Honi makes a bee-line for Ecuador

Honi makes a bee-line for Ecuador

Animalcouriers received a phone call from Carla in Ecuador a few days ago. She’d had to fly out of the UK without her beloved dog Honi, because of problems with Honi’s travel box.

Many phone calls and emails followed while Carla tried to sort out how to get Honi into Ecuador as a cargo booking. KLM offered the best route via Amsterdam, but Carla was overwhelmed by the maze of Ecuadorean bureaucracy. In the end, she realised she would have to return to the UK and accompany Honi on her flight to Ecuador.

Animalcouriers supported Carla by arranging the legalisation of Honi’s export certificate and her secondary vet visit, and sorting out a replacement travel box. We battled through rain and floods to collect Honi from her foster carers in Gloucester, and delivered her to London’s Heathrow airport where she was reuinited with Carla in good time for their 4.00am check-in for the flight to Amsterdam.

      Poor Carla had a horrid time with all the red tape – she must be so relieved to have the darling Honi back with her.

      There was a lot of happiness all round when Honi’s journey was finally sorted and they could both head home!

    I’d say that’s going more than the extra mile… I’d do it for Sissy though.

    What an ordeal! Regulations can be so frustrating!

      It was for poor Carla. They’re deeply frustrating as they vary from country to country.

    Been watching the weather… battling through rain and floods in the middle of the night is no small thing. Honi is a lucky dog to have AC on her side. –Curt

      We couldn’t have a little thing like floods and rain stop Honi travelling this time 😉

We Love you! Honi is now very happy being reunited with her sister Poppy and I, we all missed eachother so much. Thanks again for everything.

      Hi Carla! It was our pleasure and relief that you were able to get Honi home to Poppy. Bureaucracy be damned 😀 Good luck to you all.

    Thank you for helping these two work it out and re-uniting them. I would go to the end of the earth and back again too if it meant getting my dog home. Wonderful happy ending 😀

    how were all the fees paid? can you pay with the credit card?

      Hi Dianny – yes, credit cards can be used for all payments with these more complex arrangements.

We'd love to hear from you
