Much before Manoir Kanisha Kennel was built, we (Tim Harris and Nicole MacDuff) have been relocating and shipping dogs, cats and other pets since 1970. We started in Pet Relocation more then 45 years ago so, we do have lots of experience.

Also, we have been members of the International Pet Animal Transportation Association (IPATA) for many years. We are respected specialists in International Pet Relocation. Have confidence in us because we can solve your logistical transport problems as well as assuring a safe and comfortable trip for your dog, cat or any other pet.

Every country is different, as well as the routes for delivery, and various countries’ regulations to import pet animals can change at any time. Our relocation services include the arrangement of all the necessary export, transit and import documentation for more then 75 countries.

Thanks to our IPATA international network of members, we can offer a complete door-to-door service. If you prefer to carry out some of the procedures yourself, we can guide you in performing special steps of your choice. At Manoir Kanisha, we have all the different sizes of commercial flight kennels that meet the specifications of the Live Animal Regulations (LAR) of the International Air Transportation Association (IATA). We can construct custom made containers that meet the particular needs of your best friend, whether it is a tortoise, bird, rabbit or any other animal.

To learn more, read our chapter on Pet Relocation. On request, we can provide a free estimate specific to your needs. Just complete our PET RELOCATION QUESTIONNAIRE.

“Dear Mr. Harris: 

My fiancee and I just wanted to thank you infinitely for all of your help. Everything went really well in Tokyo.  Much better than I had anticipated.  I did not wait for more than an hour at the animal quarantine service and everything went extremely smoothly. 

Now we are home in Osaka and our three cats have been exploring the apartment for a half hour.  They’re all very happy, we are so surprised.  It’s as if we were never separated, they are not scare at all. You’re right about the state of BOO’s fur,  it’s extremely matted so I am going to get her groomed at a nice little vet by my place this week, then BABYCAT the following week. We are also going to look into dental cleaning and we already bought some toothbrushes/paste for the cats. Thank you again, so very much, from the bottom of our hearts.

I was very pleased with all the hard work you put into the cages, how organised and prepared they were both inside and out. We can tell that you care a lot and this makes us very happy. We will send you more photos but for now, BOO really enjoys her new closet/scratching post space. Taking a little rest after exploring every square inch of the entire apartment. Thank you so very much, again!”
