Are you sure you need a 500 size? That's not large, that's huge. Not all planes will take a 500 size crate. The crate only needs to be large enough for the dog to stand up, turn around, and lie down. An oversized crate is not good for a dog; they feel more secure in a crate that is sized appropriately for them. What breed (or mix) is the dog in question?

I would ask at your local pet store, look at websites selling second hand stuff, maybe even ask the vet for suggestions.
Do make sure you get the right size though as CharlieCA suggests.
