Welcome to Global Paws!

Global Paws is a professional and caring pet travel company that will help you to relocate your dogs, cats and other family pets to your new home… either in another country or another city within South Africa.

Global Paws is here to safely and ethically take care of the entire process of your pet transportation services. We are a South African-based family business created over 30 years ago to provide you with the most professional animal travel services locally and internationally.

Global Paws was born in 1989 and since then we have shipped over 50 000 pets all over the world and in South Africa.

Currently we have offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town with a combined team of 27 pet lovers who are dedicated to making sure that your pets’ journey is effortless for you and a joyous reunion event for them. Our company motto is: HOME IS WHERE YOUR PET IS. Every decision we make is based on this statement as we honestly believe that a pet completes a family. Every day we send or receive pets, either from international or local destinations, and see that the reunion with beloved furry friends is a very emotional and rewarding event for both the pet and its family. We are and will always be happy to take part in this unique experience.
