Pet Travel From Lebanon to the United States

Monday, August 3, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
We are moving permanently from Beirut, Lebanon to Columbia, MO and we need to take our dog with us. I need to know if it is feasible and how much it will cost us.

Hi Lilian,
Thank you for your question, we'd be happy to help! First you'll want to take a look at the pet import requirements for the United States. This is one of the easier countries to bring pets -- essentially you just need proof of an updated rabies vaccine and an international health certificate.

Incredible Experiences: Hercules Moves to Texas!

Thursday, July 30, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

hercules"SJU to DFW"

The PetRelocation team was great.

Hercules, my golden retriever, is a tall dog and requires the biggest crate made. Unfortunately a lot of airlines won't take that size crate anymore and others only take it on certain aircraft types. I could not find a way to get my dog back to Dallas from Puerto Rico after spending a few years there.

The PetRelocation team found a way to get him back for me. They made the entire process very stress free and painless. The fact that PetRelocation has...

Pit Bull Travel to the United States from Dubai

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions


I would like to know what are the regulations for importing pets (specifically Pit Bulls) into the state of Nevada.

Thank you.



Hi Sonia,

Thank you for your question! As far as United States and Nevada import rules, there are no regulations against importing Pit Bulls. In fact, Nevada is one of a few states that has banned breed-specific legislation and in general the country is growing more Bully-friendly all the time.

However, you will need to check with the airline you're...

Incredible Experiences: Three Pets Travel Around the World

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

"Three Brave Pets Around the World!!!"

My name is Natasha and I was a GP in Brazil. I decided to move to Australia with my husband and my three lovely pets: two female shih tzu (Mel and Sophie) and one male cat (Pretinho).


Leaving them behind was never an option, so I decided that if I was really going to do this, I should do it properly. Migrating with pets from Brazil to Australia is definitely a difficult process to say the least (6-7 months in 3 different countries: Brazil for 5 months,...

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
I am relocating from Philadelphia to the UK and would like to know what I will need to do to get my animals home safely. I brought them both out here in 2010 and I would like to get them back as smoothly as possible.

Sid is a pug, which seems to be a breed not accepted by most airlines. I do not want to put them in any kind of quarantine. I would like the most direct route for them and to cause them the least amount of stress.

Hi Helena,

Q the cat"PetRelocation Went Above and Beyond to Move My Cat"

The lovely people at PetRelocation went above and beyond to help us move our cat, Q, from Washington, D.C. to Austin, TX.

We had a hard time locating an airline-approved kennel for her, and when Amazon's 1-day express shipping failed to deliver one the night before we were all getting on a plane to leave the city, Heather and Brooke worked after hours to make sure there would be something to transport Q in.

My husband and I didn't have to worry,...

Incredible Experiences: Calvin's Move to Switzerland

calvin"Calvin's First and Last Flight"

So I've had Calvin for eight years now, and I had to leave him behind already for one international move when we went to Australia for five years. It was heartbreaking saying goodbye to my little furry baby, and even more heartbreaking when we went home to visit every year.

He would go through his sassy stage and pretend like he forgot about me, then he'd start warming up to me, and a couple days later he wouldn't stop following me around the house and wouldn't...

Pet Travel Q&A: "Can My Dog Fly in the Cabin?"

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
I must have my dog Wesley traveling with me in the cabin, not in the hold. I need him to be with me, as I get panic attacks when flying and he helps enormously to calm me down. He is a very well behaved, non-aggressive dog, loved by everyone who knows him.
Hi Silver,
Thank you for your inquiry! Whether or not your dog flies in the cabin or cargo completely depends on the rules of the airline you fly with. Generally speaking, pets usually need to go in the cargo...

I just came to Paris last month and brought my cat with me. I did all the proper paperwork to get him here legally. I'm looking to go back to the US at the beginning of September. What do I need?

I still have all of his paperwork from bringing him over. Should I treat it as if he was never originally from the US? Thank you for your help.
