One of the kids’ Christmas gifts flew back from Africa with us – Mariah’s two cats and Cameron’s dog. They had a hard first week, but have since adjusted to being American. Can’t wait till they see snow for the first time – especially the Husky!
Thank you Marlene for sending the pets to us in Arkansas and all your help!

Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort to get our baby back to us.  It was a wonderful experience working with such an effective and caring team.  Paul was an absolute sweetheart and was very kind and gentle during the drop off. We will definitely recommend your service to friends and family. Wishing you a lovely weekend.
