Sid is a pug, which seems to be a breed not accepted by most airlines. I do not want to put them in any kind of quarantine. I would like the most direct route for them and to cause them the least amount of stress.
We are really happy we used PetRelocation!
I can't imagine any way in which our move halfway around the world with three animals could have gone more smoothly.
We initially chose PetRelocation because of the wealth of information on the company website, and the wealth of knowledge of the first person I spoke to there.
PetRelocation immediately put my worries of traveling with three animals, including one senior giant Great Dane, at ease. In addition, they were willing to help arrange all of...Read More
Singapore, a diverse and modern global financial center, is a popular place for temporary and long term relocations for work and cultural adventure. This means that many pets are traveling to Singapore, too, as most families wouldn't dream of moving without their furry companions.
Moving pets to Singapore requires careful planning and is more easily carried out with the help of a pet travel expert. If you're considering a relocation to Singapore and have a pet who will be coming with you, start...Read More

The export of two zebra filly foals from California to England was dogged with issues, not least the lack of communication with the seller, so much so that the first attempt was aborted although I had paid in full for the foals.
I then waited another 13 months for two more to become available to try again. It was only when British Airways provided PetRelocation as a possible business to support me that things finally happened.
All the staff I dealt with made me feel that they were as engaged and...Read More

I need help. I have no idea where to begin in getting my cat to

I'm so confused! I want this to be as stress free as possible but it's not really working.
Thank you for your question -- most pet owners feel stressed out at the...Read More
