Melanie has moved from the seaside resort of Hemsby, near Great Yarmouth, on England’s east coast, to Grays in Essex. In addition to all the usual headaches that come with relocating, Melanie had a veritable menagerie to take with her! Five dogs, nine cats, and numerous fish.

Melanie called on Animalcouriers to transport all her pets bar one dog that travelled with her and her family. Despite the upheaval of their home and routine, every pet was calm and well behaved. Melanie, her brother Eddie, and her daughter Shelley can take a lot of the credit for that, as they had everything beautifully organised.
