    Just wanted to say thank you for all your help getting Blue to the UK. Everything went perfectly from his paperwork to his drop off to the pick-up.

    He was a very happy boy when we picked him up and his customs clearance process was very smooth.

Meet Happy Tails Travel, Inc.

Hi! I'm Bridget and I started Happy Tails Travel, Inc. because I value animals and believe in the pleasure and healing they bring to their owners and everyone with whom they have contact.

Because of today’s transient society and love and devotion to their animals, many people require assistance with moving their faithful four-footed family members. I enjoy the challenge of coordinating a smooth move!

I have always loved animals and today my husband and I share in the care of our parrot, one cockatiel, and five cats.

I have been a registered nurse since 1986, and have lived in Tucson since 1990.

Having a business where I can help pets and families reunite through relocations and adoptions by air with care has brought joy to my life!

“I have grown up around pets. We have had dogs and cats in my house ever since I was a child. I consider my furry friends to be a part of my family, and could never imagine leaving them behind. It is so rewarding to get to work with people to keep their furry families together!” - Kat Bond



"All my life I have always considered my pets to be my furry family members and I couldn't imagine moving and  my dogs not being right there with me. So it is awesome that I get to help keep families together with their four legged family members."- Shay Jones-Needham


I love animals and have been passionate about them my whole life! I consider my dog Bindi to be my fur baby and a part of my family. I'm so glad to have a job where I get to put my love of animals to work!
