Global Animal Transport helped ship my cat from the US to Sydney.

Michael was great and made us feel less worried about this stressful process. Our cat arrived in Melbourne safe & sound, little hassle, and it wasn’t too expensive either

Dear Michael & Susan,

Our 4 kitties arrived at their destinations today safe and sound. We know that cats are relatively easy for you, but without your expertise we would never have found the right kennels or airlines. Your service has made our lives a whole lot easier in a difficult time. What’s more, the recipients are very happy with your service as well.

You are indeed the best! Thank you so very much for your professionalism and for taking such good care of our pets.

Hi Michael, We are so very pleased the way you handled the international transport of my 22 yr old African Grey, Mahal. from Chicago O’Hare to my country. Manila Philippines.

Carol, a very capable lady designated by Michael took care of personally boarding Mahal w UAL. She txtd me his condition on boarding and departure. She reviewed his documents thoroughly to make sure everything is complete for him to board. Michael met Mahal at LAX, LA, checked his approved kennel w his good looking picture and replenished his food and water containers. to sustain him for the 14 hr straight flight to his final destination, Manila Philippines. Michael personally supervised his boarding and gave me updates of his journey to Manila, allaying any apprehension I may have which gave me peace of mind. He even mentioned Mahal singing as he boarded him with no signs stress for his 14 hr straight flight to Manila, Philippines.

Although Mahal was not allowed to be with us in the passenger cabin, we felt he was because of the excellent personal care Michael provided. I am so happy I found Michael Foley as I did a thorough search on the internet of who could best transport my bilingual intelligent African Grey. Michael along with his very nice capable wife Susan did an unsurpassable job taking care of Mahal from document preparation to actual journey to the PHILIPPNES.

Thank you Michael and Global Animal Transport Company for having Mahal with us now, alive and well.

Dear Michael and Susan,

Mahal is doing very well, all through your expertise in handling and managing pet ransports. You follow up on the completeness of needed documents, making sure they are done right the first time.

My sister was very impressed you were able to rebook Mahal on United Airlines from American Airlines right away without causing any delay in his travel itinerary. You are so dynamic keeping us informed of the course of his international travel, keeping us worry free. You are always reachable whenever we have questions thus allaying apprehensions we may have.

We are now and will be enjoying the company of our dear Mahal for many years to come.

Susan will not stay unmentioned in the excellence of the services you provide. She is always available receiving phone messages and transmitted to you in a timely manner

My heartfelt gratitude to you and Susan for having our dear Mahal experience togetherness and love as a family in my country. the Philippines.

We will stay in touch.

Rufina and Viki with our love as always

kit250I would like to send out a huge thank you to all of you! It has been a long journey for all of us and it still continues here in Kansas City. Kit has made it to her final destination and is settling down at her temporary home at animal health. Our vet still has some testing that he would like to run, but I didn’t want this day to go by without commending all of you on your dedication to get here safely. I couldn’t have done without each of you and your staff. I will keep everyone in the loop on our progress. Great job everyone and thanks again, she is beautiful!

Hi Mike and Wayne,

I just want to let you know that Dandy (quickly becoming known as ‘Pistol’ now) is now home with me, all thanks to your brilliantly professional combined efforts.  I picked him up from quarantine two days ago with no dramas at all.

He is wonderful, an absolutely glorious little dog who exceeds all of my expectations, definitely well worth every dollar spent, every day waited, every stress endured.  He is everything I wanted and more.  I am wildly in love with him already, and just so, so happy.  He has settled in amazingly well and quickly, and has been joyful, playful and affectionate every minute since arriving home.

There are no words to express my profound gratitude to you both for all of your hard work, patience, perseverance and professionalism to get him home.  Thank you so very much for the brilliant job you’ve done.  I am SO happy.  xx

Nikki’s safe arrival

Hi Michael,

I wanted to thank you and Susan so much for taking care of Nikki’s departure and making sure all the documents were in order. Her arrival and delivery to our B&B went smoothly apparently with ReloCat, and we found Nikki safe and sound. She is now lying in the sun in the living room and seems to have made it through the long trip with little stress. My husband said when he met you at the time we gave Nikki to you, he felt Nikki was in good hands and he did not worry. So, thanks again.

Italy is beautiful!

Hi Michael,

I just wanted to let you know that everyone arrived safe and well in Finland and they all seemed remarkably unfazed by the whole thing. Nervous dogs, frail elderly kitties – they all did great! Now they are settling in, the cats are enjoying the heated floors and the dogs have been out in the snow for the first time ever and absolutely loved it.

I wanted to thank you for all your help at making this happen and your tireless troubleshooting in what became a far more time consuming and complex case than it, presumably, ever needed to be. I don’t know what we would have done if we hadn’t had you there to sort out that huge bureaucratic mess and come up with alternatives at the drop of a hat and we will always be very grateful to you for that. As for Lufthansa, I am very happy with the way everything was handled. Our animals arrived in much better shape than when we shipped them from Dubai to LA on KLM six years ago.

Thanks again!

Kittu has arrived in Sydney quarantine safe & sound and has “has started to settle in”

It is a bit disappointing that visits are not allowed during her stay – I spoke to them as well. She is now in the home stretch & will be home on 25th to a grand reception.

We are forever indebted to you for looking after our girl while she was away. We will be in touch.

Thanks & hoping all is well with you,

Anu & Partho



I want to thank you for working with us to get Kittu home safe & sound. As always, your professionalism, your acute attention to detail and the genuine passion that you have for what you do, Mike, is so very much appreciated.

When it comes to the business of transporting animals Global Animal Transport is in a class all by itself — you are the best!

Hi Michael

Well, my babies are out of kitty jail now!  Just suffering home detention.  They are pacing a little and would like to get their feet on New Zealand soil.

Not long now.

And truly, as the photo’s show, they are not suffering too much!

Madam has a new chair that she has claimed as her own:








Ginger very cuddly and content. He’s purring a lot more than the cat I remember!








Thank you for all that you did to get them here.

I cannot express my thanks to you enough. This has been so stressful for us and we want you to know that of everyone we have worked with on all sides of this move, from Max to the movers, Doug’s company moving us, back home our house and all, you have been the most professional, supportive and pleasant and to just wrap it all up in a nutshell, YOU ROCK! Thank you so very much. Doug told me what you were going to do for Max when you get him and I appreciate that so much.

From the bottom of my heart, Michael, Thank You! If it wasn’t for you in all this, I would have lost it a long time ago. If Max can just make it to LAX, I know he will be in good hands from there.

Ruger450Hi Mike!

Ruger is being picked up today by Vanessa Taylor from quarantine. I just want to send you very warm thanks again for all of your hard work and organization to make it happen. 🙂

Should we ever need animal transport, you are the go-to guy! I am telling everyone who asks as doing this without help could be very daunting. It was especially easier to have you deliver him to the airport so I did not get too emotional over it!


March 14, 2014


Thank you again for your assistance throughout this process. We are meeting with Janine from Stepping South today ….  I already did and will again recommend you for her to refer all of her US–based clients looking to import pets into South Africa (she works with many big US companies on relocations).

Many thanks again. Having — travel go without incident was an incredible stress reliever and we have you to thank for that.



Hello Michael,

Just wanted to follow up on email and express a HUGE thank you from myself and —–.  There is no way we would have been able to book the kennel with her traveling in cabin had it not been for your help and we will be eternally grateful!

They all arrived in Texas in perfect shape, healthy, happy and well fed.

They were never left alone and were with the same couple at all times, day and night.

I would like to give a big thanks to Global Animal Transport. I recently found a dog located at a kill shelter located in Pomona. I was devastated at the fact she only had hours to live; with me living in the SFV, I couldn’t make it in time to save her. I remembered meeting Michael and Susan a while back and mentioned they’ve rescued animals with no place to call home. Something told me to contact them; With no questions…. Michael dropped everything to make the commute, Not only did he save her; but also took Lucy to his vet for a second exam and paid for all vet cost.

Each and everyday I look into Lucy’s eyes… I am reminded of the two people that bent over backwards to make me happy.

Hi Michael,

We’ve safely made it to Rockhampton. We heard from quarantine that our Doberman, Dutch is “adjusting well” in Sydney. We’re really looking forward to getting her home because we’ve rented a beautiful beach cottage that is dog friendly and is one block away from a dog beach. We can’t wait to see her splashing around in the ocean. I hope everything is going well for you. We can’t thank you enough for your kindness.

Thanks a billion times over. Please let us know if you are ever in the neighbourhood.

Dear Michael,

Once again we want to thank you for your care of Rooty and Stella and your persistence in getting them to their final destination.

For sure, we had no idea that when we sent them from their comfortable home in Guatemala that they would be spending 2 weeks in LA. Had I known they were lacking documentation, I would have made sure this was solved prior to their travel. While we were all anxious for their arrival, its the pups that are impacted the most by all the delay and uncertainty.

Thank you for shepherding them safely to Kenya. With Peace Corps, we, along with embassy colleagues, are transfered regularly and we are always needing to safely transport our pets. I will indeed pass your info onto my colleagues for worldwide pet transfers. It’s so important to have someone you trust to do this, as you would know.

Thank you, once again, Michael.

Warm regards from ourselves and Rooty and Stella –
Martha and Rafael

Hi Mike,

Sorry I’m only now getting back to you… Alfie, my black and white tuxedo kitty that moved to England with your expert coordination and excellent service, is doing very well! Thank you so much! I was also very happy with our experience with PBS in the UK. They got Alfie up to our door in a timely manner and were easy to work with over the phone. I would highly recommend Global Animal Transport and PBS to anyone shopping around for this type of service. I hope you, your wife and all your own precious “kids” have a wonderful holiday season!

Mr. Patrik Blomsten
I had a busy day at customs today but all went well. Thanks a lot for everything, all the animals seemed to be in perfect health and are now in good cages with heat and water.

The border vet, the expert that was there to inspect the animals and all customs officers said that this was the best venomous snake shipment they had ever dealt with. Both packaging and paperwork was very professional they said and wanted me to let everybody that worked with this shipment know that.

Thanks again!

Mrs. Morris
I just wanted to let you know that the pets arrived well and safe. Thank you for all your help. No one else could get the job done, and your services were prompt, efficient and outstandingly professional. We couldn’t have made it with out you!

I just wanted to send you my sincere thanks for all the assistance you have provided with the recent transport of Oscar and Cleo to New Zealand. You have no idea have valuable your advice and expertise were to me through the entire process and I would highly recommend you to anyone who was planning to transport beloved pets. We went to visit Oscar and Cleo today at Shado-Lans and it was so reassuring to see how well they looked and how they responded to us.

Again, my heartfelt thanks!

John & Steve (Huntington Beach, CA – now Melbourne, AUS)
We are so grateful to Global Animal Transport for their expert guidance – taking us through the complicated overseas quarantine requirements and developing a seamless plan of quarantine planning, flight departure, arrival at both the overseas airport and quarantine station. This allowed our partially paralyzed Dalmatian, Liza, the maximum of US home stay (5 months) and a brief observation stay (30 days) at the quarantine station – satisfying the required 6 month quarantine period. The moving stress to all of us was greatly reduced before, during and after the quarantine process – for a very happy ending in our new land!

Thank you, Michael and Susan, for not only the expert advice, but also your friendly assurances that everything would indeed be fine for all of us! It was!!!

Todd & Melanie Nine (North Palmerston, New Zealand)
Global Animal Transport is not only professional, but they care about your pets as much as you do. They are also willing to help you every step of the way, working hard to ensure your pets are shipped on time and safely. Their replies to our inquires were prompt, and they also made themselves available to us when we had questions or problems. My husband and I never worried about our animals’ safety when we shipped them, as we knew Global would take excellent care of them. If we ever have to ship animals again, we would only choose Global. They are, without a doubt, the best in the business!

Dr. Bruce A. Beehler – Deputy Zoo Director – Milwaukee County Zoo
Thank you for all of your expertise and services in getting the Jaguar from Belize safely to Milwaukee. We especially appreciated your rapid responses and continuing updates of the situation.

I have forwarded your information regarding the changing USFWS enforcement protocols to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to alert the members. I am sure that Belize also appreciates the info you gave to them regarding their CITES permit.

Many Thanks!

I just wanted you all to know that Simba is here in Japan with our Takaoka family now! We are so very thankful for all of your help through all that paperwork. When I thought it was impossible, you all helped me through! And thank you for helping my Mom through it all too!

We are very excited to have our whole family here now!
God’s blessings to you all!
