Pet Travel Question: Moving Exotic Pets to Canada

Name: Will
From: Fairbanks, Alaska, USA
To: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Pets: One bird, one Savannah Monitor

I have two pets that I would like to relocate with me as I change jobs. One is a Cockatiel and the other is a Savannah Monitor. I am hoping for a bit of direction with transporting my pets from the US to Canada during the winter season. Would like to know of specific companies that that provide the service, my requirements, approx costs, any concerns, etc.


Hi Will,

We'd be happy to help you sort this out. Transporting exotic pets can take a little more prep work, but we've moved all kinds of animals and have plenty of tips to share. Here's a discussion about shipping birds that should give you a few good ideas, and we also have a general guide for moving exotic pets. Luckily Canada isn't the strictest country around, but you will have to take into consideration travel receptacles, heat pads, etc.
