Are you looking for a pet moving company to help de-stress your upcoming move?  You’re in the right place!   It is rare to find an animal relocation service that is everything that you were looking for.

Owned and operated by Estelle Fourie since 1978, Animal Travel Services is one of those extraordinary finds… A professional well established business, priding itself in being one of the first and most reputable pet transport companies in South Africa.

Having built and nurtured a well-recognised name both locally and internationally, Animal Travel Services is a trusted  and recommended animal care organisation for boarding and relocation services as well as the official and exclusive Animal Handler for most of the Airlines operating into and from South Africa.  Animal Travel Services is conveniently located at Cape Town International Airport, with a progressive and forward thinking approach on business, backed by a dynamic, focused and highly trained team of animal handlers with a great passion for their jobs and animals.

Animal Travel Services’ menu of pet moving services is among the most comprehensive in the industry.  Our single focus is to safely and compassionately relocate family pets and other animals to their domestic or foreign destination.  Once we learn about your pet and your travel plans, we’ll advise you of the destination’s requirements and provide a free comprehensive written estimate.

We offer special rates to breeders and return clients – in fact – we offer a “frequent flyer” programme for our furry flyers (F.F.F. – Frequent Furry Flyer)

We are also very proud to of our own private boarding facilities for our “pets in transit”.  Our boarding kennels are tailor made to meet your pets every requirement, whilst keeping up with our high standards of client satisfaction.
