Monday, January 18, 2016 by Top Pet Travel Destinations

dogs in hawaiiThough it's relatively simple to bring pets into the United States from other countries and it's downright easy to go from one state to another, there is one exception that sometimes presents a challenge for pet travelers: Hawaii.

"Should I Drive or Fly My Pet Across The Country?"

Monday, December 21, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Friday, December 4, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

PierreMoving pets to Australia requires lots of time and planning no matter where you're starting your journey, and as we've discussed on our blog before, starting in a "non-approved" country means even more paperwork, legwork, and just plain work.
