Animalcouriers recently arranged for gorgeous Millie from Manchester to fly to Calgary in Canada. Her owner Jane left Millie in the care of her mum while she went on ahead to organise the family’s new home. It took longer to find pet-friendly accommodation than Jane had expected, but finally she found the perfect pad, and Millie was soon on her way. Jane sent a photo of Millie at her new home, saying:

“I’m pleased to tell you that Millie arrived safe and well in Calgary. It was a lovely family reunion at the airport! Thank you so much for everything you have done to get her to Canada smoothly. It feels like home now she’s here!”

We also heard from the owners of Cooper, the gentle giant of a Rottie who started his journey with us in Italy when we collected him from the Nato Air Base at Aviano. Cooper then flew from London Heathrow to Ohio. His dad Scotty sent us an update and some photos:

“Cooper made it home safe and sound and very happy. He is hanging out with our family in Ohio until we pick him up in a few weeks. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We couldn’t be more happy with how he was cared for on his journey. From the pictures you posted it looked like he was having a blast and made some new friends.”

Meanwhile cheeky tabby cat Pickles, who travelled with us from Gibraltar in January, flew from the UK to Sydney, Australia, ready to start her new life in Perth with her owner Martin. Animalcouriers recently opened an account with newly established vet practice Vet on the Hill in Caterham in Surrey. It fell to vet Ian to give Pickles her pre-flight check and worming treatment, and wade through the pile of paperwork required by AQIS, the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service.
