Just a quick note to thank you and the team for the excellent service provided getting our cats (and us!) safely back to UK. Courier S was great company and we felt like long lost friends when we finally said goodbye at Kingston! I would certainly not hesitate to recommend your company to others.

Vernon & Margaret (We helped move their cats and them from Nigeria to Paris and on to the UK)

We met Animalcouriers in Volos to hand over our dog Robbie and cat Nala for their journey back to the UK. To say I was emotional and worried is an understatement, but after meeting couriers J and M I felt so much better as I could tell they were in very good hands. Courier J kept us updated of their journey regularly and was even good enough to look after them both in the UK for us until we got back. I can't really express how grateful we both are to Animalcouriers for such a personal and professional service, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else. It's always an emotional time but it was made so much easier with their help, thanks guys you were great!

Andrea & Tommy (We moved Robbie & Nala from Greece to the UK)

Thank you for transporting Pantera over from Milan for us. I was amazed at how calm and good she looked after such a long journey. I particularly want to thank the courier who brought her over. Pantera has settled into life in England with no problems and was pleased to be reunited with all of us once again.


Thank you so much, my fur babies all arrived far more chilled than I'd ever hoped and seem to have taken the whole thing remarkably well. They all settled down in their new home quickly and even Teddy, who was way more worried than the others, calmed down quickly. Thanks for taking such good care of them — and for putting up with Herbie's singing!!

Tracy (We moved Tracey's six cats from Sussex to Bridlington, where she's setting up a cattery)

Thanks to courier M's excellent driving and courier J's great organisation and planning, the journey from UK to Malta went very smoothly without a hitch - apart from the weather! The animals coped well, better than I thought they would. Even my catfish and axolotls were unfazed by the journey.

All my turtles and tortoises have settled down quickly in their new home and are making the most of the unseasonably warm weather here - 20' in November! They enjoy basking in the sun for hours next to my huge south facing picture windows. Snails are well too.

Lovely to see Ophelia reunited with her loving owner - she's a beautiful cat and I got very attached to her on the journey to Malta (lots of tickles and cuddles on rest stops).

Gerry (Gerry and her 65 tortoises and turtles of various types, 12 axolotls, 13 fish and quite a number of invertebrates, including some Giant African land snails travelled with us from the UK to Malta)

Thank you courier S for bringing Poa and Avi from Gothenburg to Manchester. They came to their new home safe and happy. Thank you also for taking them to your own home overnight.

Poa and Avi will absolutely travel with you guys again, should the need occur!
They are now happily running around in their new garden and enjoying the huge nearby park.

Cecelia & Jeff (Poa and Avi travelled with Animalcouriers from Sweden to the UK)

THANK YOU for being so wonderfully efficient and reliable throughout the process of moving Bear and Dynamite to Paris! The family were so happy to be reunited with them, and it helped enormously to know once the ball was rolling, I didn’t have anything to worry about.

Lucy (Bear and Dynamite travelled with us from the UK to Paris)

Thank you so much once again for this perfect voyage that you organized for Bibi, you provide a truly serious and loving service for animal travel, I might even come and stay in your van soon :-)

Alex (Bibi travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to France)

I'd just like to say many thanks to couriers S and L for getting Jack and Athena safely back from Portugal. They're both settling in now although the British weather is not quite to their liking. They are also slightly bemused by the cows in the field at the bottom of our garden. Your service was very efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend Animalcouriers to anyone looking for animal transport from abroad.

Fiona (Jack and Athena travelled with us from Portugal to the UK)

I want to thank you for the way you cared for my big fellow. The trip was in very good conditions and we are very happy to be with Jedi in the UK. Keep going, you are doing a great job!

Joanna (Jedi travelled with us from Portugal to the UK)

I would like to congratulate the team for their wonderful care of Peewee and Belinha. They were so relaxed and happy when they got home, even after three days of travelling. My mother, who sent them to me, was instantly so very satisfied. And she was so nervous during the days before. Thank you and I will definitely recommend to all! Five star service!

Maria (Peewee & Belinha travelled with us from the Portugal to the UK)

A very sincere thank you! Donna is extremely happy in her new home in the UK, but not as happy as her two young best friends. The girls are thrilled to be back with her again.

Donna and the girls (Donna travelled from Sweden to the UK)

I want to thank you for bringing Benji to me. It means the world to me that he is by my side.

Catia (Benji travelled with us from the Spain to the UK)

The grand reunion took place as planned and Bart has made himself at home. He obviously travelled first class in 5-star luxury. Many thanks to you and your team. I will certainly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone we know looking for pet transport.

Joe (Bart travelled from the UK to France)

We would like to thank you sincerely for taking care of Nellie and Bonnie and delivering them safely to us. When we started to plan the move they were our main concern, but we were confident that they would be ok with you, which enabled us to concentrate on the move itself. We wish you much success in the future, and will readily recommend you to anyone who needs an animal courier.

Val and David (cats Nellie and Bonnie travelled with us from the UK to Spain)

Just a few words to thank you and your team for taking so much care of Nina during her trip to London. Nina arrived in a very good shape, she spent the entire next day sleeping on my bed. Now she has started her normal life and routine in our new place (like stalking people from the window). In case of future needs I know who to call.

Sandro (Nina travelled with us from Italy to London)

Cooper made it home safe and sound and very happy. He is hanging out with our family in Ohio until we pick him up in a few weeks. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We couldn't be more happy with how he was cared for on his journey. From the pictures you posted it looked like he was having a blast and made some new friends.

Scotty (Animalcouriers drove Cooper from Italy to London and arranged his flight from Heathrow to Ohio)

I'm pleased to tell you that Millie arrived safe and well in Calgary. It was a lovely family reunion at the airport! Thank you so much for everything you have done to get her to Canada smoothly. It feels like home now she's here!

Jane (Animalcouriers arranged for Millie to fly from England to Canada)

May we say a huge thank you to Animalcouriers for the wonderful service you have offered us, from the first days back in January when we first contacted you about transporting our much loved family, to the moment they were delivered safely and in great shape to our door. After some incredibly stressful and emotional moments whilst relocating back to the UK from Greece, we are all very happy and looking forward to our new life, and would like to offer our eternal gratitude to Animalcouriers and in particular to couriers J and M for their dedication to our cat family whilst in their care. Keep up the fantastic work!

Linda and Terry (Lily, Ollie, Charlie, Ouzo and Daisy travelled with us from Skiathos in Greece, to the UK)

Just wanted to tell you Bob arrived, and he's ok. Thank you so much for all your help over the past 6 months, it's been hard going at times but at least he's there now. Will you also thank courier S again — you can tell she loves animals.

Ann (Bob the Shih Tzu flew from the UK to Australia)

Thank you very much for all the arrangements that were made to bring Paddington to Windsor. We were very pleased to see him arrive safe and sound. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone moving from Geneva with a pet.

Margaret (Paddington travelled with us from Geneva to Windsor)

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the safe delivery of Florence and Lucca to us. They have clearly been exceptionally well looked after while in your care, and they are now both happily exploring their new home. We are loving having them back in our lives.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your service to anyone wanting their pet transported with professionalism and, most importantly, top notch care.

Helen (Lucca and Florence travelled from the UK to Tuscany, Italy with Animalcouriers)

Love the blog updates! Molly looks very happy and we are looking forward to collecting her tomorrow. You guys have done a great job and helped us out tremendously when we had slight translation issues.

Kayleigh (Molly, the Eurasier puppy, travelled with us from Madrid to Glasgow)

Many thanks for all the Giuseppe pictures which made our days much happier and easier while we were waiting for him and we could follow the trip. We are very grateful to you for looking after Giuseppe so well.

Linda, Alejandro and Giuseppe (Giuseppe travelled from the UK to Murcia, Spain with Animalcouriers)

I just wanted to say a big thank you for taking good care of Freddie & George. They flew from Manchester to Chicago. What a great professional, caring business you run, from beginning to end.


These experts from Animalcouriers were great. I picked them because they already had experience with getting a dog to Bermuda via London Gatwick and, as a bonus, their price was reasonable. It was professional service with a good dose of kindness and understanding about the stress of a move. I would recommend them and use them again. The dog was happy to go with the courier who got him and after the flight the next day, he looked well-cared for. I think he even got a home grooming because he smelled lovely.

Safriti (Capability flew from the UK to Bermuda with the help of Animalcouriers)

Thank you for the safe delivery of Ilkie, wonderful service provided by all at Animalcouriers.

Eileen (Ilkie travelled to John O'Groats from France with Animalcouriers)

Thank you for all your help and care in getting the animals here — we definitely couldn't have done it without your guidance and attention to detail.

Sandra (Cassie, Nya and 3 cats flew from the UK to Sydney with the help of Animalcouriers)

I just wanted to thank you for looking after Scooby on his little adventure to Gibraltar. He looks in great condition and is in fine form snooping around his new home.

Ryan (Scooby travelled from the UK to Gibraltar with Animalcouriers)

Its been a wonderful experience working with you at Animalcouriers, I shall certainly recommend you. I'm hooked on the blogs now too, I've signed up to get them!!!!

Susie (Hugo, Red and Ruben travelled from France to the UK with Animalcouriers)

Loved seeing my 3 boys in transit this afternoon, they look relaxed and comfy! So glad you were recommended to us. Much better than being squashed up in little cages in the car with us amongst all our belongings!! So looking forward to having them at home soon. You really are wonderful people and do great work. Thank you

Susie (Hugo, Red and Ruben travelled from France to the UK with Animalcouriers)

Thank you so much for the safe delivery of our much loved girls, and the care and love you shared with them — by far the best way we have travelled them.

Sheila & Jill (Cali, Scali and Miski travelled with us from Jersey to Crete)

Animalcouriers have been amazing all the way through some very complicated beaurocracy issues that I could not have sorted out alone here in Ecuador. I want to recommend them to everyone. Despite my having to change my plans last minute due to some beaurocracy laws in Ecuador, Animalcouriers have been extremely helpful to me. They are fast to respond to document problems and help out no matter what, and are very responsible. If you hire their services you can have peace of mind with your pet in their hands.

Carla (Carla travelled with Honi by air from London to Ecuador)

A huge THANK YOU to you all at Animalcouriers for assisting us in getting Teddy and Ellie from Heathrow to RAF Mildenhall. I truly appreciated the great communication throughout the entire process; it put me at ease (as much as possible:) knowing that the dogs were in good hands. Every time we encountered an issue or change (last minute change in crate sizes, phones that didn't work when we landed, etc.), L responded quickly by email and was very understanding and accommodating. Courier R was also patient and friendly despite issues getting on base The pups are doing well and loving the English countryside!


We all want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the wonderful people at Animalcouriers. Special hugs from all of us to courier S and courier M. Thank you so much for the lovely trip. You and all the background organisers have been fantastic. Kitties all took to their new home — no stress — no worries.

Francesca (Francesca and her 10 cats travelled from Switzerland to the Isle of Mull)

Just to let you know everything went fine. Our two cats are now with us and they look happy to be in the UK. The service was five star and I will recommend it.

Rui (Romeu and Pandorinha travelled from Portugal to London)

Thank you so much for all your hard work — without you, I don't think Muffin would have made the flight, so thank you very much, we really appreciate it.

Kevin, Cigdem and Muffin (Muffin flew to South Africa)

Many warm thanks for a job very very well done indeed. When we met up with your catmobile in Glasgow our cats were bright eyed and bushy tailed, which is more than can be said of me after driving down from Forres to Glasgow! If you ever need a recommendation don't hesitate to ask me, I am very impressed indeed by your friendly and efficient organisation.

Ruth (Harlequin and Moonbeam from Brindisi to Scotland)

Everyone at Animalcouriers has been most helpful. We were very impressed with your first class service and your concerns to ensure that all goes as smoothly as possible for us and especially Missy. We thank you for your diligent assistance in getting Missy on her way at very short notice. Clearly a most efficient and caring service.

Linda (Missy travelled from Spain to the UK)

Many thanks to all at Animalcouriers for bringing our little kitten over from Italy. She has settled in already and is keeping the other animals in line, despite her size!

Helen (Rescue kitten Xenia travelled with us from Italy to Northern Ireland in November 2013. She joins the family's existing dogs and cats who travelled with us in 2011 and 2012.)

I would like to say a huge thank you for all your help with sending Jasper to Joburg last week. He arrived safely and is now back in Zimbabwe with my sister, running around with her dogs and enjoying all the sunshine! It seemed like a daunting process but your help and guidance made it so much easier.


Milly arrived safe and sound and settled in imeadiately. She had a great journey and we are so greatful to you all for your wonderful service, from picking her up from the breeder in the UK to her arrival in Venice. Milly is bright and a beautiful bundle of fun and already learnt to walk on her lead.

Lindsey (Milly travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to Venice)

Just wanted to let you know that Sindy has settled so well into her new home. Thenk you very much to all your team for taking care of her and delivering her safely.

Katrina & Sindy (Sindy travelled with Animalcouriers from France to the UK)

Thank you so much for delivering Kiara safely to London from Glasgow. Despite what must have been a long journey for her she arrived fit and well and settled in to her new home straightaway. Sarah was everything one might hope for in a courier – capable, confident, efficient, experienced and reassuring, as well as being warm and friendly. Animalcouriers provides a wonderful service to pet owners and I will be recommending you to everyone. Thank you again.

Maureen & Kiara

Thank you so much for the excellent care you gave my boy Milo on his trip from Lorgues to Lymington last week. I was very worried about how he would be as he's not good with strangers but he was fine and that is down to all of you being so calm, friendly and professional. I can't wait to be reunited with him tomorrow. A big thanks to the whole team for making something very stressful go so smoothly. I will definitely recommend you to anyone needing this kind of service.

Kim and Milo (Milo travelled with Animalcouriers from France to the UK)

Thank you for everything you did in the smooth process of flying Garlic from London to Bucharest. You made what I found to be very stressful the complete opposite. Garlic has settled in well and he is basking in the sunshine. Once again, thank you so much to the whole team.

James (Garlic flew from the UK to Bucharest)

I just wanted to say that Chubbs loved the time you spent together, she looked so happpy and well looked after when we saw her for the first time afer her journey! Before courier S collected Chubbs from Portugal we were so scared to be giving our little princess to a stanger, but you put us all at ease and Chubbs took to you immediately! So thank you from the bottom of hearts, keep up the good work.

Matt, Sonia and Chubbs (Chubbs travelled with Animalcouriers from Spain to the UK)

I just want to say a big thank you for getting Kikouyou to Cambridge. The whole team at Animalcouriers were fabulous. Courier J in particular you were very responsive to my numerous questions and emails (I know there were a lot!!!!). Not only were you professional but also the most competitive quote I received, which I appreciated given I had just moved to the UK and was a bit cost conscious. Courier S was absolutely F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C as well. She updated me on a daily basis on the progress of the journey and you can truly feel she is passionate about what she does. So thank you again everyone. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends and my clients.

Marie and Kikouyou

Rumy arrived safe and sound and she's just settling in and currently sleeping under the bed after exploring the house. Thank you very much for bringing her over safely for us. The blog you guys run shows just how much you actually care about your job and the animals, which is more than I've seen from anyone else! If we ever have to move a pet again it will be you who we will call. Really good job and good luck with all your future trips.

Michael, Clio and Rumy (Rumy travelled from Greece to the UK with Animalcouriers)

You were so good to Angel and the family when you cared for her. We will definitely use you again if we need to, and we always recommend you!

Jo (Angel travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to Spain)

Thanks for everything. An efficient, caring service. I'd certainly recommend Animalcouriers.

Karen, Rick and Tor, who travelled with us from Germany

I'd like to thank Animalcouriers and Traveldog for making this happen. My sis and I are very grateful. Please let me know if I could do something for you. I will definitely recommend Animalcouriers to anybody that needs to arrange travel for his/her pet, and I will keep you in mind for the future.

Olga (Jimmy & Lupi travelled with Animalcouriers from Spain to Calais)

I’m sending this e-mail to thank you all for everything. Short notice to transport my cat Voyou, then issues with the airline going to Dublin which was retraining their staff meant another flight had to be found. I did not expect such a great service and quick resolution but you did it. Amazing team you have.

I always received a fast response from you about all my concerns, and updates about my lovely cat Voyou (photos on your website and comments), this was wonderful. Voyou has been at home for a week and he is enjoying every moment of his life with us and will not get out of my bed. Thanks again and I know I will be using your services again if I need a transporter, and I will spread your company details.

Sabrina and Voyou, who travelled with us from Le Mans to Dublin

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Tyche. She is a darling dog and we all adore her already! We all loved the blog and it was a good way for her new family to get to know her before she arrived. I would recommend you all anytime! And I will continue to try and raise awareness for The Ark and rehoming dogs in the UK.

Wizzy (Tyche was rescued from Corfu)

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to getting Ella to England! She seems to have travelled well, is settling in brilliantlly, and proving quick to learn. She's lovely, and we are very appreciative of all the help we have had to get her here.

Gillian and David (Ella travelled from Greece with Animalcouriers)

Thank you for everything. You went over and beyond expectations. You really made this move possible. Thanks for taking care of our babies.

Sarah (Jack Russels Mack and Millie flew from the UK to New Zealand)

Now we are home and everything went just perfekt. Thank you so much for all help! You have been amazing!

Jenny (Animalcouriers arranged for Jenny's gun dog puppy Vilendal to fly from the UK to Copenhagen)

"A massive thank you to everyone at Animalcouriers. In such short notice you still managed to bring my baby Tristan home safe and sound. I will certainly be recommending you services to my fellow pet owners!"

Claudia, whose cat Tristan travelled with us from the UK to Switzerland

I would like to thank courier S for her wonderful attitude towards our Buster. He is a very special puppy to us. I have every confidence in your service and would recommend you to anyone. It has been a pleasure to let one of my puppies go to a new home with no worries.

Judy (breeder of Buster, who travelled with us from the UK to south west France)

I can't begin to thank you enough for your excellent organization and care of Tiny Tim. The care at the Gatwick home was outstanding. I think he was ready to move in with M and L. What lovely and caring people. He arrived in Tampa ready to go! Happy to be out of the box but in great shape! You made one of the most nerve-racking experiences of my life sooo much easier with your reassurances and prompt response.

Jane (Jane's elderly poodle Tiny Tim flew with Animalcouriers from Faro in Portugal to Tampa in the US, via Gatwick. He stayed for a night with couriers M2 and L, who let him sleep on their bed as he was crying.)

My little girl has been here almost a week now, she's wonderful and so good. Sincere thanks must go to your company and especially courier M2 who cared for her so well. She has such a lovely temperment, he ensured this continued by giving her all the care possible for which I'm very grateful. I will be back again in the future.

June (meet Aharo from Cumiana on her travels with Animalcouriers)

Thank you so much for you kind and caring way you have dealt with Carol's cats on this long trip from North Cyprus. You have both been wonderful and shown lots of compassion to all the animals on board.

Your blog is a great way to keep up to date on whats going on, its very helpful and gives reassurance to all the pet owners.

Although you both must get fazed at some point with the problems you have come up against you always get there in the end.

Keep up the fantastic work you do.

Sandra (meet Carol's cats Floffy, Peggy Sue, Tiny and Choco on their journey from Cyprus with Animalcouriers)

Couriers S and L picked Gato up ahead of schedule and kept in touch each step of the way, and we picked up a happy enough cat from Caterham on time. You should be proud of your organisation - no doubts, no hit and miss, a well oiled outfit.

Gato is taking up a large part of our time - it's like having a mischievous child. He has certainly made himself at home and we have managed to prevent all his escape attempts. He has taken over my favourite chair and has started to attack my grandaughter's toy dog. Another week to go before we let him out. so he can sort out the pigeons in the garden.

David and Marea (meet Gato during and after his trip from Portugal to the UK with Animalcouriers)

Hi A, I am writing to thank you and your whole company in general for the great treatment we have received from you and to tell you that Byron arrived in perfect condition and is now happy to be with us. Thank you very much for everything.

Francisco (meet Byron on his trip)

Hola A, te escribo para agradecerte a ti y a toda la empresa en general el trato que he recibido por vuestra parte y para decirte que byron llego en perfectas condiciones y ahora mismo se encuentra feliz a nuestro lado, muchisimas gracias por todo.

I just wanted to say that I'm very happy with your service. Gwen arrived looking amazing and I couldn't be happier. Thank you for taking care of her, I know she's not always easy as sometimes she barks a lot.

Isabel (Gwen travelled from near Porto in Portugal to Cheshire with Animalcouriers)

I would like to thank Animalcouriers for bringing Lawrence safely to us in Switzerland. The service and care you provided were excellent. It was especially good to see Lawrence's picture on your travel blog - even though my daughter thought she looked like a criminal!! I think that I worried more than Lawrence, as within a few minutes, she was settled and purring. I will always recommend Animalcouriers without any hesitation.

Lydia (Meet Lawrence on the road with Animalcouriers)

Just a line to say we are all home safe and sound. The cats have had an adventure, as you are no doubt aware (if only they could talk!!) but they are absolutely fine and are settling in well.

Despite the bureacratic problems at Bulgaria and the van breaking down, I would not hesitate to recommend Animalcouriers to anyone who is thinking of using them. With every trip from North Cyprus they are gaining experience and I am sure that future trips will be fine. They kept us up to date and reassured throughout the journey and they are absolute professionals, with the welfare of the animals their top priority.

It must have been a stressful and testing time for couriers J and M but at no time did they let that distract them from the task in hand. The expression "Keep Calm and Carry On" must have been thought up with Animalcouriers in mind.

When we collected George and Minky from courier J on Monday she seemed totally undaunted by the events of this trip and was looking forward to the next one.

Also, I wanted to say an enormous thank you to all at KAR for their efforts in getting George and Minky relocated. We are so pleased that we were able to travel when we did and are very grateful. Let's hope that many more dogs and cats from Cyprus are able to be adopted and rehomed with the joint efforts of KAR and Animalcouriers.

Maria, Tim, George and Minky (George and Minky travelled with us from North Cyprus to the UK)

Casey arrived at Philadelphia safely and is now at my daughter Heather's home in Pennsylvania. Heather has pets of her own (a small dog, three cats, a rabbit and a bird), so Casey will think he's at the San Diego Zoo.

This is just part of Casey's grand adventure, for when we arrive in Pennsylvania later this month and collect our car at Baltimore a few weeks hence, we will be driving with Casey to our home in Denver, Colorado – about 1,600 miles. There are many pet-friendly motels along the way, and since I will be retired and in no rush to get to work we'll make a mini-holiday out of it.

I want to thank Animalcouriers for all your help and good care of Casey. If I ever have the opportunity to recommend Animalcouriers to other owners travelling with pets I most definitely will.

Thom and Gail (and Casey)

Amy and Zoe are settling in to their new life in North East England very well. They were both rather 'shell-shocked' when I collected them from the local cattery and brought them here the day after I moved in, but I let them stretch their legs in their new bigger †garden as soon as we arrived and they both explored very thoroughly before coming indoors with me again. They have been keeping very close to me, sometimes both trying to lie on my lap at the same time on the rare occasions when I sit down for a rest from unpacking boxes, but they are quite relaxed and fit after their travels. Thank you for organising it all, and thanks to the couriers who looked after them so well en route.

Jackie (meet Amy and Zoe on the road with Animalcouriers)

"Thank you so much for all your help and efficiency coordinating Muga's trip. I am so thankful for your professionalism and happy with the great way you dealt with everything. I finally have Muga with me, and after having waiting for almost two years you cannot imagine how pleased I am and this is thanks to you all."

Fabiola (meet Muga on her travels with Animalcouriers)

You will be pleased to know that Pia came into the house as if she had always lived here and met all family members (dogs and humans) as long-lost friends. The work you did with her has paid off! She has had a bath, nails trimmed, ears cleaned and two big meals (each the size of her daily allowance!). She is filling out already. Thank you for looking after her so well. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends.


I would like to say a tremendous thank you to Animalcouriers for sheer grit and determination! It was such a stressful time but looking back we were so pleased with your service in very difficult circumstances and grateful that the trip happened in the end. Spooky emerged from her travel case in great condition with a shiny healthy coat and acting gently curious about her new surroundings. A credit to the top quality attention and care she was given during the trip I'm sure! She has settled into her new home very well, it is like she has already been here for years and not just a week!

Faye (Spooky flew from Athens to Thessaloniki, where she joined our road trip to the UK)

Thank you for taking such good care of Barry and Mac. I picked them up yesterday, and they were very calm and in good spirits. They wanted lots of scritches and were very sweet. They had obviously been in good hands.


A very big thank you for delivering our Scooby safely. He had a very long journey from Corfu to the UK, through extremely inclement weather conditions. Since Courier R brought him to our home the little man's tail has not stopped wagging and he has wasted no time in making himself at home! We all would like to thank Animalcouriers for the excellent service you provide. We loved the blogs, looking forward to receiving that email which details their journey, hungrily lapping up any information that came through. We have a warm smile on our faces, knowing our little man has touched the hearts of anyone who has come into contact with him.

Dina & Clara (meet Scooby on his long journey back from Corfu)

I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the fantastic Animalcouriers people who helped me out, everybody was so helpful and caring from day one. When I got in touch with you I immediately had the feeling that your company was the right choice. Within just 24 hours of my first email Stella's place in your van was booked and the countdown started!

Courier S was absolutely fantastic, she stayed in touch with me all the way through the journey, and to be honest she started to reassure me even before the journey started, since I was really nervous ó and anxious about travel sickness, about the horrible feeling of being abandoned that Stella could have had, and many other concerns. But courier S was always there to reply back to my emails almost immediately with sweet words, promising lots of cuddles for Stella.

Also, through the blog updates, I was able to follow the journey, to have beautiful pictures and to feel that S was getting to know Stella's nature and that my doggie was very well looked after.

Stella arrived in great shape and just a bit tired, but it's clear that she was cared for and enjoyed the journey.

Elena, Noemi, Emma & Stella (meet Stella on her journey with Animalcouriers)

It's been a pleasure working with you and you were very accommodating over the last week to get everything arranged. If you ever need someone to provide a recommendation, I am happy to do so.

Jorrit (Jens the cat travelled by air from Norway to London)

My daughter was forced to return to England from Berlin in August. She was very upset because she had to leave her cat Martha behind. She hadn't realised that you had to wait 6 months but that the rules were changing in January. Anyway it was a very stressful time for all and we were relieved to find Animalcouriers who were very kind and helpful from the very start. Martha is now back safely with my daughter. The intrepid couriers drove for a week through terrible weather and brought the animals back safely. We were kept informed as to their progress. We can't thank them enough and would highly recommend them.

Judith, John, Julia and Martha (meet Martha on her travels with Animalcouriers)

I just wanted to send a massive thank you for the wonderful smooth transfer of Buttons from Paris to the Orkney Islands. Within just 5 days of contacting you everything was organised and he was arriving at his destination! Amazing.

Thank you especially to the lovely ladies who undertook the journey - to S for driving through the night to get him back into England as quickly as possible, and for J undertaking the long drive and bravely boarding the North Sea ferry with a gale warning!! I hope the return journey is just as easy.

He arrived at Mum and Dads at about 12:30 am and proceeded to bomb around into every room with his tail right upright and ears pricked up! It was very clear how well he had been taken care off while in your hands and was not stressed or unhappy at all. He already seems happier and is getting settled in very quickly although he was not keen on heading out for his first lead walk today in the hail stones! The warmth of the Rayburn was much more appealing. He has spent the morning watching the birds and loves being back in the country.

Your fast and professional service made our decision to move him much easier and has allowed Buttons to be in a much happier place quickly and efficiently.

I would not hesitate to recommend your company.

Thanks from Lisa, Tim and Buttons (see Buttons on his journey from Paris to the Orkney islands)

Lucy and Penelope have arrived in London safely. I just wanted to say a big thanks to the team at Animalcouriers, I am very impressed with the fantastic services. I strongly recommend the service you provide.

Jessica (Lucy and Penelope travelled from Almunecar in Spain to London with Animalcouriers)

Ulf got here safe and sound. I just wanted to say thanks a lot for all your help and that I was very happy with Animalcouriers!

Billy and Ulf (Animalcouriers transported German Shepherd Dog Ulf from Madrid, Spain to Lyon, France)

Thank you very much for the amazing service provided when delivering our new Chihuahua puppies. The driver was very friendly and the puppies arrived relaxed which helped them settle in very quickly into their new home. Would recommend you to anyone!

Steven (meet the cheaky chappy Chihuahuas on our travel blog)

I just wanted to express my sincerest thanks for your excellent and thoroughly professional service in bringing Lola from Switzerland to the UK. As you know, Lola is a rather elderly and very nervous dog, but from collection to delivery I had the impression she was in safe and sympathetic hands. I particularly appreciated the regular and reassuring updates received while she was in transit. Lola is settling in well to her new home.

David (hear about Lola's journey on the Animalcouriers travel blog)

Thank you so much for the care and attention you gave to Brix as she left the UK, and for coordinating the flights, including to Wellington, so well. It was great to have a company that took such good care of our wee girl. We can tell that you know how special animals are to their owners. Thanks again for the wonderful service.

Fiona, Nick and Brix (meet Brix during her journey with Animalcouriers)

"I would just like to say a big thank you to Animalcouriers and the kennels for looking after Ziggy and the crew for us while we moved. You have done a superb job with Ziggy and it was lovely to see him getting on with couriers L and S when they got here with him. Gizmo and Kato are enjoying bouncing round a much bigger house with loads to explore, and even Podgy the older cat has found a new lease of life, running up and down the stairs and generally enjoying herself. The chinchillas don't seem too worried about anything and have slotted in to their daily routine as if nothing had ever happened.

"Ziggy isn't an easy dog to deal with but you have all given him some extra confidence with people, and I can't thank you enough for that. Again thank you all — I will be recommending you to anyone I can."

Sharon and Pete (meet Ziggy on his travels with Animalcouriers)

Thanks so much for bringing Frodo safely over to us. It was a big trip for him, and it's great to know he was in such good hands. It was a pleasure to deal with all of you, and I will definitely be recommending you should any friends need your services.

Frodo seems well, though is naturally ignoring the lovely new dog bed I bought him and is choosing to lie on the floor beside it! Hopefully he'll settle in quickly to his new home. We're all delighted to have him here.

Fiona (Frodo, an 11 year old Golden Retriever, travelled from Cork to Farnham in Surrey)

Thanks very much for all your help and support over the past month or so guys, really appreciate it as it's been quite a stressful time for me trying to sort it up until now.

You've reassured me and made the whole process much easier.

Gemma (Frieda the Siberian Husky travelled with Animalcouriers from London to Belfast)

A big THANK YOU for everything you have done. Since being reunited with Lennon, we feel very happy. Lennon arrived happy too and in great shape. We are extremely pleased with the service you provided. If ever in future we were to return to Spain, we wouldn't hesitate to use you and recommend you to others.

Blanca, Peter and Lennon (Lennon travelled from Spain to Liverpool)

"Thank you" doesn't seem adequate to express how grateful I am for the fabulous way you looked after me as the expectant mum and Indie during her journey. Indie is settling in with us. She has gone from growling at our small Labrador to ignoring her entirely. I think this is progress and hope they will be best buddies by the end of the week!

Sue (meet Indie on the Animalcouriers travel blog)

Just wanted to say thanks for bringing our little terrapin safe to Barcelona. He's quite enjoying the sun over here, and ignoring us and acting as nonchalantly as always--which proves he arrived in excellent form!

Sole (meet Logo on his journey)

Thank you to the whole team at animalcouriers, you really are the best and we are so grateful for all the work you put in for us. Nothing fazed you and you did everything brilliantly. Thank you, thank you, thank you. As our American grandchildren say You Rock.

Brenda (meet Rocky who travelled from Italy to the US)

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and M for getting Toulouse back to the UK safe and sound. Everything turned out very well in the end. M's speediness meant that we avoided a second trip to CDG which was great. I appreciated your patience and understanding throughout.

Caroline (Toulouse travelled with Animalcouriers from Paris to the UK)

Thanks ever so much for the update, your proffesional services are much appreciated as always.

Would you please pass my regards and thanks to Sarah who I met in Carmarthen yesterday, she was such a lovely, bubbly person, and is absolutely perfect at her job.

We have used you in the past and I would not hesitate to recommend your company Animalcouriers to anybody wishing to export / import any animals in the future.

Roger (two of Roger's lovely Labrador puppies travelled with Animalcouriers from Carmarthen to Sweden)

Although she landed in Bangkok at 2:15 pm, Megan wasn't delivered to us until around 8:30. It took Agility hours to clear her through customs and then they took her back to their office as she looked hungry. After being fed and watered she fell asleep and then got stuck in the evening traffic. She was so excited when she arrived and insisted in going into every room and climbing into every wardrobe just to make sure she hadn't missed anything! Considering the lengthy journey she was in remarkably good shape. The lady from Agility thought Megan was so lovely she didn't even put her back in her box so she made the final leg sitting next to her in the front of their van.

It's wonderful to have her with us again, and thank you so much for all your hard work.

Jan & Oscar (Megan travelled from Gilbraltar to Manchester, then by quarantine van to London Heathrow and onto Bangkok via Frankfurt)

Buddy and Sophie arrived safe and sound this evening. They are adorable and we are all in love! Buddy was barking at the customs officers when they brought their crate out! Lol! They are very happy and healthy. Thank you so much for everything. You guys are amazing and we appreciate everything that you did for us! Your service was first class and we will definitely use you again in the future and highly recommend you guys to others!

(Buddy and Sophie are two Jack Russell puppies who have just flown from the UK to Bermuda)

I just wanted to thank you and the team for taking such good care of Cookie during her travels and making her journey as stress-free as possible (for her and me !). You make a very difficult job seem very easy! I'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who has to transport their pet.

Carla (meet Cookie during her travels with Animalcouriers)

Thank you so much for your brilliant service ! My cats arrived today after 3 months of waiting for them and I am so very happy to have them here !

Thanks a lot to all of you dear animalcourier staff members you did a great job!

Michaela (meet Idefix and Linus on our travel blog)

Just a quick note to thank you so very much for all your hard work and trouble to make Ellie's journey so trouble free. You will be pleased to hear she is well and settling in at home.

Thank you all again for a most efficient service.

Roz (Ellie the Beagle travelled by air from Toronto to the UK)

To Julia and all the other lovelies at Animal Couriers...Thanks so much for your absolutely spot on service, catering to our needs and and more importantly looking after our Jake the Doggy. I've really enjoyed you keeping me updated a long the way...I will be recommending you over and over again. All the best on your continued adventures...

Tabather (meet Jake on his travels)

Just to let yiou know that everything went really smoothly no problems whatsoever!!!! Arrived at Gatwick and phoned the Animal Centre to be told the cats had arrived and collected them straightaway. Thank you all for a really good experience! The cats arrived completely stessless and in wonderful condition.


Just wanted to say a big thank you for delivering Max from Spain. He arrived Happy and Purring.

I would recommend your first class service.

Suzanne (meet the delightful Max on his journey with Animalcouriers)

Just to say thanks for doing great job with Charlie. Much appreciated.

Mark (meet Charlie on the travel blog)

Just to let you know that Rocko has arrived in Guatemala and is now with Erik, so I am very happy and relieved! Thank you for all your help in making it as straightforward and hassle-free as possible!

Margaret (Rocko the Boston Terrier was Animalcouriers' first client to Guatemala)

Thank you so much for bringing Harvey to Switzerland safe and sound. He can now have a good start to a better life!

Stephanie with her Millviews-Caprilli Dalmatians (see Harvey on the blog)

I just want to thank you for getting Millie here safe and well. Thank you also for the wonderful photos of her on your blog – it was reassuring to see these during her trip. I think she had a wonderful journey with you. I would have certainly liked to be at that gorgeous lake – lucky Millie! She is settling in well and is beginning to love exploring the different sights and smells here. I am just so overjoyed to be with Millie again!

Sally (see Millie on her journey)

I am really grateful to Animalcouriers for reuniting me with my babies. I contacted so many agencies and they were the only ones who were able and willing to help.

Throughout the whole experience they understood how troubling it was not just for the animals but also for the owner. J kept me informed the whole time through calls, texts and photos. I was extremely grateful for this. I would definitely recommend them and use them again. I am happy to report that both Zaki and Charly are settling in very well and I am so happy to have them in the UK. Thank you so much.

Stephanie (Zaki & Charly's journey from Morocco on the travel blog)

Just wanted to say a massive thank-you, your service was fantastic the whole way through. You put our minds at rest every step of the way, which is no easy task. You were always so friendly and helpful, to Stewart's parents also, which meant a lot. I would not hesitate to recommend Animalcouriers to others.

Aisling (Charlie the bouncy Boxer dog travelled from the UK to New Zealand)

Thank you so much to you and your wonderful team for taking such great care of Daya. It makes such a huge difference to know she is in such good hands!

Kate & Dimitri (meet Daya on the travel blog)

A very big thank you for the lengths you went to in sorting out my 'mountainous molehill'. All four cats arrived in the UK from France in good physical and mental health – a tribute to your efforts on their behalf.


Me siento feliz de haber conocido una empresa tan seria y eficiente. Com personas tan extraordinarias y consideradas. Es la primera vez que “Porto” se separa de la familia y a pesar de ello Vds. han conseguido que su rabito permaneciera levantado.

Hoy dentro de un ratito, “Porto” estará en su nuevo destino (su nueva casa).

Gracias a Martin a Abi y a la persona que acompañaba a “Porto” y a Martin, de la que no se el nombre.

Son Vds. estupendos.


And the translation:

I feel so happy to have known such a serious and efficient Company. With such extraordinary and considerate people. This is the first time that “Porto” has ever been separated from our family and even then you have still managed to keep his tail up and wagging.

Today, in a little while, Porto will finally be at his new destination (his new home).

Thank you to Martin, to Abi and to the person who accompanied Martin.

You are all marvellous.

Flora (meet Porto on our travel blog)

I want to thank you and your team for putting up with me and my anxiety. This was a very difficult decision for me to make but you made the process easy once I decided. You will never know just how thankful I am for your work in getting little Skip from the UK to Oz. I will recommend your service to others.


Just want to say thank you to you and your team.

Amba made it safe and sound and we made our ferry. She is now home in Ibiza.


It is so nice to be able to follow my “babies”, Lily, Tonka and Amy on their journey to our new country of Portugal. I am sure all the other pet owners feel the same way.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards


We had missed Indie so much since we got here to Gibraltar and are all so happy that she is back with us. She is settling in well to her new home and has had fun this morning exploring the local area.

It was lovely seeing Indie on her journey home through your blog. Thank you for taking such good care of her.

Sarah, Paul, Megan and Grace (meet Indie on our travel blog)

Thanks so much for all of your help over the weeks. You were fantastic and I really appreciate the care you took.

Frances (Lily the cat flew from London to New York)

It seems such a long time since we left Louis in France - a tearful farewell to a lovely dog that had attached himself to us while on holiday.  Our friends thought we were simply crazy.  You see, while other people bring back trivial souvenirs - small momentos of their trip - we seem to collect dogs. Particularly ironic as here in Bath there is a huge RSPCA centre for unwanted animals. We had already brought back from Crete a delightful little bitch so the news that we were crazy enough to rescue another animal from abroad was met with incredulity. 

Obviously we had more money than sense but in fact we have little of either.  But he is such a sweetheart and the alternative was too awful to contemplate. 

It has been an exercise full of trauma - difficult trying to manage blood tests, etc from a distance. But we have to say a huge thank you to Animalcouriers for without their help we would not have discovered Robin and Caroline who have looked after Louis so well during the last few months.

Thank you to all of you who have helped us bring this lovely chap home.

Caroline and Steven (meet Louis on his journey)

Lovely piccies of my Min and the Blues Brothers Jake and Elwood. I was just thinking about them when I remembered I could track them on your site. Made me happy to see them on their big adventure to "sunny Petersfield". Happy Days indeed. Thank you Animalcouriers for taking good care of my boys. J, I hope you're back in good old blighty soon, fully recovered.


I would like to say a very big thank you to you all at Animalcouriers. Stella arrived just as we left her in England, full of beans. She has now settled in to her new bed and home. I can say she was really looked after by Animalcouriers. Thanks again for looking after her so well.

Nicky (see Stella on her journey)

J+M were fantastic and I was surprised by how fast Tuxa settled in and felt so comfy in the van. She’s in great hands and I’m now looking forward to welcome her at her new home for the next 2 and a half years.

Maria (see Tuxa on her journey with Animalcouriers)

I just want to thank you for all you have done and a big thank you for the pictures on your blog.

Colin and Maria (meet Carlos, Sophia and Alfie)

Just wanted to let you know that we got Jenga with no trouble and made it home safely. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance, I can’t imagine trying to do this all on my own.

Heather (read about Jenga's journey on our travel blog)

Just to say a very big thank you for arranging Millie’s flight over to Dubai. She arrived safely and in remarkable spirits considering her journey.

Jo (see Millie on the travel blog)

Hi, at the end of May this year you helped us to move our 2 dogs, JJ and Paco and our african grey parrot, Remy from Castleford to Moose Jaw in Canada. I can't speak highly enough of you L and your company - Animalcouriers for your patience, understanding and professionalism in dealing with our move. If you remember it was on-off, on-off but eventually, with your help we made it and are now living very happily in our new home in Moose Jaw.

Also I would like to thank your courier J who was also a great help on the day of our flight.

Ian & Bev

A very very very big thank you. We are so happy to have Simba & Kiara. The whole family is over the moon. X-mas came very early for us. We will for sure use your services again as well as recommend you to others. Thank you very much.

Please pass my warm appreciation greetings to the person who drove all the way to & fro collecting my babies.

Neema (meet Simba and Kiara on our travel blog)

A very BIG thank you to all concerned in the professional but caring manner in which you undertook the transportation of Thomas and Puss from Yorkshire to France, in particular S, who was so lovely in the way she spoke to all the cats on board and she was still smiling even though Thomas had "talked" (aka howled) at her most of the way. He was never amused by any car journey so this distance really made him cross. She would not stop for any refreshment - although we appreciated she still had considerable driving ahead of her that evening.

S may like to know that Thomas continued to protest to us for a couple of days, particularly at night, but now he is familiar with his new surroundings we only receive the occasional swear word.

If ever the occasion arises we will not hesitate to recommend Animalcouriers to all concerned - you have an excellent organisation and wonderful staff.

Gill & Kit (read about Puss and Thomas on our travel blog)

I want to thank you and your team for helping me move the kids to South Africa, as you know it was a really stressful process getting it all sorted. It was very hard for me to put them in their cages as I said goodbye. Knight, the oldest boy was not having any of that getting into the cage thing.

They were fine and healthy when they landed, I got them within 20 minutes of getting off the plane, so it was a quick re-union. It was 33 degrees the day they landed, so Africa really gave them a warm welcome. They are now settling in their new house just fine, my garden has been dug up 4 times and they enjoy catching the sunny rays.

Thanks again for all your help. If I ever do move again... hopefully never so far again....I will always keep you in mind.

Jacqui, Leon and kids (the 'kids' tavelled by air from the UK to Capetown)

Duke arrived at home around 10 pm last night in good spirits and we are all incredibly relieved and thankful that he's finally home.

I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for us. Getting a flight for Duke wasn't easy to start off with and then having to complete all the paperwork in such a tight time frame was a huge achievement!

Thanks to you everything went smoothly during Duke's long travels and he still likes his cage too :-).

The Landman family (Duke flew all the way to Panama)

Elvis is very settled now back with us in Australia. The whole experience was very hassel free and I would recommend this company to all!!!

Elvis seemed very happy when we got him from quarantine and it has been well worth it.

Jackie and Martin (read about Elvis on our travel blog)

Many thanks for this and for your overall caring and professional approach to our 'consignment'. Your expertise has given us confidence and has lessened the overall stresses of this exercise.

Marion and David
(the 'consignment' was two snub-nosed Pekinese dogs, Suki and Holly who flew to Australia)

The new arrival has settled in so so well, my other dog adores him and they both sleep together in her crate. Thank you for all your wonderful help. I really couldn't have done it without you both and Jed arrived without a care in the world so I know he was well catered for. You really do a fantastic job and I wouldn't hesitate to use you again or recommend you to anyone else looking to transport pets.

Becky (read Jed's story on the blog and see photos of him)

I just wanted to send you an email to say that I was incredibly impressed by the service I recieved from Animalcouriers. I wouldn't hesitate to use you again and have been recommending you to anyone who I think is planning to move pets. Holly, Rocky and Symi have been here for a week now and are settling in well, they didn't seem too bothered by the journey at all.

Thanks for all your help, you definitely made this part of the moving abroad process far easier.


I moved to the USA two years ago with my Bloodhound and two cats. You and your team helped me with the relocation and I received excellent, friendly service from you. In three weeks I will be returning to the UK with two dogs and four cats and you recommended Debbie Rogers at All Pet Travel. I just wanted to let you know that Debbie has been brilliant, she has explained the process clearly every step of the way, is always there to respond to my many questions and has taken the stress out of it for me.

I will most certainly be recommending Animalcouriers and All Pet Travel to anyone requiring pet travel in the UK and USA.

and Mallow the Bloodhound, Satine the Lab and Alex, Bantu, Caleb and Miss Merlyn the kitties!

When I first thought about bringing an English Mastiff puppy over from the UK to South Africa I was rather anxious about the logistics, the transit time and the stress of travel over such a distance. I seemed to spend as much time researching animal transporters as I did the breeders.

I found a lovely little mastiff from a wonderful breeder in Wales and, after communicating with many different animal transport companies, I found Animalcouriers. In all my dealings with them I found them professional, knowledgeable, prompt in all correspondence, and price competitive.

Animalcouriers booked the puppy onto the flight I specifically requested. They worked with the breeder to ensure that all documentation was in place and that the measurements for the travel crate were correct. They organised the travel crate and collected the puppy from the breeder in plenty of time to get him to the airport.

The puppy arrived remarkably vibrant and optimistic about starting his African adventure.

Many thanks to L and J for your professionalism and care.

Jodi (meet Teddy on our travel blog)

Mick has just called me from LAX to say that he has Digger & Holly and they seem lively and happy to see him. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you have done in looking after them both and getting them over to us safely! Our 2 children are so excited that they have rejoined the family. I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to everyone!

We will be in touch in 3 years time when we are coming home!!

Paula (meet Holly & Digger on our travel blog)

This is a note to say thank you so much for taking good care of Ruby and Coco. They have soon settled back into family life. They don't seem at all stressed out with the journey which is obviously down to you taking good care of them and giving them lots of love when you were not driving.

Both Ruby and Coco are eating well, (back to Winalot), and at present after their morning walk, eating their chewies. In their new home in Devon, we have found a brilliant walking place around fields and woods, which takes a good hours walk, which the love (picking up sticks and putting their heads in the grass sniffing).

Thank you for the Twitter updates, they really helped to keep track on where they were on this long journey.

I will 100% recommend Animalcouriers.

Ruby, Coco, and Sam (see Coco on the journey)

I would like to thank you for the amazing updates on my cats, it was great to know what was happening along the way.

Just to let you know, the cats arrived safely and in fantastic condition, I have to say I was impressed with their handling in the UK. I could see that the cats had good care and were so much less stressed than I have seen in previous experience in cat travels, so thank you so much.


Thanks for getting both my cats to France safe and sound. Everyone I have dealt with in your organisation has been extremely friendly, efficient, patient and helpful and you provided an excellent service from the beginning of the process to the end. This has been quite a stressful time for myself and my family and you all helped to make everything that much easier.

Marcia (meet Vito and Lily)

We cannot thank you enough for all the fab pictures and emails and blogs and tweets -- what a great weekend we had from a very nervous Friday until we saw Canico at Olof and Mary's wonderful home.

I cannot believe he has his own room with a real bed and Snoopy murals on the wall -- brilliant! Cannot wait until November when you go and collect him. I am now a self-confessed Animalcouriers travel blog addict!!

Jane and Ray (read all about Canico's rescue)

Celia and I would like to thank you for transporting our family of 15 dogs and three cats from North Cyprus to Chesterfield in the UK by road. The way in which the journey was carried out and your care and attention to our family on route was superb and your obvious love of animals shone through.

As you can imagine we were very apprehensive about the journey and our stress and worry levels were at an all time high. However your two or three emails each day along with pictures of our family plus a commentary of the journey made it seem as if we were there with you, well we were with you in thought. We constantly checked the map to see where you were and which route you were taking and of course the nearer you got to the Channel the lower our stress levels dropped.

Our family are now in kennels near Chesterfield after their epic journey so once again we thank you for your care, devotion and most of all for taking exemplary care of our family, it was a pleasure to meet you both.

Roger and Celia (see the Fowler troupe's journey on our travel blog)

Scat Cat and Tigger have settled in really well and we are very happy to have them with us again! Thank you SO much for helping us with their move and being very helpful all-round. I will make sure to recommend you to friends in future.

Trine (see Scat Cat and Tigger on our travel blog)

Gucci has arrived safely in Australia. I spoke to Spotswood and they said that she travelled well. Thank you so much for all your efforts. It is a traumatic experience to send a precious pet overseas. You have done everything possible to make the process a smooth one, even with the blood test fiasco. Thank M for looking after Gucci so well.

You have been so understanding. I would love to recommend Animalcouriers to any owner planning to relocate their pet overseas.


Cats arrived safely at my family's place in Canada :) I just want to thank you guys for all your help, it is very much appricated, and the cats say thank you too :)


Just to let you know Peanut has settled down after her adventures! She looked very healthy and must have really enjoyed being with Mary and Olof. Thanks for taking good care of her. She is very interested in exploring grass and carpets at the moment, also she is eating meat!!!!!

Thanks once again for getting her to Wales without a hitch! It is certainly a first class service you provide. We will certainly recommend you.

Mar, Kim n Peanut

We went down to see our 'team' in quarantine last Sunday and they're all in really good form and have fully recovered from their trip - the dogs playing ball etc. Robyn at Pethaven said that they all were in good shape when they arrived and other than some water spillage in their boxes were virtually clean.

We'd all like to thank you very much for your time, care and patience in the transporting of our 'family' to New Zealand and would recommend your company without reservation to anyone needing to move their pets.

Gerard, Donna and James

We both want to say how glad we are we found Animalcouriers and decided to use you to transport Bella from Newcastle to southern France. As Bella has had such a traumatic time recently, it was important to know she was in safe hands and with people who not only transport animals but, very importantly, understand and care about them.

Bella has settled in well with her brothers and into her new home and, despite her disability, is enjoying showing off how quickly she can run!

You can read about Bella and the other rescued GSP's on what happened next on

Pat and Ged (see Bella on our travel blog)

What a ball of fire. Millie is doing great. We are crazy about her, the kids are the only ones who can keep up with her. I crated her last night with a hot water bottle and she was happy to go to sleep. This morning at 5am I heard her chewing and playing with toys so I got up and fed her, she eats a lot for a puppy. I will take her for a drive today.

Once again thanks a million for looking after her, and give Amber a kiss from us for playing with her and being her chew toy. I will recommend Animalcouriers to everyone.

Karen (read Millie's story on the travel blog)

Thank you all for the excellent and very efficient and quick service that you provided to ensure my little hamster Patrick arrived safe and sound to his new home in Italy. I am very happy indeed with all the assistance and friendliness that we constantly received during the three days' journey. Patrick had top quality treatment even staying in a hotel. For those of you who may be thinking or debating how to send your beloved pet safely to another country, Animalcouriers is the perfect choice. Great work and a special thanks to the reliable driver who made sure Pat was warm and cosy during the trip!!

Suzanne, Livio and Patrick (Pat's story on the travel blog)

Your blog site is great! I will definitely recommend Animalcouriers to our friends with pets transiting to/from the US.

Thom (Casey flew from Denver to Oxfordshire)

If you have a bonus scheme, I would like to recommend Abi [Animalcouriers' agent in Spain]. She has been most helpful and a credit to your company.

Richard & Mary

What attracted me to Animalcouriers was the fact that they are a smaller outfit than usual and so every assignment they take on is dealt with on a personal basis. Everything was explained perfectly and plainly, I felt very confident and reassured.


I am recommending Animalcouriers to all who ask me for pet travel info. You were all so kind and helpful, despite all my problems (and there were many)!


Thanks for all your help with getting everything arranged — you are a godsend.


Thanks for all your help, the three kittens arrived safe and well. Thanks for all your hard work and hope to be in touch with another job next year.


Polly has reached her destination in Spain and is sunbathing as we speak! Thank you so much for all your help with the transport arrangements and for making the trip so easy to manage.


I can't thank you enough for the great job and care for Faust and Tara.


We are so grateful for everything you have done for us. It was such a huge weight off our shoulders to know that Becks was going to be looked after by you. Thanks a million!

Marie and Pedro

Just a quick note to thank you for your excellent service and for bringing Blue to us safely. You are lovely people who obviously enjoy your job and love animals. I would have no hesitation in recommending your wonderful service.

David, Brenda and Blue

Many thanks for dealing with Wilbur's journey etc — he arrived here in New Zealand pretty much on time and is fine.

Jayne and Martin

Hi thank you all for getting my two baby Royal Pythons to me, both well and settling in. Your help and service was second to none, thank you so much for the quick response as well.


I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your organising and help getting my dog Rhondda to New Zealand. I was so impressed by everything at the Heathrow end, everyone was so professional and kind.

Lisa and Rhondda

The ease, care, professionalism and personal touch with which they handled my pets and the smooth operation of getting them to South Africa was impressive.


Just to say how very pleased I was with the service Animalcouriers provided to take my three precious goat kids to Ripon and Dundee. I am sure I shall be ringing you again next year.


It's a daunting thing to entrust your beloved pets into the hands of someone else. Animalcouriers do it superbly because they are animal-lovers themselves. I couldn't have asked for a better company to not only airfreight my dogs but to lovingly look after them beforehand. It made the transition much easier for all of us.


We were so grateful — the dogs were obviously happy with you. I'm sure we will be needing you in the future!


Just wanted to say Thank You for treating my cat so well when you picked him up and delivered him to the airport. Everyone I dealt with on the phone or internet was not only helpful but friendly and caring too! I promise to reccomend you to anyone with a pet to ship.


Many thanks for your help and kindness to my Persian cats to make the journey bearable for them.


Winston arrived in great form and on time and in a palatial box. Thank you for arranging it all so well.


Bless you and thank you very much. If ever needed I will be back to you.


Cheers for your help getting my cat to Australia. I'll be recommending you.


Just wanted to say a big Thank You for looking after my cat Alfie.


Just to let you know that Ally arrived safely in Malaga. Everything went according to plan at the airport and we had no problems with documentation or any other hitches. Thank you for all your help.


Just a line to thank you for delivering Stella safely to Sweden. She has settled in well with my other dogs and her trip doesn't seem to have upset her. I would certainly be happy to use you again.


Tigger arrived at Toulouse safe and sound. Thank you for all your help over the last couple of months. I shall certainly recommend your company to anyone who asks.


I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for the safe arrival of Harvey in Spain. He obviously was a big hit with you all and maybe you will understand why I was so concerned about his travel arrangements — he is a huge softy, isn't he? He has settled in so well and I am sure part of that is down to you.


We are very pleased that the goats landed in Bamako. We would like to thank you very much for your hard work. Fortunately all the goats came OK to Mali and they are thriving now. We take you for a reliable partner and think highly of your company. Thanks a lot once more.


We'd been dreading the journey with the cats in the car after packing up our London house and arriving in France before our furniture did. It was a stressful enough time without worrying about the impact our decision would have on the cats. As soon as we heard about Animalcouriers and talked to them, our decision was made. It took the stress out of the move for both us and the cats!


I just wanted to thank you all for your help with transporting Mia to the USA for us. You helped us out hugely with this and provided such an excellent service.


Thank you for your excellent service. The cats arrived safely in Detroit.
