I recently relocated my baby girl Miura, a timid little 1 year old cat, from South Africa to the UK. I was extremely... worried about the process and needed ALOT of reassurance that she will be okay. Pets Abroad was always available to answer all of my questions, they were flexible enough to cater to our specific needs and provided regular updates on her whereabouts and well being from the time she was picked up in SA to when we finally received her in London. Overall great service!read more

We are very grateful to Perts Abroad for getting our 2 miniature schnauzer's to us safely in New Zealand. Tiffany was... very patient with all our lengthy delays ( not related to Pets Abroad service) and the necessary correspondence back and forth. Pets Abroad kindly came out to re-measure our dogs to ensure the crate sizes were correct and even "upgraded" one of the crates so our big boy would be more comfortable. Pet immigration to NZ is not for the feint hearted and we are grateful to Pets Abroad for their expertise. I have no reservation in recommending them.read more

We had the best experience with Pets Abroad when we flew our 2 beloved furry family members (2 Siamese Cats) to Austin,... Texas from South Africa. We messaged Nicolie at all times of the day and she was amazing!! Honestly, the team made the process so much easier and were able to reduce the stress of our emigration by handling one of the biggest aspects of it entirely on our behalf. They literally made our lives easier, and did so in record time when we received last-minute notice that we had to book flights. I really wish they managed our flights as well, it was so pain-free! 😂Our babies had the best experience and I would not hesitate to recommend Pets Abroad to anyone.read more

Thank you to Derrick for delivering our crates and getting the floofs to the airport safely. Both you and Tiffany gave me reassurance that my little ones would be ok.

We recently used Pets Abroad to transport our 2 Daxies from Joburg to Dubai. I can only highly recommend them. Not only... were they the most cost efficient agent we could find, but Tiffany was always quick to respond to my constant emails and was always so informative and reassuring! One of our crates was broken and Derrick assisted with fixing it. They helped transport our 14 year old blind and deaf dog, and went the extra mile to ensure he was comfortable for the long flight, which was a BIG stress for me. So glad we chose Pets Abroad! A HUGE thank you to Tiffany for all the help and a stress free travel for our babies! ♥️read more

For those who prefer a brief summary, I am happy to report that our 5-year-old male Pekingese arrived safely after... being transported by Pets Abroad. We received outstanding service from their team, who answered all of our questions and demonstrated a genuine concern for the safety and comfort of our Broly. I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need.

For a more detailed account of our experience, I must say that the journey was quite remarkable. As pet owners, we understand the stress and uncertainty that can come with pet transportation, but Pets Abroad put all of our worries to rest. From the initial quote to the final delivery, Tiffany provided exceptional support, answering all of our questions, no matter how small. We received clear instructions on how to prepare Broly for travel to the Netherlands, and even though Broly had to leave a few months after us, Tiffany stayed in contact with us and our parents, guiding them through the necessary paperwork for his Health Certificate.
On the day of departure, Broly was picked up from our parents' home, and we were pleased to hear that he was transported in a spacious and high-quality crate that exceeded our expectations. When he arrived at our doorstep, Broly was calm, happy, and healthy, which is a testament to the exceptional care provided by Pets Abroad. We are incredibly grateful for Tiffany and her team's work and wish them continued success in their business. Thank you again!

I 100% recommend PetsAbroad!

I have now used 2 companies to move dogs and PetsAbroad was the easiest by far!...

They handled everything and had my fur babies on a flight within 2 weeks of contacting them! I did have my titre tests and permits beforehand which did make for a smooth process!

Tiffany was an absolute STAR she answered all of my questions and reassured us that our dogs would be 100% safe while traveling. We picked our babies up on wednesday and we are so happy to be reunited! I would recommend PetsAbroad 100000 times over!!

Pets Abroad are professional yet personal, knowledgeable yet caring and all round the BEST you can ask for!
I’m not... a “regular person moving” but rather a person with approximately 30 years experience in international logistics so whilst the one thing I have not moved is animals, I can easily tell if you know what you’re talking about... Tiffany and the Pets Abroad team definitely and immediately made me realize that they were 110% in charge of what should have been a complicated move! Due to Covid we (the humans) experienced many delays but once we finally arrived in UAE, Tiffany and Vernon effortlessly set to work on “Operation Buddy” They made moving a brachycephalic dog (Boston Terrier) to the Middle East look easier than someone moving a dog to Cape Town! Unbelievable! You guys ROCK! Wouldn’t even look at another company EVER!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart

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.

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.
