Moving with a Big Family: 4 Cats and 2 Dogs Move to Ireland

There is so much love in a big family. Especially when that family includes lots of pets! However, if you're planning to move to another country it can be a challenge to arrange it all yourself. That's what Erin found when she started planning her retirement with her six pets. Here's what she had to say about her move! 

I could go on and on about the professionalism and warmth with which the PetRelocation team treated us. I moved 4 cats and 2 dogs from the Hudson Valley, New York to Ireland. My cats were scheduled to go one day and my dogs the next because of a heat travel ban.

Rebecca made miracles happen and got my dogs on the same flight as the cats! This was no small feat, as it meant getting space on the Lufthansa flight for an Irish wolfhound and his “small” 86-pound giant schnauzer buddy. I was amazed at everything the team managed to do for us! From getting the custom-built crate to JFK in time and transporting the two dogs from Saugerties to the airport a day early, to then coordinating pick-up at the Dublin airport and delivering to my door! I was impressed before all this happened, but Rebecca and her team really went above and beyond anything I could have expected, There are no words to express my gratitude.

Thanks, Erin! We're so happy we could help to keep this larger than life family together!
