Wow ! Moving to another country is a dream come true , but the process could easily be a nightmare. Panama Pet Relocations ensured that our Fur Babies move was Stress free. From beginning to end Mario, Karina and Paola where in constant communication ensuring we had everything we needed to get our babies to Panama from Texas. Moving with myself and my elderly Mom was challenging, and once I contacted Mario he took over with the Team for our dogs. My dogs were lovingly handled from the pick up with Sara in Texas to the delivery into our arms in Panama City . On behalf of My Mom, myself and Especially Bailey and Stormy , Muchas Gracias con armor!!
Panama Pet Relocation did an excellent Job in bringing my dog from Nicaragua to Germany.
I am truly greatful as they worked highly efficient even in sometimes more difficult situations. I felt that my dog was in good hands. Mario, Karina and Paola were basically always available and reacted very quickly to my questions or issues.
This is a trustworthy company that I would recommend without hesitation to anyone in need to transport their pet, highly trained people who know what they are doing.
Also a big thank you to Jose Rodolfo Morales Blanco, the contact in Nicaragua, he took great care when it was needed the most!
Thank you so much guys!!!
They are the best option to relocate your pet, if you have no idea about the process or the required documentation.
The service is good and they take care about your pet. They care for the safety and comfort of the animals and report all time while your pets are in the journey.
Follow-up all along the trip and about documentation process.
I am the Program Manager for SPCA International, a non-profit international animal welfare headquartered in the United States. We run a program called Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide; whereby, we rescue and reunite dogs and cats befriended by U.S. servicemembers while on deployment. We are so impressed by Panama Pet Relocation’s expertise, compassion and professionalism throughout our most recent rescue from El Salvador. They went above and beyond for this special dog’s care. They provided us and the Soldier with non stop updates and heartwarming photos throughout the entire process. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this team and their care. We look forward to partnering up with them for years to come! Thank you again!
Estoy muy agradecida por todo lo que hicieron Mario y su equipo para que Ginger llegara sin ningún contratiempo a su nuevo hogar. Fueron varios meses de preparación , pero tuve siempre la ayuda de Mario. Les estaré siempre muy agradecida y los recomiendo a cualquiera persona que desee mudar a su mascota fuera de preocupaciones con un buen equipo.
We’ve used Panama Pet Relocation for the last few years traveling back to the U.S. from Panama with our dog, Jade. They handle everything very professionally, and we are very pleased with their service.

These people are fantastic, from start to finish. Your pets are part of your family and they understand that. We were so worried about being separated from them. But in the end you come to realize that they were in safe and trusting hands. We will highly recommend their services to everyone.
Thanks to the whole team at Panama Pet Relocation, they did an excellent job at bringing our dog Lilo from Tegucigalpa, Honduras to Seattle, Washington. They kept us informed throughout the whole process and most importantly, took very good care of Lilo on the travel day. Thanks again to Mario and the rest of the team!
Shipped my pet pig from Florida to Nicaragua. It took me months to find a company that was willing to help out and one that had the knowledge to do so. I got in contact with Panama Pet Relocation and they took control of the entire process. I did have issues with customs once the pig arrived in Managua, but they were in contact with me and multiple government institutions all day, everyday until it was all sorted out. Jose Rodolfo Morales Blanco cared for my pet while she was quarantined in a crate for 3 days in Managua. He gave her water, fed her and bathed her and reassured me that she was doing just fine. This was the first time a large pig was shipped as a pet in the country of Nicaragua and I am very blessed that I had such a great team to assist me and Olive to start our lives in Nicaragua. The amount of work that they did to make sure she was liberated is priceless. Now she is a happy pig living on the beach. Thank you very much for your services!
Panama Pet Relocation did an excellent job getting our two dogs from Miami to Guatemala City, Guatemala. We have two larger dogs and one is a Pit Bull. Due to weather restrictions posed by the airlines, we had to find a company who would get them to Guatemala. We were having a difficult time finding a company who would get our Pit Bull, Lexi, on transportation to Guatemala. Just several weeks before our scheduled travel, Panama Pet Relocation took on the challenge with complete confidence. They kept were thorough with what all was required and kept us informed of their status while in transit. Their team member in Guatemala stayed with them from 5:00am – 8pm at the airport in Guatemala as customs worked through their very slow process. We loved that they were delivered to our front door as we are still new to the area and do not know our way around. We were all happy to see each other but the dogs also showed their appreciation to the local team member by giving her kisses before she left. Thank you so much!
Thank you very much, we are happy with the results and the Great Service you gave to Polly.

Ours was a unique story with Panama Pet Relocators. My husband was sailing our boat down to Panama from Florida with our two dogs and a captain and first mate. I flew to Panama as I recently had hip surgery. Things did not go as planned and to make a long story short my husband was in Honduras with our dogs and our boat was on the hard in Guatemala. I had not seen our dogs for over 60 days. Panama Pet Relocators to the rescue!!
Thank you to Mario and his amazing team in Honduras and in Panama. Mario and his team sped things up as quickly as they could to get our dogs from Honduras to Panama!! And not only did his team in Honduras take amazing care of our two dogs, they also bathed and groomed them as it had been over two months since they were bathed!!
Mario and his team reassured me every day on they safety and health and sent me pictures and video of my furbabies.
I highly recommend their team. They are caring and go beyond the extra mile to make sure the pets in their care are well taken care of.
The woman Paola who met us at the airport was amazing and she was truly happy to reunite us with our two dogs. Thank you a hundred times over Mario, You and your team are truly wonderful!!
Panama Pet Relocation are amazing!! I highly recommend them to everyone!! They were prompt, friendly and went out of their way to help me bring my Linda home. I was comfortable the whole time knowing Linda was in good hands. I received daily updates on the process, got a picture of her before she boarded and received a picture video of her. This meant a lot to me, Linda was a stray so I don’t have any puppy photos of her. This video is my only “puppy photo” I will get. It truly meant a lot. Thanks again for everything you guys did! By bringing her home safe, you made one family extremely happy and helped a dog be forever loved!!
Mario and his staff made the relocation of our dog from Panama to St. Louis an easy and stress free experience. Attention to every detail, email and photo updates along the way, professional and courteous in all our communications. I would very highly recommend using Panama Pet Relocation.
Since day 1, having Panama Pet Relocation beside me was an amazing relief. Each member was very professional, helpful, and comforting. I had 3 dogs and a cat to take with me in France and this is a process I could not have done alone. They have managed all the paperwork in a perfect timing and everything was ready for my departure as they promised. Although I had them as checked luggage, Karina texted me to make sure everything was fine before departure, and texted me to check on my arrival too. Not even to mention all the emails I sent with questions that were answered immediately.
I definitely recommend Panama Pet Relocation, my experience working with them was a delight. Do not hesitate any longer, they are the ones you need to make sure your pet family is happily moving with you anywhere. They know what they’re doing and they do it right!
I could never thank them enough for the good work. Thank you Mario, Karina, and Paola!!!
Panama pet relocation services helped us get our dog from Panama to Orlando!!! They did a wonderful job and we would recommend them to anyone!! Thank you again for all you do!!

Hi! I hired them to initially transport 3 cats from Panama to Seattle. It was 3 months in advance and they gave me an discount, which was great. And a few day before the travel, I told them only 2 cats were travelling and they quickly adjusted and gave me some refund, which was a great surprise. At the begining, I was not sure if one of them (disabled) could travel, they got him checked out by their vet to confirm that he is good to travel, before I paid all fees. As a firt-timer, I sent them many emails about everything throughout the process and they responded very quickly. The cat travel including overnight stay in Houston went well and arrived in Seattle as planned. It helped me a lot as I was stressed out with my own move. I recommend people who are travelling alone to consult them early and use their services as needed.
This company knows what they are doing. If you’re transporting a pet I highly recommend this professional team. They knew all the laws, got back to me quickly in all communications, had all the right contacts, had an excellent and helpful staff and were very fair in all their dealings. I would recommend and use them again if needed. It’s a tough decision to leave you pet in someones hands and not know what will happen with the lengthy travel they need to do but this team really made the processes easier and more comforting. Thank you Paola, Mario and Team!
Moving my cat across the world was made so much easier thanks to this team. They were extremely professional, always responsive right away, and kept me up to date through the whole process with pictures and the necessary information for a smooth move. Highly recommend! Muchas gracias!
Outstanding Organization and perfect service. thanks to Mario Vilar and the whole Panama Pet Relocation Team our beloved friends Simba and Ocean Breeze got to Panama in a great shape!!!
Moving to Panama from California was stressful and complicated by itself…add 3 senior dogs and it looks to be impossible! Thanks to PPR our old pack was set up for success on the departure and greeted in Panama City before we could even find our luggage! Paola and her team really went above and beyond helping with our 9 trunks of luggage and 3 dog carriers… into two cars and up two flights of stairs at our apartment! Great customer service! Mario was very patient in the weeks leading up to the departure and answered every question I threw at him. Thanks for getting our four legged family to Panama! You guys are the BEST!
Necesitábamos mover nuestro perrito desde El Salvador hasta Montreal, siendo un bulldog inglés, era muy difícil su traslado tenían q ser vuelos cortos y muy delicados, fue un largo recorrido vía USA, pero excelente, un trato excelente nuestro Champ Ayrton no poda estar mas consentido! Estuvo en las mejores manos, con ayuda de Mario y Monica, en constantes emails y mensajes de WhatsApp, ellos siempre nos mantuvieron al tanto de todo, a pesar de los nervios que nosotros teníamos y la insistencia siempre ellos nos informaron de todo y sin problemas mayores, fue todo un éxito y aquí estamos disfrutando de la nieve, no pudo estar en mejores manos nuestro Champ Ayrton, feliz ya hace 2 meses que está con nosotros nuestro gordito, lo recomiendo totalmente, son excelentes y sin dudas saben lo que hacen, un viaje tan largo lo hicieron ver tan fácil y posible, nos cumplieron nuestro sueño que lo creíamos muy difícil, casi imposible! Mil gracias Mario y Monica!! Estamos muy agradecidos y felices con nuestro gordito en nuestro nuevo hogar juntos.
We had Panama Pet Relocation help us move two cats from Managua, Nicaragua to Houston, TX USA and everything went great with no issues. Mario and José were always very helpful and knowledgeable about the process.
Thank you so much most especially to Mario Villar and Jose Rodolfo for taking good care of our Peppy traveling from Managua to Miami! They do all the travel documents for our beloved dog. We highly recommend them! She is now here so safe and living happily with us! Gracias! – Luis/Grace
Excelente servicio.. la amabilidad insuperable. La atención maravillosa. Es la segunda vez que trabajamos con Pet relocation.. Y la verdad.. las experiencias fueron inmejorables Muchas gracias
Gracias Mario y su equipo mis pugs llegaron felices y sanos a su destino
Viaje largo y agotador pero hicieron todo para suavizar el traslado
I want to thank Mario and his team in Honduras, Josue and his teammate. Great customer service from all involved. Mario answered all my 1000 questions and dozens of emails. First time ever for a move like this and he explained everything and set my mind at ease. Thank you!
Quiero darle las gracias Al señor Mario vilar y su equipo mi familia está infinita mente agradecida ya que me mandaron completos sanos y salvos mis 7 gatitos de panama 🇵🇦 a la Suiza 🇨🇭 muchas gracias son los mejores.
I moved 2 cats from Denver, CO to Bocas del Toro, Panama. Needless to say, I was very nervous! The team was so great and helped me through every step of the process. I got regular updates on how my cats were doing all the way up to checking in to see if we made it to our home from the airport. Great service!
Trasladamos dos perros desde El Salvador a Estados Unidos.
Nuestros perros llegaron en excelentes condiciones y durante todo el viaje Mario nos mantuvo informados.
La comunicación que Mario mantuvo con nosotros desde el primer email fue muy buena y con mucha paciencia contestó las miles de preguntas que le hice, también se aseguró que nuestros perros viajaran la fecha que nosotros teníamos programada.
Mónica en El Salvador también fue de mucha ayuda al preparar los kennels para el viaje y al transporar a los perros desde nuestra casa al aeropuerto.
Recomendamos PPR sin dudarlo.
I needed to move my Labrador retriever from Austin to Santa Ana, El Salvador. Mario did a great job of explaining the process, setting schedules and and making sure that we had all of the proper paperwork. No problems, no surprises, only great communication and service.
Molly was picked up at my home by two wonderful people that made fast friends with Molly. She took the flight from Austin to Houston and spent the night in the United Pet Hotel. The next morning she was on the plane to San Salvador. In San Salvador she was picked up by two more wonderful people and driven through unusually heavy traffic, road construction and extreme delays., but I was kept up to date through the entire process. I always knew where Molly was, and how she was coping with the trip. Delivered to my fiance’s door in Santa Ana, and a picture of the happy group was sent to me.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Panama Relocation to anyone! Mario and his people are the best!
Panama Pet Relocators helped us enormously both coming to Panama and returning to Texas. Mario practically held our hand as we wove our way through the paperwork and proceedures of moving Woody internationally. We know beyond a doubt we could not have done all this on our own.
Greg y Linda
Very friendly and competently team. Mario and Paola managing all Paperwork needed in Panama. They picked up the dog at the Airport and made transfer to the Hotel. Paperwork and all stuff around like talkin to the Airport medical Teammember etc. was done very accurate. Makes Live much easier……every time again. Thanks to Mario and Paola…..
Debi trasladar a Sombra, mi mascota, mestizo de schnauze de cuatro años desde Panama hasta Charlesto y haberlo hecho con Mario, Panama Pet Relocation funcionó de maravilla.
Las instrucciones precisas, recogida puntual y en un vehiculo confortable. Lo mejor de todo fue la iformacion constante y actualizada.
Sombra llegó muy bien y yo sumamente satisfecha con el servicio y agradecida con la constante comunicacion de Mario sobre el estatus del traslado.
No dudo en recomendarlos
We needed to get two cats and an 85 pound dog from San Salvador to Washington, DC in July. Mario worked with us to explain our various options then coordinated the schedule with the airlines and handled the paperwork. Having shipped animals on my own before, having someone else handle all of this made life much easier. I also have to compliment Monica, who was great with our dog and our very nervous cats.
One of the most important things for me is the level of communication from Mario and Monica, they sent pictures and confirmed flight arrivals and departures. I wish every pet shipper I have worked with was as proactive as they are.
We needed to find a way to get our 2 dog’s, Tango and Disco from Dallas, TX to Nueva Gorgona, Panama. After doing much research we called Panama Pet Relocation. From the minute I called and spoke with Mario I knew this was right. Due to the breed of dogs, Boston Terrier, we had special needs. Domestically they could not fly cargo. It was summer and too hot. Mario started planning and came up with a solution. He hired a company to drive them from Dallas to Ft. Lauderdale. In Ft. Lauderdale another company did all of the paperwork prep, Vet exam, USDA stamps and Panama Consulate stamps. Then they were put on a special cargo plane to Panama. Mario’s team met them at the Panama airport for the Vet exam and then drove them to our new home in Nueva Gorgona. Although it was a 10 day process, Mario was on top of every single detail and made what we thought was impossible, possible. We are so amazed how this went so well. Thanks to Mario and his team to reunite us with our Furr Babies in Panama. If you have a need for pet relocation it is a call away and you’ll be thankful for Panama Pet Relocation. Great job Mario!
Great experience! Mario and Monica arranged the transport of my El Salvador rescued street dog flawlessly. Thanks to their efficient and professional service…..one less dog is dying on the streets due to neglect. I could not have got her to the USA without someone there knowing exactly what and how things needed to be done to get all her records and paperwork to the proper channels and the airline reservations booked. Expensive but worth the cost to have my little baby finally in a home and safe here. God bless Mario and Monica. Jesus loves all His creatures and He saves both man and beast~ Psalm 36:6
Our cat Loki arrived safe and sound in London after a very long journey from Colombia. Mario was in touch with us from the beginning to the end of the process, giving us advice about documents needed and always answering my anxious emails very quickly. I highly recommend this service!
My husband contacted Mario to handle our 9 yr old beagle’s (Jackson) entry into Panama last week. We brought him on the plane with us, but after arriving at the airport in Panama City, we were at a loss what to do, and the language barrier would have been a daunting experience for us. Poula met us at baggage claim, and escorted our dog through his process while we gathered our luggage and got through immigration. She met us on the other side with Jackson. Thank you Mario, your team made a real difference in our experience of moving to Panama with our pet.
Panama Pet Relocation
Walked us through exactly what was needed and to expect. Handled the process upon arrival in Panama. Managed to clear our cat faster than we cleared ourselves! Most certainly would use again and happy to recommend.
Mario was awesome. He arranged shipment of my dog from El Salvador to the US last week. She’s doing great! Mario is extremely responsive and organized. The process was seamless. Next move we make we are using them again. It’s worth every penny!
Mario, Thank you for some of the best customer service I’ve seen! From the first message / phone call; you were there, graciously, every step of the way! (Including follow ups after arrival to residence).
For anyone reading this… 100% recommendations for Mario and Panama Pet Relocation!!!
Seamless process, always helpful and reachable. Eddie Napoleon went to Miami from Tegucigalpa without a hitch. Will use them again.
Tuvimos un viaje a asia a ultimo momento y necesitabamos transportar nuestro gato a Nueva York, ya que estabamos contra tiempo Mario fue un apoyo esencial para el transporte. La cotizacion nos parecio elevada pero luego entendimos lo elaborado que era enviar a nuestro mascota. Cabe destacar que en Nueva York habia un tema de temperaturas muy bajas la cual cambio la fecha del transporte, sin embargo Mario nos mantuvo informados de los detalles que iban surgiendo. Mario tambien nos apoyo con la documentacion que necesitabamos ya que nosotros tuvimos que viajar dias antes que nuestra mascota y el se encargo de buscar y llevar documentos. Estamos muy agradecidos con toda la gestion y recomendamos Panama Pet Relocation.
When I first started looking into the process of shipping our dog from Panama to the US, it looked so daunting! I was advised by my employer to contact Copa Cargo. I’m sure there are many people who have had perfectly good experiences with Copa Cargo, but several colleagues who had used them told me that it took weeks just to communicate with them. I happened to come across a recommendation for Panama Pet Relocation and contacted Mario. He responded to my email within an hour of receipt. He answered all my questions promptly and really made me feel good (and at peace) about the decision to go with Panama Pet Relocation. The day of pick-up came and everything went smoothly. Noah arrived in Miami early the next morning, safe and sound. Everything went without a hitch! Many thanks to Mario and his team!
Alice Fugate Seddon
El servicio fue genial , un equipo que trabaja de acuerdo a los estándares de excelencia, mi mascota se sintió como en familia, la información del viaje fue en todo momento, cuidaron cada detalle, algo que me encantó, fue que cuando salí a recibirlo, estaba fuera del Kennel, la persona que me lo entregó lo traía en brazos, fue como si solamente hubiera salido a dar un paseo!!!. Realmente quedé muy contenta con el servicio!!!, muchas gracias!!!
Maria Julia Quiroga
Mario was amazing! Helped me bring two stray beach dogs that I fell in love with out of El Salvador. Very professional, very responsive and very flexible! Thanks so much for going above and beyond. LOVE THEM!
In late February of 2017, my wife and I relocated back to the United States from Panama. Three years ago we shipped our two American Allaunt dogs with us. After seeing how horrified and traumatized our dogs were on arrival, I promised myself that I would use a more professional company on the return trip should we ever need to.
From what I noticed, there were really only two to choose from. Having used the other on the trip to Panama., I opted to use Panama Pet Relocation instead.
I made contact with Mario Vilar, and seemed to become friends almost immediately. His outgoing personality, level of professionalism, and attention to every little detail required was quite impressive. He basically took my hand and walked me through every aspect of the required paperwork process in order to meet our deadlines.
Since I was shipping two dogs through his company, I thought I would ask if he might consider offering a discount. He immediately responded and did offer a substantial discount. I really was not expecting such a positive response.
The day of our travel, I brought the dogs to the Cell Phone parking lot at PTY Tocumen Airport and was informed of exactly who I should be looking to meet up with by name and described motor vehicle.
The employees were on time and very professional. It is said that we get judged by the company we keep. That statement was a direct reflection of of the quality of their services provided. I was very comfortable leaving my pets with this company although my flight departed hours before my pets did.
Mario was in communication with me up until my flight departed with photos of the dogs resting happily out of their kennels. As ‘parents’, I know this is very important to those of you that also must make such an important decision when shipping your pets.
What a difference! Our dogs arrived happy, healthy, intact and ready to get home when we picked them up in Florida.
In closing, I would absolutely recommend Panama Pet Relocation to any and all ‘parents’ shipping their pets to or from Panama. I would not suggest using any other company based on my personal experiences. I enjoy giving credit where credit is due, and Mario Vilar and his team deserved nothing less than a 5 star review.
Thank you all at Panama Pet Relocation!
I come to Mario for all my complicated pet moves — first from Korea to Paraguay, then two years later from Paraguay to the US. I really appreciate the door to door service, attention to detail, careful coordination with airlines, and constant updates. Most important, I appreciate that my golden retriever arrives happy and well after long flights and multiple transits thanks to Mario’s extensive network of five-star support staff around the globe. So grateful for such excellent service!
Mario arranged for our dog, Bobby, to travel from Panama to Houston a few weeks ago, and we could not recommend their service highly enough. From the quote process all the way to the follow-up after receiving our dog in the US, Mario was extremely diligent, responsive and showed a genuine concern for our dog’s wellbeing. Do not look elsewhere, your pet will be in the best hands if using Panama Pet Relocation! Thank you so much for making Bobby’s trip as stress-free as possible!
