Worldwide Animal Travel (WAT)Awarded Industry Partner Award at IPATA International Conference 

Honolulu, Hawaii The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA), the world’s pet shipping experts, honored Bruno Mansueto of Worldwide Animal Travel with the Industry Partner Award at its 2022 International Conference.

IPATA’s Industry Partner Award honors a person, company or organization that contributes to the improvement of the industry, welfare, business and ability to serve customers.

“Bruno’s team at Worldwide Animal Travel made the impossible possible,” says Hazel Imrie, IPATA President. “During the pandemic, he realized the need for charter flights from Canada to Australia. Many clients and IPATA partners were able to profit from his efforts – in particular making sure that snub-nosed dogs were able to join their families in Australia.”

Mansueto is the founder of Worldwide Animal Travel, and with two locations in Vancouver and Toronto, the organization specializes in Canadian and international travel.


The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA) is celebrating its 44thAnniversary as the worldwide trade association for animal handlers, pet moving providers, kennel operators, veterinarians and others who are dedicated to the care and welfare of pets and animals during transport.
