Monthly Spotlight: Getting Lucy to Oz

Some adventures have a few more side quests –  making them even more memorable!

Lucy’s journey to Australia comes to mind, as her travels coincided with the desert flood at her Dubai layover. Lucy handled the consequent flight delays, a 10-day quarantine in Melbourne, and the flight to Perth with grace. When she was reunited with her family, she was eager to settle in and adjust to her new home. Her family was eager to hug her and never let her go (we wouldn’t either). 

“We are very grateful and fortunate to have had you looking after our girl, you were all so caring (and very patient !!)” – Dan, Lara, Keri and Luce

We believe there is nothing more important than reuniting you with your pets, no matter what plot twist may arise during the journey. We deal with every obstacle with patience, care, and adaptability. When we plan for your loved one’s journey, we are also aware that something unanticipated may arise and we are equipped to handle it all. 

So, when you choose Worldwide Animal Travel for your pet’s relocation, you can trust that your loved one will be treated with the same dedication and care we gave Lucy during her epic adventure. We look forward to helping you reunite with your family members. Even in the face of detours!

Our dog is our child. My husband and I have no human kids. Bringing him across the pond to join us was a given. Worldwide Animal Travel assisted with the vet paperwork and travel details and made everything easy! Jacqueline and Ruthy were so helpful! Couldn’t have navigated international travel for our dog without their assistance.

I had a great experience with World Wide Animal Travel. The job they’ve done to travel my cat from Vancouver to Riyadh, exceeded my expectations. My cat was delivered, at my doorstep, safe and healthy.

I'm delighted to share that I had an exceptional experience with a highly trustworthy travel agent. Their professionalism and patience were truly commendable as they addressed all my inquiries thoroughly. Moreover, I'm thrilled to report that my pets—a cat and a dog—arrived safely in Hong Kong under their expert care. This travel agent's dedication to ensuring a smooth and secure journey for my pets sets them apart as a reliable and customer-focused service. If you are considering travel arrangements, I highly recommend reaching out to this travel agent for their outstanding services.

IMO… the truest form of recommendation is a repeat customer. We were introduced to Worldwide Animal Travel Services in 2021 by a retired Veterinarian friend. We did our own research and since then we have entrusted Worldwide Animal Travel with our Chocolate Lab for 3 return trips from Toronto, Canada to San Sebastián, Spain. Understandably, we were somewhat anxious the first two trips. They were very reassuring and handholding. They assisted us with all the paperwork necessary and stick handled any red tape. During every journey they have lived up to and delivered more than they have promised on every step of Stella’s travels. We trust them with our little gurl and we will continue to use their services for as long as we need.

Worldwide Animal Travel was so supportive throughout the process of getting my cat from Canada to the UK. They made sure every step was clear and reassured me my pet would be in good hands. Can't thank them enough. Definitely recommend them for your pet travel needs!

We used Worldwide Animal Travel to support us with moving our two shelties from Toronto to Calgary and everything went really well. It was a smooth process, we received a couple text updates with some photos along the way, and the dogs arrived safely and in great spirits. The door to door service was really great. More importantly, they took good care of the dogs, which is what really matters.

Here’s 5 star review for WWAT! I had a great and smooth experience with them scheduling and getting all travel informations ready for my boy Ziggy Ziggs to travel from Vancouver to Taiwan late December 2023. They were very communicative through out the whole process, between Ziggy’s travels and they were very reassuring with how Ziggy would be treated between travels. So I highly recommend their service for your pet Traveling out from Canada. Here are some attachments of his new home with me in Taiwan 🇹🇼. It was wonderful to reunite with my boy after a long two years. Thank you again!
