Taking Cats and Dogs to Australia

taking cats and dogs to australia

So you’re making the move to Australia and setting up a new life with your family. Of course that means you’re moving your pets too. Dogs and Cats make up the largest number of pets brought into Australia and the Aussies love their furry friends just as much as we do.

Pet travel to Australia can seem like a minefield; paperwork, vaccinations, fees; it’s our job to guide you through your pet relocation journey and ease the stresses for you and your cat or dog. Having relocated our first dog in the 1960s we have a wealth of experience and a trail of happy cats and dogs to tell the tale.

“A BIG Thank You to Mike and the Animal Airlines staff for assisting with Transfer of my puppy, from the UK to Australia!! He has arrived safely and is as happy as he was when he got on the plane!! Thank you for your time, you made this part absolutely effortless for me!! Great email response and no mucking around with paperwork!! Cheers Guys”

So how can we help you?

Well, we are proud to offer you a comprehensive service and rundown on taking your dog or cat to Australia. What sets us apart is that we guide you through the entire process, you remain in control of everything and we act as a trusty helping hand to lead the way.

We feel this is a very important distinction. We understand how much you love your cat or dog and don’t want to spend any more time away from them than is necessary – this is important for you but also for the emotional wellbeing of the animal.

“Ninja arrived this morning, she had a good flight and is in good spirit. Thanks again for your time and help with the importation of her.”

When taking your dog or cat to Australia they need to stay connected with you as much as possible so that when it comes to that time when you can’t be there (or aren’t allowed to be there) it helps to reduce their anxiety. Using our services you remain with your pet until such time as you check them in on the day of travel – that opportunity to hear a purr or go for a last tummy rub shouldn’t be missed by pet or owner.

“We are writing to say a massive thank you to all of you for helping to make our cats’ transition down under go as smoothly as possible. They arrived at quarantine yesterday and someone at the facility has sent us photos – they look great. I would particularly like to thank you for offering specialist advice based on your knowledge and experience about handling our nervous Russian Blues. They are extremely sensitive cats and we took on board your advice about driving them to Heathrow ourselves. Despite our apprehension it could not have gone much smoother.
We will have to wait a month to be reunited with them when we get them flown up to our new home in Brisbane but we are grateful that this huge hurdle has been well and truly straddled thanks to you guys!!! Best wishes for the future. We will highly recommend your services to friends and family.”
