How it all started
Don’t you often wonder, why someone started a business?
I have often asked myself that same question, especially when it is related to something I find interesting or have never thought of something like that existing.
I really never thought of starting my own company or that my love of animals would turn into my crusade. My story started because I lived a nightmare when transporting my own personal pets to Costa Rica almost two decades ago.
Because I knew nothing about import rules of Costa Rica or how to get 3 dogs, 3 cats and 2 birds to my new home I sought professional assistance from what I was told was a “reputable” company. Turns out they knew nothing more than I did about Costa Rica or how to get 3 dogs, 3 cats and 2 birds to Costa Rica. I later found out that my pets were the first they had moved to Central America, so in a sense, we were their guinea pigs.
After my emergency subsided, I went to work to find that better way. I knew there had to be a better way for families like mine with pets AND small children in tow to make an international move without all the stress and tears.
That was my inspiration to start my own company and build a network to help those families like mine. It is also now my mission….“To provide the most outstanding pet transportation experience – Helping pet owners find a better way minimizing stress throughout the process.”
