With Pet Relocation -There are many details and variables involved in shipping a pet. Whether you are shipping domestically or internationally, there are airline requirements and country regulations. Once you confirm you are relocating, it is best to reach out to a Pet Relocation Company right away for guidance and pricing. International moves, depending on the country of import, can require tests and vaccines well in advance,prior to relocating.

If you are moving your pet domestic, it’s best to prepare at least 2 weeks in advance. For international relocations, a minimum of 6 weeks is best and sometimes even longer depending on the final destination and country of import. Some countries require a quarantine period for vaccines and tests to be administered prior to entering the country.
Purchase the proper travel crate well in advance to allow for your pet to become acclimated and well adjusted to their crate when it comes time for their journey. It’s recommended to create a comfortable space for them inside the crate and feed/treat inside the crate with the door open.

What are the requirements to ship my pet ?
The safety and comfort of the traveling pet is our top concern. The airlines, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the customs authorities, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the governments of other countries all want pets to be transferred safely from place to place – and all these bodies have rules, regulations and restrictions aimed at ensuring the safety of the pet. These regulations include the crate specifications, import and export documents, blood tests and vaccines to name a few.
With so many organizations regulating pet transportation, the paperwork involved can be daunting. Our pet shipping experts know the requirements and have experience in shipping pets worldwide.
Pets attempted to be shipped without ALL of the required regulations set by each of these individual agencies are subject to being:
- Denied flying on their scheduled flight
