Congratulations to Oscar, who is now safe and sound in Hong Kong after relocating from San Diego! Read his owner's note and why it's important to have professionals by your side when moving your pet.
My wife and I were both already in Hong Kong for our jobs and opted to leave our 50lb Chocolate lab, Oscar, with family until we got settled.
We did quite a bit of research on pet services and it was evident from the start that PetRelocation really cared about your pet. Truly door-to-door service -- they arrange everything from permits to ground transportation on both ends, pet hotels, airfare and all the vet paperwork.
It paid huge benefits when Oscar arrived in Hong Kong because the airline lost his paperwork somewhere along the way. So he had no records showing his rabies or other vaccinations, import permit, nothing. Because the service picks up so many animals from the airport, the customs/immigration folks let him go.
If we were there trying to make that happen, I am not sure what the outcome would have been. All in all, it was a great experience and we were kept in the loop every step of the way with multiple updates that really gave us the peace of mind that everything was being handled well.
We will definitely be using them for our return trip...whenever that is.
