I am moving! What about my best friend? – International pet transport

For more details, please fill in the form

Your life is about to change in a big way. You’re moving across the country or to a new country for a new job, new love, a very different and more rewarding lifestyle. What about your best friend who waited patiently every day for you to come home? Who was happy to see you and rarely judged you and genuinely missed you? You or your children considered your dog, cat, bird, or other furry animal an extra brother or sister.

Your new life will be challenging enough without some of your closest friends and relatives (parents, siblings and children) next door to you. Why add to the painful goodbye for you and your furry family members. If they are healthy you should bring them with you on your new adventure.

What factors should you consider moving with pets?


Talk to your vet about your pets’ health and ability to handle the trip, and the new environment you are moving to. Cats and dogs and some other animals should anyway get an annual checkup and vaccinations so this is a good time. If your decision to move comes in between these annual visits another checkup is helpful. Older pets may need a bloodwork, blood pressure check and other kids of tests.


Will you be renting or buying? Does your landlord allow pets? Do your building bylaws have any restrictions on types or number?

What Kind of Pet and How Many

Do you have cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, fish or other exotic pets like snakes, turtles and other reptiles? Each country and area has different rules varying by type and number of animals.


Some countries call pets family, others—food! Some places require leashes and muzzles; others may have stray animals running wild, not vaccinated and a threat to your loved one.

Quarantine Rules

Rules for moving with pets vary by country, locale and type of animal. An animal arriving without the proper papers and vaccinations may be quarantined or even refused entry so check before you bring your animal.


Employers sometimes subsidize some of your pet relocation costs when they relocate you.


Your loved one will experience the change but usually will be happier being part of your new life than left behind with another family. You can ease the transition by taking your pet when you move or temporarily leave her/him with someone you trust while you find and prepare the best place for all of you and then send for your loyal family member.

A very big thank you to Ahava and all the team for bringing our beloved fur family from Australia to Israel (2 cats and 2 dogs). It was a complex job given the mixed breeds of our rescue pups and the effects of covid on the options available in the pet transport industry. Ahava was so professional and patient and went beyond the call of duty to assist us. Her communication was prompt and informative. Her knowledge and professionalism were exceptional. We will definitely use them should we need to return to Oz. Thank you, Ahava!!!

The service on Terminal4Pets is highly recommended. I brought my dog from the UAE to Israel without any problems thanks to Ahava's help throughout the whole process and paperwork.

Excellent service! Amazing 24/7 support from Ahava! The most complicated flight for two cats to New Zealand couldn't be possible without her assistance. Highly recommended team!

Amazing service from Ahava and the team. Moving a dog from Israel to the UK is particularly complicated (and my situation involved various delays and pauses) but they were happy to wait for as long as needed until we were ready to move. They got everything in order, they were always responsive (including at 11pm when I landed in Paris and had a question) and had great communication with my vet also. Highly recommend for the most stress free possible experience !

My experience with Terminal4Pets was unbelievably easy and efficient. I lived in Israel for a few years and had experienced many different approaches to business and customer service - mostly less that standard. T4P were amazingly responsive and treated my dog so very well. They worked with the kennel that he was staying at and got him to the US without ANY issues. When the airline gave them a challenge, T4P quickly approached me with reasonable options that helped me stay in control of my dog's itinerary and get him here quickly. I highly recommend them!
