Looking To Bring Your Pet Into Canada?

We can help

All pets entering Canada must report to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), and possibly the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) by way of a formal declaration, as well as be transported by a live animal carrier. We will help you with all of it.
Note: During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the border between Canada and the US remains closed to non-essential travel. This is affecting Canadian buyers of animals bred in the US as they are unable to drive across the border to pick them up. Many new owners are wondering how to bring their pets home to Canada.

“What didn’t PCB do for us? This company went far and above the call of duty for us. Not only did they call in a driver on the weekend when they are closed to make our puppy delivery happen, they kept track and kept in touch on the phone to make sure everything went smoothly. The driver was so nice and friendly it put us at ease that our puppy was in good hands. Bottom line this would have not happened especially during covid with out them helping us out. It was a ton of leg work but was made easy with their help. Thankyou Donna and PCB so much! You made a family Christmas dream come true!”
