Pet relocation services

When moving to Mexico or vacationing in Mexico for extended periods, some people find that they need to ship a pet. Some other people decide to adopt pets in Mexico and have them shipped to the US or Canada or elsewhere in the world. We have compiled a list of reputable companies to refer you to. We recommend that you ask any company that you wish to deal with to speak with other satisfied clients they have in order to get the word directly from someone that has had a similar experience.

In Mexico, paperwork and shipping can be costly, time consuming and stressful. These companies can help alleviate much of the stress but the process can still be more than what you bargained for. Our best recommendation is that, if you cannot travel with your pet(s), you pay someone to accompany the pet and bring the pet into the country as if it were their pet, rather than shipping the pet as cargo. This alleviates much of the expense, time and worry about the process.

If you need to ship your pet, be sure to do your homework in terms of how many and what type of animals are allowed, the health certificates required, any restrictions, types of containers and other related information. Check with the airlines as they will have their own regulations which will be aside from or in addition to any import/export/health regulations.

Please note that we have not used these services ourselves and have compiled this information for your convenience.
