on the road with Animalcouriers

Dean avoids a scam with help from Animalcouriers

When Dean contacted us for a transport quote to Gloucester for two puppies he’d been offered from Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands, we warned him it might be a scam.

Why did we think that? Because Kirkwall is given as the location in a lot of puppy scams we hear about.

Having taken what we had to say on board, Dean got back in touch to say:

“Thank you for your responses, they helped greatly as did reading your scam warning page. After which it felt like it was a scam. So we decided to carry on looking for a puppy elsewhere and consequently have bought one. So it all worked out well. Thank you again, as we feel you stopped us from making a major mistake.”

    Hi. I have not long ago re homed my dog from a place not far from me In essex. There was a very popular page on facebook that rehomed dogs and went out of there way to rehome our dog tyson. We had to give up our dog due to the fact we was not a loud pets In our new home that we was moving to. We was moving to a bigger place because my gf was expecting. This charity took our dog to a palce in essex but then he was rehomed again 2 months later in orkney Island which to me seems a bit far for a rehoming. We asked the people who adopted tyson from us before how he was getting on and told us nothing. Then he was rehomed to these people In orkney island that would of had to go through the chariry to get him

We'd love to hear from you
