The Internet is full of pet relocation companies that ship pets and offer pet travel services. Many are designed to steal money from the unsuspecting with promises of puppies and baby monkeys from remote locations for only a few hundred dollars. "You need to take caution when selecting a pet relocation service," said Anthony Denicker of AnimalsAway.com.

"It is very important for consumers to research and verify experience and reliability when selecting a pet relocation services company," said Denicker, "Ask all the questions you can come up with and get specific details so you can feel comfortable with who handles your precious pets. Research pet relocation companies to confirm their service offerings, local and world office locations and clientele/referrals to ensure you are not misled by false claims."

When transporting a pet overseas the animal is considered manifested cargo. Standard requirements needed for transporting an animal overseas are an original vaccination card, health certificate stamped by the veterinary authority in the country of origin, airway bill, and a copy of the import permit. All of these documents are required to fly with the animal.

Denicker said, "Consumers should be sure that they are comfortable and can confirm their pets are the main focus. When moving or purchasing a pet make sure to use a reputable pet shipper that has experience in the industry. You should not trust anyone not willing to have a conversation with you."

Pet insurance is another consideration to cover any potential veterinary costs, death and missing pet benefits, loss by theft or straying, and legal claims in case the animal causes injury, death or damages property. A quality pet relocation company should assist with all of the details.
