Name: Ammar & Guy
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...

Hi,

I've been researching individual airline guidelines for transporting dogs, and have found that the restricted breeds are often subtitled "brachycephalic or snub-nosed breeds," which I thought referred to dogs such as pugs and English Bulldogs. However, pure bred or any mixed breeds of Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers are listed in the...

Hello,

I am taking to someone about getting a monkey, and all she wants is a shipping fee that she says is $280. She said she would be using your services. I am just wanting to make sure this isn't a scam.

Thanks,

Hi Magan,

That is definitely a scam. Anytime someone you don't know is offering to give you a pet (especially a high-demand breed or exotic species) and only wants to charge you transportation...

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 by Pet Friendly Airports

Denver International Airport has recently opened a new facility that answers the need of busy travelers looking for a convenient, crate-free pet boarding option -- it's called Paradise 4 Paws and it's located at the airport. In our experience, pets often travel before or after their owners during a big relocation, and a place like this might make life easier when boarding is necessary for globetrotting pets.

This facility allows pet owners to drop their pets off right before they start their trip,...
