What our Pet Relocation clients are saying

The GVC Global Pet Relocation team have helped transport more than 2,000 pets. Find out why our customers recommend us:


I just wanted to thank you very much for what you and GVC did to get Kitty safely back to the UK.  Everything went really, really well and Kitty is now very settled in her new home and trying to figure out what’s going on in the strange looking garden! Huge thanks once again and very best wishes

Paul De Jonghe

I thought I would send you some pics of our fur babes to show that they have settled down into their new home and following the transition from Cape Town to Abu Dhabi. Here is the 2 of them sitting on their flying crates staring out the window. I think Al Reef has new “neighbourhood watch” members 😁

Roxy & Harley
Indie’s relocation process was incredibly smooth and handled with professionalism by Mike, Katrin, Joanna and the team. Indie arrived back into the UK extremely relaxed and content and has settled very well. Extraordinary and a very different experience than her move out! I can’t rate or thank GVC enough.

Louise Arkley

I would like to thank you about your professional and efficient service to bring our cats from Alger to Abu Dhabi. Your advice to transit through Istanbul was the right way and today our cats are in good health with us. Thank you once again.

Michel Duchmann

Biscuit & Neige
The service was excellent from start to finish despite the fact that GVC were doing this during a global pandemic! My cats arrived safe and well and didn’t seem the slightest bit bothered by their very long journey – very happy 🙂

Jane Mcwhannell

Omar & Sharif
I am super happy with the relocation services as well as the normal services at the GVC! Always a very warm and professional care for my cat. I will miss your clinic, and hope I can find a good vet here for her. Thanks again so much for everything!!

Anna Clevestig

Roxy arrived late last night and is doing really well. Thankyou for everything you and everyone else at GVC did to ensure that Roxy stayed healthy and happy and safely returned to us here in SA. Words cannot express our gratitude.

Elize Lourens

My 2 cats travelled from Abu Dhabi to Toronto Canada using GVC’s pet relocation services. All documents, certifications, health checks and required vet visits were handled in an easy, straightforward way. My pets had no troubles exiting Abu Dhabi or entering Canada. They passed through customs and immigration just as easily as I did. Thank you GVC.

Liz Powell

Beanie & Zataar
GVC is the best vet I have ever had. My experience with my weird little cat was always wonderful. All staff!! From reception to Doctors are amazing with me and my pet. Of course, when the time came to leave the UAE the relocation service was no different. Joanna was so patient and understanding, explained everything many times. I am ever so grateful for all your support!

Nicole Quartin Farinha

I wanted to draw breath and thank you for your support during repatriation to the UK.  It was handled beautifully. The Missus and Princess did well on their flight and arrived at Animal Inn ‘singing’ all the way from Heathrow according to Jill’s husband. I brought them to our temporary home 2 weeks ago and they have settled here well, except for managing the colder weather.  They sit at the window wishing to go out.  I’m sure if they did, they’d be back double quick!

Tracey Warren

Missus and Princess
The German Veterinary Clinic Pet Relocation team are real heroes! At three days’ notice, I had to relocate back to Finland, and I was terrified that my German Spitz, Nory, wouldn’t be able to return with me. Not only did Joanna efficiently organise all the necessary proceedings and paperwork, she also remained calm and professional, which put both Nory and me at ease. I don’t think we would have both made it back without all of her help. I can’t thank her enough for all the work she did!


Sirkku Pentti

Allow me to take this opportunity of thanking you, Dr Gokcen, Amir and all your other colleagues at GVC as well as Nick and Val at Starwood, for the care and attention….and indeed affection, shown to Bertie and Milo during their time with you and the journey to their new home in the UK. From the photographs sent while in your care, it was clear that the relocation process was far less stressful for the boys than it was for their owners. 

The relocation process is one that GVC and Starwood will have carried out countless times before; however, as owners not being treated as persons simply to be invoiced and the boys not treated as goods to be shipped,  was very much appreciated and l cannot thank you enough for that.

Dennis Brand

Bertie & Milo

Special thank you to Joanna Cole, for all the organisation she provided to ensure my dog Mimi arrived safely in the UK all the way from the UAE. She was kind and friendly, reassuring and made the process easy. Thank you xx

Finley and Stella arrived perfectly last night, and we are so grateful to have them back with us. Our family is now complete! Thank you for all the wonderful work and for caring so well for our babies!

All the best.

Melissa Nelson

Finley & Stella
Just a quick note to say thank you. Slider is settling very well in New Zealand. He is out of quarantine now and exploring his new home. He loves adventuring outside and the change in temperature is not bothering him too much. So, thanks again, you made the whole process very stress free.

Eleanor Clark

Both boys arrived safe and sound, Charlie wasn’t sure what rain was.

Overall the German Vet offers a fantastic service from grooming our dogs, their vet care and now relocation back to Scotland. Cannot fault anything. They really looked after our Maltese fur babies

Stephen Trainer

Charlie & Louie
Jasper has settled in well with my niece and nephew and is being spoiled rotten 😊.  He settled almost straight away, and everything went smoothly.  Miss him but my niece sends me pics and videos daily.
Thank you and everyone at GVC for your excellent service and the wonderful care you all provided for my Jasper. I cannot thank you and recommend you enough. 

Mary Fotiadis

I am so impressed and grateful to find out you and your team really follow-up the progress of Garfield till the end of his journey home. No words that I can said than THANKYOU a million to you and your team in Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur for the safe arrival of Garfield.
I am flying tomorrow night to visit him and coming back on Saturday for work.

Thank you again.

Aziah Binti Abdullah

I always had the best experience with GVC, and the relocation of my pets could not be handled in a better way. My pets arrived stressed free to their destination because they were loved and cared during all the days they stayed boarded and the travel arrangements were made in Avery smooth way thinking always in the comfort and safety of my pets and I was informed at all times with the details and flights and connections. Thank you! There is no better vet clinic I had ever used in my life

Aisha Alexande

Snowball & Ninja
Thank you so much for all your help, for your patience and understanding. We’ve arrived safely with Curdee. Everything went well. I’ve attached her pictures. The anxiety pills really helped her calm down and adjust to everything. Thank you for that.

I would definitely recommend your services to my friends when they relocate with their pets.


Chelsea Rayos

The service was excellent. The paperwork was spot on and we had no problem at check in or on arrival in France. We had to pick up our pet cats though in Paris and check them in again for our next leg of the journey in France. The staff were helpful at the airport and we were able to clean the pets cage a bit before the next leg. The pets are now settled in France and their microchip registered on the French system. Thank you so much for all your help and your very prompt reply with all queries. We thought your service was so friendly and professional. One of the best services we have had in Abu Dhabi

Sanders & Shadow
Hi Joanna, Rory, Amir and GVC team,
Thank you so much for managing our fur babies safe transport to the US.
They all arrived and are adjusting after their long journey. We were worried about them all during the trip, but mostly Fang, due to his age. Thankfully they are all okay and in good hands with my family.
You made this as stress-free as possible, and we really appreciate that you got them there safely, and managed the process from A to Z.
Moving from the UAE after 12 years makes this a chaotic, busy time, and we are so happy that we didn’t have to think about all the details of pet transport, on top of everything else.

Joanna Cole was a key player in arranging my two tortoises, “my babies”, journey back home. This was an arduous task and took ten and a half months to coordinate. Joanna remained focussed and as a result of her brilliance and perseverance, Tim and Sim are now safely back with me.
Joanna is undoubtedly an invaluable asset to the GVC and offers tremendous support to her clients. Many thanks, Joanna for arranging Tim and Sim’s journey back home. We would never have been able to do this without you!
I am eternally grateful to GVC for bringing Tim and Sim home. Thank you for your commitment, dedication, compassion and your excellence.

Anyone weighing options for pet relocation need look no further than German Vet Clinic. I was extremely nervous about moving to Florida with my cats. Not only did Joanna put me at ease, she made what would have been a complicated process
streamlined and simple due to her experience and expertise. Thanks to her efforts my cats arrived in Florida, safely. The US Customs Officer reviewing their paperwork even made a point to compliment German Vet Clinic for how well the documentation had been compiled and presented.

Since my cats’ health and wellbeing was contingent upon them being able to enter the US(after such a long flight) without delay, I’m so glad that I chose German Vet Clinic. They offer a great value for what I consider to be an invaluable service.
