We have brought Hugo home finally on last Sat. He is settling in very well.   Thank you very much for your services, which have been very professional and prompt. I would certainly recommend my friends to use Jetpets to bring pets to and from Australia.   Thanks again for all your help, Jasmine, which is very much appreciated.   Kherk
Sydney to Manila, Philippines
Justin Robart, who handled my dogs trip from Sydney to Manila took care of the whole process brilliantly, taking my stress levels from 200% to 10%. Everything was completed in a very short time and on time. Sarah, who picked my dog up, treated her beautifully and with care. Everything went well on the Australian side. I traveled with my dog and knew the Philippine side of customs, having sent two dogs up there a few years ago, was going to be a challenge, time consuming and frustrating. This is no reflection on Jetpets but just the way it works over there. Thankyou again for all your help Jetpets. It was well worth it.
Melbourne to , Hong Kong

Melbourne to , Hong Kong
I would highly recommend Jetpets to anyone and everyone who’s looking into relocating their fur babies. I’m one of those paranoid dog parent who was losing sleep months prior to Biscuit being relocated from Melbourne to Hongkong. But they made the entire process much more endurable for all of us. Extremely professional and prompt. Ready to answer and attend to all queries and requests even beyond their scope of work. A special shout out to Biljana, Aleesha and all the pet handlers for taking such great care of Biscuit during the entire process. We are very greatful to the entire team for being with us through this and I’m sure Biscuit who’s now back with us all safe and sound would wag his tail to it! Thanks again for all the efforts and the great work!
