Ginger cat Garlic has a new home in Romania

Animalcouriers recently arranged for ginger cat Garlic to fly to Bucharest in Romania, where his owner J has relocated. We think Garlic is a very interesting name for a cat, but then J is a chef! J dropped us a line to let us know how Garlic is settling in: 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. So handsome! [...]

Purdey and Cookie are back with Lynn and Bob

Purdey and Cookie are two of the dogs from North Cyprus who accompanied us on our first abortive attempt to enter Turkey. Because of timing issues, they couldn't join our second successful attempt. Instead they flew back to the UK and have been home boarding with Animalcouriers' Lynn while their new home was being prepared. When Lynn and Bob arrived to collect their dogs, they were full of stories about all the hassles that so often go with moving house: no water, no phone signal and so on. Even so, they're glad to be back in the UK and of [...]
