Our dogs arrived in the UK 3 weeks ago. Carmen from Pets Abroad assisted us with the process. The service we received... from Carmen was above and beyond. The pricing was competitive and Carmen put our minds at ease during a very very stressful time. (Covid-19 pandemic) There were no nasty surprises (financially or other), and we were kept in the loop every step of the way, we never had to follow up, Carmen contacted us! Communication was really important to us and we were not disappointed! We got follow up calls and messages even after our dogs arrived in the UK. It is refreshing to work with such a service orientated company! I would recommend Pets Abroad a million times over. 🐕🌟🐕🌟🐕🌟🐕🌟🐕🌟🐕🌟🐕🌟read more

Thank you so much to Vernon and Carmen at Pets Abroad for getting my 3 kitties safely from SA to Canada. The whole... process was really simple and I was made to feel a lot less stressed. Everything I was advised on was the case and I am beyond happy that I landed up going with Pets Abroad in the end. It makes the world of difference when you have animal loving people handling your beloved animals. Thank you again!read more

Thank you so much to Vernon at Pets Abroad ! 100% would recommend! He got my dog over to stay with my parents while we... wait for our passports and our bohemian shepherd, Titan, arrived safely last night. Everything from start to finish was done professionally and handled exceptionally well during covid19. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! He always put my mind at ease and made the process such a breeze, always going the extra mile. Honestly can't think of a better person to transport your pet for you if you are reading this. Thank you Vernon, my heart is bursting right now 🐶⚘read more

Pets Abroad found a solution for us when 6 other agencies said it would be IMPOSSIBLE. We had to move back to France on... a repatriation flight during the Covid lockdown in SA. We were told with 10 days notice that we had to move 2 months early. I posted on a Facebook page desperately looking for help and Tiffany PMd me. from there she managed to get my dogs ready and delivered within a week from SA to France. the price was also amazingly low compared to the other agencies that said it was impossible. I highly recommend Pets Abroad and Turkish Airlines for their no nonsense solutions driven approach. they moved out french Bulldogs during a pandemic with no problems whatsoeverread more

I can't recommend or Thank Vernon enough for everything he has done for me and my family. My precious Rusty boy... arrived safely in the UK on the 19th December 2019. A HUGE thank you to Vernon Van Pype from PETS ABROAD! Truly AMAZING people, company and service! Vernon's personal touch and assistance went far and beyond for us! Couldn't and wouldn't have got through any of this without him. He is the Best guy. The Best choice! Definitely the Best experience under the circumstances! And as luck would have it...the Best quote I received. I would highly recommend PETS ABROAD to anyone wanting to move their furbabies across the "pond". Thank you Vernon for putting up with me. I know I was a neurotic nightmare throughout this process! You were fantastic! You truly do handle crazy very very well!! You deserve a medal! 😂 My Rusty absolutely loved you!! I will always be indebted to you for everything you have done for us! Thank you just does not seem like enough! Thank you again. You truly are fantastic.read more

No matter how many questions I had or how many messages I sent, each one was answered with as much information as possible, definitely helping me keep calm while I was not with my baby girl! There wasnt one problem with the whole process and I am eternally grateful to Pets Abroad and Vernon!read more

He was super accommodating, helped us find solutions to last minute inconveniences and I felt like I had someone helping me that loved and cared for my doggie as much as I do.

In our experience Pets Abroad are one of the cheaper pet travel agencies, but most definitely the most thorough. Would use them again in a heartbeat.

When transporting animals the term " cargo" is mentioned. Our Jack Russell, Nestle, was more than cargo to Pets... Abroad. He was " precious cargo" . His needs became their needs. His welfare became the focus of their attention.A company that concerns itself with both the need of human and animal alike is rare. But Pets Abroad does just that. I would recommend this company when you need peace of mind when transporting your most valuable assets. And, in what seemed like a maze of rules, regulations and protocol....Vernon guided us through it all and, as the photos depict...no distance will separate man from his best friend. Thank you Vernon , thank you Pets Abroad,read more

Vernon from Pets Abroad was brilliant with answering my 101 questions and the only pet transport company to get... Skyye’s name correct from the beginning! They were very clear and asked for all her documents to be sent so they could check that all was in order. They gave us all the options of getting her to where she needed to be. Once she was in their care in JHB they kept me up to date and even sent pics. Once she left their JHB facilities they followed up with us as to if she had arrived safely etc. Due to time difference this was significantly after hours in SA! I never met Vernon personally but felt like we got personal service and that our special four legged family member was genuinely important to them! I had previously approached other transport companies and I can honestly say Pets Abroad was the only company I felt completely relaxed with! Timeous and correct and accurate info. Amazing service! Thank you for moving our Chihuahua, Skyye to the UK with us a lot less stressful! Would highly recommend them and I would without hesitation use them again! Thank you Vernon and Pets Abroad!read more

We moved to UK, bolt (our baby staffi) came to. SAA messed up big time and our boy was removed from the flight and left... in South Africa. Vernon came to the rescue and looked after him until he could get bolt on the next flight (a week later). He’s a real star. Best company to use if you need to ship animals.
