Travelling to France, Spain and Portugal with cats, dogs and a parrot on board

Animalcouriers have two trips on the go at the moment: while couriers S and G leave the UK and head south through France and on to Spain and Portugal, couriers M and J are on their way to Sweden via Switzerland, Italy and northern France. Meet the pets travelling south with couriers S and G. Leaving Le Havre yesterday morning Spirit and Flight We collected Colleen's two stunning cats from Cambridgeshire earlier this week, and they've been homeboarding with us until it was time to head to France. Spirit is a seal-point Siamese and flight is a chocolate [...]

Couriers converge in Italy, and more passengers hop on board as we head towards the UK

Couriers J and G collected pets in the Rome area and the port of Ancona, while couriers M and S docked at Brindisi, following their crossing from Greece. Couriers J and G stayed at a delightful hotel less than an hour from Rome called I Due Laghi. It's a combined farm and equestrian centre that also produces delicious organic milk and cheese. A peaceful interlude for us before tackling the roads around Rome! Wonderful green and leafy gardens Some parts of the garden are laid out in a formal style Chiara We met up with very pretty cat [...]

Meet the cats and dogs travelling from Greece

While couriers J and G headed to France and Italy, courier M made his way to Greece, where he was joined by courier S.

Gibbs will have a short stay with Animalcouriers before joining his owners at Southampton, where they'll board the Queen Mary for a trip to New York. Their ultimate destination is Baltimore. They're taking the [...]

Collections and reunions in the UK, before we set off for France and Italy

Here at Animalcouriers we have two trips on the go: this one carrying passengers to France and Italy, and the other one dedicated to pets from Greece (we'll update you on that trip shortly). But before setting off for France, we travelled as far as Scotland to collect and deliver pets. Winnie We collected fluffy Pomeranian Winnie in London, who's relocating to New Zealand. She travelled with us to Sussex, where she'll have a short stay in kennels until she flies to Auckland in August. Her owner has flown on ahead to get everything ready and is already excitedly planning [...]

Meet Gia and Olli, Lucy and Katia, Poe and Obi — and a rabbit called Stitch

Animalcouriers recently drove a pair of Rhodesian Ridgebacks from Sweden to France; a pair of cats from Germany to the UK, and collected a rabbit at Schiphol airport who'd flown in from Dubai. Guanajuato (Gia) and Olwyna (Olli) Mother and daughter Rhodesian Ridgebacks Gia and Olli travelled with us from their winter home near Stockholm in Sweden, to their summer residence near Nice in the south of France. It's a longish drive, but mum Gia is a little too anxious to fly, so a comfortable road trip at a pace the dogs can both enjoy is much more relaxing all [...]
