Moving Kona was super easy! We were worried about how our dog would fare during a long car ride but she did amazing with her driver, Julie. She updated us with cute pictures everyday. Overall, the process went really smoothly.

Leo and Guy are settling well in our new home. They love the freedom they have wandering in our backyard since it is fenced, unlike our former home.

Our driver, Robert was perfect! We loved following his route online and the videos he sent along the way.

It certainly takes special animal loving people to do what they do! We are so grateful for companies such as yours that offer such terrific service!!

Thank you again!

We are very happy with all the transportation process. We are really grateful we found you! Lovedy and Romeo had a really good time with Ken, he took very well care of them (even with Romeo that didn't show too many manners 😄)

Thank so much for bringing our babies to us.

Have a wonderful day!

I recently had my cats transported cross country from Nebraska to Arizona. I didn’t want to drive 20+ hours with two cats because I didn’t even want to drive myself 20+ hours. 

So I looked for transport options online. I found Happy Tails Travel and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Based upon your needs they will consult with you about whether air or ground transport is best. For me, ground transport seemed the best option. They paired me with a wonderful driver, who I chatted with ahead of time to get acquainted with and to share some information about my cats and their idiosyncrasies. 

Throughout the overnight trip, the driver sent really cute photos and kept me updated on my cats every few hours. I was never left wondering what might be happening or whether they were safe. 

The cats arrived safely and, while they are still in a little bit of shock about the whole moving thing, they are fine. 

If you ever need to move pets short or long distances and you don’t want to drive them, check out Happy Tails Travel. They are coincidentally based in Tucson, AZ, which I didn’t know at the time I booked with them.

All my best,

We are in the process of relocating and needed to move our fur babies to the new house. Working with Happy Tails was such a wonderful experience. From the beginning to the end the communication was fantastic. The drivers were always sending pictures and keeping us up to date with the travel. The cats are settling in nicely. We could not be happier with Happy Tails Travel and would recommend them to anyone.

Again, thank you for a stress-free experience!

Moving our two cats cross country with Happy Tails couldn't have been a better experience! From start to finish the communication was great and the process was simple. I had been very anxious about how we'd get two cats, a toddler, and all of our stuff from Seattle to NYC and it was a relief to have this part of the logistics go so smoothly - moving the cats was probably the least stressful part of the entire thing. I especially liked how communicative and helpful our driver, Aaron, was - he was in touch before the trip to advise us on the best crates and so we'd know who'd be looking after our cats on the road, and then sent frequent photos and updates while they traveled. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a stress-free way to move your pets!

It was our first time using this service. I was nervous because we haven’t been away from our puppies more than a day. Mia was our driver, and she was fantastic. As soon as I met her I felt the dogs would be very well taken care. She kept us updated with photos, videos and their location through the whole trip from CA to MI. I definitely recommend Happy Tails Travel.

I am very grateful for Shelbie and Cody at Happy Tails Travel. They ensured a seamless, easy relocation for my cat Moosi, from Tennessee to Delaware. I was able to track Cody while on the trip and was updated with pictures every few hours. Cody took great care of Moosi, and he arrived safe and sound and has since settled in well. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs to relocate their pet!

Thank you and Cody again for making this process an easy one!

Highly recommend Happy Tails for transporting your beloved pet safely and calmly. Kim made the setup process easy and accommodating when we had to change date last minute. Our two cats were driven by Ruben from Phoenix,AZ to Kansas City, MO in 2 days. Ruben was amazing, so kind and a great communicator. We had updates with photos all along the way and a link to track vehicle progress. My family members met Ruben for pickup and had the same experience as myself. My kitties were scared but Ruben understood and used a fear free approach. They continued eating daily and did not develop any medical issues. Kim stayed involved for assistance if needed and followed up to be sure everyone is settling in nicely. I could not be happier with the experience.

Worth every penny!

I needed to transfer my parents' cat from the Los Angeles area to my brother in the San Francisco area on short notice due to my parents' deteriorating health. Life was very busy, and I needed something simple where I was not responsible for all the details. Happy Tails was everything advertised. Kim understood my situation, explained the complete service, and found a driver right away. My driver Robert, contacted me immediately, was 100% professional and on time, and immediately put me at ease regarding Carolina's trip. It was a rare, ugly, rainy day in California for the trip, and he kept us updated on his progress the entire way. I would definitely recommend Happy Tails to anyone looking for top quality, safe, and easy pet transport.
