About Us

Our Story

Following over 15 years with WorldCare Pet Transport, the team of Ross Gays, Don Uyeno and Mike Gays decided to strike out with a new venture that totally focussed on corporate relocation and unparalleled levels of service and scope. Global Pet Relocation was born with the mission to be the new standard of international pet relocation. Combining technological advances with years of expertise our mission is for Global Pet Relocation to be the pinnacle of pet transport.

Our Team

The team Global Pet Relocation is solely comprised of pet owners and pet lovers. Our aim is to make sure pets are relocated safely, expediently and with a truly empathetic attitude towards owners who are undoubtedly going to be apprehensive about moving their loved one thousands of miles. Our team take the needs of owners very seriously and have only the best intentions for their pets.
