GRADLYN Petshipping – animal transport since 1968

The Animal Travel Agency –
because animal transport is a matter of trust

Welcome to GRADLYN Pet shipping! We are a specialist animal travel agency with 50 years’ experience.  

With animal travel arrangements, it‘s all a matter of knowledge and expertise – in dealing with animals and humans, and in the preparation, planning, organization and timing. We have been handling animal transportation of all kinds since 1968 and are well-acquainted with all relevant rules, regulations and licensing requirements, from health certificates through to the application of CITES guidelines (Washington Convention for the Protection of Endangered Species), and also as regards the selection of optimal containers for the transport of animals. Our professional team can take care of your trip planning and look after your animal transportation from A to Z, right from the outset through to the arrival at your destination airport.

And naturally, our tour guides will also take into account the special needs, preferences and worries of our air passengers and travelling companions whether they have two or four legs, or even more. So with your human and creature comforts assured, where do you want to go?

Species-appropriate, worldwide
animal transport with GRADLYN Pet shipping

Our GRADLYN Pet shipping guides are very familiar with all aspects of the professional transport of animals and fully understand the special requirements of each different species, as well as the relevant legal regulations which must be observed.

On your behalf, we appoint a designated personal contact from the outset whose job it is to offer advice and assistance to the pet owner about any detail of the planning, organization or implementation of arrangements. This is just one reason for GRADLYN‘s reputation as the leading European animal transporter of zoo species, breeding animals and pets.

Dog to USA - Referral Letter

Dear Sandra & Gradlyn Kennels,

I want to thank you for all your kindness and expert service. From start to finish and working through the recent tragedy in my family, you have been superbly professional and even more importantly, extremely caring.
I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Gradlyn and especially, Sandra. The attention to service was fantastic.
Communication was fabulous and always far beyond simple instruction. Rene was so kind to translate Herr Müller's emails for me. Sandra was my liaison with Willi Müller and I cannot begin to put into words how much that is appreciated.
The puppy arrived in great shape. The flight was on time and all necessary paperwork was there and ready to go. Sandra was in constant contact to make sure that this little girl arrived without any problems.
I would recommend Gradlyn Kennels services beyond any other for their care, kindness and superb attention to detail.

Sincerely, Linda Skidmore

Our hairy children

Dear Sandra, we are all home on Gabriola safe and sound. I have nice fire burning in our wood burning stove and lthough it is dismal outside,
the inside is cosy and warm.

Thank you and your good colleques for all the excellent service in caring for our little hairy children. We appreciate it very much!
You provide a great humanitarian service to animal owners as well as compassionate kindness to the animal kingdom.

Best wishes,
Shirl, Yuri, Daisy, Mallory, Gerald and Basil

Thanks a lot,

A turtle flies to USA

Sandra,

just wanted to let you quickly know that Grumpy box turtle's arrival went great. Everything went smoothly with her trip it seems and all of the paperwork and procedures were in perfect order for the USFWS inspectors and US customs department etc.. This is thanks to you and all at GK Airfreight.

Grumpy seems quite happy and not very stressed at all. She is already settling in well to her new home.

Excellent job, once again ! And Thank you so very much for everything !!!
