My question isn't in regards to moving, but I've found a 4-year-old Shiba Inu in an animal shelter in California that I really want to adopt. The problem is that I can't get down there: is there any way I could have him shipped to me? Is this something that you guys do?

Pets' Names: Lucy, Oscar, & Winston
From: Glendale, California, USA
To: Brussels, Belgium
We moved to Brussels, Belgium from Southern California in October of 2014. The most difficult aspect of the entire process was figuring out how to get our three animals safely transported. None of the animals were used to traveling, nor were they used to being in crates, but PetRelocation took all the craziness out of our hands.
They aided us in figuring out what papers to have ready and...Read More

I have never had a dog flown before and I wonder if there are calming medicines that are administered?
