Testimonials

"Blake and Raven had a wonderful journey. I don't think the trip phased them in the least. They are happily settled and enjoying life in Georgia. Kenny did a wonderful job taking care of them both. He was very conscience and caring, and made sure they were fine before leaving.

Thank you for your service. I will definitely recommend your business to anyone needing to relocate their pet family. "

Susan

"You guys run a very professional operation and the people could not have been nicer. Thanks for organizing all this. Our puppy is finally home."

Carol

"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

"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

"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

Michelle

"Thanks to Starwood Animal Transport, our first experience moving our dog internationally was a very successful one! The communication throughout the entire process was prompt, clear and comforting. Kudos to Ross, Sherry and Nick for providing great customer service. I do believe that in the end, our dog had better care and travel arrangements than we did. I highly recommend Starwood and will certainly use them again in the future. "
