Pets relocating around Europe tend to travel by road (and sea) with Animalcouriers; for those travelling further afield, we can arrange air freight and help with import and export paperwork.
Recent Asian destinations for some of our passengers include Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. Handsome Labradoodle Thumper, his sidekick Vos, a Dachshund, and feline chums Bus and Biscuit flew to Singapore with BA. This family of four stayed at Haytor Kennels in Surrey while everything was prepared for their move. Vet on the Hill in Caterham took care of the export paperwork, and we worked with Mitchville, who organised the Singaporean import permits and delivered the pets to their new home once clearances had been completed at Changi Airport.
We arranged for slinky black cat Bruno to fly to Bangkok with Thai Air, then Boonma organised Bruno’s transfer to Phuket. With this trip, Bruno effectively returns to his homeland — he was found as a kitten in his owner’s Phuket garden, then moved to Hong Kong, after which he spent a few months in Brighton. Bruno has now put his suitcase into storage as the plans are for Phuket to be his permanent residence.
Rabbit Meow swapped Wales for Hong Kong. Meow turned out to be something of a conundrum. Despite the name, Meow is indeed a rabbit, not a cat. What’s more, while at the vet in Cardiff having the export paperwork completed, it was discovered that Meow wasn’t a buck, but a doe!
Our travellers to the Caribbean included Sage a very gentle, vocal Beagle puppy who joined her new family in Bermuda. Sage homeboarded with Animalcouriers while her export and import paperwork was prepared.
We also arranged for Candy, a Giant Schnauzer puppy (and kennel mate of Max, who flew to Bahrain earlier this year), to fly to Grand Cayman to join her new family. They told us:
“The little bundle of fur arrived safely after her 13-hour journey to Grand Cayman. She is lovely and I am grateful to all of you who have made this happen. It certainly has been a journey but with your assistance and, dare I say it, your patience, we managed to pull off a transaction that connected Morecambe with sunny Grand Cayman! Now who would have thought that?”
A little closer to home, we arranged for two dogs, Mit and Dylan, to fly to North Cyprus.
Antipodean adventurers were Abby, a Munsterlander, who travelled to Wellington; Milly who headed to Perth; and Richard, a wire hair Fox Terrier who flew to Sydney to join breeder Christophe. Richard and Milly were among the last pets to stay at Eastern Creek Quarantine Kennels, which has now closed. From now on, cats and dogs travelling to Australia will stay at the new quarantine facility at Mickleham just north of Melbourne.
Heading west were Willow, a very sweet King Charles Cavalier puppy who went to Boston; Nellie who flew to Newark with United; firm friends Tin and Sabina who headed to Buenos Aires; and Ginger who took off to Toronto.
Conrad, who works tirelessly for the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens, linked up with Dianne of Tails from Greece Rescue and found homes for Ginger and her sister Lilly in Ontario, Canada. Lilly was still in Athens, while Conrad was caring for Ginger in the UK. Ginger flew from London to Amsterdam, where she boarded the same KLM flight to Toronto as Lilly, who flew in from Athens. In Toronto they were met by Dianne. Fittingly, these two sisters have new homes with two sisters!
Two Lolas headed east. In 2011 we helped Lola senior move from Abu Dhabi to the UK. When it was time to move back to Abu Dhabi, Lola’s family asked Animalcouriers and the UAE-based American Veterinary Clinic to take care of the paperwork and travel arrangements again.
Lola junior, a cuddly Cockerpoo pup, flew with Emirates to Dubai to meet her new family. She homeboarded with Animalcouriers while her travel documents were prepared.
Nice variety of pets this round.
All gorgeous and very varied.
I thank you from the bottom of my furry heart for all the love, care and attention you give to getting your charges from point A to point B…you all do a fantastic job…so I say, “well done” 🙂
Thanks – you are very kind!
Everyone gorgeous and they are all lucky you offer this service and do such fine job.
We’ve got a great group of partners for these types of jobs – makes life a lot easier.
Oh I would like to meet all your passengers… they are wonderful! and Dylan looks a little like me… wish Cyprus would be closer to my area… well maybe with the next continental drifting :o)
Dylan looks a lot like you – wonder if he has as much fun at his crib? 😉
It’s so good to see them feeling happy. I only wonder if Meow ate all her treats during the flight 😀 Happy Pawkisses 🙂 <3
Meow looks like her larder was very well stocked before she took off!
I love the name Meow for a rabbit – perhaps I should suggest some similar names for the Little Kitty to my husband, so the cat actually gets a name before Christmas!
Oh, you must choose a name before Christmas! Why not have a quiz?
I think Sabina looked quite happy in her bag. I am reminded as a youth when our Italian neighbor persuaded my father that the cat could be fixed with a gunny sack, pocket knife, rope and tinsnips. Didn’t work. The cat never again liked bags. –Curt
Not really surprised – did he like your father much? 😉
He didn’t like anyone very much. 🙂 Can’t say I blamed him. –Curt
Little Lola definitely stole my heart. I bet she’d fit right in with our Sissy!
They’d look so very lovely together!
Such well traveled pets.You do a fantastic job with them.
xxx Huge Hugs xxx
Do do travel thousands of miles!
some happy passengers.
All very happy to be home!
My daughter has a cat in Egypt, he’s the love of her life.Hes microchipped and had the rabies vaccine .She would like to know if you can help her to bring him here to London UK,or if you know who can help her as she can’t seem to find anyone there to help her.
Hi Florence, it should be possible for your daughter to take her cat with her as baggage allowance on her checked ticket to Paris / Brussels / Amsterdam. We could pick the cat and your daughter up from any of these airports and bring them back to the UK or a family member could meet them both and bring them back. She’ll need all the right paperwork for entry to the EU. Drop us an email to email@example.com if you want more info.
All the best, Animalcouriers
