The extension of the UK lockdown means we’re receiving quite a number of requests to collect puppies and kittens from their breeders and deliver them to their new owners.
Although we feel that, normally, it’s best for the new owner to collect their pet, we understand that the current circumstances make that difficult. We’ve taken advice from Defra, the RSPCA and the Kennel Club, all of whom say what really matters is that young puppies and kittens go to their new homes once they’re ready, so that they can be properly socialised into their new families. All three organisations have approved Animalcouriers to undertake these trips.
So we’re very pleased to help with this special type of transport wherever we can, while prioritising the health and safety of our couriers. We aim to complete these trips in one day, but longer trips can be discussed. We’re doing our best to meet deadlines but are asking our clients to be flexible to help us work as efficiently as possible.
Here you can meet a few more of the gorgeous puppies we’ve recently transported.
