Incredible Experiences: Rosie's Move to the UK

Monday, November 16, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

"Rosie's UK Homecoming"

Rosie has been absolutely great since she arrived with my friend Vicki. I have photos of her playing and lots of her sleeping! I cannot wait to see her again on Wednesday.

The driver who delivered Rosie to Vicki said that Rosie was as quiet as could be in the van until he drove into our village. Then she jumped up and tried to look outside. How wonderful is that? I guess that even after a year away she could smell that she was home. 

Thank you and Meagan for your very...

Q&A: Understanding Australia Pet Quarantine

Thursday, October 8, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Dear PetRelocation,

I'm moving to Australia with my cat. I saw that there will be 180 days of quarantine that the cat can do in the country of origin, but does that mean I can have her at our house? Or does she have to be at a vet for 6 months?

Thanks,

Silvia

Monday, September 14, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Jackson"Jackson's Journey"

Once I accepted my current job offer, I became burdened with the task of moving halfway across the country.

Fortunately, the company that hired me supported pet transportation and used PetRelocation to do it.

I was skeptical at first since I had never used a service such as this before and because Jackson tends to be scared of so many different things, but after speaking with a representative from PetRelocation and doing a bit of my own research on the process, I felt...

The lovely people at PetRelocation went above and beyond to help us move our cat, Q, from Washington, D.C. to Austin, TX.
