I've seen quite a few examples of moving pets from the U.S. to international locations, but I was wondering if you assist with shipping from outside the U.S. back into the country?
We won't be moving for a few years, but I've been hearing nightmares about shipping pets—most people end up giving them to new families!
Thanks for reaching out! We're definitely interested in helping people figure out their move options so that they don't have to leave a pet behind!
We often move pets into the United States from other countries (as well as between non-US countries), and we'd be happy to discuss your move with you. To start, you can take a look at this overview of the pet import requirements for the United States. This is a pretty straightforward country when it comes to importing pets; essentially you'll need a vet health certificate stating the cat is healthy and fit to fly.
You'll also need to find out what the additional airline requirements are, if any (we recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline and making sure your cat is as crate-trained as possible).
If you think you'd like some help arranging your cat's relocation, please contact us for a consultation. Finally, in order to assuage your fears a little bit regarding the safety of pet travel, please read over these frequently asked pet travel questions as well as our recent client pet travel experiences.
Hope this helps, and we hope to hear from you soon!
