With our passengers all aboard, the Animalcouriers trip through southern Europe is now underway. French Bulldog pup Honey joined us from Yorkshire. We had the pleasure of delivering her to her excited new family in Geneva, Switzerland.

Delightful Daschund Bella also hails from Yorkshire — she’s off to the sunnier climes of Monaco for her summer break. This affectionate little girl loves cuddles and is very good company.

Regular travellers Jules and Jim joined us in south London. This handsome pair of tuxedo cats are also off on their summer holidays, to the Perpignan area of France. And finally, feline duo Lucca and Florence are making the journey with us from Somerset to northern Italy.
