Thank you!!!!

  • Dogs shipped from Hawaii to Texas

    Hi Bridget, I wanted to reach out and personally thank you for helping us move both Buster and Lola from Hawaii. We were a bit worried about moving our older Labrador and our Frenchie with her potential for respiratory issues. We were very impressed by your attention to detail and follow up. My family in Hawaii were also very comforted with your calls in keeping them in the loop about the dogs departure. All went well and the two dogs were frolicking around our yard last night!

    I would recommend you with highest regard and without ANY reservations to any of my friends and family who are moving their pets to and from Hawaii. You have a great business and appreciate your thoughtfulness, follow through, detailed explanations, and very smooth transaction. Congratulations on a job well done!"

    Kind regards,
    The Marr family

  • Just wanted to thank everyone at Happy Tails for getting our baby from Boston to our new home in Arizona.
    I highly recommend this company and could not imagine trying to do this on our own. 
    We were very anxious about getting Ava safely to Arizona and Happy Tails worked with us through the entire process and made sure Ava arrived safely.
    There was follow up every step of the way and when we picked Ava up in Arizona she was her normal spunky self. She is loving her new home and is fascinated by the mountains”.

    Thanks Again for Everything! Ava sends dog kisses.

  • They made it safe and sound, they actually did very well! They were not too freaked out when I opened their crates at the new apartment and were friendly and upbeat. I tried to take some pictures to at least show they are doing well. The black cat, Olive, would not hold still!
