Hi PetRelocation,

Traveling to New Zealand would be a very long flight for my dog and I'm worried it would negatively impact her.

Thanks,

Anne

"Exploring the New Place!"

The relocation took a long time. I started talking to PetRelocation as soon as it was possible. They were amazing! They provided loads of reassurance and advice and were ready to go as soon as we had dates confirmed.

Jack & Ivy

The door-to-door service meant that our stress was minimized and we received loads of updates on the cats and how they were doing.

The cats have settled so well and are enjoying exploring their new home.

Incredible Experiences: Bailey & Nellie's Move to Utah

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.
