Happy Tails Alerts


    We love helping pets have a smooth move and want to help you too!

    At this time, generic e-mail inquiries and replies to Pet Travel Form submissions are taking about 3 business days from the time they are received. Priority goes to existing clients and those traveling the soonest.

    Due to our existing clients and transport schedule, at this time we are booking ground transports at least 30 days out from the date a signed contract is received, and we require at least 15 business days to accommodate domestic air travel, from the date a signed contract is received. 

    We regret to inform you that all international services are currently suspended.

    Air options remain limited as airlines work on resuming services as usual. Air travel becomes more difficult for pets to fly as temperatures must be below 80° Fahrenheit at all cities on a pet’s itinerary and many places in the country are already experiencing warmer temperatures.

    If you are interested in working with us, the quickest way to receive a response is to fill out our Pet Travel Form.  It will provide us with the additional details we need to see how we can best assist you.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to working with you!


Popeye is really enjoying himself. He just looks very happy and comfortable being an island dog. The first day he was here we went to the beach and if he could talk I would bet he way saying “THIS PLACE IS SO COOL! THANK YOU FOR BRINGING ME HERE!!!” You helped make his trip very stress free and easy. I really appreciated the constant updates, immediately responses and hard work on your end. I felt confident the trip was going to be easy from day one having you on the case. Thank you so much for everything. You and your team really do a great job for people and pets that need help.

Happy Tails did an excellent job transporting my high anxiety dog from California to Oregon as part of our family move.  Every detail was meticulously seen to, and the driver, Mia, went above and beyond to ensure that Little Joe was safe, happy and loved throughout the journey.  She was delayed due to weather, but communicated frequently and sent pictures to set my mind at ease that he was safe and comfortable and well cared for.  I highly recommend this service as a way to get your pet to its new home.

The kitties are happy in their new private room and get lots of lovin’ from all of us, especially our little grandkids. Here is a pic of Smokey Lonesome and one of beautiful Bianca- she’s winking and trying to tell you she had a fabulous trip from KY to NH! Oliver was bring camera shy.  Thank you so much for the great service you provided. It was a huge relief to have the cats taken care of so well. We certainly will use your services again if needed, and of course will recommend Happy Tails!

Hi Bridget, thank you for the incredible amount of work you and your staff have done towards making the shipping of the two pups to Europe a reality. Now they are gaining weight and enjoying their new home. I have heard from Linda who says how thoroughly pleased she is with the soundness, temperament and quality of the two pups.Thank you again for seeing this through from initial contact to a satisfactory ending for all.

Happy Tails Travel was such a huge peace of mind for me during this pretty stressful move. Kaya arrived in Glasgow with no problems, and was so happy to be reunited with us. They answered dozens of questions to ease my anxious mind and made this process so much easier on me.I can't thank you enough! 

We are settling in nicely, and Kaya LOVES her new home and exploring all the beautiful scenery every day! 

Thanks again for all your help,

Circe is settling in well in our new home thanks to Happy Tails Travel, Inc. They handled everything and guided me every step of the way. It was a very seamless and stress-free process. I was especially concerned because she's 19-years-old and was traveling from Chicago to Seattle, but Happy Tails got her to me safely.

Thank you so much Happy Tails Travel & Kim!

My family and I were moving to LA and so we needed to fly our labradoodle, Emma. We were moving from Miami and with all the temperature restrictions for flying pets in hot temperatures, we knew that it would be tricky. The folks at Happy Tails were great! They booked Emma on a flight and kept us updated on the temperatures. At the last minute, the temperature soared past 85 degrees and the airport folks wouldn't let Emma on the flight. There were no other flights out in the next 24 hours and my family and I were scheduled on our own flights early the next morning. We were freaking out! Kim, at Happy Trails organized for Emma to be picked up in Miami and driven to Orlando, where she found a flight leaving very early in the morning for LA. She saved us a ton of aggravation! And now Emma is a California dog;) Thanks, Happy Tails!

Our return was a breeze and we settled back into our home life quickly. Pamela was a huge help and made our departure and return so pleasant - thank you again for recommending her to us! The whole process with Happy Tails Travel was so easy on my end and made our travels stress-free. Both times I picked up Moose from the flights he was safe and sound with his tail wagging. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that he was safe and happy throughout our travels. It means the world. 

Thank you so much for everything you did to help us, we are so appreciative. We will not hesitate to use you guys again for any future travels!

  • Harley dog shipped from Tucson, AZ to Annapolis, MD

    Thank you soooo much... Harley arrived at the cargo dock about 12:30am, actually sooner than I expected. He was so happy to see me, and even more excited when I got him to Mom. I woke her at about 1:30am; I think she thought she was dreaming... He looked fantastic.

    They are really enjoying each other and I couldn't have done it without you! Again thanks... you've made my Mom very happy!

  • socks the dog shipped from Hilo, HI to Chattanooga, TN

    After requesting several “agents” for their services and prices to get my pet relocated from Hawaii to GA, the only one that really stood out was Bridget with her personal touch, care and expert service. Thank you Bridget, from the bottom of my heart, for being the instrument re-uniting Socks with me here on the mainland!

    You booked handled all my questions professionally on both ends, here on the mainland as well on the Big Island with my friend John Dodd who kindly took Socks to the airport in Hilo. Socks traveled from Hilo Hawaii to Atlanta GA with Delta, with out any delays or hiccups. Their staff was most helpful in both giving me directions to this, the biggest airport in the USA, in Atlanta as well helping getting Socks the moment I arrived at the terminal.

    Thanks again Bridget, I will make sure to tell other about your services!

  • jackie the dog

    Aloha Bridget, We can't thank you enough for all your hard work, compassion and professionalism in making Jackie's long journey from Florida to Kauai a safe and smooth experience. As you know, we moved here 2 months before her and we were especially anxious about her travel because of her history of abuse prior joining our family 4 years ago.You not only coordinated every detail of the move, you went out of your way to notify handlers all along the route of her history to insure that her trip was as stress free as possible.  It was obvious when she arrived- on time, calm and delighted to see us- that you had done an outstanding job of seeing that our sweet girl was treated the utmost gentleness and TLC. With all the regulations required to bring a pet to Hawaii, we could never have accomplished this so successfully on our own.

    Jackie adjusted immediately to her Kauai home. She has only been here one week but has already made many friends (4 legged and 2 legged) and loves going on long walks. We have yet to introduce her to the beach, but will do that soon.

    I would recommend you without the slightest hesitation to anyone relocating a pet.  Entrusting you with our precious girl's move was the best decision we ever made. The peace of mind you gave us meant the world to us.

    Tarzan was an angel during his travel... and did fabulous! We got to Amsterdam without a hitch, and then they flew through my paperwork - I don't think the guy even knew what was required. He flipped through the documents - he didn't even ask for the Home Again document - and waved me on through. Tarzan's been pretty clingy the first few days, and he can't quite find the right spot to go potty (he's used to grass and there are very few patches of that here!) but he's starting to return to his own self. Thankfully!! Thanks again for all your help and instructions - you made it easy as pie!

  • Pet Travel Arrangments

    Just a note to say how much...
    myself, my husband, and my parents greatly appreciate your hard work in coordinating all of Lucie’s travel arrangements! It was so emotional for me to drop her off to fly from San Francisco to Philadelphia, but all of your details-oriented organization and personal reassurance made the process as smooth as it could be! Also, when her trip was cancelled by United, your immediate, “on-the-spot” planning of a flight on Continental saved me immense time and effort (not to mention the sheer emotion of saying goodbye!) in not having to repeat the drop-off process the next day. I would highly recommend your pet travel services to anyone considering assistance with relocating their pet. With a baby at home, it was a life-saver to have your expertise, detailed checklists, and the full paperwork delivered right to my door! Thank you for making Lucie’s home relocation such a positive experience! With best wishes,

  • Multi Pet Relocation and Shipping

    I really appreciated your pet travel services.
    If it were not for your help, I don't know what I could have done. I'd probably would have had to board them and then drive back to NC to transport them to my new home in TX. It was great that you could handle all of my five pets at once.

    Although I did not make it clear that I myself wouldn't be transporting my pets to the airport, you took care of that matter immediately and had someone do it the very next day. Bobby, Sparky, Fluffy, Tux and Taffy all looked fine and happy when I went to visit them after their flight from NC to TX. The kennel you recommended (where they remained boarded until my home was ready) treated them well and they always looked good whenever I visited them there.

    Thank you for caring about animals and for providing this much needed service! I would certainly recommend your service to anyone looking for pet transportation.

    Dear HTT,
    In October of 2002, we relocated for a two year assignment in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. I was horrified at the thought of shipping my dog so far away, and had no idea how to proceed.

    The folks at Happy Tails were professional, courteous and very sympathetic to our needs and the safety of our dog, Guinness.  I had interviewed many different animal handling companies, but Happy Tails Travel was by far the best and only logical choice for us. I will recommend you to anyone I know who is relocating a pet.

    Thank you for taking care of us at such a hectic time.

  • Pet Shipping Abroad and Overseas

    Dear Bridget,
    I was truly impressed with the professional approach Happy Tails gave to me and Casper.
    They pulled out all the stops after I contacted them to arrange a flight from the USA to the UK and got me the best deal possible. If it had not been for Happy Tails I would have either had to leave my dog behind or had him put to sleep and neither of these two options were acceptable to me.

    The staff did their utmost... when I emailed or called asking what was going on or if there had been any progess - they were always happy to help and give me advice. I don't plan on taking Casper abroad again, but if I do, then I would certainly use Happy Tails!

    She and my older Jack Russell, Wiley, have become great playmates and friends. She is happy, healthy, and very friendly. I named her Curly Q because of her curly tail. She seemed to respond to the name more than to "Brianna" which was the name the shelter had given her.

  • Animal Airline Arrangments

    Thank you! I found Happy Tails through an Internet search. What luck!!! We were facing a big move to a foreign country (Germany), and wanted our dog Sasha to go too. She was a stray that we found in California, or I should say she found us. She turned out to be the best dog we have ever had. Giving her up was not an option. She was going whether she liked it or not. I called Happy Tails and spoke to a Pet Travel Specialist. Her knowledge is great. She always kept me informed of what was going on. She had a lot of work to do and she accomplished it well beyond my expectations. Sash had to stay back in Arizona at first, because it was too hot to fly her. When the tragedy happened on September 11th, I was afraid that I would never see Sash again. My Pet Travel Specialist reassured me that she would get her here to Germany. On October 22nd, Sash arrived. Her arrangements were the best. She got here the same happy go lucky dog that I last saw her. That is why I can't say enough good things about Happy Tails. They helped to make our big move easier by taking such good care of our dog.

    I would recommend to anyone, if you want the best for your pet when it travels, Happy Tails is the company to use. Their hard work and understanding of how much people love their pets goes far beyond words.

    Dear Happy Tails, My husband and I feel fortunate that we "found" Bridget Monrad and Happy Tails Travel to escort our new puppies on their journey to Hawaii.

    Traveling to Hawaii is very complicated and we had a great deal of anxiety about how to accomplish this task. We put our trust in Bridget and were rewarded with puppies safely delivered. Neither puppy was stressed or traumatized even though they had to travel for two days from the breeders home in California. All along the route we were contacted by either Bridget or her excellent staff. We were thrilled with Jackie Kupau of Little Friends Pet Care of Honolulu for arranging the Hawaii portion of their journey and for greeting them with Aloha in Honolulu on the last part of their journey to their new home on the Big Island. A Big deal for them and a Big deal for us. Bridget and her staff are totally professional, knowledgeable and also very kind. We think Bridget, her staff and Happy Tails Travel are the only way to fly!

    Sophie is here! The flight was long (22 hours door to door), lots of hanging around getting Sophie booked in but thankfully there were no problems with customs or pet immigration in England.

    Sophie is doing great. She got very excited when we pulled into our street in Birmingham, she knew she was home because this is where she grew up as a little puppy. She has her garden to run around in again and I have made a special point of taking her on long walks to all the places I used to take her. All in all she doesn't seem phased at all and we are very happy as is she.

    Thanks for all your help. I have attached a picture of little Sophie for you. I hope you like her.

    My dog Venice and I survived a horrible fatal accident which unfortunately killed my father. After this ugly tragedy, I went back to my home in Southern California, but Venice had to stay with my family in Boston, Massachusetts, while I pieced my life back together. When the time came to get my dog back I did not know where to begin. Luckily, I found Happy Tails Travel on the Internet and gave them a call. I spoke with a woman named Bridget. She answered all of my questions and treated my situation as if it were her own. Happy Tails Travel took care of everything and made Venice's long trip from Boston, Massachusetts, to Long Beach, California, a lot less stressful for everyone. You can't put a price on peace of mind. Thank You Happy Tails Travel.

    Our Dog Has Arrived!!

    Thank you for all your help getting Gemma to us. Here are some great pictures of Bassa, whom we now call "Gemma" (she is such a little jewel!). A week after her arrival, she is now very comfortable with all of us and really having a great time taking long walks and picking my son up from school, and even going to work with me sometimes.

    We were very worried, as we had adopted her out-of-state and had never flown one of our pets before. It was very important to us that she arrive safe and not stressed, as she had never even met us! There was also concern about airline policies and temperature, as it had been very cold in the Northeast where she was going. But everything ran smoothly as could be. Her flight was even 10 minutes early. When we got her home, after a long day of travel, she slept through the night, just like a perfect baby. I felt so much better about the whole thing for having hired Happy Tails, and I'm sure Gemma did too. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

  • pooka tinkerbell

    We just wanted to send a quick message to let you know that Pooka and Tinkerbell have made it home safe and sound! Jason finally made it back and our kitty babies are here in Germany and really no worse for the wear. As soon as they were let out of their crates, they began to explore their new home.

    Tinkerbell darted up the steps and is enjoying being able to "see from high above" and Pooka wasted no time in trying to jump on the window ledge in the laundry room. He unfortunately missed, and slipped behind the dryer, which is why his pictures are covered in laundry fuzz! Tinkerbell headed right for the food and Pooka for the water, so hopefully they'll settle in quickly and smoothly.

    We want to take this chance to express our sincere gratitude for all you have done in bring our kitties to us; you were there for us the whole way. Thank you so much! We know there isn't any way we could have done this without all your help and it means the world to us to have our family back together again!

  • Tara's dog

    I am still amazed that this all came together as smoothly as it did. From the time I made the decision to adopt this pup sight unseen on Thursday until he was at my door on Saturday evening, Bridget was with me every step of the way.

    As I had never done a virtual adoption before, I was very anxious and way out of my comfort zone.  Not to mention the travel from the shelter in rural TN to San Francisco was no easy task. Bridget was absolutely wonderful, compassionate, and patient with me. And even though we didn't even know if anyone could be found to get him to the airport for his flight until the night before, she remained calm and was ready to make other arrangements if need be. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needed to make this stressful decision because Bridget takes all the worry out of it. And although I'm sleep deprived, I'm beyond grateful for the new light in my life, who still remains nameless!

    Happy Tails made all the air travel arrangements for our two cats on our big move to Hawaii. Everything went so smoothly.

    Thirty minutes after their plane landed in Honolulu, Autumn and Olive were with us again. Things could not have gone better. Thanks for making our move easier.

    I also wanted to let you know it was your testimonials and quick response to my initial inquiry that sold me on using your service over the others.

    Many thanks to you for your great service and attention to detail. Philip came to us without a hitch! He has quickly settled in to his new home and seems quite happy with his new friends! I wanted Philip's trip to be smooth and easy for him and I didn't have time to prepare, not only his flight arrangements, but the arrangements to have him driven from where he was being housed to the airport. We made a call to Bridget, and she was in frequent contact with the people who worked at the facility where he was being housed, rearranged his flight when she heard the Houston airport was to be closed due to weather and even had a nice little toy and bandanna as a gift for Philip, when he arrived!

    The whole arrangement worked out flawlessly and was more service had I anticipated. Bridget is a pet's best travel resource!

  • nero

    I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of mine and Nero's hearts. Your travel arrangements were absolutely perfect. For the several weeks prior to our departure from Los Angeles, almost up to the date of departure on July 4th, your kind words and reassuring demeanor made our trip so much easier. Nero had never traveled by air before and this made me extremely nervous... I can only imagine what he was feeling as he was led away "behind bars". Upon our arrival in Boston, I drove to the cargo area and there he was, sitting in his crate and smiling (yes, dogs DO smile). I was never so glad to see my dog, and by the lick-fest that followed, he felt the same.

    I fully intend to recommend Happy Tails Travel to anyone who asks, and would not hesitate to personally use your company again.  

    PS: Here is a photo of Nero and me; he is happily showing off his Happy Tails Travel bandana gift!

    Thanks again,

And although the circumstances of Anna’s coming to join our family are very sad, I believe she’ll be very happy in the end.

    Aloha, Happy Tails... After deciding to move to the Big Island, I was faced with the daunting task of getting my four kitties over there.

    I had gotten all the paperwork ready, the waiting period was over... however the logistics of the airlines, the stress of plane transfers, etc was becoming miloverwhelming to the point of "how on earth can I do this myself?"

    Bridget made the move absolutely seamless, stress-free and reassured me each step of the way. From coordinating the kenneling, to scheduling the best flights for them, to weather checks, to scheduling with associates in Honolulu to get them through quarantine and on the flight to Kona. To be able to set up our house for them before their arrival made ALL the difference our cat's and our comfort.

    They (and we!) are loving Island life. If we do ever decide to head back to the Mainland, Bridget will be the first person I'll call!

    I want to thank you again for making arrangements to get Samantha to Kauai safely and for alleviating our fears about her travel. It was wonderful to have someone experienced take care of the details and provide all of the necessary information in a comprehensive package. We have talked to many folks who made their own arrangements and, in some cases, the trips did not go nearly as smoothly as Samantha's. We have given information on "Happy Tails Travel" to several people and highly recommend that they contact you for their pet's travel.

    Samantha, Larry and I have adjusted well to our new home. Samantha has become quite the "aloha girl". She loves being at the beach and running on the golf course behind our house. She's adjusted to the heat and seems to like her new house. I don't know if you've been to Kauai but we have wild chickens pretty much everywhere. Samantha loves to watch the chickens but has been a good girl and kept her distance from them. Every night after dark she watches the geckos on the screens - it's like her big screen TV.Thank you again, for your help!!!

    You have done really well! Thank you so much for arranging everything to transport Phishbone. It was rather sudden notice but you were able to make it happen in a few days! You picked everything perfectly from the right sized dog cage, a transporter from the dog kennel to the airport, a health certificate, finding the best cargo for pets to even arranging the ideal time of arrival to Los Angeles Airport so that I was able to pick him up right after work. You were always available for questions and called me everyday to let me know how everything was going. I could not have asked for more. Phisbone and I thank you. PS: I have also sent a photo of Phishbone with one of the gifts you sent to him.

    I want to thank you and your company again for taking the time to help me with the move of my father's dog, Lexi. While I was back in Delaware helping my father after his colon cancer operation. I had to take over his care. But with that I had to move him along with Lexi to my home in CA. I had tried to get Lexi on the plane but she was way to big to carry her on the plane. I was in a panic as to how I could then get Lexi out with us all in CA. I was talking to the moving company that I had hired to do the furniture more. And my rep suggested HappyTailsTravel.com. The best suggest anyone could have made to me. I went on the website filled out a short form and within 12 hours I got a call from Bridget. Who took over all the preparations of Lexi's trip. The cost was minimal compared the nervous breakdown I would have had if I had done it myself. Bridget provided me with all the information I needed to make Lexi's trip the easiest thing I had to do. Compared to the whole house move from the East coast to the West coast. But we have finally gotten the furniture delivered on July 3rd. This picture was taken after our dinner on the 4th. Now all we have to do is finish unpacking boxes. Help, the worse chore of moving is cleaning up after and arranging the house. Thanks Bridget for Lexi's safe and uneventful trip to her new home in CA.

    As I mentioned in my voicemail, we are all safe and sound in Minnesota!!

    The kitties actually took very well to the whole process and, by this morning, were eating, drinking and using the litter box like normal.

    They were a little more whiny during the night than normal and Dex is being VERY needy...it's really adorable...but, other than that, they're doing exceptionally well.

    Thank you again for all your help, guidance and support. We definitely couldn't have done it without you!!

    She's doing wonderfully! We all love her sooo much, she's really a part of our family. She sleeps with one of us almost everynight and she even does well in her crate now that she knows we'll always be there for her and we won't leave her. Hopefully she'll be starting obedience classes very soon which should be fun for her and us! Thank you so much for all your help, she couldn't have gotten here so safe and sound without your help.

    Dear Bridget,
    So how does one import a Polish Breed Doberman Pup from Warsaw???

    I had absolutely no experience in this endeavor, and neither had my friend Gunter.  We were to believe that my new pup would fly directly to Rochester, NY. That was not the case!!!  The breeder gave us a list of those agencies that would facilitate transport.  I looked over the web addresses, and only one firm would return my call -- Happy Tails Travel.  Bridget and I spoke on many occasions.

    I left it all to Happy Tails Travel, and the outcome couldn't have been better! Happy Tails cleared the hurdles and made sure Little Olaf Dumas Cutter hit the USA shores on a great run.  Happy Tails reported to me every step of the way, answering all the questions, and dealing with all the surprise situations.  Olaf arrived on schedule and in good spirits. It worked out well for all of us.

    And this was an Experience!!!  With a wonderful Happy Ending, very much thanks to Happy Tails Travel! I highly recommend if you have a pup to move, call Happy Tails Travel, it was worth the dime. You can see all of the pics of Olaf Dumas Cutter.

  • Dear Bridget,
    I was very pleased with Happy Tails' service. I had to relocate for my job 2200 miles away and could not take Sissy with me. After the World trade Center attack, I all but gave up hope for getting my kitty back. At that time, I saw September 11, in addition to being a personal tragedy for all of us, as another personal loss in that I lost getting back my only live-in family member in the whole world. Then, just as I was about to give up hope, someone told me about Happy Tails and everything changed. Thanks to Happy Tails, I have Sissy back with me. It's as if she never left, and she's sure glad to be home. It's like getting a lost family member back ! Their service was efficient and Sissy got flown to me without a single stumbling block. I am grateful to Happy Tails for assisting in getting her back to me.
