Yes. We even have our very own Pet Boarding facility for pre-flight boarding at reduced rates.

Is there anything I should know about?
There are several things useful to understand for anyone looking for pet transportation to move their pet overseas:
- Dogs travelling to Australia need Owners declaration of having lived in NZ since birth in New Zealand or since coming to New Zealand from Australia. Dogs from other countries require blood tests before travel.
- Cats and dogs travelling to UK and Ireland must be micro-chipped and be vaccinated for Rabies at least 21 days before entering UK. (new regs from 1 Jan 2012). For travel to most of Europe a Rabies vaccination is required at least 21 days before flight.
- We will work with you to ensure your pet’s journey through our pet couriers NZ services is safe and comfortable, from collection at your home or drop-off at our own Brookby Pet Lodge where we are well used to caring for cats and dogs with a big staff to ensure individual attention.
