The Fowler family's 5000+ mile journey from Cyprus is over. They are now on their way to Chesterfield to start their six-month quarantine. Our van is now empty, rather sad for us as we have grown so fond of our little passengers over the past week. We really do wish them everything they and Roger and Celia want for themselves in their new life in Lincolnshire. By the way, it's pouring with rain — so English!

Roger and Celia arrived to live in Turkish North Cyprus 14 years ago with their black dog, Lucy. It didn't take long for the plight of the local stray dogs to affect them. During their time there they've owned 20 dogs and have fostered many more on their way to new homes. We are now moving their current 15 much loved adopted dogs and three cats to quarantine in England. Each dog has a tale to tell! The cats, Pinky, George and Gerald, have all come to Roger and Celia via KAR, Kyrenia Animal Rescue. Although rather unenthusiastic about the [...]
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. I would like to thank everybody at Animalcouriers for looking after Afro on her journey from Greece to the UK, and also to the ladies in the office who were always very helpful in answering any queries I had. Afro has settled in very well in her new home in Bexhill-on-Sea. I would happily recommend Animalcouriers. Sharon — (Afro travelled with us from Greece to the UK) Thanks to all at Animalcouriers.

When Mrs Fowler was moving from Berkshire to Cumbria, she had a lot on her plate. Not only moving people and household goods from one place to another, but also deciding on the best way to move her three German Shepherd Dogs and six cats. So Animalcouriers worked out a plan which involved collecting the dogs and cats from Berkshire ahead of the move, arrange boarding for them, then deliver them to Mrs Fowler once the removers had finished and the new house was ready for them. Courier R reports that when he went to collect the animals, the ginger [...]
The Fowler dogs and Bingo all had a great walk today in meadow grass, with poppies, wild flowers and birdsong, while Spike and Rags had their parasite treatment. And it's now the penultimate day of our journey to the UK. Tonight we should overnight in Calais, and tomorrow our quarantine van will meet us at Eurotunnel to collect the Fowler family for their ride North to Chesterfield. As you can imagine, Roger and Celia are starting to relax just a little. An email from Roger says: "Expect it's a bit of a relief to see the Paris signs as it [...]
Everyone was very chilled at the vet's this morning. Rags and Spike had their tick and flea treatment, while the Fowler family took a walk in the morning air. They will all be ready for their crossing tomorrow.
Dogs Rags and Spike joined us in Greece for the journey to the UK. There's a very high standard of client in our van: good behaviour, impeccable manners and lots of pleases and thank yous. We have to agree with Shawn that Rags does indeed look like Poppy Fowler. We feel sure Rags and Spike will fit right in!
Bingo just loves a scratch and a tickle. This makes walking him fairly challenging as all he wants is a tickle here, a scratch there! He thoroughly enjoyed his stroll on the beach this morning, and would probably have liked a swim, too. As for the Fowler family, there's one small problem. These lovely dogs have been living in their own three acres, which means leads are not part of their lives. So this morning was spent disentangling ourselves as we marched to and from the beach. That's all very well when there's only one dog in tow, but quite [...]
Bingo has been in the care of the wonderful Kyrenia Animal Rescue, a registered animal charity recognised by the RSPCA. This quiet, gentle fellow has now joined the boisterous Fowler gang for the trip as far as France. There he'll spend six months in kennels before entering the UK as a French dog with a French passport.
So much fun was had by all loading the 15 dogs into the van! Cats were unimpressed, but dogs were definitely on an adventure! Alfie kept walking up and down inspecting the cages, "maybe this one will nice, no, perhaps this one..." Having finished we went towards Kyrenia to meet up with Bingo, a really sedate gentle dog, and the lovely kennel owners who've been looking after him. Poor chap, travelling with this noisy lot! We reached the port and checked in. At this point, the day went downhill. We discovered that we needed an additional export document. [...]
