Pet Relocation and Pet Shipping Services

If we can give you ONLY one bit of advice... NEVER use a third party (middleman) Pet Shipper for pet relocation and pet shipping services! They NEVER see your pets. They farm out ALL services. They bleed you dry. They arrange for services you do NOT need or want!  
More info on the  Third Party Shipper's pages

Be sure the Pet Shipper of YOUR choice ITEMIZES  ALL charges BEFORE you sign up with them!  Most IPATA shippers will NOT!  We do!

Many pet shippers offer:  Gold Standard; White Glove; VIP; World Class; etc.  This is Total BALONEY!!!  This is so they can Over charge you!  Check out their SUPER high prices and refusal to itemize!  Try reaching them AFTER their Banker Hours of operation...  We will make LIFE during Pet Relocation SO much easier for you!

We fully ITEMIZE  ALL charges before you sign up with us!  DO  THEY?

You can trust in Action Pet Express for providing professional and safe pet transportation. We have 47 years of experience in the business of making sure your pet family members (cat, dog, etc.) travel in comfort and arrive safely. I, Jerry Mishler, Owner & U.S. Army Veteran, guarantee you will have great peace of mind after speaking with me. We cater to dogs, cats, birds and other beloved pets. I have experience with worldwide travel with my own dogs.

Why use someone who NEVER sees your pets, charges you several thousands of dollars just to make a couple phone calls and/or send a couple emails? I will help you for FREE! Check our Credentials...


We are often asked why someone should use Action Pet Express rather than another pet shipper! Really, it boils down to COSTS! Everyone provides pretty much the same services, etc.! IPATA 3rd party pet shippers are just so much MORE expensive! We also ITEMIZE ALL of our services and costs. Most IPATA shippers REFUSE to as they really do NOT want you to know what you are actually paying! We ask ONE simple thing of YOU! Just compare OUR Prices and Services with THEIRS!

Please be advised of expensive IPATA 3rd Party Pet Shippers WHO ALSO solicit live animal transport to EXPERIMENTAL LABORATORIES, Read the Experimental Labs page.

You do NOT need to use an expensive IPATA Pet Shipper; nor IPATA Veterinarian; nor IPATA Kennel! MOST airlines do NOT require IPATA Pet Shippers. PLEASE check with us! You may just SAVE Thousands of Dollars.

Pet Travel Agency

We assist and advise regarding ALL paperwork (health and rabies certificates, lab work when necessary, etc. We make ALL flight arrangements. We assist with ALL pickup and pet delivery services. We work with ALL Veterinarians, kennels, airlines, relocation services, moving companies, and anyone else involved in making this a safe and smooth pet shipping experience. We can also provide shipping kennels. We are a total and complete pet travel agency! We follow your pet's every step; bark and meow; from pre-planning to final delivery.

Saving Money Planning Your Next Pet Travel

Do NOT use a pet shipper in the USA to arrange shipment FROM a foreign country TO USA. It will cost you at least $3000 to $5000 MORE than necessary! Would you NOT want to save hundreds, even thousands, of DOLLARS? Avoid IPATA 3rd party shippers!! Read on !!
Happy Tails of Tucson, AZ says they have fair prices. Do NOT believe! They are among the worst Rip Offs in the industry! Just look at their Consultation Fees.. OUTRAGEOUS! You do NOT need to pay these. You can do MUCH better, even if you do not call us!

Most Pets being shipped TO, FROM, or TRANSIT THRU, Greater WASHINGTON, D.C. by IPATA shippers are handled by the VERY Expensive CAPITAL Pet Movers!! They are the IPATA agent most often used here! You do NOT need to use this VERY expensive service. We can SAVE you couple thousand dollars at least in most cases!! At least get our quote!! Our charge for Customs Clearance is $100.. What are they quoting you? Be sure to get an itemized statement of ALL charges!

We can SAVE you SO much money by having pets shipped to us at Dulles IAD, then further shipping your pets on: Lufthansa, Qatar Air, South African Air, or British Air. Just ask us!!
