    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.

I'm so happy I found Happy Tails. I was in desperate need of getting my well behaved, crate trained, and sweet pit mix from NYC to Los Angeles. No airline would let me store as cargo, and I didn't know what to do. I spoke to a few competitors of Happy Tails and they were quoting me a very high number—Kim at Happy Tails quoted me something similar to them, but quickly responded with a huge price break if I would carpool my dog. It was a no-brainer on who the most efficient service would be—and no other company had offered me a carpool, even though I would have been open to it. About a week later, Aaron came to my apartment in NYC to pick up my dog. He picked her up right after lunch on Monday, and he was very flexible on what hours he could pick her up, which I appreciated. By Thursday, after dinner NYC time, my pet and best friend was in Los Angeles‐he made a ~42 hour drive without stops in 4.25 days!! He also took at least one photo a day and gave 2 text messages a day on my dog's well being. I highly, highly recommend this service and will happily speak one-on-one with anyone considering using Happy Tails. Amazing service.
