Animalcouriers recently organised for pets to fly to Kuwait, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.
Bridget the Midget to Kuwait
On a wet morning in London, Animalcouriers met tiny Yorkshire Terrier Bridget and her owner Jody off the train from north-east England. We arranged for Bridget’s Defra export certificate to be completed, then her paperwork was whisked into London to be legalised by the Kuwaiti Embassy.
Jody got in touch to say:
“Legislation changes / documentation requirements etc, an absolute nightmare of paperwork to be sorted. I left all of this to the Animalcouriers team. No problems at all, and Bridget the Midget arrived safe and sound. Nicest thing for me, as Bridget is only a puppy, were the ongoing updates, pictures and reassurance that all was in hand. She’s all settled in now and adapting to the heat. Thank you all for getting her here safely.”
Henry and Orlando to Hong Kong
Even smaller than Bridget, these two Hermanii tortoises flew to Hong Kong to join their family. Hermanii tortoises are a CITES-protected species, so these two pets were accompanied by quite a pile of paperwork. They had to have CITES export certificates issued in the UK, plus a special permit from the Hong Kong government. They also had to be tested for salmonella.
Winnie, Boomer and Laddy to New Zealand
These three dogs travelled to Auckland to rejoin their respective families.
Diva to Australia
Darling Diva, a Tibetan Mastiff, was born in Russia, then moved to the UK for a while in order to comply with Australia’s strict entry requirements. She joined Bono, whose travel we arranged three years ago.
I love the name Bridget the Midget :o) Butt I feel a little sorry for Diva… after having winter she went to a land what has winter soon :o) Butt with Bone she will have a great time anyway :o)
Bridget’s name tickled us pink! Not the best arrangement for Diva but she’s got a great new playmate.
I love the look on Laddy’s face.
What do you think he was thinking? Where’s the treat? 😉
MOL..we were thinking the same for the name as Phenny did…Bridget the Midget, she’s very cute, so are all the other cuties and the two tortoises…and tootsies of twofeet on screen…just like Granny when she makes my pictures… MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a wonderful Day to all of you 🙂 <3
Bridget sure lives down to her name 😀
Oh, the trials of traveling but your passengers seem to be taking it in stride.
Animals fly such long distances and don’t bat an eye.
Traveling/moving with pets simply would be a nightmare if not for you all at Animal Couriers. You know the rules/what paperwork is required and I know the pets are WAY more comfy with the travel arrangements you do than they would otherwise be. Bravo for AC!
That’s so sweet of you Pam! We do have a member of the team who knows pet air travel inside out — we’re so pleased to have her on board 😀
A good-looking passenger list you have there!!
Nothing but the best-looking lot for us!
Wow, such a motley pack of travelers! I am continually amazed at your services…
P.S. I was also interested in your election this past Sunday. Oh, my.
We have all sorts! Yup, that election had rather a good result. Here’s to seeing if he can get enough MPs to form a strong government…
Fine photos of your passengers.
Be try to the best by them.
What a gorgeous group. Going to do some research on the tortoise, they have always facinated me 🙂 you all are the best!
We do end up transporting many tortoises — they are obviously easy passengers but there are so many types!
A pretty lot of pets going to some out of the way places.
Yes, they do fly everywhere.
Some real cuties going to some exotic places this time!
More exotic than most of us manage!
They are all beautiful passengers! I love those turtles!
And they have a rather splendid enclosure.
