"Good to have our Diesel back. He is doing well, trying to adjust to the Houston heat. Tina was great! It all worked out better than I had anticipated. Thanks."

Amy

"We are mightily pleased with the way Satu was 'handled' and she arrived in very good spirits indeed. I am writing this from the office and greatly looking forward to going/coming home and be greeted by an overly excited little dog."

Angela and Ross

"I really want to thank you for the excellent service and support you have given me during this difficult transition period. Robin arrived extremely well and my daughters were delighted to see Robin back with us. Felix was phenomenal too and thanks to him we were able to get all the documents ready to have Robin with us faster. Please pass on my thank you to him as well."

Victor

"Thank you again for all of your help. We were thrilled with the service you provided. Left to our own devices, I would have had no idea how to get our little friends over. You made it so painless and easy. From coordinating vaccinations and pick up in the states, to en route updates. Everything was completely seamless. And our cats are doing great. They didn’t take long to adjust at all, so I’m sure they had a good trip. We’re so glad to have them here with us and thank you so much for all your help!"

Genevieve

"Pooh arrived safe and sound last night in Cambridge. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your help in getting her there. Best to you this holiday season."

Dirk

"Well all went smoothly and we received Charlie at 3am this morning. He was in great condition and his usual sprite self! Thank you so much for making the process of his transportation as easy as possible. We are delighted to have him here with us."

Natalie

"Callie was fine after her first airplane ride and was happy to see me. I am thrilled that she is finally here. She is busily sniffing everything in our new home.

I want you to know how appreciative I am for the excellent job that you and Starwood did getting my little girl here to me. You made the process painless and it is obvious that you and the staff at Starwood really care about people’s pets. Thank you so much. I will definitely refer Starwood to any friends that might need their pets transported across the country or internationally. "

Maria

"Samantha is doing quite well. We were very pleased with your service. She is a very important member of our family and we were very stressed about her being on such a long flight. Thanks to all the personal assistance you gave me to prepare her, everything turned out better than we could have expected.

If we should ever need to fly out pet again, I can’t imagine using any other service. I would highly recommend Starwood Animal Transport to everyone!"

Robin

"Duke and Lana are at their new home now. They are both happy but tired! Glad they were well taken care of by all of you. Thank you for your hard work and assistance through the whole process."
