Animalcouriers collected King Charles Spaniel Amy from kennels in Cavalaire sur Mer, where she’s been waiting to be collected for her journey home. This cute little girl is travelling with us to West Sussex where she’ll be reunited with her owners. We arrived to find Amy had been washed and shampooed β€” she looked and smelled wonderful.

At six and a half months old, Australian Shepherd puppy Jacky is a lanky young thing. Now ready to leave her breeder and venture out into the wide world, she’s making the journey with us from France to the UK. Her new family in Henley-on-Thames is very much looking forward to welcoming this bouncy youngster.

Our final UK-bound passenger is Gwen from the Mediterranean city of Montpellier. One of most imposing cats we’ve ever met, she’s travelling with us to the UK where she’ll be reunited with her owner.
