When Alison and Victor relocated to the Dutch city of The Hague from the very top of Scotland, near Thurso, they asked Animalcouriers to help move Max and Luka, their two German Short-haired Pointers. We took the dogs to kennels initially, where they stayed for a few days until the family arrived in The Hague, at which point we delivered Max and Luka to a huge welcome.
Not all airlines will transport pets and, even when they do, it can be quite an expensive business, what with travel boxes, cargo charges and so on. As a result, we’re getting more and more enquiries from pet-owners in Europe for bespoke trips, that fit precisely with their own travel plans.
Little Molly travelled with us in this way from Madrid to Scotland. Owner Tom wrote to say:
“Molly has settled in very well. She has had lots of walks and is happy to be back with her original pack. I want to thank you and all the team for the fantastic service you provided. From the first moment I spoke to you on the phone I felt reassured and, at such a stressful time for me, you put me at ease and made me realise that bringing Molly back was not an insurmountable task. Everyone in the office was incredibly helpful and couriers Rickie and Dave were so nice — it’s clear Molly had got on really with them.”
Barney, Rowan and Tish, three yellow Labs, travelled with us from Hexham in Northumberland to their new retirement home in the Limoges area of France.
Gorgeous cat Luka travelled with us last month from the south of France, and his owner Blaithin has sent us news about how he’s getting on:
“I want to thank you once again for looking after my little darling and for your constant reassurance on how he was doing. Luka hid for two weeks when we arrived but we just left him and loved him everyday, fed and watered him also. He was drinking but eating little. Now he is back to normal and is going out by himself and loving the garden as it is very large. He will use the trees as a scratching post and loves to climb them. Already he is sniffing out a nest of mice in the garden. He has found out that English mice run faster than French mice, hee hee!”
And finally, news and stunning photos of pocket-sized Staffie Poppy, who travelled from France to Portugal with us last month. Carol wrote to say:
“Thank you and your team so much for taking Poppy, she is with her dad and very happy.”
