Reshmi & Arun, Sector: Muscat, Oman – BOM
Pet Name: Reshukutty Dog/Cat/Bird: Bird
As always Vinayak says never give up… Me and my husband are so much thankful to Vinayak Prabhu the man behind the success and the complete Furry Flyers team who we haven’t even seen once….
As it was a difficult and different assignment to Furry Flyers to bring our baby (Reshukutty) African Grey Parrot to India from Muscat, Oman where the laws, rules and process are entirely different and difficult…
This is first time that a Bird especially an African Grey Parrot which is listed in CITES II grade is flying out of Oman in complete history. All the complications, impossibilities challenges were all faced boldly with the strong support and timely guidance from Vinayak. As the times passes, more complications and obstacles were coming and whenever we were down and started to give up, Vinayak never allowed us to give away the hope… He said one step at a time… Be patient, Your baby will come to you… He had taken this as a challenge to bring our pet to India and as promised Vinayak had brought our baby to Indian soil smoothly without any complications.
The whole crucial day before travel till the completion, timely information and co-ordination with me In Muscat and husband in India and your team was highly appreciated… Timely follow up from the crate before leaving home, cargo, customs, boarding and take off were clearly co-ordinated and made sure that everything was on as planned... We were wondering how he haven’t slept the whole night (1.20 am flight at Muscat – 3.50 am India) and was up and ready with his team when I arrived at 5.40am in India.. Everything was ready to complete the customs and clearing my pet… In fact, Wildlife officer, customs everyone was waiting for the arrival of our parrot to clear as everything was already on place and ready to be cleared…
Words aren’t enough to express our love and gratitude towards Vinayak and the complete team… When we heard the story behind the start up of Furry Flyers, we understood the purpose of your life and ours as well… Only a very few are found in this world with sincerity, love and mostly humanity... That we saw in you… A million thanks to you and your team… Wish you all the very best to you, family and team… When the loved pets reaches safely to their pet parents, the love and happiness can be seen as tears, that’s the best feeling and that’s the blessing you will be taking ahead!!!
We definitely re-commend you and Furry Flyers to everyone in need without a second thought… Always keep up the great work with love, compassion and humanity.…
I had a rather difficult assignment for Furry Flyers – I needed to transfer my pet bird Peter (who is an African Grey Parrot) from Dubai where I was then residing to Mumbai where I was returning to. This was in 2015 when pet bird imports into India were at a virtual standstill because of the numerous cumbersome formalities and conditions laid down by various Government agencies.
I checked out many agencies and websites. Everywhere the answer was the same – it was impossible to import a CITES II pet bird into India. It was only Furry Flyers’ Vinayak Prabhu who told me that the path ahead was difficult but he was willing to take it up as a challenge to get my pet into the country after completing all the formalities.
The path was indeed difficult and long, the obstacles sometimes looked unsurmountable and there were many times when I gave up. But perseverance and frantic efforts from Furry Flyers paid off andallowed me to get my beloved pet to India in June 2016.
I would recommend them to all without hesitation. Ever grateful thanks to the Furry Flyers team and special thanks to Vinayak Prabhu.

Pet Name: Candy / Gemma Dog/Cat: Dog / Cat
Thank you again very much for you and Furry Flyers help.
Both cat and dog arrived safely and with little stress.
We appreciate all your help, organization of matters such as the labelled crates and food and water.
Also the close attention given to detail to ensure that our pets were well looked after and all the documents were executed in time.
This is our second time using Furry Flyers and we would not hesitate in recommending you to our other colleagues in India.
I wanted to say big thank you for helping us with moving Scrumpy to Croatia.
We are back here well and Scrumpy adjusting well to her new home.
As far as all customs clearance in Croatia went, it was easy ( they barely opened and looked at documentation) and we were finished in less then minute. Only concern they had it was that she is microchipped, but never even bothered to check her chip😀
Thank you and have a nice day,

Pet Name: Gullu Dog/Cat: Dog
Dear Vinayak and team,
Thanks a ton for your service in bringing Gullu from Turkey to India. Relocating pets is a tense process for owners and finding you and getting your support was a blessing. Have to say that your team handled Gullu in a highly professional and sensitive manner. Also loved the perfectly organised personalised document folder! We are glad there are people like you who translate their genuine care to provide this rare service and look forward to working with you again!
Siddardha Armirneni Sector: BLR - USA
Pet Name: Penny Dog/Cat: Dog
Penny, 3 year old Labrador, relocated from Bangalore, India to Washington D.C., USA
I'd like to take the time out to thank Furry Flyers for the 10/10 perfect experience. They were involved from the beginning, making the entire process stress-free. They give you a detailed explanation of what YOU need to complete as a pet owner, and will also keep you updated on what THEY are completing (paperwork, vaccines, etc). The whole staff is very prompt & professional with their work. Mrs. Priya assisted me & my dog to the veterinarian office & international airport in Bangalore, which made acquiring the necessary export documents EXTREMELY EASY. Note that if you have to do this by yourself, it will be a lengthy & tiring process (with Mrs. Priya & Ms. Anupama's assistance this was completed within a few hours). This is all due to their genuine care & experience with pets. Ms. Anupama also gave me many last minute reminders on the day of our relocation, showing they care for your pet until the relocation is 100% complete. There were no issues at the airport or India/U.S. customs. My Labrador & I can't thank Furry Flyers enough for your help, and we will continue to thank you for as long as we live. I recommend this company to anyone with my eyes closed.
Bharat Kewalramani Sector: Malta - BOM
Pet Name: Folly Dog/Cat: Dog
Furry Flyers has managed 7 trips in the last 21 months for Folly, our black Labrador to and from India to Germany, France and Malta. They know pretty much all the rules and get all the paperwork done well in time. They also know how to get dogs from the UK to India as excess baggage which is a big deal. Highly recommended.
I wish to compliment you for the excellent service provided by Furry Flyers, for importing of my pet dog, Sam. I arrived at Mumbai airport yesterday, and the your representative Rajesh was at the airport with the original import approvals, and had arranged the Veterinary Quarantine officer to receive me inside the airport arrival terminal.
The entire import formalities, veterinary quarantine formalities, Customs clearance etc. were completed within 15 minutes, and the entire process was arranged flawlessly.
Thank you very much for your coordination efforts and excellent professional services. I also thank Sama Veterinary Clinic, Muscat, for recommending Furry Flyers to coordinate the import of my pet.
We have reached safely in UK and most importantly did Piku. We collected him from HARC within 3 hours from landing. He seemed a bit cold and scared but apart from that he was totally fine. All the paper work were in order and no issues whatsoever in collecting him. Piku is doing good now and getting used to his new environment.
Thanks for all your support and guidance through out this process, making our travel easy and stress free.
Thank you for the support and the excellent preparation. All the details were well prepared and most impressive was the special binder you made with all the important documents sorted including a spare copy in case an authority needs it. We never experienced such a thorough preparation. Thank you for that!
George is enjoying the cold weather! He has become very active and you can clearly see that he enjoys his new life. After 5 years he still remembered where we live and knows the way he used to go in the forest.
Best regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Pet Name: Hip Hop Dog/Cat: Cat
"I have availed the services of furry flyers to move my cat from US to India via Mumbai. I found their website online and after doing a bit of research decided to avail their services. They were easy to reach via phone and email and were very prompt with the move and all the queries I had. All my paperwork at the Animal quarantine was taken care by them in a timely and professional manner. One big help I got is in selecting the airlines that was best suited for my move. Apart from the tonne of paperwork required by animal department, airlines also have their own requirements. I can easily recommend furry flyers to anyone who is planning on getting their pet to India."
I am sorry that I have so long to write this thank you note for helping me get HUGO from New York to
his home in Coimbatore.
I was really very lucky that I chose your company for HUGO's relocation as I now know that its not just business
for you (although you are very professional) but your love of animals which makes you take a personal interest in each
pet's well being and in my case my problems about HUGO's relocation. I really and truly appreciate all the trouble
you took on our behalf to get HUGO home safe and sound. HUGO has settled down and is happy here.

Pet Name: Peggy Dog/Cat: Dog
We were very happy with the services of Furry Flyers. We had obtained your contact details from a Vetinary clinic and on approaching you over phone had provided us with all the documentation requirement in a detailed email. We scanned the documents and you responded with the necessary approval within 2 days.
We advised you of our arrival date and your representative was present in wee hours of the morning to deal with the customs at the airport with original approval. There after you assisted us with obtaining the permanent certificate at Vashi.
A huge huge thank you to you for everything you have done for us and for Shiva.
He made it alive and well and unstressed!
The guy at the HARC made a specific point of saying how amazing you were and that the paperwork you provided was the best he had ever seen. Other people were waiting 10 hours to pick up their pets but we were through in 2 hours.
He was amazed when I said you were just one woman working on your own.

Pet Name: Charlie Dog/Cat: Dog
Hope you and your team are well.
Just wanted to say a few words .....
"Although we weren't able to go ahead and use furry flyers due to certain logistical limitations, I was struck by Anupama's caring attitude towards our furry babies and her stickler nature towards policies and guidelines. Her approach and dedication to see the job satisfactorily accomplished shines through from the first time you contact her.
The costs and process involved are very reasonable and clearly provided in writing leaving no doubt or grey areas from the first day.
Furry Flyer are quick to respond to queries and to the point.
They are open and honest.
A much needed freshness compared to other places.
I'm glad they are providing India with a much required service and that too first class rated.
I would happily recommend them to anyone. And hope to be able to use their services again some day."

Three Cheers to Furry Flyers.
Happy to inform you that Hella has reached Flora, safe and sound. On behalf of everyone, I explicitly express my gratitude for the personal attention and patience you have shown us through out this process.
The service we had was a superb experience throughout the days prior to her departure, with endless queries answered most politely and professionally by you.
Flora could not be happier and this would not have been possible with you. We are really grateful for all your effort. Thank you so much!
I would like to thank you and appreciate your support and efforts for ensuring my pet's travel from Oman to India was smooth and with hassle. Your continuos communications through Whatsapp and Emails were just amazing and helpful. I would like to also mention and appreciate the detailed instructive emails that you send your client which helps them understand the process and follow them easily.
Please treat this email as a special appreciation for Mr. Mayur Bhalekar who met me at the Mumbai Airport. The boy is a perfect example of Client and Guest Relations service. He helped me with my pet from 1 terminal to another so that I would not get lost and my transit was smooth.
Please accept my humble thanks and I will for sure recommend Furry Flyers to every Pet Owner traveling to and from India!

Furryflyer did excellent job in relocating our Pet from USA to India. Vinayak and Manisha were very clear about requirements and sent us all documents promptly. Once we landed in India pet customs clearance was very smooth. Though flight landed very late in night, Rajesh was present at airport to help with clearance and he was very patient since customs took some time due to unrelated issue. Furry flyer is highly recommended and we are looking forward to use their services in future
Let me start with saying - Many many Thanks for safe and comfortable delivery of my baby - Charlie!!!
Liked the way you handled the entire process, patience and professionalism. I must say that I am a relieved person the time I saw him in front of me on the Airport.
It was really a long process for me - right for thinking for at least a year whether or not have Charlie to go through all this trouble of travelling across oceans for more than 16 hrs, considering his age. But you guys made it all simple and smooth both for me and him.
Will definitely recommend to my friends!!!
Special thanks to Anupama, you are doing the best work, keep it up!!!
I was looking for option to put this on your website as testimonial could not find it. Can you please put this for me on your website!
As a goodwill gesture, I have transferred Rs.2508.16 (ref:9A15A1) to furry flyer account.
This amount is date when I received charlie.
Thank you so much Anupama! Love you
I am also sending cake to your office address for the team.
I had contacted furry flyers,Mumbai for the relocation of my pet Persian cat Mochi from Kuwait to Mumbai and then to kochi..I am really impressed by the professionalism shown by this company..They organised everything from Kuwait to Mumbai..We arrived at mumbai airport with all the documents and my pet was cleared without any hassles.They even arranged our accommodation in Mumbai and advised us abt the travel to kochi by train.
The final NOC certificate was also obtained by them after a month.I am happy with their services and would like to recommend furry flyers to pet owners planning to relocate pets to India from abroad.
"We were referred to Furry Flyers, when we decided to take our beloved Sam (a mixed breed Lab) from Kuwait to India. Initially, we were daunted at the amount of procedures and documentation required to process the import permit, and thought we might not be able to take him with us.
The team at Furry Flyers contacted us and gave us a step-by-step checklist. We simply followed their instructions, and they were with us every step of the way, ensuring all our documents were in order.
4 days before our travel, we managed to send all the required documents across to Furry Flyers, and within 1 day, we had the import permit from the Indian authorities. The efficiency and professionalism of the team at Furry Flyers was simply amazing.
At the arrival gates, A person from Animal quarantine office was waiting for us with original NOC, and helped us to quickly clear the customs and exit the airport, and our Sam was finally in a place where he belonged.
Many thanks to the great team at Furry Flyers. Keep up the good work."
"I travel frequently between the U.S. and India with my dog. Furry Flyers handles the Indian import paperwork professionally every time. My very first trip with my dog, I made the mistake of hiring a different pet import agent who charged me exorbitant fees and told me many false things with regard to the process. I'm so glad I found Furry Flyers to handle all my subsequent trips. They are fair and honest and very straight forward to work with, I will continue to use their services every time I come back to India with my dog."

Pet Name: Ranger Dog/Cat: Cat
Thank you Furry Flyers for all your help with Ranger, our 3-year-old Bengal cat. You made his transition from Korea to India so smooth. You guys did a great job with our paper work and your services are excellent. I highly recommend your company to anyone who wishes to have an awesome experience in transporting pets from country to country.
We will definitely be contacting you again once we are ready to leave India for our next adventure.
I have 2 cats Tara and Roshni. we moved to India from the U.S. and wanted to bring the cats with us.. I was referred to Furry Flyers by a E-commerce retailer in the U.S.
I was hesitant to reach out to them, in hind sight i am very glad that i did, Furry Flyers team is awesome. From day one and through the move their service has been exceptional. The team is very organised and professional. An example - the representative was at the airport to help me with the original documents even before I landed! the documents had submitted to the quarantine officer.
Tara and Roshni have settled and happy here in India.
I would strongly recommend Furry Flyers if you have to bring your furry children with you.
Even while travelling with my dog to oman. And even while coming back to india. Furry flyers are the only one to depend upon. And can blindly trust on their service. Anupama vinayak, prabhu vinayak, manisha and rajesh have been the most amazing people to us. Thank you so much. I may have called anupama vinayak, prabhu vinayak, manisha and rajesh more than hundred times but they are always there to solve the doubt and query. Furry flyers thank you so much for helping me get my pet dog back to india. Hats off to your service.
Luna and I are eternally grateful to Vinayak , Manisha and Mayur and everyone else for making our transfer to India painless and seamless. Luna was well taken care of by Lufthansa. At Mumbai airport transition so effortless and speedy, we were out of the baggage claim area and into the Jet Airways terminal in about an hour and a half. We released Luna out of the crate at the Jet Airways ticketing counter and though we had to wait for about 8 hours for the connecting flight to Bangalore, we were not at all perturbed since our major hurdle had been overcome.
The people at Jet Airways took very good care of Luna both at Bombay and on arrival at Bangalore.
The changeover from Bangalore to Bombay as the initial destination plus the changes in dates at the last minute were highly expensive but worth every paisa. Money is materialistic and cold-hearted but animals are not.
Luna wishes to thank all of you for making the impossible possible.
I was very worried to put my 12 years old pet cat through air travel process when we decided to relocate from Singapore to India. Even thought of putting her up for adoption. But couldn't bear to separate from her so she came along.
Thought the paper work process in India would be smoothly done by self but was in for a shock. Thankfully found the FURRYFLYERS contact details via internet. From the first phone call and subsequent, I was well informed of all the details by Mr.Vinayak Prabhu & Manisha. You've guided me well through all the processes. Obtained the NOC on time. Every thing including the air travel for our kitty was smooth without any issues. When we landed in Chennai we were helped to obtain the provisional NOC as well.
Zeus came in ok late Friday night. He is settling in but is definitely very happy and so are all of us. Thanks much for all the support from my entire family. Please thank your sister as well!
Have a great week!:)
Words aren’t enough to express the professionalism in which you have handled our pet re-location. Thank you for the step by step guidance with ease of documentation as well as how to manage in the airline. Our kids Dexter & Foxxy are home safe and are loving the weather here in Bangalore. Its the first time they have seen squirrels, Crows, Buffaloes and sheep on the streets and their excitement is unbelievable, to add to it its raining here and they are super-excited.
When we reached Mumbai at an unearthly hour at 02:05 am your staff Mayur was waiting outside and he had already called me twice. We breezed through the customs without any issues and when I met him, he was standing with 2 nicely done files with Dexter’s and Foxy’s picture and copy of all their documents. As a token of appreciation for waiting at such an odd hour for us I offered a tip and he refused and proudly said “ Its my Job Sir” That made me feel so proud Vinayak that people like you and he still exist in this world and are ready to do things that you are passionate about. I have already recommended you to all my friends with pets for re-location. Keep up the good work.
I wanted to let you know that we made it home safe and sound with our dog and cat! No issues at all! Thank you for all the work you and your team did for us to ensure smooth transition! It was a big help to have you work with us in acquiring all the paperwork and vaccines! Both animals travelled very well, and we're so happy to have them with us!
Apologies on this late note. We reached US safely and we cannot thank you enough for all the help your team shared. Dude was perfectly fine after the travel and now is enjoying his stay here.
A personal note of appreciation to Priya for bearing with all my queries and anxiety about this travel. She truly helped me stay calm and gave me confidence that all will go well. Dhruv took me by surprise and our family was overwhelmed by the way he took over our case in such ease.
Thanks a ton to your team.
Lots of love from
Dude & family

Pet Name: Kiara Dog/Cat: Dog
Hello Mr. Vinayak and Team
" I had to transport my 2.5 year old lab-beagle mix, Kiara from Chicago, USA to India for permanent residence. As I started nervously researching options for international pet transport, I was discouraged by the high costs as well as the relative lack of information on paperwork needed for transfer of residence for a pet.
Luckily, I hit upon the Furry Flyers website and once I read some of the reviews, I was sold. Mr.Vinayak and his team were helpful and courteous from the get-go. Right from patiently answering my question-filled emails to handling an emergency when some of Kiara's paperwork got delayed.
Their assurances and around-the-clock availability helped alleviate any nervousness I had- And when you are worried about transporting your pet baby, you are highly grateful for that! :) Kiara made it to India, safe and sound and is now happily adjusting to her new surroundings :)
So Thank you to the entire Furry Flyers Team. I will surely recommend you to any of my friends needing to transport their pets internationally. Please keep up the good work! If possible, also look into arranging pet travel domestically- This is the one area in which your team could make a difference!"
Please excuse me for this delayed note of thanks and appreciation on behalf of my little bundle of joy,
You answered all my queries very patiently and devotedly related to the relocation process of Jade and
also showed your love and dedication towards animals by accepting my calls at any given time of the day
and even at nights for which I will remain ever so grateful.
The whole process of relocation looked like a very daunting task and had it not been for your
continuous support through e-mails and phone calls it would not have been possible to sort out so much
of paperwork as well as all other documentation.
If only Jade could talk as we all so wish that all our pets could rightly communicate with us on a
daily basis I am certain that she would have to say the following for you and your entire team.
WOOF WOOF and a BIG THANK YOU for making my travel so smooth, Vinayak Uncle and all at Furry Flyers.
Relocating our Mishti from New Zealand to India seemed like a herculean task. There were many documents to be understood, filled and submitted by specific dates. A very big thank you to Mr Vinayak Prabhu and Manisha Jadhav for making it possible. All my queries were patiently answered by Manisha and she instilled confidence in me. Mishti is settling down well all thanks to Furry Flyers. I wish them all the very best and will recommend them to anyone who needs to relocate their pets. I am happy to talk to anyone about our super experience with Furry Flyers.
Hope you are well. Hope Banjo is well too. A warm thank you for your efforts in getting our cats Mia and Loki to South Africa. They arrived safely though somewhat scared and anxious and they were happy to see us. They are settling into their new home and getting used to their new surroundings. They are also getting used to the short days as winter approaches. They have snuggled up on the bed as I write this. Thanks very much.
Thanks Anu. It was really great to have you at the airport. I know the process of back and forth on has not always been easy, but i was incredibly grateful to see you there, and to see what a professional job your team had done. The moment the Jet airways man came up and said "oh, madam, it is you, so we know there is no problem and everything is in order" told me everything i needed to know.
Thanks so much for making it possible for our darling baby , Snowy, to join us in Dubai. It still seems a bit of a fairy tale :). Thanks for patiently listening and calming the nerves of a paranoid mother, really appreciate that. I shall surely be recommending you to friends and family shipping their pets in and out of India.
All the best to you. Lots of love and a huge lick from Snowy.
Thank you so much Anupama. Actually I have not enough words to thank you for the way you handled the export of Lyra, with much love, care and concern. I am truly touched. Your unconditional love for animals is so transparent. God bless you always.
Sorry dear, I am rather late in getting in touch with you as soon after our arrival here, we had house guests and then of course my daughters were here for their Christmas break, so all pandemonium, what with Lyra adding her contributions to the chaos...hehehehe :-)
Lyra reached safe and sound and was in a kind of a daze when she was handed over to us. But the moment the cage was opened, she was all over us and of course made sure she maintained her distance from the dismantled cage in the car on her way home. She is well settled into her routines now of morning and evening walks and of course mischief unlimited once we are back from the office.
Thank you once again dear for all your help and continued support. You take good care of yourself and keep up the good work!!
We shall be in touch and I shall definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to import or export pets to and from India.
Rachel arrived safely. All is well with her. Thank you for your help.
I thought I would share some things that might help my other fellow travellers.
After check-in, the dog goes into the crate. I had to go pay for the dog. Then when the time came, the airline rep took us down to the area where baggage is X-rayed before being loaded. The dog comes out. They X-ray crate. The dog goes back in. We leave the crate there w/dog not go to immigration / customer.
I usually ask the air hostesses to let me know that the dog is loaded on to the plane. They understand our anxiety. They let us know once the dog is loaded. (This is Lufthansa; I assume other airlines do likewise).
We had one hour to make our connection at Frankfurt to Houston. WARNING - This is really tight for getting from the C gates where India flights arrive to the Z gates where US flights take off. Our BLR flight was 9 minutes late. There are two lines to go through from C to Z gates (one where they check your boarding pass and passport), and the second one is security. At both places we had 5 minute delays, because person(s) in front were fumbling around. net result, we missed our connection to Houston !!
They had not loaded the dog. They were able to tell us that immediately.
Back to Lufthansa service counter -- they tried to put us on a United flight -- but (IMPORTANT INFO) -- United takes only dogs that originate in Frankfurt; since we were coming from India, they would not accept our dog. It is important to let the Lufthansa agent who is arranging alternate flights to know that a dog is traveling with you.
The dog is kept in an animal lounge -- I am not sure if Lufthansa runs it or if the airport authorities run it. But excellent facility. I am told a vet checks the dog. They will not give a phone number so you cannot call to find out if dog is OK. They will call only if the dog is not well. So, it is important to have a cell that will work in Germany. (in other words, your cell phone has to have international features turned on before you leave India or the US).
I don't think they let you take the dog out. Anyway, it would be very inconvenient, and I don't recommend it. They do take good care of the dog in the animal lounge - walk it, feed it. Rachel came out looking brushed well.
1. I had copies of all certificates/ doctor's certificates/export certificate pasted outside the crate -- so Frankfurt animal lounge doesn't get concerned.
2. If your dog is allergic to certain foods, needs meds etc:, it would be best to leave instructions and (meds) on the outside.
3. We had some hypoallergenic biscuits in a Ziploc bag for her stuck to the outside. We did not have any food --in future (if there is a future trip), I will have food also.
Once again, we asked the air hostess lo let us know once the dog was on board, which she did graciously.
At Houston (I am assuming that the process is same in other cities) - let immigration know that you have a dog. They will put an A on your immigration clearance slip.
Collect dog - the dog does not come out in the baggage carousel; she comes out in a slightly different area.
Go past customs -- who will ask you to go into the 'Animal/Agriculture' office.
I was pulling out all the papers, when the inspector saw the vaccination booklet. "Just give me that" he said. I gave him the booklet. He saw the rabies and 5-in-1 stickers. Moved on to the deworming page. He examined that closely for an extra minute. 'OK, you may go.' Painless, and in happened in 2 minutes.
Lesson Learnt: At the quarantine office, the gentleman told me to put the deworming stickers on the vaccination booklet. THAT WAS VERY GOOD ADVICE. Thank him for me. That really expedited things.
At Houston, when you come out of International Arrivals, there is no 'grassy area' for the dog to pee. We were also told that the dog could ot come out of the crate there. (Poor Rachel -- it was getting close to 17 hours in the crate by then).
We were renting a car. In Houston, we have to get onto a big bus and go to the car rental center, where all the rental companies are based. They put the dog (still in the crate) in the bus. At the other end, we got her out, found a grassy area.
(Generous tips help; I had ten bags plus the dog. I ended up paying about $100 total -- $50 to the porter at international arrival, $10 to the driver, and $30 to the porter at the car rental agency.
Someone with two bags - $20 + $5 + $15?).
One last thing -- Lufthansa billed me a second time for the dog. The charge is meant to be $400 for the full flight. (BLR to IAH). BLR gave me a credit card receipt, but not a Lufthansa receipt (It may be worthwhile getting a receipt saying that the payment is for the dog).
Anyway the Lufthansa agent charged me $400 again -- I didn't know till I saw the email. I have to dispute it.
What I have to offer is specific to BLR, Lufthansa, Frankfurt and Houston.
1. In addition to keeping all the certificates, make sure that the vaccination book is in order -- that will speed things up.
2. Every airline agent you talk to -- let them know that you are traveling with a dog (pet) -- traveling with a pet introduces unexpected complications -- you and I don't know what. But hopefully the agents do.
3. Get receipts for the dog payment from the airline == or be prepared to spend time later to get the excess charges refunded.
4. Lastly, Lufthansa is well organized to transport pets through Frankfurt.
Thanks for your help.
Rachel is well and enjoying the cold weather in the US.
Just picked up Fudge from Heathrow. Everything has gone very smooth. We also got all the paperwork back. Again thank you very much for all your help. Speak to you in the next few weeks, when we fetch him back to India.
Attached picture of him in Hotel, settled back into the cold UK.
A Very Special Thanks to Mr. Vinayak for making me realize my dreams of bringing Susie to India. Doing this in Style and by making the Cumbersome Procedures look so simple is the Speciality that I as a pet owner appreciate deeply. Many Many Thanks to you. Susie conveys her Heartfelt Thanks to you all and is enjoying a lot here.
Thanks once again and Wish You All Many Many More Happy Pet Relocations.
Keep up the Great Service you have been doing and Wishing you All Success.
Hatchi and I reached Vancouver safe and sound and there were absolutely no issues once we were out of Mumbai. I would like to thank you and the entire team for all the assistance and help that was provided from the start to finish.
For me the thought of taking two kittens 10thousand miles to the UK was a daunting enough process, however Anupama and the team at Furry Flyers made the whole process extremely smooth and stress free. I cannot thank them enough for the attentiveness and professional service and highly recommend them to all who wish to travel with their pet. Simba and Snowball have now happily settled in to their forever home in London and it's all thanks to Anupama and Furry Flyers. Thank you!
Everything went well. Chiki and me arrived save and fine in Frankfurt yesterday. All the papers were proper and enough for the authorities in the Airport, there were no difficulties at all. Thanks a lot for all your help. I am very happy that these things are done. Thanks to all your staff for this work and support you have done for us.
Now chiki and me has to adjust into the new situation and the German autumn and coming winter..:)
Thanks for helping daddy get our beloved Putun home in Abu Dhabi...She reached here at 2:30 am. Daddy was very emotional....actually he loves her equally like us..sometimes I think more that the two of us. On behalf of Putun Ma Daddy my baby sister Suranjita and me ...a big thank you and God bless u always.
Wuld like to thank you and your team for the safe transit of my cats to USA. I collected them here around 2:30 PM US Time after going through the customs clearance. It didnt take much time to have the cats with me. They were healthy, perhaps tired from the journey and being away for so many hours.
Pussu was vocal all the way back home, but Chintu , as usual, was very quiet. Even at new home, they were little restless. Around 6:00PM here, I made both of them sleep.
My wife is lvery nervous about everything. I know she might have troubled you about the travel of cats. At least she was happy to know that the cats reached here safely and I collected them before her flight took off.
Once again, a very big thank you. Will call you once my wife and daughter reach here.
We are very much pleased to inform you that “Dazzel” has safely landed into the US and is at home with us.
Customs clearance was a very smooth and easy process here. We had to take Dazzel to the customs officer who had some general questions (why rabbit and not cat or dog?, is the anti-rabbis vaccination done ?). they also had a brief look at the documentation and we were good to walk out with Dazzel in about 5 mins.
Appreciate all the hard work you and your company took to make this happen. It was a journey in the dark which we all sailed through rightly with your support.

I just wanted to let you know that Tango reached Boston safely on 18th August with Sanjana. However, Sanjana got really sick the week they landed and we didn't find the time to write to you and thank you for getting this done so perfectly.
All the paper work and formalities were done so well that we didn't face any issues during the travel, transit or the airport here.
Thank you so much for coordinating all this! I'm planning to get my second dog to Boston somewhere in April 2016. I'll connect with you again to get the paper work done for her as well.
This is to thank you for all the efforts, work and support for bringing Pepper to UK. He arrived safely and was brought home by James Cargo people. All the formalities and paperwork got over very fast i.e. within three hours.
We wanted to call you to thank you but I thought writing will mean more.
I was so nervous about my pet s travel but after talking to you from my first call till the end of his this journey you gave me a lot of confidence.
I knew Pepper was in good hands.
Once again we thank you and your team especially Rajesh and Mayur for everything you all did for my pet s travel and safe arrival in UK.
We wish you All the very Best for all your future endeavors.
May all your furry fliers reach their respective homes safely.
I will call you one of these days.
Thanks and Regards,

Pet Name: Yuki Dog/Cat: Dog
I want to say thank you to you and your team who helped me with import procedure for Yuki. Everything, from your guidance for getting paperwork in order, to ensuring speedy clearance at Mumbai airport and, follow through for final NOC today, has been professionally and efficiently done. I really appreciate quality of service Furry Flyers team has extended.
I am sure I will be in touch with you when we are ready to take Yuki back to US in another 2 years.
As feedback, we have been very happy with your service. Your instructions were clear throughout the process and you have worked diligently to complete all the paperwork to clear quarantine requirements. I'll be happy to recommend you to others if needed.
Just to let you know, Pupae has reached Dammam, safe and sound. There was an initial hiccup at Jet airways counter where people kept looking at each other as if they don't know what to do. Eventually a personnel from Jet helped me out and I was there with her till about an hour before the flight.
Here also no issues as we were there to pick her up at the conveyor and no one asked for the paperwork here.
Overall she is good and is exploring her new place.Thanks for all your help and support.
We had our 2 cats transferred from Kuwait to Mumbai a month ago. Vinayak and his full team have been very helpful. We didnt know about the strict regulations until just 10days before leaving the country but Vinayak assured that he would get it done if everything was done to the T and he did do it for us :) The boys are Settling in well. Both in their own ways. Their favorite thing is rolling around in the balconies enjoying the fresh air and watching everything happening on the streets..
It's really very late but we have never forgotten you & your team for the wonderful job done in transporting our babies to us, halfway across the world.
Mallika & Royce are loving their life here in Kuala Lumpur & I think they will always be grateful to you for the care you took in ensuring their safety and comfort throughout their journey from Mumbai - Dubai & onward to KL.
If we had a choice,we would use your services to transport them anywhere in the world without batting an eyelid or two:).
Everything about the move was thoroughly professional in handling as well as cared for.
I was so apprehensive in the beginning because it was the first for us as well as both our boxers. But since then, I am very confident abt flying them with us but it would be an icing on the cake to have you do that, which unfortunately may not be the case.
Please take this to be a heartfelt testimonial from Dean, me, Mallika & Royce. Royce is a very big & handsome boy, Mallika is ageing very gracefully but is spunky as ever.
Thank you once again for the wonderful experience we have had moving. We wish you the very best in all your ventures. Attaching a few pictures of the pooches enjoying their time here.
Many thanks for all your help, you have made our move to India so much easier, I was so worried about getting Geeza sorted out, but you and the team at Furry Flyers took that headache away from me, many thanks.
Sorry for taking so long to write to you both ...as you can imagine life has been a little crazy as is when you move to a new but exciting place with your pet in tow!
Tom is doing very well and is slowly adapting to the hotter climate...things are different for us both and we have had our good and not so good moments but we pull through and the people here have really taken us both to their hearts which has helped immensely.
I want to thank you both for all your hard work as without you none of this would be possible and although we had some 'hairy' moments for one reason or another things have worked out for the best. Both Tom and I have reached our new home and before long we will settle in and he will develop his new routine and habits.
Vinayak I got the email from Rajesh and I will arrange for a local vet to see Tom and we willsend you the documents you have requested.
In the meantime I would again like to send our heartfelt thanks to both of you and your amazing teams and I have attached a few photos of us both in our new home!!!
My mom's three dogs made it from Mumbai and in great
shape and are happy and healthy today due to Anupama
at Furry Flyers. They are older dogs and I was an
emotional mess after my mother's passing, and Anupama
was a savior.
She not only made sure the dogs would be safe and comfortable,
she also looked after me as I fell apart due to all the emotion
and stress (my mother had just passed very unexpectedly and I had
to deal with that plus family plus getting my dogs home). Words
cannot recommend her highly enough
1. What I did on her advice was get crates larger than required
so dogs had ample space to sit stand turn around and move about.
2. And also we got crates early so dogs could get used to them and thought
of them as dens. i fed them in the crates, put their cushions in there
and made them sleep in there, doors open first few days then doors
closed and I slept in front so I was there. by the day of flying
they were happy being in crates.
3. I did replace the plastic water dishes (mugs) with stainless
human grade dishes I got from a local shop, and we got holes made
at top to attach to crate door. Anupama saw these and approved.
(someones dog came on the same day as mine from Delhi one hour
later, and had lot of health issues on landing as they had only
ice for him and he was dehydrated... we were at the airport
waiting for our customs guy and witnessed the whole mess.
Anupama made sure my dogs had ample water, and I got these
large deep dishes, usually used for tiffin in India, and so
our dogs had plenty of water, I think crucial given what I
saw with the Delhi dog)
If you are flying into Newark please know the customs guy
to release the dogs came at 12 pm on Saturday so we had
to wait after landing at5 am... weekdays they open at 8
I believe. So maybe best to fly in weekdays. But in the
time between landing and release, the people at United
were very kind and let me see the dogs going for a walk
and chat with them so I was reassured that they had made
it and dogs knew I was there.
I would like to thank Anupama and her team of expertise for their amazing effort and care for helping me to relocate my pets from India to Malaysia. Her expertise not only made it hassle free but also helped my pets deal with the different surrounding while transportation. There was no hassle and it was truly an easy yet amazing experience . II would definitely say that SHE HAS THE BEST PET RELOCATION COMPANY IN INDIA! would recommend her services to all the pet lovers out there in India!

Pet Name: Roxy Dog/Cat: Dog
I am happy to inform you that our pet has reached safely and in good shape even with 4 hours delay. Thanks for all your help, courteousness in preparing documents and delivering crate. Overall the price was reasonable and I recommend Furry Fliers for those who wish to export their pet.
I thought you might like to know that Lulu is doing very well in her UK kennels. I visit her twice a week and spend time with her playing ect. She's settled in well and is ,of course, used to life in kennels. It was such a relief to get her to the UK , I was so stressed in India...still all is now well and thank you all.
I thought you might like a little history about Lulu. I found her by the road side in Bundi in Rajastan. I have been travelling around India on my own for 18 years and have never bonded with an animal I've helped before but Lulu caught my heart. She was so small, all on her own , still had her baby fluffy hair , amongst mens' feet. She looked up at me and I walked past, 20 paces down the road, went into a small shop and asked for a cardboard box, turned, put her in it and back to the hotel. Next day a 6 1/2 hr train journey and 3 hrs on bus to Udaipur. She traveled in my small back pack. I had to hide her in hotels but the rescue centre in Udaipur found a place where I could keep her in my room. 2 wks later a train to Mumbai , 2 days there hidden in hotel room and then down to Goa where I kept her in my room until the landlord said she had to go. She went to animal rescue, where they said she might not survive as puppy flu ect.
I went home ,raised the money to bring her to the UK and you know the rest.........lovely Lulu is safe and loved, a lovely Indian dog in England.
Many apologies for not responding to your message after my arrival in India. It has taken me a few weeks to regain my sense of orientation and get settled in Bangalore.
My heartfelt gratitude to you for enabling a smooth transition for Jolt from the US to India. Your patience and rapid response to my zillion questions is greatly appreciated. I would strongly recommend furry fliers to anybody who intends to relocate to India with a pet. Please find attached a picture of Jolt.
We reached Finland on 22nd but did have a chance to send a thank you mail ..
The Travel from Bangalore to Frankfurt was good ,Lufthansa folks really helped us in taking care of Pepper .We had to move him to the upper deck bay one seat behind us .. he was absolutely fine .. but gets a bit paranoid if he hears our voice ... but overall travel to Frankfurt was all good .. the transit and the rest of the leg was fine as he was extremely tired and sleepy .. so we got through the travel.
At the customs they just browsed through the documents and said everything is ok .. he can come with you :) .. i was like awesome ..
So all good .. we are still settling down .. yet to move into our apartment .. but i guess Pepper is liking it here.

"Furry Flyers was very thorough and professional during every step of our journey moving to New Delhi, India! I know it may sound bizarre but we absolutely had not one issue in obtaining the NOC and quarantine certification for our cat. Manisha Jadnav was very informative and removed fact from fiction while she guided us through every step. We are most happy with the service provided by Flurry Flyers and my wife and I highly recommend them to anyone importing or exporting their pet in India!"

Dear Mr Vinayak,
Warm greetings from Goa!
Once again we like to thank you for all your help and care in safely and smoothly transporting Peanut to India. He is getting acclimatized to the weather here other than that, he is doing very well and getting his orientation to our apartment now.
For a start, it is much nicer to be in a warmer climate. We are very excited to settle in and explore this wonderful country. People here are very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to experiencing the diversity of it all.
I hope that you are well. Aelope is finally here! Thank you so much for the amazing crate and packaging, she seemed really happy and safe in it. I have to tell you something that happened at the airport: we got there and my mom started calling out Aelope's name and speaking to her in Marathi and she was so happy. Sorry about the delay in letting you guys know about her arrival, but we left the airport 6 hours ago and just got home!
She is an incredible dog and I am so glad that she's here. Thank you so much for everything, I really am so very grateful.
I cannot thank you enough for making this journey for me and my Snowie safe. I troubled you with silly question but you understood how worried I was and answered them patiently.. You made this whole process very simple.
Thanks to Vinayak, each and every person who helped me bring my snowie baby safely to our home. My whole family is super happy and enjoying each and every moment with him and this is all because of furry flyers group. Snowie is also happy and thanking you.What you guys are doing is a great work which brings happiness to our lives. I really appreciate your guidance and help. Thank you once again. Thanks a lot...
Suzie has reached us, he is okay and is getting comfortable with the new surroundings.
As you can see, he has nicely plonked himself on our bed as he always does. I guess it will take him a few days to get used to the new house. We have also made a lot of arrangements to ensure that he acclimatises soon enough.
Thank you for transporting him here safely. You and your team took care of this entire process with a lot personal care and attention. It really means a lot to us and we are extremely appreciative of your efforts.
I do not know how to thankyou enough for the work you did in supporting the export of our two dogs from London to Mumbai.
The numerous phone calls I made to you, with sometimes silly and basic questions, you understood completely how important our dogs our to our family and not once did you make me feel like I was any trouble.
The advice you gave was fundamental in allowing me and my husband to make the right decisions with the airline and how to bring the dogs in. I honestly feel as though you helped us make the best decision we could, bearing in mind that our dogs are snub nosed and can have problems with various airlines.
You were thorough with the paperwork and on the day of the travel your agent in Mumbai (Rajesh) had already done all of the work with the quarantine officer pre to me arriving in Mumbai. We sailed through immigration with the dogs with no delay.
I honestly cant thankyou enough.
I would recommend your services to anyone thinking of relocating with their pets, because it made a stressful experience manageable.
Yours faithfully Rushita and Paul Kitchen With Herbie and Cookie
All is well. We reached Columbus Monday afternoon and zipper was picked up Monday night. It was almost midnight as his flight from ORD was delayed.
The most interesting part was EWR. Where we actually got to meet and be with zipper for some time. after our immigration, we went to petsafe lounge. As we were approaching, zipper was being taken for a walk. He was sooo thrilled to see us..along with united folks we walked him for him to do his business. He was fed and again we walked him a little.
And we had to hand him over ..
All in all we may have spent not more than 15 mins with him, but was most essential for all of us.
Thank you soon much for all your help.....this is the pic taken in EWR.
Chilli, Kaya and I reached SFO yesterday afternoon. Thank you so much for all your help.
I was'nt super happy with how things turned out with Lufthansa though I had heard great things about them.
On the day of boarding I did'nt have any issues getting to the counter because I got porters to help me. But there was software problem at Lufthansa and they made me wait for 2 hours before I got my I boarding pass. However I had exercised the dogs the whole day so didnt have problems getting them to go inside the crate.
When I landed in SFO I realized Lufthansa had'nt fed the dogs. The food packets were intact. They were extremely stressed when I finally got them out. However, they are much better today.
I have attached a pic of us after we landed at the SFO airport.
Its the third day here now and Chimpoo is settling down, he is really looking very happy to be with us and I feel all the trouble is worth the result. He is getting used to the cold. I will be buying some warmers for him, soon.
So, all the very best to you and thanks again for all the things you did and thanks for the loving hug for Chimpoo; he enjoyed it :). I am sending his snap after coming here with my daughter.
Bunnu reached safely at around 9.30 pm local time. Was bit tired only. Thank you for helping us in the whole process . It was indeed a very gratifying experience with you and all the members of Furry Flyers. I shall spread the word of appreciation to other families who would intend to avail your services.
With warm personal regards

This is to let you know that my mother, brother and Marley have reached safely. My mother told me what a great help you guys were. Its because of you that the whole journey was so comfortable. The dog is doing perfectly fine. We want to thank you with all our heart for helping us getting a member of my family safely to India. Thanks for the continuous follow ups and guidance during the process of obtaining the NOC.
I am so sorry of this very delayed email to you. I just wanted to send you thanks for making Freddie's trip to the UK smooth and without any complications. He is well settled into the UK now and reached fine to the UK with all thanks to you. Honestly it was a pleasure to meet you, rare do you meet someone so loving and considerate of our four legged friends. Keep up the fantastic work and please thank all the team.
Considering bringing my dog Maggie to India seemed like an overwhelming prospect, leaving her behind even more so. I knew I had no choice to try and was relieved to know that a service such as FF was available. I had greater peace of mind knowing there was an agency familiar with India to negotiate the process for me, even when my flight was delayed at the last minute and I needed the NOC revised, they came through.
A BIG thank you to you and your wonderful team for making my travel from Auckland to Mumbai seamless.
Never been on a plane before and it was difficult being confined in a cage for 24 hours . ( I am used to the freedom of a big house, a back yard ,soft beds and a wonderful family.). Could not poo and pee and had to fast too.. you know , ..we love food...
But, in the end it was worth all the effort. Your colleague Pritesh took excellent care of me right from the time I landed at Mumbai through clearing and customs. What a feeling it was to be reunited with Meghna and my mom Sujatha.
My visit to the Vet's office was also very well handled by your colleague. My Dad Rishi tells me that you guys are amazing with paperwork too ..
I think you guys are simply adorable and its important for my brothers and sisters planning to settle down in India to know about you .
Will you please put up this testimonial and my awesome selfie on your web site .. Who knows... I might find love !!!
We used the services of Furry Flyers when we relocated to India from the US in 2015. They made it so easy for us to move with our pet dog, and really removed the stress that would have been associated with the complex process, and allowed us to have one less thing to worry about with the relocation of our young family. Since our dog is really part of the family, we were lucky to find an agency that would allow us to bring her along with us, and made the process very smooth. Everyone was extremely pleasant and easy to deal with as well, I would recommend them to anyone who needs similar services.
I would like to highly recommend Anupama and her team at Furry Flyers for their kind help, professionalism, expertise and patience to make moving two cats from Mumbai, India to London, England an easy and stress free experience. The two cats arrived in London healthy and happy.
I wanted to thank you and your staff for excellent service and help you provided with relation to shipping our cat, Priyanka, to Dubai. Both quarantine inspection and the actual travel went very well. Priyanka arrived calm and quiet, very happy to see me again and explore her new home. I will certainly recommend your company in the future to people that may require those services.
Once again, thanks for being so available to us, worried pet parents!
All family members and especially the furryones reached safely.
I want to thank you for from bottom of my heart for being polite, patient and making sure to get the right paper work through out to help me. When I look at the number of emails we exchanged, i felt that it definitely takes lot of patience and cool headed ness to deal with clients like me. Thank you for all the effort. I will not hesitate a moment to refer furryflyers to anyone who is in need.
We recently used the services of Furry Flyers to relocate our pet dog from Gulf to India. The services offered by the company were prompt and they have dedicated staff who doesn't hesitate to go beyond their capacity to make things happen. I have to really appreciate the efforts of Manisha Jadhav who constantly followed up with the Authorities concerned as well as me to ensure that all documents and necessary arrangements are in place for the safe relocation of our pet. I highly recommend Manisha and her team for any pet relocation to India.
Manisha - thank you for all your efforts again and keep in touch.
To all the wonderful people at Furry Flyers...You have all done a FANTASTIC job helping me to bring Bonita & Chiquita all the way to Mumbai safely...
A great team working so well together..Special thanks to Manisha who has been helping me from the first call that I had made to her from Toronto.. Thank you Manisha!
Also to Pritesh or is it Rajesh who met us at the airport on our arrival after a long, tiring flight. and is still working to compete the process of relocating the girls here..am deeply grateful to both of you..
Will keep contact with all of you and recommend Furry Flyers to any of my friends who need to relocate their pets anywhere in the world..
Thanks once again..Feel very happy knowing that I can count on all of you when it comes to my 2 special girls.
Thanks a lot for all the help. Robin reached San Francisco safe and sound. Although I was really worried as it was a very long journey, but your guidance helped. Two things that were particularly useful were:
1. Getting him used to crate 3 months before flying.
2. Not letting him sleep one day before flying.
Cant thank you enough :)
Here is a pic of Robin and Ayaan in San Jose.
Greetings from Laos.
This is to inform you that we did arrive in Laos safely with all 3 pets WITHOUT any hassles on the way. A BIG THANK YOU to your staff who picked up the pets and delivered them to the airport. He also helped set up their crates as per the IATA requirements.
One more cat to travel, he will come later with our elder son who continues to stay in Mumbai. We are still settling in and hence the delay in this email.
Thank to Furry Flyers, especially to Manisha Jadhav for helping us to import our pets. They know their job particularly, and they made our jorney rather easier. The attitude to the customers is extremely careful and friendly. And we'll reccomend this company to all our friends.
Apologies for not having written earlier. We are more or less settled in Leeds now. Dimpu is also doing fine!
We would like to thank you for making the export of Dimpu to UK so very painless and smooth. All our fears appeared to be uncalled for as we did not face any hurdles at the Animal Reception Centre at Heathrow. By the time we reached ARC all paperwork was complete and Dimpu was waiting eagerly for us!!
It was a real pleasure working with Furry Flyers..
I used Furry Flyers to obtain necessary documents for my dog's import from Singapore to India. I primarily worked with Manisha who was always very prompt in her replies. There seems to be lot of requirements by India Government and the list of documents needed is rather confusing. FurryFlyers gave me a comprehensive list of documents that are needed and helped me clarify a lot of questions along the way. The daunting process was made rather simple due their services. They had even coordinated with the local quarantine officer to wait for us near the baggage area and their person was right outside the airport to help out in case there were any issues. Fortunately for us, there were none and we walked out of the airport with our dog in no time... I would highly recommend Furry Flyers to anyone who wants to import their pet into India..
Here are some nice pictures of our daughters. As you can see they are enjoying their little garden, which they always missed in Kolkata, and also you can see the joy in my eyes.. Thanks a lot. You are really a great person.. Also thanks to Manisha, Rashmi, Rajesh, Mayur and all your team members.. I know I was a pain for you guys because I worry a lot. So your help and professional service is all the more appreciated. Your team members and specially you Dear Anupama helped me to come out from it and become a good friend of mine. Ian is also very relaxed and very very happy to see his daughters are playing in the garden and Love the new home. Thanks a lot...
Love you and your team members.
God bless you and members..
Loads of Love and Hugs from Ian and Taniya (me)..
Loads of and loads of licks and woofs from Irish and Fluffy.
I have used the services of Furry Flyers from both Mumbai (Import) and Bangalore (Export) on 2 different airlines. I am impressed and grateful for their all round services. Thoroughly professional, very detailed, responsive and affordable. They take the guess work out the whole process and help you with all paper work, coordination and handling. They commit only on what is possible and totally adhere to their commitments. Thanks Anupama and Priya.
I would like to thank you and your staff on a very personal and comforting experience in moving Mason, our pug from Mumbai to Dubai seamlessly. Our dog like anyone else’s has become a family member more than a pet. The way you and your staff handled the situation put us at ease.
Being a pug, there are special conditions and care that need to be applied, Anupama and the Furry Flyer staff explained thoroughly all processes, helping with paperwork, finding an import company on the Dubai side and even making sure he was housed and fed properly until we arrived the next day.
There was a bit of miscommunication on the import side in Dubai, Me frantic about Mason, called Anupama at 2 AM that night. Within 2 rings, she picked up, said leave it with me and had all sorted within 10 minutes.
I cannot stress how well the whole process was handled. Furry Flyers isa cost effective, very personal and actually quite easy solution. We are not the type to write these things, but it had to be done. Mase is home with us in Dubai and we could not be happier at the whole experience. Thank you personally Anupama, we owe you dearly.All the best to you and your company.
Hope you'll forgive my lack of contact since leaving India last July. Gigi & I have never forgotten you but losing Darby to 4 months quarantine left us heartbroken and we pretty much put our lives on hold until the wonderful day at the end of Nov when we got him back. The
time between then and now seems to have flown by and we already find ourselves 1 month into the new year...!!
Darby settled straight into our new home and is loving the long, cool walks he gets everyday with plenty of interesting animals and new smells along the way...! The quarantine kennel was excellent, we visited him twice per week every week and he came home to us in a very healthy condition.
We hope you, your husband and your 'boy' are all well and we hope your respective businesses are good!
I've said it before but could never thank you enough for your terrific support in moving Darb from India to the UK. You are a lovely woman and your passion for animals and their welfare is truly admirable!
Take very good care, we'll always remember you!
Neil, Gigi & Darby xx
Thanks a lot for all that you did for Ginger. He landed safely in Singapore yesterday. We didn't have any problem at the airport. We had everything that they had requested.
Thanks for everything to you and your team. Will definitely recommend your services to anyone who is planning to Export or import their dog from/to India.
New Delhi to Singapore
Dear Ms Anupama Vinayak ,
Further to my earlier word of appreciation & thanking you from the core of my heart through the note dated 31.01.2014 ,
Now I would add on my thanks & appreciation for the thorough & comprehensive professional highest quality of care & hospitality extended to my dearest pet " Ginger " to make him reach to join his family absolutely safe & sound .
All b'coz of your thorough planning & well thought execution to the minutest detail .
Also I take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to Ms Manisha Jadhav b'coz of whose relentless efforts " Ginger " could pass the toughest medical test & could see these happy days.
I understand some people say out of humility & courtesy that we have done our job since we are paid for it , BUT when you put that extra bit in the form of personal humane touch , then the flavour is altogether different & that is precisely we have got it from you & your well coordinated team , bitia .
Fluffy has reached me all safe and sound. Thank you so much for you and your whole teams help, especially with the mountains of documents. Fluffy is a lil cranky but am sure that will wear off. Cant thank you enough as I was missing him so much and it was such a relief seeing him delivered on time in the wee hours of the morning as promised. I have attached his pic taken just after few hours of his arrival:)
Sorry I couldn't get in touch earlier. All of us would like to thank you and your team for getting Dexter through this whole process safely. Everything was handled very professionally and he came home very safe. Excellent job!
Dexter is settling in slowly. He was quite spooked since he landed refused to eat and dint make a sound. He had become totally silent, today we heard his first meow. He's much better today, playing around a little and eating well. He's still investigating the house. I am attaching a picture of him at home all spooked out. I will keep you posted on Dex and keep in touch.
Journey was pretty interesting with my little Boy. He handled it well and I am proud of him. I want to give special thanks to you and your team for handling the relocation of Pal so well. All papers were well documented. You were very supportive in answering every question at any point of time.
I just realized that I had not sent pictures of Irene and Angel after we got
here to Baltimore. I did send you a message from the airport as soon as
I picked up the kitties, and I assumed you got it.
Well, here are a few pics that were taken just the day after we arrived.
so you can see kitties are still a little dazed :)
I will send you another set of pics taken more recently, now that they are
Thanks again for all the excellent service you provided. Never dreamed
that it would work out so smooth, when I started thinking of the move.
Your team has handled the job so professionally, and with utmost care.
I want to thank you for the excellent work you are doing, and your entire
team who I saw work with care and enthusiasm.
I highly appreciated the service from Furryflyers transferring my two cats from Denmark to Bangalore. Working with extremely tight timelines Furryflyers managed to help to get us safely through the documentation jungle and enabled us to have our beloved cats with us to Bangalore. I warmly recommend the services from Furryflyers.
This email is to thank you for such a wonderful service you offered to my dog and me. I had no problem getting Leo from the animal center in London, in fact we got him within two hours of landing. Thank you again. Hope to keep in touch.
ps: A big thank you to Rajesh and all your support staff. Cheers!!
Wanted to let you know me and Toby reached safely to Chicago yesterday. He is doing great. I was so relieved to see him sitting inside the cage in the baggage claim area. But immediately he started yelling and crying moment he saw me, must have been very terrifying for him. But I am sooo glad he made it safe and sound. They checked only his rabies certificate in the customs and nowhere they asked for any copies of the docs, neither they wanted to check it. All they were concerned with were the shot records and the rabies shots date.
Now I would have to find out something to reduce his barking and hyper nature otherwise my neighbors would throw me out!
Thanks for all your help Anupama . Will refer Furry Flyers to all my friends.
We are home safe and sound! Thank you so much for the wonderful help. Sherlock is happy and healthy and there were no hassles to get him in the USA. You truly made this trip worth while. A big thank you and hats off to you and your team!
At last I have 5 minutes to sit and write to you. We are home and settled. All thanks to you. How we would have managed without you I can't imagine. Everything was so well organised and went off so smoothly. I can't thank you enough. Your staff are all delightful, calm and helpful - and of course you run an amazing ship. My friend I stayed with in London the first night is in International Removals and I have told her all about your wonderful operation, so should she have expats to or from India she now knows who to contact.
I wish we had been in Bombay and met you earlier. As I said it would have been nice to have socialised! Maybe when we are back on a business trip we can do just that.
For now, a thousand thanks for all you did to make our move with the animals a stress-free one. Your care for them was the most wonderful thing.
Anupama Vinayak of Pet Vacations made it possible for me to transport my kitten, Keeri , from Kochi to England.
She advised me on all the papers I needed and guided me through the process of getting the EU Third Country Health Certificate. It was done seamlessly and with good cheer.
I noticed she is very good at handling animals, especially traumatised ones. (She is also good at handling stressed-out pet owners.) She provided a large cage for Keeri to spend two days in Mumbai, while she waited transportation to England.
Anupama and her staff made everything look easy; I cannot thank her enough.
"My labrador, Oba, flew safely to Singapore last week under the care and love of Furry Flyers.
It was a great pleasure working with Anupama and her staff. They were very caring and patient with my pet at every step in the process, starting from dealing with the paperwork and quarantine appointment till she was actually loaded on the flight. Anupama was always available for any questions and clarifications and it would have been impossible to manage this stressful move without her help. Her experience helped us navigate the process very smoothly and her attention to detail ensured that Oba reached us safe and sound. Her love for dogs and care for their safety showed in all her preparations. I very highly recommend Anupama and Furry Flyers for help relocating your pet!"
It was by chance that I came across "Flurry Flyers" when I was desperate to find a way to bring back four of my cats all the way from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Anupama, it was so comforting and assuring talking to you. After a couple of emails we were on our way. Coordinating to procure the right papers was a nightmare. But, Manisha always sounded so calm and positive all the time. More documents were scanned, emailed, a number of calls later.... it all came together. Thank you dear Manisha. Priya, thank you for handling customs and dropping off the cats. Our cats- Snow, Puff, Phil and Cookie thank the entire Furry Flyers staff for their hard work. Thank you Furry Flyers team, you were so efficient and managed to make it happen! Keep up the great work.
Regarding the service of Furry Flyer I can say " Its excellet. Beyond my expectation".
"Furry Flyers mean a comfort in pet moving.. total dependable organisation for its service". The regular communiction and updation of the status is one of the great service from you and the team of Furry flyer. At no time I feel tension during the whole process of getting NOC from india while I was at Singapore.
Once again thanks to you and the team of Furry Flyers
I am delighted to say that LV arrived safe and sound at my mother’s house at about 2 am IST this morning. She seems to be in good health albeit a little stiff from being in the cage for so long and very tired as I doubt she slept much. Attached are some photos taken soon after she arrived and she has taken to her new owner (who she has met before a number of times) very quickly.
From start to finish my experience with Furry Flyers has been superb and you have made a process that is complicated and stressful for pet and owner alike very smooth. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to others in the Bangalore community who may be looking to transport their animals out of India. If you would like a testimonial to use from me then do let me know as I will be happy to provide something.
I would like to thank Furry Flyers for the most wonderful service they provide in relocation of precious pets.
We relocated from the UAE to India. We had almost given up hope of taking our cat along with us - people we had contacted not only quoted large amounts to get the paper work done but made it seem an impossible task for our cat to travel. And then we were truly Blessed to find Furry Flyers. From the very first contact we made with them, we were filled with hope. And our hopes were not in vain. Manisha, we thank you very especially for the great support every step of the way. You went out of your way to help and support us even with details of flights, contact people, etc. Thank you, thank you.
Furry Flyers charges were so very reasonable and affordable. And they guided us so well for every document required - due to which we had no problems in getting the required documents. Even after arrival in India, though we delayed so much in reverting with some documents that were required for the permanent stay of the cat, they followed up with us diligently and then got for us the required documents.
Furry Flyers are the best ever and I would highly recommend anyone who needs relocation of their pets to use their services. They are so very reasonable in their charges and you can have total peace of mind knowing that true professionals are taking care of your precious pets.
we have very much liked your service. It was efficient, caring and punctual. Thank you very much for taking such good care about our 'gilrs', we will definitely recommend you to anyone who is relocating with pets and we will use your service again when we need to relocate again.... ED Van Popele
Thanks for all the help yourself and the entire team extended in relocating ginger to UK. Convey our special gratitude to Priya in Bangalore.
Ginger is absolutely fine with no health related issues. Here temp is minus 3, still he is coping well. He has good appetite and plays around well. Myself and kids have reached on Friday and they too have a nice time with ginger.
Well it has been pretty chaotic since we arrived home, but every day gets easier. Sarah is amazing she is taking it all in her stride. She has become very close to Fynn our Golden Retriever which surprised us all !! He has been officially declared Sarah's Toy ! Poor boy hardly gets a moments peace she is biting - jumping on or hanging off some part of him most of the day and he is loving it, lots of play fighting and tearing around the garden.
The other 3 babies - Teddy, Ollie and Bendy Girl are a little stand offish mostly but occasionally they have a little dabble at play, just not sure how to take her at the moment - She's a bit of a tornado !!! but so much fun and so much love. I have attached several pictures for you and will of course give you updates from time to time.
On a more serious note I once again send you and you lovely team all my thanks for making this such an easy process.
You relieved me, and Sarah of a lot of stress and worry, the way you arranged everything with meticulous attention to detail and both mine and Sarah's well being - From the collection of Sarah and I from Mumbai airport and our safe delivery to the Pet Friendly Hotel you had booked us into - collecting us the next morning for the vet appointment you had arranged to prepare Sarah for export to Cyprus and completing the endless paperwork involved , checking and double checking every aspect to make sure there were no problems - taking us to the wonderful boarding kennels in Thane and then finally shipping Sarah to Cyprus with constant communication which was SO important . And the care and interest you still show . Thank You All . You are Amazing - Extremely caring and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend youover and over
In fact please feel free to give my email address to any prospective clients who have questions, I will only be too happy to relate to them my experience with you.
Anupama - We are really sorry ! Just couldn't communicate with anyone as was terribly terribly tied up - settling down, X'mas and New Year in between and furnishing our flat.
Anyways - I had to make it possible to mail you at-least now as I wanted to inform you that I have given your contact details to our friends here - Have totally mesmerised them with my experience of your handling the shipment of our Pet and have told him that they can rest in peace with Furry Flyers handling the transportation of their pets.
I take this opportunity to wish You and your Family a bright, healthy and prosperous New Year not forgetting Hugs to our darling Banjo.
I got Troy when he was 29 days old, from then we laughed together, cried together… moved to places, cities. Troy made me realize what I am, and then when he was 4 years old I had this opportunity to travel to US for work. I was really puzzled to the thought that how can I take Troy with me, accepting a life without Troy is tough than ‘Cyanide’ for me.
Then Google showed me the door to the Angels Den – The Furry Flyers, Anupama from Furry Flyers relieved me of all my worries about life together with Troy. I moved to USA California on Sept 4th with my wife and baby son, Troy was in care of a kennel in Pune with his travel scheduled on Sept 28th. I felt nervous unnecessarily, but as the days went I was getting news about Troy’s travel and how efficiently the Furry Flyers team handled the whole process.
Finally the day came, and I met Troy hale and hearty at San Francisco Airport, I guess both of us were in tears (joyful). It was like again I started to breathe, and all this possible because of – team “FURRY FLYERS”.
If you love your pet like you love yourself, Furry Flyers understands your heart.
My Family in USA California, my two sons and wife.
First of I wanted to say it was such a joy working with you and your company. I was extremely stressed out trying to get my little Indian dog home before I found you and had started to lose hope. You are very reassuring through the process and very knowledgeable and what needs to be done. Your prices are reasonable and when you found that I was on a strict budget you were able to help me with what ever you could to make sure I stayed with in budget. In addition to the above, the fact that you and your company speak English is a HUGE bonus for foreigners as that was an issue I ran into a lot before finding you.
Now that I have Kovai “Nai” home I am so very happy. He is the perfect dog. I not only recommend your services to other people who need to get their dogs travel arrangements but I also highly recommend Indian street dogs as pets. Everyone here in the states that have seen him think he is very handsome and smart.
If I had this whole ordeal to do over again Furry Flyers would be my first and only call!!!
This is to say Thank you to you and the Furry Flyers team for helping me bring Sasha from Madagascar to Mumbai!It would have been impossible without your help and support.And I must admit in this whole process I learnt a lot of things from a pet lover like you!Will always remember what you said,about you understanding pets more than human beings!Could not have found a better person for Sasha!
Will also always be grateful to Furry Flyers for keeping up with every word they have committed to me in terms of their services.I got more than what I expected.Will always suggest you guys to all my friends.
I would like to convey my SpeciaL thanks to you guys for helping us out in every possible way for our pet.! We have greatly appreciated your support and we would do business with you again in the future and give your reference to people who want to do the same. Our pet is doing well in India and seems to be enjoying India.
Many thanks for taking my call. As indicated, I am worried about my pet being shipped to Mumbai and getting stuck in Mumbai without food, water, etc. I now understand that you will personally receive the dog and put him the same day on the flight to Baroda after ensuring that he has received water and food.
We have reached safely and Cleo and Penny are in quarantine in South Africa until next Wednesday. I would like to thank you for all your help, friendliness and professional service in sending my pets home, we really appreciate everything.
Have a nice week and I hope your business goes from strenght to strenght. Luv- Louise Coetzer, Cleo and Penny. SOUTH AFRICA
When I decided to send Tommy from Goa to the USA, I was very worried he would not be able to cope with the journey.
Tommy is a street dog I adopted in Goa, who had only been in a car twice and had never been away from the little he knew of the world.
Your with all the pre-travel assistance and information was very accurate and easy to understand.
Upon transit in Mumbai, you took the best care of my Tommy and made sure that he was OK and safe with you and your staff. He arrived in New York after this 2 day long journey looking fit and healthy.
I couldn't think of a better person to trust my pet with during this long journey.
Your support and professional way of handling all matters, made this big journey very easy for me and Tommy.
What can we say ...a big big . thank for all !!! as you can see Kyra is very happy and she feel very nice
the most important thing is .... our home is where our heart is ... and Kyra knows it .
once more thank you very much .
Katia Max and Kyra
Would like to say a big thank you for your exceptional service provided by you and your company in bringing our dog, Nayla, from the USA to Mumbai.
The prompt manner in which all the document were obtained and the handling of Nayla at the Mumbai airport,especially the handling of Nayla at the Mumbai airport,especially the continuous updates via
SMS,whilst Nayla was in the cargo area, really impressed us..we were extremely relieved and happy to see that our beloved dog was in great shape. You were always available on the phone..no matter what time it was in Mumbai,you always took our calls.
Hope the wound that Leo gave you has healed.
We are gradually settling in Dubai. Leo still does not leave me for a minute. Follows me everywhere. I am also not forcing things on him, let him take his own time to build up the confidence that I will once again not leave him with new faces. Anupama, I am so glad that I found you on the net. It was just by chance that it happened. And when I spoke to you, I felt confident that Leo would be in very safe hands and I can totally and completely rely on you with my sweetheart. All his paper work for his move from Toronto to Mumbai was done on time and
efficiently and so was his move from Mumbai to Dubai was well taken care of. Thank you so much for all the effort and the confidence that you build in me and making this long move for Leo and my family so easy. I will surely recommend you to all whom I know.
Thank you once again for all the help, Take care.
Sunita Mathur, DUBAI (UAE)
Little Gunner is HERE! He's really here! Thank you guys so much! I've decided that Gunner is going to be Raj now. I have a horse named Queen, another dog named Jack, and now I have a dog named Raj (King)! He has learned how to "sit" and "lay down" so far.I have taken him on 2 runs, and he LOVES it! My dog Jack is a bit fat, and it really shows when he's next to Raj! Raj can run for EVER it seems like! He's such a good little dog. Here are some pictures of him and his new home so far. The hairy dog is my other dog Jack. Jack's feelings were hurt when Raj first got here because he likes to be the center of attention, but they've gotten along since the beginning.
Thanks for the great care you took of Amore. She has reached Oman safely and looks totally fine.
Thank you once again for the handling both on the domestic front as well as her International relocation.
Just a quick email to advise that our girlfriend VARGA has safely arrived in the Netherlands (Holland).
This morning we got a warm welcome from VARGA on Schiphol Airport. The check by the vet was done, customs clearance was easy, and than we had the approval to go home.
First thing we did was to take her out in a forest near Schiphol airport and she was smelling all different things and she did what all dogs do...
Than we travelled for 1 1/2 hour home, where she was warmly welcomed by our 2 cats.
That relationship will grow slowly we believe and we will see how it works out, the first hello was not aggressive so we are positive about that.
For now as it is also my birthday today, I only want to say once agian a BIG THANKS to you. Also from VARGA !
As you will see, I am doing well in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. I found a warm welcome and am adjusting fine with all my friends in the park and beautifull forrest near the city. I have opened an email account and thought it would be nice to also place some Video's on to You Tube.
Thus this one is the first. Of course typing was a little difficult but Willem and Gerard helped me sometimes.
Would like to say a big thank you for your exceptional service provided by you and your company in bringing our dog, Nayla, from the USA to Mumbai.
The prompt manner in which all the document were obtained and the I will definitely recommend your services to my friends. Over and above that, your website is an excellent source of information. Congrats and keep up the good work.
Rohan Parikh Director,
The Natvar Parikh Group,
This is from Neil and Ramu, who you helped export from Mumbai to UK 6 months ago.
I hope you are all very well. Looking back at my two years in India I still feel privileged to have met you. The time Ramu and I spent in Mumbai was very special and I keep remembering how well you looked after us, especially you taking us to the best spot in Mumbai and Ramu and I jogging all round that area.
Ramu is just out of quarantine.
I have visited Ramu daily, realising very late in the day I should be taking her fresh food not commercial pet food. She has a course of weekly evening dog obedience lessons booked for when she leaves, and Ramu and I have entries for two countryside jogging events.
Anupama and Vinayak - your professionalism, hard work and also kindnesses really remembered by me.
I am happy to inform you that Benji arrived safely at Mumbai airport from the US. He was a bit disoriented but he is coming along well. The documentation was perfect and we had no problems at all to get the Customs clearance. I and Milind want to thank you for the excellent yet very personal help that you provided.
At this end, Pet Vacations provided us with excellent service. I am marking a copy of this message to Anupama Vinayak ( The lady who owns and runs the company). You may get in touch with her if you do
any business with India in future. When you write to her she can provide you with all her business coordinates.
Many thanks again for you help and I was very happy with your service. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my Mumbai friends who are shipping a pet. We were also fortunate to have chosen to travel on Singapore Airlines as they were also very professional from start to finish.Oreo seems to be fine and is eating well but he has been "crying" abit during the nights but I think that he is just abit disorientated and jet lagged and so last night we left a light on for him and he was better.
We were out and about yesterday and I was pleased to see that there is a vet,s office close by and they seemed very nice and it was very clean and friendly.
Thanks again and all the best for continued success,
Anna and Oreo.
Our experience on relocating our 3 year old pet labrador from Mumbai to Chennai was a very positive one. We think that taking the cage a few days before the final departure helped put our pet at ease. We would give him all his snacks in the cage and then the same was not so alien anymore. We spoke to the airline (jet airways)beforehand and sounded them off accordingly. He was taken in on a leash all excited into the domestic airport. We put his mattress inside the cage. The airline was quick in weighing him with the cage and almost immediately he was escorted to the airplane. He did voice his displeasure in loud tones to everyones amusement and curiosity.
Once he realised that we were not around he sobered down and guess enjoyed the flight. My son wanted to know whether the oxygen mask would drop down for him too in case of an emergency. I of course replied in the affirmative.
When we reached Chennai airport Coco was first to come out on the conveyor belt all calm and curious. But no sooner than he saw us he barked (I would like to think that it was with joy and relief). Once we were out of the airport we let him loose and welcomed him to the sight and smells of his new home.
Your service was very prompt. Your rep was at the airport to recieve the empty cage that avoided me lugging it all over the place. In my opinion The cost was very reasonable.
My name is Urjita Kashalikar. I am currently in London with my husband. I have three dogs ( 1 male boxer, 1 male labrador, 1 female boxer). All three are within the age group 1-2 years. I have the up to date vaccination papers for all three of them. I have registration papers for only 2 of them as the female boxer is adopted. I have made all the quarantine arrangements in London and have already couriered the import licence to my address in Thane, Mumbai, India. My dogs are currently put up in a kennel on the outskirts of Thane. I am looking for someone who can help transport them to London Heathrow by arranging their crates, export documenation, air ticket as cargo, picking them from the kennel in mumbai and putting them on a flight to UK. I need to get them here on a direct flight which lands at heathrow during the day upto 6pm preferably by the 19th.
We would like to thank you Petvacations for all their help regarding import of our pet dog and 2 cats from Germany to India. The support was remarkable, everything was done immediately. All questions, worries were answered in a professional way. We could call them 24 hrs per day for any help. The quarantine issues were arranged very quickly, so that the animals would not suffer at all.
We felt more than welcome and would like to thank you very much.
Thanks for your quick response. For the first time, I get a clear message on what actually needs to be done. I was in touch with some Bangalore based movers who had different procedures and different documentation requirements as well.
I will talk to my girl friend in Germany later today and we will get back to you. She is quite concerned about how the animals will be handled and if everything in terms of documentation is ok. We might call you together to clarify certain things. Hope to talk to you later today.
Thanks again and regards,
Thank you for you clear response. After weeks working on this move, I about gave up. The clearing agents and others were never helpful and always an enormous amount which I cannot afford. I have been to India each year since 1984 and look forword to spending longer amounts of time. I will certainly use your assistance as soon as my plans are confirmed here. My destination is either Bangalore or Chennai if this is helpful. Perhaps Chennai is easier I don't know. I will select an airline most reasonable. I cannot thank you enough and will recommend you to all my friends both here and in India.
Here is my feedback to the most daring thing i have done so far - shipping my dog from Mumbai to Goa. It was a tense activity physically and most importantly mentally. Priority number one was, in what container to sent it in.
Anupama, has been very helpful in with this issue ... also an addition help on cost. Excellent service, when ever I have called the call was attended.
All in all i am happy with the service.
Just a note to confirm Binkie and Gabbie reached home safely and both look incredibly content and happy. Thank you so much for all your assistance in helping them get home.It looks as though the journey was relatively easy for them and they have both long since forgotten it. Couldn't thank you enough for everything.
Having telephoned to convey our thanks for the safe and happy arrival of our pet whippet
Jasmine, we would like to confirm in writing our gratitude, with an especial ‘thank you’
to Mrs. Anupama Vinayak and Manisha, for the service they provided when our puppy
arrived at Mumbai Airport, having already travelled all the way that same day from
Heathrow Airport, London! A long, long journey, for such a tiny scrap only five months
They gave practical advice on the best way to then get her home to us in Goa, with the
least possible stress on the animal, which was to fly both her and Nick on the same flight
this evening. Everything was accomplished in the same day, and we were all re-united at
Goa, delighted to see our pet arrive happy and in spotless condition.
So thank you again, for taking care of both little Jasmine, and also Nick, who had gone to
collect her, it was a very worrying time for us humans as well! Paul our son had organized
everything from the U.K. end, and said how clearly and easily understood everything had
We would firmly recommend your company to anyone contemplating travelling their
animals, and tell them they can leave their pets in your safe hands with complete
