Monday, April 11, 2016 by PetRelocation.com Customer

cat"Our Relo Across the Pond."

We relocated with my husband's company, who also selected the pet relocaters, too. We wanted our cats, Cody and Dusty, to be relocated to England from America. Both are senior cats with dietary needs and health concerns.

From the moment that Jon got in touch with us, I felt a sense of comfort. After setting up the initial paperwork, I was then passed to Sarah who took us through the entire process. Everything was coordinated and I was kept informed throughout the...

Stirling"From London to San Francisco with our Calikitty"

After accepting a job in San Francisco, we began upheaving our lives for the impending move to America from the United Kingdom.

Our cat, Stirling, is very much part of our family so we knew there was no chance at all that that she could be left behind.

Rabies Vaccines for Cat Travel to the United States

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Our domestic cat will be traveling in the plane cabin with us from Hawai'i to Phoenix, AZ. He is 12 years old and has always lived indoors in a rabies free country/zone. I do not want to vaccinate him at this age for rabies. Does he require a rabies vaccination to enter Arizona from Hawai'i?

This is a purebred Abyssinian who was born in England and moved to Hawai'i without ever being quarantined or required to be vaccinated for rabies. Will he be held at the airport when we...

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 by Top Pet Travel Destinations

uk pet travel spotlight

Now that we've discussed the most important parts of pet travel to the UK in our UK Pet Travel Spotlight Series, hopefully the process seems a little less daunting and a lot more manageable.

To wrap up the series we'd like to share a few stories from pet owners who have already tackled the UK pet import process (and who have shown it can be done safely and without too much stress). It always helps to hear from someone who has done it before, so take some time to soak in this advice on various...

Incredible Experiences: Two Dachshunds Move to England

Tuesday, September 8, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

"PetRelocation takes the worry out of pet travel!"

I was, like most folks, a bit worried about taking our pets on a long haul flight. They had flown before, but were much younger (they were coming up to their 9th birthday when we flew).

We were in Austin for the winter, so they had already traveled over, but my husband and I still get a bit stressed before we travel with them. The folks at PetRelocation could not have done more to put us at ease.

We first brought Sam and Dave to meet the staff at...

Incredible Experiences: Maggy's Move to Paris

Monday, September 7, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Maggy in Paris"Bienvenue a Paris!"

I was presented with a great work opportunity to move from New England to Paris. Professionally it was a no brainer. Personally, it was a little riskier.

We have 3 kids under the age of 4, and Maggy, a 6-year-old Bernese who was our first baby and is now more of our third parent. :) However, the opportunity was one that we knew we had to jump on.

Of all of the logistics of our move, Maggy caused the biggest stress. She is older, never traveled particularly well and has...

Incredible Experiences: Daisy's Move from the US to the UK

daisy"Cheers to PetRelocation!"

When I found out I was moving to London, I immediately started looking into ways to get my sweet girl Daisy across the pond.

I researched several companies, but from the beginning, it was clear PetRelocation was different. I really appreciated the level of personal attention Daisy and I received from the day I made the first inquiry into the service. We dealt with the same person, which made me feel like nothing about Daisy's journey would fall through the cracks.

Incredible Experiences: "Flying Zebras!"

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

luna & lornaThe export of two zebra filly foals from California to England was dogged with issues, not least the lack of communication with the seller, so much so that the first attempt was aborted although I had paid in full for the foals.

I then waited another 13 months for two more to become available to try again. It was only when British Airways provided PetRelocation as a possible business to support me that things finally happened.

All the staff I dealt with made me feel that they were as engaged and...

Pet Travel to Australia: Bedding & Pet Crate Questions

Monday, May 4, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I've just learned that you can't have kitty litter inside the cat's travel crate during transportation. This concerns me greatly, as my cat has historically suffered from a urinary tract problem.

Are there exceptions? Are there absorbent fabrics that can be used as an alternative? Any suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
