Monthly Spotlight

When it comes to relocating pets, every detail matters. Julia faced the challenge of moving her two beloved cats, Lusia and Maya, from Vancouver to Poland. By entrusting our team of experts, she could cross this daunting task off her to-do list, knowing that her feline companions were in the best hands.

From preparation to arrival, our team member kept Julia updated with frequent emails, photos, and a tracking link to monitor the cats’ journey. “I was always getting very fast responses to my emails with questions or concerns, which reassured me even more that my cats were safe,” she said.

Throughout their travels, Lusia and Maya received the best possible care. They were accommodated in spacious kennels and comfortable pet hotels, complete with food, water, beds, and litter boxes. Our team ensured that every need was met, making the long journey as comfortable as possible.

The cats arrived in Poland happy and healthy, ready to explore their new home.

“If you are thinking of travelling with your pet then I would definitely recommend this company as they are professional, reliable and very kind to animals.”

We understand the importance of reuniting pets with their families. We’re dedicated to making every relocation a success, no matter the distance or complexity. With our expert care, you can trust that your pets are in good hands.

Phenomenal service, I used their service recently to move my cat from Canada to Egypt and loved the service. They provided guidance on all the required documentation, followed up regularly to ensure everything is going well, once the documents were in order they made all the arrangements and picked up my cat. They took good care of her before the flight and gave regular daily updates with pictures. Their partner in Egypt was amazing as well giving hourly and sometimes sooner updates after her arrival and every step until my cat made it out of the airport and they delivered her home. Door-to-door service, worth every penny and highly recommended.

I would like to thank Worldwide Animal Travel for organizing a trip for my two cats from Canada to Poland! I was very stressed and scared as any pet owner would be but Monica was very supportive. Documents were correctly prepared, I was being updated frequently about my cats and I was provided with multiple photos which helped me deal with the stress. Cats received excellent care. Food, water, bed and litter box were provided during their stay at the pet hotel in Vancouver and Frankfurt. Cats were traveling in spacious kennels to maximize their comfort during their long journey. I was always getting very fast responses to my emails with questions or concerns which reassured me even more that my cats are safe. I was given a tracking link which allowed me to monitor the whole journey. Cats arrived to their new home in excellent condition and ready to explore it. I’m forever grateful to everyone who was involved in this process as thanks to you my babies reached their destination unharmed and happy! ❤️ If you are thinking of traveling with your pet then I would definitely recommend this company as they are professional, reliable and very kind to animals!! 😊

WWAF assisted me in the relocation of my dog from Canada to the UK. The Toronto team were fantastic! They provided comprehensive step-by-step guidance from quotation through to the day of travel. They provided an in-person sizing to ensure my dog would have the correct sized crate, and allowed me to take it home so that my dog could become familiar with it in the days prior to travel. All personnel I meet were very professional and clearly prioritised my pet's care. I highly recommend WWAF!

We are over the moon impressed by the service and care that WWAT gave us and our 90 pound pooch. The whole process of explaining everything to getting all the paper work together, including working with our vet, and from pick up at our door on Vancouver Island, Canada to delivery to our door at our new place in Costa Rica. The whole process was unbelievably seamless. We received regular updates and pictures during Gunner's trip, and he was always full of smiles. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs to move their pets. A special thank you to Lisa, who took the time to answer all of our questions. You made this a breeze! Thank you! Here's a picture of Gunner enjoying his retirement on his beach. Pura Vida!

My cat arrived safe and happy after a long trip from Toronto to Bangkok. It was a great experience throughout the whole process, the staff are extremely professional and detail-oriented. I got frequent, prompt updates along the way. My cat must have been treated well and had a comfortable journey because he now sleeps in the kennel that he traveled in! I’d highly recommend working with Worldwide Animal Travel.
