Monthly Spotlight

Hold onto your leashes, folks! We’ve got a tale to share about a Labrador who’s traded in his raincoat for a sunhat and his canine couch for a Costa Rican beach. 

Meet Gunner, the adventurous 9-year-old who embarked on a journey from Vancouver Island to the land of Pura Vida!

When Gunner’s family decided to take a leap of faith and move to Costa Rica, they knew they needed a team of experts to handle their furry sidekick’s relocation. That’s where we came in. 

Our resident pet whisperer, Lisa, stopped at nothing to care for Gunner and guide his family through the process. With her personalized touch, Lisa answered every question, provided reassuring updates, and worked closely with their vet, making Gunner’s humans feel like a part of his exciting adventure from start to finish.

From explaining the entire process to handling paperwork and providing door-to-door service, we made Gunner’s journey smooth and calm. His family received regular updates and photos, always sporting a happy smile, throughout his trip from Canada to Costa Rica.

“The whole process was unbelievably seamless.”

Now, Gunner chases waves and frolics in the Costa Rican sand, and we couldn’t be happier to have played a part in uniting him with his family in their new paradise.

We had a great experience using Worldwide Animal Travel and their partner Sky Pets when moving our two Labradors from Calgary to London Heathrow. The communication throughout was excellent from initial contact on all the requirements, through step by step support, to the day of depture and arrival. I have to give a special shout out to Monica our Coordinator and Jennifer who supported our check-in with Air Canada in Calgary. We felt very well supported and informed and that our pets well-being was a priority.

We had to take our Yorkshire Terrier to Spain and the whole process was scary and not something you want to take a chance at getting wrong. Monica clearly laid out the whole process for us so we could be sure we checked every box and that everything happened on schedule. I highly recommend Worldwide Animal Travel.

Worldwide animal travel was phenomenal for our relocation process! Our cats were very well looked after and arrived happy and healthy. When it is time for us to go back home, we will 100% use them again! Thank you so much!

I'd like to say thank you to the amazing team at worldwide animal travel! I moved from Germany back to Canada with my rottweiler Jack and they took amazing care. Any questions I had were answered quickly, happily and I was updated on everything whilst on the move. Highly recommend them and would use them again (if I ever travel with a large animal again ^^) Thank you Maike & Jack

I’ve recently moved overseas to Europe from Canada and I chose to go with worldwide animal travel to assist me in the transportation of my cat. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. I was very stressed out as there is plenty to do and consider when moving your pet overseas. I had the pleasure of being helped by Jacqueline who was very helpful and responsive in a fast manner as well. I highly recommend this company to anyone in the same situation. I can’t thank you enough for helping me get my baby here safe.

We hired WWAT to relocate our dog from Canada to Thailand. Monica, our export agent, was absolutely amazing during this process! She was very communicative and made the whole process much less stressful for us. We had an amazing experience with them and would 100% use their services again. Thanks again Monica!
