Animalcouriers arranged for handsome 13-year-old hound Rigsby to fly to Northern Cyprus. He took off from Manchester in the snow, and arrived in wonderful Cypriot sunshine. His owners report that he was beside himself with joy on being reunited with them — “his whole body wagged and wagged!” said Suzanna, adding:

“Thank you again for helping us bring Rigsby over to Cyprus for his retirement. You can see from the photos how much he is enjoying his new life.”

We also organised for gorgeous young lop-eared rabbit JR to fly from the UK to Los Angeles. Just 12 weeks old, he’s already the size of a standard adult lop! That’s because he’s no ordinary baby: he’s the son of Darius, the world’s largest rabbit.

JR has gone to live with Angela, who runs The Bunny Hutch, an animal welfare and educational charity. Last year we arranged a flight for Hutch, another of Darius’s offspring, but very sadly he died just after Christmas from viral meningitis. Angela was devastated by the loss, so we hope JR will bring some comfort.
