The most stressful part about relocating from the US to the UK was moving my beloved two cats. I contacted Animal Land Pet Movers and was relieved they could move my cats, door to door! 

My pet move counsellor was Natalie and she was amazing! Natalie not only guided me through all of the official requirements, she helped me through several personal meltdowns! On the day of the move, Natalie kept me up to date with my cats every move. 

I can't thank her enough for her caring and sincere service. If you ever need to move your beloved pets, please put your trust in Animal Land Pet Movers!

Hi ,

My dad has Grizzly. He came through very relaxed and settled. He was he only pet on his flight, so that was probably a good thing, no other animals winding each other up.

I have to say, although he has flown before, the advice to drop him off and pick him up I think made a world of difference in it being a less stressful experience!

Thanks you and Barbara for all you work and support, one happy pooch one happy owner! I would highly recommend your services!!








it  was super professional and went above and beyond our expectations. She was always quick to address any questions and deliver docs via e-mail, even on weekends.

We never felt lost or insecure during the process of relocating our French Bulldog.

We would like to extend an immense amount of gratitude to the entire Animal Land Pet Movers team for getting our four legged, fur baby safely from New York to Hong Kong!

With the stress involved with moving our life half way around the world, they made all the paperwork, flight schedules and last minute vet checkups very easy to manage.

Beth was great and kept in constant communication with us to make sure everything was taken care of prior to little Zeppelin’s flight and that all of our concerns where met, before, during and after our relocation. Knowing that Zeppelin was in good hands allowed us to rest our minds while he was in transit. When he finally arrived at our doorstep in Hong Kong, we were all so excited to be reunited.

We are very happy to have our little guy with us in Hong Kong and we have Animal Land Pet Movers to thank for that!

As a testimony I would like to say that as this was the first time I have moved a dog overseas I was quite worried about what it would all entail and how Holly would cope but your company made it all so easy and were there for me every step of the way and ended in one happy dog arriving at her destination safe and sound.

With kind regards








I have to say, my experience with Animal Land Pet Movers was amazing and I'll definitely be using them for future moves!

My husband and I are both military and when we got tasked for reassignment to Hawaii, the most stressful part of the move was figuring out if we were going to be able to take our Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff) with us! This was not our first move, but first time moving with a dog, much less a dog weighing 106 lbs!!!

Animal Land Pet Movers was so helpful providing us itemized quotes and guiding us through the whole process step by step! Mastiffs have different shipping requirements with IATA and Hawaii has very strict rules on animal import and if you don't follow the steps correctly, your dog could end up in quarantine for 4 months!

Dana from Animal Land made sure we were in compliance with both agencies!! She stayed in touch with me from the day 1 quote, all the way through travel, right up until I was reunited with my baby! She even reached out to check on me during travel to make sure I didn’t have any concerns along the way.

I can't thank her enough and DEFINITELY recommend this company!!!







My husband and I recently imported our Chihuahua from the US to Saudi Arabia. We didn't even think this was a possibility until we got in contact with Animal Land Pet Movers.

Thanks to Dana's expert advice, patience and professionalism we were able to successfully be reunited with our baby, Jazmin! We can't thank her enough, it was a fabulous experience working with her!

Jazmin, Sabrina & Johannes







Hi ,

I've been waiting the longest time for three dogs to stay quietly within the proximity of my lens, but now I realize that is just about impossible (and that is why we have professionals to do that)...

Nevertheless, I just wanted you to know that Maya is extremely happy with her new pack; my daughter's Italian sheepdog + something else, (the white one) Tass, and Fluffy, her boyfriend's Black Lab. They are both elderly gentlemen, Tass is 10; he has some structural problems (arthritis mostly). Fluffy is 12, and in extremely good health except for his ears, and not just the selective part...

And now, Maya finally got to play the role of QUEEN - how much better can it get? The pictures show Tass and Maya kissing this morning.

Again, thank you for your professional qualmness and personal warmth, patience and undérstanding - I couldn't have done it without you!

Dear All,

Our beloved pets are now at home with us in Alexandra, New Zealand. We picked them up in Christchurch on Mothers Day {best pressie ever} then drove the 5 hours back home. A long day for all but it's all behind us now. BTW, it felt like they were being released from prison with all of the security gates and fencing!

Buster and Poppy were sooooooo excited to see us and Elvis has been so smoochy which isn't like him at all so we'll see how long that lasts.

I can not rate your service, attention to detail and compassion high enough. You understand how emotional this process is ( thanks for tolerating my occasional tears ) while still making sure all the boxes are ticked!

Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for helping in this whole process and for looking after our babies.






To our friends at Animal Land and Pet Movers,

We wanted to thank you for the attention and care afforded our pets, Diesel and Stella, during our move from Atlanta, Georgia to London. Our 2 boxers are 100% members of our family, and the thought of flying them was enough to put me into very serious worry mode. The team was responsive to my every concern and did wonders to alleviate my fears. More importantly, the Team's (specifically, Dana from the team) thorough nature in completing the necessary documentation, vet appointment, USDA visit, etc etc..... was outstanding and saved us on more than one occasion missing something critical.

The team member (Kelli) who picked my pets up from my home was kind and more than competent dealing with 2 big dogs, 2 giant cages, and all the papers I gave her (plus a few tears on mom's end while saying goodbye). We were communicated with at every step of the way, and upon arrival, our dogs were delivered to our doorstep in London happy and wagging. Big thanks to the team for taking outstanding care of my angels.

Using Animal land to send my golden retriever from Seattle to Shanghai China was a stress free experience - from detailed preparation prior to my dog's departure to updates with pictures of him along the way in every stop, they got a lot of experiences and set expectation with the pet owner with detailed instruction so there were no surprises. All the staff including Dana (US), Andie and local handler in China were dog lovers with personal care, instead of treating this just another business transaction.

Thank you Animal Land, and we will be contacting you in a few years when we are moving back to US again.

With a flight cancelled after two hours of sitting in the plane, it was 10pm our time (and 1am Dana's time) as she adeptly managed our situation into the wee hours of the morning. While we were frazzled and trying to rebook our own travel and overnight accommodations for our family, she had Max organized and off of the plane, back to be held for us to pick up without any problems at all. Before we woke up the next morning she had already rebooked his flight and prepared him for travel two days later.

Without Dana, this whole task would been IMPOSSIBLE for us to manage, but that night of quick work to keep our family and cat together made all the difference in the world.

If you are on the fence about whether or not to use a pet shipment company, we assure you that it is worth every single cent! Thanks again, Animal Land Pet Movers! Max is now happily with us, mostly found cozy on the couch overlooking the Thames!

Thanks again for everything! We'll be in touch in 2017!








Hi ,

Ed made it! He's wandering about trying to figure out this strange place called Hong Kong. Of course, this was after he spent some much needed cuddle time in my lap. Probably a good 45 minutes of purr time! He did not want to move.

The taxi ride was funny because he was very chatty while he enjoyed watching the big buildings go by. Almost as if he was telling us about his adventure and the last 3 weeks at mom's house. I think he'll settle down quickly, but it's really hard to get a good picture of him because he keeps pushing his head into the camera.

We are so beyond grateful for all of your help (and my mom's) with arranging Ed's trip! It put us at ease knowing that Animal Land Pet Movers has done this countless times before, and even worked with many other SCAD Hongkongers. George and Ping on this side were also super kind and kept us up to date with Ed's arrival status. Thank you for putting it all together — we seriously could not have done it without your experienced team.

Ed is quite the world traveler now too ;).








Hi ,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making it possible for Bonnie and Clyde to join us in Switzerland. We were extremely impressed with the professionalism of Animal Land and its employees. The constant flow of information and communication was much appreciated as was the quick responses to all my questions along the way.

As you know, Bonnie and Clyde both arrived safely. Clyde was a little "miffed" about the whole process but has forgiven us. He and Bonnie are both settling in well to their new Swiss life. The attached pictures show them in our new home.

I would happily recommend Animal Land to anyone looking to transport their pets.

Best regards,







Good afternoon Marc, I hope this email finds you well. My name is Bernardo Coronado-Guerra, and I recently moved from Savannah, GA to Hong Kong with my cat, Doris (late August, 2014). During this entire process, Ms. Elizabeth Roseberry, my assigned Personal Move Counselor was with me every step of the way. She was very professional, caring, understanding, effective and efficient. It was comforting to work with her knowing that she had Doris’ best interests as a priority. She always returned my calls, answered my emails, was in touch with the vet in Savannah, sent updates throughout Doris’s journey – the trip went smoothly and Doris is now a happy cat expat in Hong Kong. Thank you for having Ms. Roseberry on your staff, she truly is an asset to your company and I wish that every pet relocation owner had the same, outstanding experience Doris and I had. Although I’ve thanked her many times, please congratulate her on my behalf. I will not hesitate to recommend your company and Ms. Roseberry’s services to anyone who is relocating with a pet – please feel free to use me as a reference. (Actually, my friends, the Schreve’s will be relocating with their dog to HK early next year and I’ve let them know about you). Thank you again. Kind Regards, Bernardo. Bernardo Coronado-Guerra, Associate IIDA Director of Design and Community Relations SCAD Hong Kong






Dear Marc, I just want you to know how much we appreciated the great service your company provided from Atlanta to Johannesburg, South Africa, via Amsterdam. We were especially worried about our Rhodesian Ridgeback who has epilepsy. She did great! Beth let us know that Koko was doing well and received her medication in Amsterdam. We boarded all 3 dogs in Joburg with Duncan's kennel and the 3 were well cared for. Lola, the Mini Bull Terrier thought it was all one big party and the Border Collie was okay, too. Not one of the dogs got sick or had bowel problems and we have had them for 4 days and they are adjusting well. Like most people who use a pet relocation service, we think of our dogs as our children and while it was quadruple the price of our two plane tickets here, it was worth every penny! This is one place that we knew not to skimp on cost. From our initial contact with Sunni to our continued interaction with Beth, it was a great experience. Your company clearly knows the logistics of the business, but the hand-holding with anxious owners is the critical piece. Beth was patient and reassuring every time we spoke. A job well done and thank you! Warm regards, Lisa





Hi , So sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you. The internet here is horrible. I am going to try my best to attach and send pictures. But at least here is my testimonial: I highly recommend Petmovers for anyone requiring international pet travel. They are especially good at handling complex itineraries to remote locations. I have been lucky enough to have had them move my two dachshunds twice. The first time was in October of 2012 from San Diego to Mongolia. The second time was from Mongolia to Malawi in August of 2014. I researched how to manage these trips on my own and it was IMPOSSIBLE, not to mention incredibly anxiety provoking! Dana Fanning at Petmovers took all the worry and anxiety away. She made sure that my dogs had all the proper paper work to get in and out of the countries where they traveled. She also designed an itinerary that ensured the dogs were on pet friendly airlines and were closely monitored along the way. She kept me up dated during their transport so I always knew where they were and what was happening with them. I even got pictures when they were taken for a walk in Seoul! Despite all of Dana's excellent preparation I was a nervous wreck both times the pups traveled. Dana never got impatient with me. She gave me constant reassurances and was always available to me by email which was such a comfort. Initially when I contacted Petmovers I thought their rates were too high but after researching other companies I found that they either cost about the same or couldn't manage my complex itineraries in the first place. I chose Petmovers because they were prompt at getting back to me with the quote and all of the instructions for the move. Right away I felt confidence in Petmovers and they have never disappointed me. When it is time to move the pups again I'll be giving Dana a call. She and Petmovers are the ABSOLUTE BEST! Cheers.





Hi Elizabeth, I'm sorry that this is a few days belated, but thank you so much for the fantastic job you and your team did on transporting Domino & Krumpet, and coordinating their export paperwork. Everything went super smooth on the pickup at the Animal Reception Center. The updates on their travel day were especially appreciated as I was a bit apprehensive about them traveling. I won't hesitate to use your services again if needed, and will recommend your company to friends and family. We're looking forward to settling in Chiswick, West London, and having our dogs with us truly makes the UK feel like our new home. With Gratitude, Dan & Samantha P.S. The pic below was from our happy reunion at the Heathrow ARC on Thursday evening.





Good afternoon Beth, Wanted to say one last THANK YOU! From Chris, Lola and I. We are settling in just fine and surprisingly every single house on our block has a dog-- not joking, every house! So I think Lola will be just fine here in St. Lucia. This move from Washington, DC to St. Lucia, was one of the most stressful things I have ever done, and throwing our English Bulldog (piglet!) into the mix should've been the straw that broke the camel's back -- but it wasn't! You made it so easy and handled it with flawless professionalism and genuine care for me and my dog's wellbeing. You were available whenever I needed you and you walked me through every step, even when the vets and govt. agencies (no names!) were clueless and unhelpful. I still haven't gotten a call back from the Richmond office - LOL! Thank you for the last push to get Lola here and thank you for keeping me informed along the way. I loved when a vet would say, "Well you have to get the titer" or "You need to obtain the health certificate" and I replied with a confident, "Already done" or "Got it right here!" I was never caught off guard and towards the end I began to feel like a professional at this, I was always prepared! As I stated before, we're here in St. Lucia for school and will be returning in 2 years. We will without a doubt reach out to you and Animal Land Pet Movers for our move back. I've included a few pictures of Lola. I hope you are doing well, thank you again, we will be in touch in a couple years! All the best, Kali





Hi , Thank you so much for bringing Prince back home safely. Your services are really good. Already have a couple of people requesting your contact details to transport their pets to Indonesia too. Prince is healthy and happy. Best, Christina





Having travelled for nearly 24 hours, Bayley arrived safely at our home in Hong Kong and is surprisingly in good spirits.
Thank you so much for handling everything so professionally and for making the whole process seamless. It was definitely the best decision I've made to go with Animal Land Pet Movers after hearing so many horror pet relocation stories! I highly recommend Dana and her team to everyone!
Thanks again!






Sunni was my first contact with Animal Land Pet Movers. Sunni was so warm and friendly and so understanding of my concerns about moving my 11-year old Whippet from Southern California to the Caribbean. We checked with other pet relocation services and had the best feeling and the best results from Animal Land.
Dana was our "handler". I say "handler" because she calmed us down, organized our dog's itinerary, continued to calm us down, and helped us through a stressful move. She is extremely thorough, exceptionally organized and amazingly calming and professional. She understands and clearly communicates every detail of the requirements for the most difficult customs situations and provided to-do lists and checklists for us to guide us through the process.
We would highly recommend Animal Land Pet Movers!
Who doesn't want the best for their pet?
Best regards,
Susan Valentine
Frank Cannon

Hi ! Everything went really smoothly! Kelvin was amazing! So nice and caring for Buddy and me. I was so happy that I got to see Buddy shortly after we landed in Singapore. Kelvin went above and beyond! Thank you for everything! I couldn't have done it without you! You made the move so much easier for me and Buddy! I can't thank you enough. Regards, Amanda

Hi Dana, Thank you do much for all Pet movers did in making the transition from Mississippi to New Zealand go so smoothly for our sweet Misty. The personal caring shown to me from firstly Barbara, my 1st contact, then onto you is greatly appreciated. I was I guess like most anxious pet owners, not knowing how such a long trip and 2 weeks separation was going to effect my sweet girl. Your constant reassurance was very comforting. Being emailed her flight stops was fabulous. I kept track throughout her journey. She has arrived here in New Zealand, a very happy frisky little girl. She was sparkling clean and healthy. You actually wouldn't know she had taken such a big adventure. Once again thank you all so very much. Julie Smith and Misty.

Dana, Mandy just got here a couple minutes ago and she is in good spirits. Thank you so so so so so much for all that you have done. We are extremely happy with your services and please keep your phone nearby in two years. We are most likely returning to the U.S. and I don't think I can ever trust anyone other than you with her travel. Thank you so much again.





Beth, Wanted to let you know how their first night went, and how they've been so far on their first day. Would sum it up as brilliant! Cats have been exploring the house this morning and are now in daytime mode which is normal, everyone has eaten well, Brodie had walkies, the dogs have been playing with Uncle Andrew, and we're heading for their first ever beach walk later this afternoon. Boots spent a fair bit of last night practically sitting on my head rubbing and purring. They were all up there with me for most of the night. You have been outstanding, and Animal Land Pet Movers will be recommended by me to all and sundry. As I said at some point last night, getting the dogs and cats over has been the major issue for me in the move, and my relief and happiness at their not only safe arrival, but arrival in good spirits and health, can't be put into words. Will be back! All the very best, and with the greatest of thanks, Sheena






Dana, As with all dog caretakers who make the decision to take them to a destination that requires air travel, you worry a lot. Yes we worried, but in reality all was handled professionally by Pet Movers and there really no reason to worry. Thanks Dana, Rome and Jose. Pippa Lakeman and Jim Baumgartner





Dana, Thanks for taking such great care of Lucy. I usually don't trust her to anyone but I'm so happy that you took such good care of her. I expected her to arrive very traumatized but she arrived happy as can be. Thank you! Marina.

Hi Beth, I was very impressed by Animal Land's service delivery -- they provided a desireable mix of flawless execution of the end-to-end service, combined with depth of support and attention to detail during the whole process. Cricket departed Los Angeles, overnighted in Amsterdam and arrived in good shape at Johannesburg. Thank you Beth, and your team, for great customer service. I am also including a picture of Cricket. Regards, Andy





Hello Dana, She arrived safe and sound and is now exploring her new home and marking her territory. No problems at Saudi Cargo. Every one was very nice and helpful in loading her into the SUV taxi. She drew a crowd of about 30. She didn't bark at all and stayed very close to me. I cannot thank you enough for all of your help and the team effort of getting her here safe and sound. When we return to the US, I will be contacting you again. I will keep you posted on how she is adjusting. Thank you again. Mary Ann and Elizabeth





Hi Beth, Attached is a picture of the very special cargo you, and the Animal Land Petmovers team took such good care of for me. He arrived safely, looking well and in very good spirits. "Thank You". From the very first phone call to the last email your patience, understanding and care reassured me that I had made the best possible choice for my boy. I would have to say that I would highly recommend Animal Land for the relocation of your pet. I think my e-mail will reassure anyone that by using  your company I believe their pets are in the best hands. Many, Many Thanks!!! Louise & HugoX






Hola Dana from Puerto Rico!
Good morning! Sorry I didn't get back to you last night! I was exhausted and the boys were exhausted and they were crazy all at the same time. But it was so great to see them complete their first travels. Thank you so much for all you have done. This was the most stressful period of the move and the logistics you did to get these guys here was amazing! I would most definitely use your service again as it was worth every dime we paid. Most people question us paying thousands of dollars to move our pets, but we would pay it for our kids…. so why not our kids with 4 paws! I will keep you posted on how they are doing from time to time. You are now apart of the Derr family!
I can't say thank you enough!






Thanks for everything, Beth! Apologies for my overwhelming questions - you were a pleasure to work with! The pups are all bathed and hanging by the fire - pic attached! We will definitely be using you for the trip back to the US in a couple of years!
Many thanks again!





Dear Dana, Animal Land exceeded every expectation of my very first pet move.  They put my boy's security and comfort first and foremost, and reassured me with consistent up-to-date reports every step of his transport.  I never once felt worried about his safety and when we were finally reunited, he was so happy I don't think he was worried for a moment, either. If I ever have to transport my dog again, Animal Land will be the only call I ever make. Pic attached as well (which was taken only moments after he arrived).  Have a great weekend
