While couriers J and M accompanied six dogs on their flights from Greece, couriers Marc and Matthew made the road trip from Greece with UK-bound cats and dogs. They stopped off in Italy to collect their final passengers.

Baby, Little Lady, Abigail and Cleo

The four gorgeous rescue hounds were sponsored by the Starlight Barking Trust. We delivered them to the Manchester Dog Café for assessment, followed by rehoming.

The café is doing great work with its rehoming programme. It provides a safely loop for adopters, and promises always to take dogs back, if necessary, and continue working with them.

Cane Corso puppies

On the way through Italy we stopped off in a very chilly Bari to collect more Cane Corso dogs — a pair of pups who don’t yet have names. They belong to Andrew, who hurried off after dropping them, to make sure he got to the UK in time to meet them in Surrey.
