“Petraveller was the only company that made an effort, given the short notice.”
Petraveller relocated two adorable dogs and one gorgeous cat from Hobart to Vancouver. Pet mum Kitty talks about her pets and her pet travel experience with Petraveller.
Staffordshire Terrier Sunny has been a part of the Porteous family since she was a puppy. Kitty says, “Sunny loves her balls, sticks and swimming. She gets along very well with dogs and people and loves to cuddle. She sleeps under the covers of our bed, and we love her to bits! She has separation anxiety, and does not like being alone.”
Labrador x Springer Spaniel Whiskey was rescued by Kitty when he was three years old from Risdon Vale, Tasmania. Kitty says fondly, “Whiskey is our little man. He loves to bark and gets very excited. He sleeps on top of our bed, and is a quick learner. He loves to please and is good on the leash. He has come a long way in the last two years.”
Last but not the least, is Domestic Shorthair Peter, who was also rescued by Kitty at six weeks old. He was found behind a building and had cat flu. Kitty and her family nursed him back to health. Kitty says affectionately, “Peter is a sweet little boy. He loves the dogs and us but he is very cautious of people. He is so shy that our friends have never seen him, other than in pictures.”
The Porteous family was heading back home to Vancouver, Canada with their pets. Kitty says, “Our pets are our kids. We never considered leaving them.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has made a tough year for many people around the world. It has made travelling and pet transport more complicated because of flight unavailability and travel restrictions. It was not easy for Kitty to find a pet travel partner to help her move her adorable pets to Vancouver.
Kitty says, “I reached out to many companies to assist with Whiskey, Sunny and Peter’s pet transport. Petraveller was the only company that made an effort to help us get the pets across, given the short notice. They accommodated us, especially during COVID, when no other company got back to us.”
Sunny, Whiskey and Peter had an amazing flight and made it to Vancouver safely and in great spirits. Thank you, Kitty, for trusting Petraveller with their pet transport to Canada. We wish you the best and many amazing adventures with Sunny, Whiskey and Peter in Canada!
