Yesterday was Clean Monday — the first day of Lent — and a holiday in Greece. Traditionally people fly kites and eat simple food on the beach. Unfortunately, it was absolutely pouring with rain, so there wasn't much of either activity going on. Animalcouriers arrived early at the Greek port of Igoumenitsa following our crossing from Italy. We drove off towards Piraeus port, calling in at Lefkas en route to collect Jennifer's cat Matilda. Then we had an overnight crossing to Crete, where we reunited Cali, Scali and Miski with Sheila. Courier M carried Miski and Scali into the house [...]

Animalcouriers reached the Italian port of Ancona after a day of traffic jams around the ski slopes, followed by snow, rain, hail, thunder and lightning as we drove across northern Italy!

Miski, Cali and Scali have spent the winter on Jersey with Jill and Sheila. Now it's time for everyone to go home to Crete, where Jill and Sheila do great work looking after stray cats, making sure they get health checks and getting them neutered. It will be quite a long journey by road for these three cats but, following a less than ideal experience of getting them to Jersey by air, Jill and Sheila are keen to ensure their little family will have a more sedate ride this time around. We had a bit of spare time on Jersey [...]
Stunning feline duo Max and Isabelle have been reunited with their owner Kristen. Home for these top gun cats is now RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, where Kristen has been posted following a spell in Germany. She's looking forward to settling Max and Isabelle into their new environment. We also received an update on another lovely cat passenger. Matilda travelled with us from Lefkas in March this year, at a rather challenging time for pet travel from Greece. Her journey to the UK started by road, involved an unexpected flight in the middle, and finished by road and sea. Matilda was magnificent throughout, [...]
All photographs on this site are of our animal clients. All countries mentioned are destinations to which we have delivered animals. All species mentioned, we have handled. Bella and Missy are settling in well in Elstree thanks to you and your team getting us here from Beirut! You gave me clear good advice especially about paperwork and procedures. Paul was a star courier — calm, friendly, and uncomplaining about the delays caused by traffic around Brussels and the things that often delay you at the Tunnel! Also thank you to Natalie who handled the admin at a stressful time [...]
