With snow storms and a pandemic Heather managed to get my cat from Atlanta to Dublin! She communicated so well with me and I couldn’t be more grateful for all of her help. I would highly recommend Continental Pet Relocation to anyone trying to get their pet across the ocean!

Alice Boyle March 1, 2021

Heather was easy to get in touch with. The process went smoothly and our three animals arrived safely and happily in Germany. We will recommend this company to our friends and use them to bring our fur babies back home.

Continental Pet helped me relocate my cat, Panther, to England Oct 2020 and they did a wonderful job. Kristi and Heather were flexible with our last minute bookings and all the paperwork changes that Covid-19 entailed. They helped me through each phase of the process and gave me really useful checklists far in advance for the vet visits and forms needed for travel. Panther was so cared for! And Kristi and Heather made themselves available at all times for texts and calls. Can't recommend them enough! I wanted the best for my little guy and know I got it using their services.


I am very thankful I picked Continental Pet Relocation to coordinate my Great Dane and Irish Wolfhound safe travel from USA to Europe. The team was on top of every detail concerning the move. The move overseas was already stressful but knowing my dogs travel was taken care of by the professionals at Continental Pet Relocation provided me a peace of mind. I highly recommend Continental Pet Relocation and will use them again.

Amy Smith January 27, 2021

I would highly recommend using Continental Pet Relocation. My husband and I will use them if we ever need to move our dog overseas again! Heather and Katie were very quick to respond and made the whole process very easy! We moved our Portuguese Water Dog from the US to Germany. The original departure date was canceled due to strikes for Lufthansa. Katie made sure we were updated and worked with us to get our pup out as soon as possible.

Shannon Krenz September 3, 2022

I was extremely nervous about shipping our 80 lbs lab to Germany, especially during the covid crisis with limited flights. Heather made the process easy with detailed instructions, and took care of everything. She is flexible as well which was great when my vets office took longer than anticipated for paperwork. She even updated me about her flight status and offered to help with process of picking her up in Germany. My dog was well taken care of at the boarding facility before her flight and was happy when she got off the plane.

Marlena Masdeu May 22, 2020

We cannot thank Kristi and Heather enough for getting our two dogs and cat shipped from North Carolina to Austria. They made everything super easy and they are so knowledgeable in the process of shipping pets. They replied to every question I had almost immediately. Kept us informed every step of the way. They really remove the stress out of what would have been a stressful situation. I highly recommend them and they’ll be my first call should we need to move again. Thanks so much Kristi and Heather. Best regards, David and Laura.

David Beachy January 18, 2021

Heather was amazingly responsive to all my inquiries when we shipped our Rhodesian Ridgeback back to the US and needed ground transportation from GA to NC. She kept us updated when our dog’s flight was detoured to Charlotte, and when she finally landed in Atlanta. Ground transportation was speedy, and our old dog was in great hands. We will definitely use them again.

J Loomis August 2, 2020

Spectacular service! I was extremely stressed throughout the whole process of shipping my Lab from the US to Germany but the staff at CPR practically took me by the hand made it all seem easy! The near daily communication and instructions were succinct and accurate, my questions were answered promptly and there was always a thorough follow-up as I completed each step of the process. A truly amazing service! Thank you!

Dennis Taylor October 13, 2019

I am genuinely grateful for Heather and Kristi at Continental Pet Relocation. They have gone above and beyond to get my fur babies from North Carolina to Okinawa, Japan. I never recommend doing things last minute; however, when our two pet shipper companies failed me and my family, Heather and Kristi were able to do the impossible with such little time. I cannot say thank you enough to them and the rest of their team. I completely trusted them, and I made the right choice! Thank you, Continental Pet Relocation, for all you’ve done for my family and me!

Anna Kallal October 6, 2022

We were moving from Germany to the US in the middle of the pandemic, needing to book flights right as the CDC announced their rabies ban and airlines stopped flying dogs. Heather was communicative, understanding, and so helpful. Her team was consistently professional. They were also just kind people, which goes such a long way for nervous pet parents hoping to ensure their baby gets to their destination safely. We are so grateful that we reached out to Continental.

Alicia Morrison August 25, 2021

Heather and Kristi were fantastic and so helpful when we relocated our small 20lb dog, Rexi, from Seattle to London, while personally and professionally handling lots of twists, turns and unexpected challenges with logistics. Couldn’t have imagined shipping her on our own, and so thankful for their help with everything. We’re now all settled in and exploring the UK! Thanks again and highest recommendation for those considering shipping a pet!
