Although we ship in Canada weekly, we only periodically ship overseas/internationally to other breeders who we have a long-standing, established breeder-to-breeder relationship with.
We do not ship personal pets to the USA but many American pet owners, come here to our home to purchase pets from us. We certainly welcome anyone interested in one of our pets, to call to schedule a visit at our home in Niagara Falls, Canada. Before calling us please take a few minutes to review our website. Our website is usually updated several times a day. Every animal featured on our website, unless otherwise indicated, is weaned and is available for viewing.
We live in Niagara Falls, Ontario, only a few minutes to the closest border crossing. Our home is situated very close to the actual falls and tourist area so why not do some sightseeing while you are here.
We do bring pets home with us from the USA but being that we do not ship or deliver animals into the USA, we don't have much of a need to keep up with current USDA regulations. However, many of our animals do go to live in the USA and we often get feedback from people who have purchased animals from us in the past.
We have been told by some of the Americans who have purchased a pet from us that it is usually very easy to bring many animals into the USA, if you follow a few simple steps.
Apparently.... animals entering the USA do require inspection but the regulations and inspection differs among species.
When crossing at Niagara Falls, you will likely be required to fill out a form and then go to the USDA inspection site located on Whitmer Road.
They have regular scheduled hours Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) between 8:00am and 4:00pm and no appointment is required if you are crossing between 8:00am and 2:00pm. As I understand it there is a small fee if done during regular business hours. However, if you cross after hours you must call the vet first and schedule an appointment and the after-hours fee is also applied. I suggest that you ask about the fee during your phone call.
Before you make plans to come to our home to pick out a pet we strongly urge you to call USDA-APHIS just to make sure that the regulations governing the Importing and Exporting Live Animals have not changed. We have posted the numbers below.
