I want to thank ATW for delivering my puppy . Getting another Dalmatian 6 Years after loosing my baby of 17 years to cancer was a very hard decision and with deep consideration . I finally said it was time. The excitement was over the top and the wait for My Zoey to arrive was overwhelming. CJ was her road trip driver from Indiana to Las Vegas and he is AMAZING. He kept me informed on the journey and sent photos . They arrived lastnight and I could see his love for animals he transports especially his love for Zoey. CJ is very professional and kind. I give CJ and ATW a 10 + . Thank you so much. Zoey is adapting well but exhausted from this journey.
I want to thank Animal Transport Worldwide for bringing me my beautiful little girl! I want to think Mark Hansen the driver who brought her to my door you were so kind and sincerely looking out for the welfare of my puppy and I thank you for bringing her home to me safe! Thank you
We were so scared to have our puppy travel so far but Logan made sure everything was taken care of an made me feel at ease with the whole process. And Mark our driver was so awesome keeping me up to date. Excellent company to work with. So thankful for everything. Thank you all so much.
Knowing my puppy got accompanied while in the air and also by ground transport team. they kept me informed on ETA, reassured me and delivered him right to my door. I loved CJ on ground and his partner in the air who came all the way from Missouri. they documented walks, feedings and brought anything I might need. I give a 5 star rating to this company and believe they really care about the animal and person waiting. thank you so much for bring me my perfect puppy. I will love him forever. you offer an excellent service.
The driver Mark couldn’t have been more professional. He texted updates regularly during the course of the trip and kept us informed of his progress. Upon arrival he was friendly, knowledgeable and obviously loves animals and traveling all over the US. The whole experience was sooo much less stressful than an airport pickup. Then from the dog’s point of view....I can’t get the puppy to review the experience but I have a hunch he preferred it over flying....
Mark Hansen was AMAZING!!! He was so kind, so informative, so professional, and kept us in the loop the whole way. Mark was so genuinely happy for my daughter to be surprised with her puppy! He loves his job and it shows! Thanks so much for all you did to get Knox to us.
This company kept us updated daily and took out calls with out question. They even sent us pictures of the puppy will in their care. The puppy arrived happy and fed and not even thirsty. I would recommend this company with out question all reviews seem true and for the most part excellent and that's how I would rate them % STARS and EXCELLENT. By the way our driver was George and he was great.
WOW! What an awesome experience we had with you guys! Our driver KEITH SHAFFER was wonderful! He called several times to give us updates on our beautiful Golden doodle’s arrival. He was very caring and concerned for her health and well being! We received her a full day early and perfectly gorgeous! Thanks you guys for class A service! We will definitely be recommending you to all of our family and friends! KUDOS!!🌹😇💖🐶
My friend Kim Shaboo is one of the driver for ATW; Kim and I have been friend’s for almost 2 years , in these 2 years we have become close and Kim often visit’s me , where I live with 4 fur babies. Kim is always kind and playful with them, I would trust Kim with my fur babies anytime.
We received our new puppy yesterday morning from our driver George Snedden! He was the sweetest person and seemed to really love his job!! He was there right on time when he said he would be. Would use them again for sure if needed.
Kim Gratuity picked up a puppy from me today. She kept me posted on her arrival time and got here when she said she would. She was very knowledgeable, personable and excellent handling the puppy. I give Kim with ATW 5 stars 🤩Elva
George Snedden delivered our puppy. Other than the 24 hour delay because of weather George was great! He called me a couple times to give me time frames and when he was 1 hour away he called again to let us know with his exact eta! He was very nice and we are very happy with our new puppy!
George helped us feel at ease when he picked up the puppy and told us that ATW had 100% success rate. We had never used a transportation service before but have recommended ATW to several colleagues based on our very first experience.
Great service by Kim Shaboo from Animal Transportation Worldwide. The dog was safely delivered to our house healthy and well-fed! She provided updates about our dog and answered all our questions! Animal Transportation Worldwide is a great Transportation company for dogs. I highly recommend doing business with this company.
We are very pleased with ATW and our driver, George Snedden. The company communicated in a timely and courteous manner from the planning stages. George continued that communication right until our little girl was dropped at our door. We were very nervous about having our 9 week old puppy shipped so far (AR to South FL) however, she arrived clean and wasn't thirsty or hungry, which indicated to us she had received water and food during her travel. She wasn't obviously anxious or scared when we took her out of the crate, although I'm sure she was scared...she is just a baby after all! We believe because George talked to her and kept her close to his seat, it was easier for her. Thank you ATW and George!
Kim was such a nice person and sooo kind to my puppy when picking her up! She was so easy to work with and answered any and all of my questions. She wore a mask and made sure to keep her and my family healthy. I recommend ATW and I hope you get Kim as your driver! They are lucky to have her!
CJ Peavy brought our new puppy, Max, home to us today. He was extremely thorough in keeping me updated about the travel and delivery time. We were expecting a small puppy, without realizing that the puppies do get big from the moment you pick them to the moment you actually meet them. 😆 🤣 😂 So when Max showed up, our jaws dropped and we had to make sure he was indeed ours, since he was big and his face had also changed. After a chaotic two hours where Cookie (12 yr old black lab), and Molly (11 week old Golden Retriever) got acquainted with Max, now few hours later, there is calmness in our home. Molly right away told Max as to who the boss is (hint...hint...her highness). 😆 🤣 😂 We are so glad he's come to join our family. Thank you CJ for our gift that you delivered so carefully and lovingly to us. Thank you.
My new Aussiedoodle, Sky, was delivered to me this evening. ATW did a great job in communicating with me providing details of the approximate arrival time. CJ Peavy did a great job in delivering Sky. I would recommend ATW in handling the transportation of pets.
I was selling a puppy and the shipping I had set up canceled due to wether conditions. The puppy buyer set up with atw. They came to my house to pick up. Started by giving me a 12 hr span of time for pick up, but by the day of pick up it was narrowed down to a 4 hr span of time. Then as they got close they gave me an approximate pick up time and gave me a text when they were 30 min away. Made it easy to have puppy ready to go. Washed dried, and time to pottie and get her papers and food ready to go. Keith was polite and efficient and the puppy got to their new owners, so I am happy.
We had a great experience with ATW. CJ Peavy is an amazing person. He was very accommodating sent us pictures when we asked, and took care of our puppy Rip. I would trust CJ with my dogs anytime. I highly recommend ATW and CJ Peavy.
Kim was absolutely amazing! She was in contact with great communication literally every step of the way. She was professional and kind. She took great care of our little Rizzy and delivered him safe and healthy. Thank you Kim, your kindness and caring mean more to us than you will ever know! ❤😊.
I moved from Pittsburgh to Florida and researched numerous places to safely transport my fur baby. I found ATW and from the first conversation I felt comfortable in my decision to go with them. I, however originally was quoted a much lower price and it was a huge difference when I went to book it, but safety and speed was the goal, so I didn’t have a choice and trusted them based off of other reviews. I also was told that a different person would be transporting her than I was assigned. Kim was my transporter and she was fantastic. She kept me up to date, tried to video chat and sent photos when stopped. I was nervous to trust anyone with my fur baby, but they made it a great experience.
I never delta with a pet delivery service before but I'll tell you this company is dependable, they keep you informed of the process and the movement of your pet. The delivery person was so nice. The price is perfect. The service is all around great. 10 Stars..
We had a great experience. We had a new puppy delivered. Jessica, our driver kept us informed along the way. She arrived exactly as planned and our puppy was happy and well cared for. She answered all of our questions and gave us lots of helpful information as we are new dog owners.
Our driver Kim promptly answered our messages regarding our puppy. She made us feel at ease with the over 30 hour travel for delivery of our puppy. We truly appreciated her kindness and support for our concerns.
Thank you Animal Transport for delivering our new fur baby. Kim, our delivery driver was very nice, used social distancing, wore a mask and the greatest service was the wonderful communication on where our fur baby was in his long travel.
George took care of the transportation of our pup. He called to set up a window of time that worked for us. Our pup arrived happy and clean and truly cared about the pups in his care. Highly recommend!
Excellent service, I recommend it! Mark, the guy who was in charge of bringing our pet was very friendly and answered our calls !! I give them 5 stars for making it easy to move our puppy from Ohio to Texas! Thank you
Very helpful group of people and our driver CJ was awesome. He stayed in touch with us and went out of his way to meet us a bit early. Would recommend these guys to anyone! Thanks for being part of getting our new dog home!
Aaron Barnes drove our puppy from Texas to Boston. He was extremely professional, polite and had an obvious rapport with the animals. Aaron arrived ahead of schedule and was very efficient with communicating updates and coordination. Many thanks ATW for delivering a happy, healthy dog!
It is a very dependable service. Matthew was our driver and he kept us updated and delivered our puppy to the minute he said he would. I give him a 5 star review and would ask for him again if i could. Ellen
Matthew was fantastic in delivering our puppy. Very easy to communicate with and informed us along the way. We did social distancing upon arrival and communication about our puppy. Informed us of last potty break and meal times. Just an over nice guy!! Thanks Matthew, The Ceesna’s
So thankful for this service! Aaron our driver was great and kept us updated on Twyla’s journey home to us. We had peace of mind being able to follow her transportation in love time. Would highly recommend! 🐾
Matthew did a wonderful job, was professional, and showed genuine care for our new puppy. We will need to ship a dog to London as soon as COVID lets up and will definitely keep you all in mind! Great job.
Outstanding service. Driver kept us updated every step of the way—and even arrived early. These drivers and this company clearly love and care for these puppies along their journey from beginning to end. I would highly recommend ATW for animal transportation anywhere in the world. Satisfied human customer and more importantly a safely and securely delivered little puppy—as promised.
I had my puppy taken care of by Matthew, from ATW 3 weeks ago. Everything worked perfectly well and I am happy with the service provided.My puppy travelled from Tennessee to Maryland and arrived out home safe and well!Thank you!
Matthew with ATW was in charge of delivering my Boston Terrier puppy (bought from Pawrade) and did an excellent job of communicating with me on the ETA, shared the gps tracking so I could follow along on where he was at and in calling me frequently regarding status. I recommend ATW in their customer service and Matthew for his professionalism and courtesy! Thank you for getting my puppy to me safely and on time! Sorry you had to spend Christmas away from family.
Our new addition to the family was delivered safe and sound. Cody was incredible and was so caring to our new little fur baby. He kept us informed throughout the whole trip. Can you please let me know via dm cause we want to give Cody a gift
I was worried. New puppy. Transporting from breeder in Wisconsin. What could go wrong? That’s right, 101 things. As it turned out, 101 things went right especially the driver who kept in touch every step of the way, was efficient but very cordial during delivery. A smooth, painless experience for puppy and owner.
Very highly recommend! When I contacted ATW for a puppy transport, I spoke with Kris and Maddie who were so easy to deal with and did a fantastic job coordinating the transport. CJ Peavy was the transporter. I can't just call him a driver because he was so much more in taking care of our puppy for a long journey. There was a level of care and concern for the safety and well being of our pet that made the several days long trip stress free! We had a prior transport over a year ago with different company that was horrid. Excellent transport!
Matthew picked up a puppy from my kennel on 12/18/2020. He was very professional. The van was very clean and all the pups looked great as I peered in the door. This is my 2nd experience with ATW and I was pleased both times. I definitely recommend.
A long journey for our 2.8 pound Mini Chihuahua.From Las Vegas to Boca Raton FL.Every step of the way ran smooth . Keith the driver was so nice and kept in touch with us .I can’t thank him enough .Peanut arrived early happy and healthy . Thank you so much from the office workers to Aaron the first driver who took him to MO . ATW did a fantastic job .
I called many companies to get my puppy delivered clean safe and with love along the way. I’m so glad I found ATW I was very impressed with all the service they provided the communication level and when my puppy arrived she was happy clean and safe
Your driver was very accommodating. Kept me well i formed as to arrival time. And was very pleasant when delivering our puppy. I would recommend your company to any friends looking for your service. Once again, thanks for making this process easy.
Absolutely perfect in every way! Total attention to detail and CJ Peavy took such loving care of my puppy as if it were his own! CJ kept me updated with adorable pictures and was so accommodating with the delivery time. He really made the entire experience more of a joy and my sweet puppy was in loving hands the entire time, thank you CJ!!
CJ is a great driver who handled Riley in the best manner possible and arrived 2 days earlier than expected. My family and I couldn't be happier because of his delivery. Even with the pandemic, his delivery made everything feel better.
My puppy arrived Thanksgiving night and looked fantastic. She was happy, clean, and well cared for. CJ obviously cares greatly for the animals in his care, and it is reflected in how happy my puppy is! I wasn’t sure what to expect through this whole experience but I highly recommend their service. Awesome job, CJ and ATW!
CJ was awesome...he kept us informed, he beat his arrival time which was unbelievable, especially because of Thanksgiving day. The puppy was happy, clean and excited and my wife was over the moon with the overall experience.I would highly recommend CJ and ATW.
I was really impressed with ATW. The driver, Matthew Kimble, did a great job keeping us updated on our puppy’s arrival date and the time he would arrive. It was great having our puppy delivered right to our front door and my family and I also appreciated precautions taken to adhere to COVID standards. Matthew was very friendly and informative and it was clear he cared and loved the animals he was transporting! Our puppy came clean, happy and has transitioned well to her new home. Thank you Matthew!
Jessica did a great job keeping us updated on our puppy’s arrival the entire trip! She delivered our puppy not only a few days earlier then planned but on Thanksgiving! I appreciate each text with how far away they were! Puppy arrived clean and a little scared, but quickly pepped up! Thank you jessica!
I purchased a puppy this past week. I was told that it would be delivered by ATW . I checked them out on the internet and found them very credible.I was told by the breeder I would be informed of the shipping status on a certain time and date. I was contacted by ATW and Informed of the process and how I was to be kept up on the status of my dog.I was surprised to hear from them constantly and updated for the next couple of days. I wa over joyedto see CJ Peavy come to my house a little after midnight to deliver my dog in excellent health and frisky as ever.Thank You ATW for the great service and excellent communication all through the process.Tom. J.
Matthew with ATW was fabulous! He kept in great communication in bringing our sweet girl home to us. You could tell she was well cared for and happy when she arrived. The transport van looked very clean from where I was. Thank you to all!
ATW made our first time puppy purchase experience go seamlessly. Jessica was an incredible driver. She had great communication and was able to deliver our puppy an entire day sooner then expected. She was sure to text us often as she approached closer so that we could assure someone would be home. We would 100% recommend ATW to anyone needing pet transportation.
Our pup’s driver, George, was so friendly and helpful! With 2 excited kids (and a more excited husband) it was so refreshing to speak directly with him and get updates as he made his trip! Thanks for making this such a great experience!
ATW was a Great choice to pick. I am so happy that my puppy finally arrived in my arms. CJ, who drove the puppy right into my arms, was very courteous, took great care of Lucky during the travel. When I brought Lucky home, within minutes he was playful and wagging his tail, which meant that his travel was easy and with no stress at all. He kept in touch with me few times a day from the moment he had Lucky in his posetion. I would recommend ATW for all your animals transportation, as they are definitely take great care of the little ones that they are transporting. Thank you again ATW, for setting this up and Thank You CJ, for bringing my baby safe and happy 12 hours before the schedule. Very Truly Yours!Beata Toniuk
Driver, cj peavy was amazing. Puppy arrived happy and healthy....and bonded to driver! Clearly he had been well cared for on the long trip from South Dakota. I was updated throughout the trip and assured that all was well. I was so pleased with the whole process!!
We had a great experience with our driver Keith. He delivered our furever friend with consistent communication, a positive attitude & made sure our little guy stayed happy & healthy during his travels. So thankful!

Had a great experience with ATW, their customer service was super friendly and not pushy at all, and their drivers were very caring and responsive to all my questions and concerns. We had to transport our family dog who is a senior and I was so worried about her being in good hands. I was reassured all along the way with great updates. Would use these folks again.
Aarón Barnes delivered and showed genuine care and concern for the puppy and my family. He provided an update every so often and updated the ETA proactively. I would recommend him to anybody and I would trust him with another pet delivery again and again. Kudos to him!
I was kept informed about Sheldons’ trip to Az. From the time he left my sons house in Ohio & all the way till they drove up at my door. By that time I felt like I had already met Jessica. I no she took good care of my Sheldon cause he was so calm when he got here. Not at all stressed out. I only hope all ur drivers r as sweet as she is. I’m so happy she touched our lives sheldons two families and Sheldon himself. Thank u for having such good workers. Thank u.
The communication was fantastic! From the moment she picked up our German Shepherd - Ms. Elke Clementine, she was in contact with us. She was very willing to text or talk with us and very informative as well as professional! Thank you Jessica!
They were great about contacting me from the time they picked my puppy up at breeders to the delivery at my home. Handler Matt was so very nice and let me know how the trip went. He is a breeder himself and shared his thoughts on this tiny bundle of energy he brought to us. Great job Matt! So great to know she was handled with 💕!
Fantastic! My puppy made a long trip and she did great. I feel they took wonderful care of her and she was so happy. I highly recommend ATW. Drivers were pleasant and professional. 10 out of 5 stars. Thank you for everything!!!!!
I do have to say jonathan and his Mate was awsome, they were on time, very polite, and informative, Kept up to date on all travel. Would highly recommend this company and these driver's. Thank you so much.
They were able to bring our puppy to us well ahead of schedule. She was well cared for- they even gave us a log sheet if when she was given food, water and walked. Our fur baby was happy and healthy despite traveling 4 states to get to is. Thank you so much ATW!!
Jessica took very good care of my puppy she was very caring informative she practiced social distancing I would definitely very highly recommend ATW Thank you Jessica for taking such good care of our puppy⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Had an amazing experience with Animal Transportation Worldwide, Jonathan Slavens was courteous, on time and super gentle with my pet. Gave me a call to let me know he was heading our way and what day to expect him, then he send me a text when he was an hour away. Thank you. I highly recommend this service to anybody, looking for a great and kind travel experience for your fur baby.
Thank you for taking such good care of Emmie. She is doing really well. Although, she does not like her crate right now. If I were in a kennel on a road trip for for three days I wouldn’t either. After the first night she was much calmer and she is happy as can be. Thank you, Jonathan for getting her to me safely! You were very kind and clearly love what you do.Great communication via text msgs a plus. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
5 stars!!! Best service to transport puppies. Our puppy’s driver, Mathew, was super nice and communicated his arrival in advance multiple times. I was not worried at all about the puppy’s safety. I would absolutely recommend this service! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Keith is fabulous! He takes pride in his work and cares for each and every puppy. The entire time that my Newfie puppy was traveling Keith either called or texted to inform me of his location. My puppy arrived in beautiful, healthy, happy condition. I highly recommend ATW and Keith.
Very reliable, organized and easy pet transportation. Our golden retriever arrived happy, well fed and not stressed out! I was pleasantly surprised with how well adjusted the puppy was after traveling a few days! Matthew K was great! Friendly and easy going. Very rewarding experience!! Thank you!!
Matthew was awesome! He was incredibly communicative through the end of Beau’s journey home. When he arrived at 2 AM he was in great spirits and so sweet and gentle with our new little boy. He has the perfect demeanor to be handling such precious cargo. He gets an A+ from us. Beau is thrilled that Matthew brought him home.
Great service. My driver Phil kept me informed of my Gabriel eta. He took his time to explain everything that I needed to know about Gabriel. Phil, you made my day because I was able to surprise my family a day earlier. I will use ATW for any of my pets transportation from this day onward. Thank you, Phil and ATW.
The lady melody picked up my baby and she was super nice to me and answer my question about the travel and she loved the pet babys and like me wanted them safe the whole trip and she loved her job . She done a great job and a very nice person thank u all
ATW transported my little “Peanut” a 12 wk old tiny Yorkie. They kept in contact with me the entire way by phone and by text.Peanut arrived healthy and happy and full of energy. The van they transportThe puppies in is quite impressive. I would highly recommend them.
I am very grateful to the wonderful service that ATW provided for my new little puppy! The driver took excellent care and she was very happy and healthy when she arrived. And he communicated with me as to his location and expected arrival along the way.
Excellent service from start to finish. The driver Jonathan kept me posted the entire way and the new love of my life, little Rigsby arrived safe and sound. I highly recommend ATW for any pet transport you need to do.
Kudos for Susan and Maddie for helping me to set up the transport for our pooch. They were very polite and knowledgeable. They were able to transport our boy with just a few days notice. Jarrad kept in touch throughout the entire trip from Arizona to Wisconsin, via texts and phone calls. I am very happy with the service and would definitely recommended it to others.
Animal Transportation Worldwide was excellent. Benjamin kept me informed on travel progress and my dog all the way from Missouri to Maine. He is a kind and compassionate dog lover and a credit to this company. I wouldn't hesitate to use this company again.
Jarradd was the best. We were able to track with gps the trip from California to Tenn.While we only fostered for four days or so that little puppy arrived safe and happy into the arms of our grandkids. Highly recommend ATW and especially Jarradd.
My family moved from New York City to Atlanta and ATW handled transportation for our family dog. She’s nearly 15 years old so travel takes extra care. I secured the first class service and was not disappointed. The drivers were up to the task of caring for an elderly pet with well-timed walks which they shared via text. I would definitely recommend to others looking to transport their beloved pet.
My puppy was shipped from Louisiana to Connecticut. Puppy arrived in five days. The customer was very happy to see she arrived safely. Thanks Frank, for texting with me letting us know when you were arriving.
Best experience we have ever had transporting our dog. You can see that they are true animal lovers and want the best for your pet. 100% they know what they are doing and they kept me updated with their auto updates throughout all times so I could be sure that my dog is safe and is taken care of. Great service! Highly recommended!read more
They were incredible!! Tara and Kendra Bent over backwards and held my hand the entire way. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to ship a pet. I appreciated there hard work for a very successful outcome.read more

WOW! That is all I can say about this amazing company! From the very beginning I was treated so well and all of my questions were answered in a timely fashion. I spoke with Tara the majority of the time and she is such a sweet girl and you could tell she had my pets best interest in mind! Then the amazing driver, Richard took such great care of my per during the drive. I cannot thank this company enough for bringing my family member home to me! If you want top of the line service, this is where you need to go! Thanks again, ATW, look forward to doing business with you in the future!read more
Our doggo is officially Vermont Bound 😍❤️!!! We could not have done this without Animal Transportation World Wide and our driver Jesse! Zoey’s care taker was wonderful and so understanding with her anxiety. we were extremely nervous to send our girl across country, but Jesse did a PHENOMENAL job caring for her. We received constant communication, photos, and even a video chat call. Zoey made it to VT in a beyond reasonable time frame. We could not be happier with this company and this wonderful person! If anyone is in a bind or looking for military transportation for your animals I HIGHLY recommend this company! We would have never made it across country in the short time frame we have with an infant and dog, so this company truly saved us 👏🏻🎉read more
We had to transport our Apollo from WA to Tx since we were relocating and could not get him booked on our flight to Houston. I was very apprehensive to let Apollo go with a stranger. But Jesse did a great job , sent daily pictures of Apollo and he is now back home with us and a very happy pup. I will recommend ATW to all my coworkers and friends who relocate across the globe.read more
Jesse provided professional and courteous service from pick up to delivery. He sent me updates-text messages along with pics of our chocolate lab every day. Outstanding service and strongly recommend you ask for Jesse.read more
They are all very professional. Abbey did a fantastic job transporting my dog for me. Constant updates and pictures (per my request) when she stopped for bathroom breaks for them. Took her on walks as I asked. Was definitely worth every penny! Would absolutely use ATW again!read more
Animal Transport Worldwide did an excellent job moving my cat from NC to NE. Jesse was the driver, and he kept me well informed and arrived pretty quickly. Thanks for the assistance. I'll definitely be using ATW again. The services were greatly appreciated.read more
