While couriers J, M and S have been collecting and delivering pets around Europe, courier L has been arranging flights and paperwork for other pets leaving the UK and going further afield, assisted by courier R doing the airport runs.

Gorgeous one-year-old Tibetan Mastiff Bono flew to Melbourne in Australia with Qantas. During the preparations for his flight, he lodged with Jenny, who was understandably sad when it was time to say goodbye. However, his new owner Charmaine, who runs the Temzin Tibetan Masiff Kennels, has been counting down the days until his arrival. The wait is almost over, as Bono has to finish his 10 days at Spotswood Quarantine Kennels before he can meet his new family.

Also flying to Australia were Cassie, Nya and their three feline companions. Animalcouriers originally helped to move Golden Retriever Cassie and the cats to Sydney about three years ago. When the family had to come back to the UK for 18 months, they couldn’t bear to leave their pets behind, so Cassie and the cats came too. On the return trip to Sydney, they were joined by Siberian Husky Nya. Owner Sandra wrote to say:

“The animals are settling in well. It is very warm here and both dogs have shed their coats so we have had hair everywhere!! The cats are out and about in the garden, quite puzzled by large cockatoos flying about and screeching! We have a possum family in the garden along with large lizards which the dogs are fascinated by. Thank you for all your help and care in getting the animals here β€” we definitely couldn’t have done it without your guidance and attention to detail.”

Meanwhile five-month-old Newfoundland puppy Capability flew to Bermuda. Animalcouriers arranged his paperwork and he stayed overnight with courier R who drove him to London Gatwick to check in for his British Airways flight.
