Crispin the cat"Incredible Experiences: From the Deep South to the Even Deeper South"

Crispin's journey from Atlanta, GA to Canberra in Australia was a huge journey for a little cat.

The PetRelocation folks were incredibly helpful through the process. Australian quarantine regulations require months of preparation, and I couldn't have gone through it all without help.

They were also right there during the relocation process, with live updates and quick responses to emails and phone calls. Their support was really...

bailah"Incredible Experiences: Bailah's Trip Across the World"

Putting my dog in a crate underneath the plane and sending her to the other side of the world definitely produced a great amount of anxiety and fear. 

I right away began to feel more calm when working with Sarah, though. She provided different options for routes from the USA to China and gave clear details about the trip. 

My experience continued to be positive working with Tobi. I was a bit worried when we had to jump the hurdle of the...

My trip was delayed in Atlanta, which means it took me two full days to travel to Dublin, arriving a day LATE for Reagan and Dixie to be delivered, but Sarah even arranged for Reagan to get grain free...

Pet Travel Story: Lulu's Move to Australia

Friday, August 26, 2016 by PetRelocation.com Customer

"Incredible Experiences: Fantastic Service!"

Having a complicated pet move from the USA to Australia was very nerve-wracking, as Australia has very strict and complicated animal importing laws.


Linda (who specializes in Australian imports) was a godsend with this whole process. She was readily available all hours of the day and night and she kept in constant contact, updating me every step of the way of Lulu's move.

Lulu arrived into Australia very well and everything went smoothly with her release...

Belle was recently moved to London from Texas.

I had to leave her behind because she was too young to travel, so I ended up using PetRelocation to help me.

They really took care of her and also kept me up to date with everything. The best part of it all was knowing that she is safe and seeing her after three weeks.

Hi PetRelocation,

Potentially my family and I will be moving from Switzerland to Los Angeles in the next 3-4 months and are considering what to do with our cat. He has been with us for so long we would love to be able to bring him and I hoped this is something you could help with.

I did not want to mess anything up. I had to leave before Max, and PetRelocation helped with the quarantine process in my absence. It was great knowing that someone with the experience and knowledge to relocate pets was taking care of your pup and that he would soon be joining you...

Can Mixed Breed Dogs Travel to New Zealand?

Thursday, August 18, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Can I bring my dog to live with me in New Zealand? She is a boxer mix according to the animal shelter where I got her. We think she is a boxer bulldog mix, so would she be considered a hybrid species, which are not permitted?

I really want to move to New Zealand and would be devastated if I couldn't take her with me! She is microchipped and has all of her shots.




Hi Gigi,

Thanks for the question! Confusion can arise around the pet import requirements for New Zealand...
