A number of our couriers have been on the road recently, transporting delightful passengers travelling throughout Europe.

Zelda and Tyrion

English Bulldogs Zelda and Tyrion belong to James and Rachel, an American couple who’ve been on a US Army posting in the UK. A new posting to Germany means a relocation to Frankfurt. With a new baby to look after, James and Rachel asked Animalcouriers to take care of transporting their delightful canine duo from Oxfordshire to their new home.

At the P&O check-in, the computer-generated ticket didn't show pets, so an artistic member of staff improvised!

Mollie

Staffie cross Mollie went missing in southern Italy. Despite extensive searching, there was no trace of her, and owner Liz sadly accepted that Mollie was gone forever. Fast forward three years and Mollie has been found — identified by her microchip.

Liz, now living in Southampton, contacted us for help. We advised her to put Mollie into Happy Paws Kennels near Bari, where courier Paul collected her and drove her to the UK for a long-overdue reunion with Liz.

Bionda

Charming Yoda, a French Bulldog, needed to travel from the Netherlands to Lisbon, but owner Bruna was struggling to find transport for him. Fortunately, Animalcouriers could meet Yoda in Calais and complete the journey to Lisbon.

Emilio

Another splendid Siamese — meet Emilio. Very sadly, his owner passed away recently. So family members Linda and Rachel worked hard to relocate Emilio from Lisbon to his new home in Harrogate. As Emilio’s passport wasn’t in date, courier Glenn delivered him to a cattery in Calais for a short stay before he could enter the UK.

Bon appetit, Emilio!
