Incredible Experiences: A Family Cat's Relocation From Puerto Rico

Thursday, June 23, 2016 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Andy"Andy's Move to Indiana From Puerto Rico"

Catie was great, and so was Penney. I had to change my ticket a few times and I felt bad about giving her more work to do, but Penney was very gracious and understanding. 

Everyone treated Andy (my cat) with respect and understanding, and like he was their own. Everyone involved in his transfer (pick up, drop off) was so nice. 

I would use PetRelocation again in a heartbeat, no one else. 

Thank you!!

I recently (last week) completed a successful relocation To Redmond, Washington (Microsoft offices). I was working with Sandhya Ganesha, who managed my dog’s (Keri, 13 years old) move from Israel to Seattle.

Sandhya was amazing, super organized and always available – especially during the move itself.

Out of all service providers offered by Microsoft (moving, destination services, etc.) She was by far the best one.

Which airline should I use to fly my dogs across the country?
