Some of the pets we transport by road fly in from abroad. Other pets start their journey in the UK and fly out to destinations like the Cayman Islands and Singapore. In some cases, we offer homeboarding for outbound pets — especially puppies and kittens like Stella, Walnut and Whisper (below), for whom the socialising nature of a home environment is often preferable to a kennels or cattery.
Major, a dog from the Cayman Islands to Scotland via Paris
Bonnie’s beloved dog Major couldn’t fly direct from the Cayman Islands to the UK because the Animal Reception Centre (ARC) at Heathrow Airport was fully booked. So Bonnie arranged for Major to fly into Paris Charles de Gaulle airport instead, where we collected him for his onward journey by road to Scotland.
2 dogs and 2 cats from Hong Kong to the UK via Frankfurt
Dogs Prince and Barley, along with cats Tullah and Rocco, flew into Frankfurt airport from Hong Kong. Courier Trevor was on hand to scoop them all up for their journey to the London area and a reunion with owner Jessica.
Rashka, a dog from the UK to Sweden
Gorgeous Black Labrador Rashka, whose journey started in Oxford, stayed with courier Helen for a couple of nights while she waited to join courier Paul’s road trip to Scandinavia. Helen said she was a joy to have around.
Stella, a puppy from the UK to the Cayman Islands
Having left her breeder in January, cute puppy Stella went to stay with foster parents. They organised all her vaccinations and paperwork ready for her to fly to her new owner in the Cayman Islands. When her owner had unexpected surgery, Stella’s flight had to be delayed to allow her owner time to recover. So Stella spent the extra time homeboarding with courier Helen.
A little cautious at first, Stella soon warmed up and found she simply loved being with everyone.
Walnut and Whisper, 2 kittens from the UK to Singapore
The breeder of super-sweet Ragdoll kittens Walnut and Whisper is a returning Animalcouriers client. She asked us to help send the kittens to their new families in Singapore.
Walnut and Whisper stayed with courier Helen ahead of their flight and were, she reports, lots of fun to have around.
