Couriers Glenn and Ainslie travelled with pet passengers from the UK to Italy and Greece, with a brief stop-off in France. A few days later Courier Mike set off for Naples to collect pets bound for the UK and Belgium.
Ernie and Barney, two dogs from London to France
Adorable Pugs Ernie and Barney, who belong to Ramzi, were our first delivery, travelling with us from London to Grasse in France.
Tractor, a cat from the UK to Bologna
Gorgeous tabby cat Tractor (what a great name!) started his journey with us in Surrey. We took him to Bologna for a reunion with owner Luchian.
Akasha and Merlin, 2 dogs from Luton to Greece
A simply stunning pair of Siberian Huskies, Akasha and Merlin belong to Iordanis. Natalia brought the dogs to us in Surrey and they travelled with us to Thessaloniki in Greece.
Allegro, a dog from London to Greece
Leggy Lurcher Allegro belongs to Gabriella. On returning to Greece after 20 years in the UK, she entrusted Allegro’s transport to Animalcouriers.
Dixie, a cat from London to Athens
Vasiliki’s cat Dixie looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth, but she’s quite a character. As soon as her food arrives, she’s ready to tuck in — but only after a quick hiss at our couriers of course!
Pumpkin, a cat from Cornwall to Crete
Pumpkin belongs to Ann, who’s relocated from Cornwall to the island of Crete. Pumpkin turned out to be a super friendly puss who loves being stroked.
Bessie and Bertie, a dog and a cat from Greece to Kent
Once all our passengers from the UK were safely delivered to their families, it was time to meet the crew from Greece. First up: splendid Collie Bessie and her feline chum Bertie who belong to Jane. We collected them from Chris’s Animal Hotel in Athens for their journey to Deal in Kent.
Apollo and Ziggy, two dogs from Greece to London
Lovely Labrador Apollo and Havanese Ziggy belong to Iman. They too were waiting for us at Chris’s Animal Hotel, ready to travel with us to London.
Five rescue dogs from Greece to the UK
Five rescue dogs — Lucy, Triston, Regina, Dahlia and Milou — travelled with us for Starlight Barking to their new homes in the UK.
Pets travelling from the Lago Patria Nato base
While couriers Glenn and Ainslie made their way back from Greece, courier Mike headed to Naples. Personnel from the Lago Patria Nato base went into lockdown much earlier than the rest of Italy, and only recently were allowed to travel to new postings. We were on hand to collect the pets moving with them.
