How to Transport Cats to New Zealand

Thursday, May 26, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi There,

I've been searching the internet and it's all become a whirlwind at this point! But I was wondering what the process is and what it would take to bring our two cats from the United States to New Zealand.

I'm not sure what their breeds are, as they're typical house cats, one 10 lb (female) one 15 lb (male). But I was reading there is a decontamination process? And it seems like we'd be without them for a while when we make it to New Zealand.

Any help you can provide would be great! Thanks...

French Bulldog Travel to the United States

Wednesday, May 18, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetReloction,

Does anyone know a good airline that could ship French Bulldog and as checked in baggage? I only knew Delta, which is well reputed, but they no longer provide pet transport as checked in baggage.

My dog is quite big (weighing 44 lbs) so there's no way he would fit under the passenger seat. Plus, Delta no longer accepts pug-nosed dogs, which most bulldogs are. I don't know what is the reason behind this but I desperately need help finding an airline that could transport my pet.

Any...

Incredible Experiences: Bailey & Nellie's Move to Utah

Monday, March 28, 2016 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Bailey & Nellie"Excellent Care"

PetRelocation helped us arrange shipment of our two dogs during a complicated international move.

Our large Bernese, Bailey, was too big for any commercial crate on the market so they organized the construction of Bailey's own special crate.

Because the crate Bailey needed was too big for the cargo doors of any aircraft landing at our city's international airport, PetRelocation also lined up kenneling and road transport from Denver to Park City.

While probably complicated on their...

"Can a Stray Dog be Imported to the United States From Romania?"

Thursday, January 28, 2016 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
 
While volunteering in Romania, I fell in love with a young stray dog at an orphanage. She lives there and is occasionally fed scraps. Is there any way I can bring her back to the U.S.? I know someone who might help me get her vaccinated.

Challenges: Everything. It is an uphill battle because first they have to pick her up, get her vaccinated (I am now back in the United States in College), and then ship her here. I may be able to fly back to make sure they get the right dog,...
