Alice, a dog from London to Sweden

Charming Border Terrier Alice is a returning Animalcouriers client. She travelled with us from the UK to stay with her grandparents just south of Stockholm, where she’s doubtless looking forward to long walks and lots of treats.

Dear Alice homeboarded with us for a little while, and made herself very comfortable!

Pipkin and Merry, two cats from Denmark to London, flying to Australia

We collected this absolutely stunning pair of Orientals from a cattery near Aarhus. Owner Ashley has gone on ahead to Australia, and her cats have had to wait out the regulation period before they can fly out to join her. We transported them to London where they boarded a Qantas flight to their final destination.

Sweet and sociable, Pipkin and Merry are a very bonded pair

We stopped for the night at a hotel in Schwerin, by the side of the lake. In the hotel grounds we came upon a herd of brightly painted rhinos.

Millie, a dog from Cape Verde via Cologne to the UK

On our way through Germany we stopped in Cologne to collect sweet little Millie, who’d flown in from Cape Verde. When Josephine was on holiday there last year, she volunteered to walk dogs from the local shelter. She completely fell for Millie and decided to adopt her.

Once all of Millie’s paperwork and blood tests were finalised, Josephine travelled back to Cape Verde to collect her. She and Millie flew into Cologne, where we met them to take Millie the rest of the way to her new home with Josephine in Wales.
