About Qualified Pet Services

Qualified Pet Services (QPS) has been operating for over 20 years and we were the first MPI approved animal quarantine facility in New Zealand. We also provide domestic boarding facilities for short or extended stays.

Our premises are located on a sprawling, leafy five-acre property in Takanini, south of Auckland City and only a short 20-minute drive from Auckland International and Domestic Airports. We are approximately a 5-minute drive from the Takanini Off-Ramp on State Highway 1.

Cat and dog quarantine in New Zealand

Of all pet imports into New Zealand, 90% will disembark in Auckland, making our pet quarantine facility the most convenient and least distressing for your pet. QPS will greet your pet at Auckland airport immediately after clearing customs and transport them to our approved quarantine facility. This eliminates the stress of your pet waiting for a connecting flight.
