With abandoned animals close to our hearts, we originally set out to help the UAE’s animal welfare groups send rescue pets to their new forever homes, at as low a cost as possible and, in some cases, completely free of any fees. As our reputation grew, we began to receive enquiries directly from pet parents so took the decision to take the plunge, two feet and all paws, to expand and Pawsome Pets was born. Moving your world around the world.
From small beginnings we have grown to the company we are today. Offering bespoke import and export travel solutions to and from the UAE, we have helped thousands of pets travel safely around the world (and in some cases back again). We have a fleet of customised pet transport vehicles and offer boarding in our very own luxury cat condos or for the pupsters, with trusted partners in their amazing daycare and boarding facilities.
More recently we took the step of becoming members of IPATA and ATA, global organisations whose primary focus is the safe and ethical transportation of pets around the world. We are extremely proud to share the values these organisations hold, both of whom have a stringent vetting process for their members. We are bound by (and hold ourselves accountable to) the highest global standards in pet travel, care and well-being.
What Makes Us Different
Pet owners and animal lovers first, relocation and logistical experts second. We view every animal as extremely precious cargo. Here are a few ways we hope we stand out.
Meet The Team
Whilst volunteering to help animal welfare groups relocate their rescues, Kirsty recognised some of the key challenges faced when relocating a pet; lack of transparency on costs and process, confusion on viable options and much more. She figured there had to be a better way?And so, Pawsome Pets was born....
Alongside the day to day running of the business, she also ensures key client services (chin scratches, ear rubs and cuddles) are always on top of the team agenda.
Known on the Dubai doggie circuit as the ‘Husky Whisperer’ due to the waifs and strays (often of the husky variety) passing through his home on their way to a better life.
Turns out Dean is in fact an all-round doggie and kitty whisperer with every (and we mean EVERY) furry client he meets, falling under his spell.
Living down under, Claire is deputy to our Chief Ball Counter, Smoke.
Whilst he is busy keeping a close eye on our inventory of toys (particularly the balls), Claire ensures that we keep everyone on side by paying our bills on time.
All that number crunching sounds a bit boring but she and Smoke assure us it's not.
Christine, our office angel, is often the first of us that you will speak with when you get in touch.
Chatting with clients and liaising with our many partners around the world so we may respond to your enquiries as quickly as possible.
As a fully qualified vet nurse, she also brings a whole host of other skills that thankfully we have never needed to call upon.
Always under our feet - literally.
Keeping us on our toes (or tripping us up) as they sprawl around the office.
Providing free cuddles and feet warmers.
Never making the tea!
THE REAL BOSSES
We love when our clients share a review of their relocation experience on our Facebook page. You may not be aware that Facebook does not allow reviews to be removed. Therefore you can be safe in the knowledge that the reviews you see are not just cherry picked to make us look good.
We also encourage you to provide us with direct feedback at any stage of your relocation process so that we can continue to improve on the services we provide. We are big believers in continuing to grow and see every day and each relocation as an opportunity to learn something new. Even if it is a route or activity we have done a hundred times before. We think we do a pretty good job and we are delighted that our clients seem to think so too!
