Tilly Dear little Yorkie Tilly, who belongs to Charlotte, is a regular Animalcouriers client. She travelled with us from Surrey to her summer holiday home in the lovely area of St Prex in Switzerland.

Although initially nervous about putting her paw down, she showed she was recovering well as she [...]

Cats, geckos, dogs and a budgie get on board

Animalcouriers set off from the UK with cats, geckos, dogs and a budgie on board, on our way to Scandinavia by way of the Netherlands. Jimmy Budgerigar Jimmy belongs to Lauren, who's relocated from Bedfordshire to the Dutch capital, Amsterdam. We collected Jimmy from Lauren's lovely mum Janet, who's been budgie sitting while Lauren completed her move. Jimmy had a short stay with courier J, who found him to be the most cheerful companion. She could quite understand why Janet found it hard to see Jimmy leave! Janet with the very acrobatic Jimmy After a traffic-laden journey [...]
