Towards the end of last year, Animalcouriers organised transport for a Setter puppy from the UK to Guernsey. We also collected five Siberian kittens from Spain, heading to their new owners in the UK; and took two Savannah kittens from England to Italy.

Setter puppy from the UK to Guernsey

This delightful puppy was a surprise gift for Geoff from his partner Dani and a new addition to their family of Setters and Chihuahuas.

In the winter, there are limited transport options from the UK to the Channel Islands, so we organised for the puppy to fly from the UK to Guernsey airport.

Apart from the 30-minute flight (during which the puppy seems to have slept soundly, despite a windy landing), it was a very hands-on experience.

5 kittens from Spain to the UK

In Girona in northern Spain we collected five glorious Siberian kittens: Flower, Giselle, Greta, Fairy and Friday. We transported them to the UK in time for Christmas, where their excited new owners were waiting for them.

Alba and Goldie, 2 kittens from England to Italy

We collected striking Savannah kittens Alba and Goldie from Stephen in Wigan for their journey to Italy. We arranged their Export Health Certificates (EHCs) and their customs clearances at Calais, then drove them to Vicenza in Italy where Candice was waiting to welcome them.

Breeder Stephen wrote to say:

“I just want to say a massive thank you to you all for such superb professionalism and service in getting our kittens to their new home in Italy. I will admit I was a bit naive as to how complicated some of it would be, so when I admitted defeat and the export team took over the paperwork it all went so smoothly. Honestly, I am more than impressed. Thank you again and I won’t think twice about either recommending you to others or if needed using you again.”
