Animalcouriers are trained and experienced animal handlers with many years’ practical experience of working with and transporting animals. Team members have a background in animal welfare, animal management or specialist veterinary training. We are used to handling dogs, cats, birds (including birds of prey), livestock, reptiles, exotic species and more; and are experienced at dealing with the related regulations.

We prioritise the safety and comfort of the animals placed in our care, and are committed to making travel as pleasant, stress free and seamless as possible for your pets. We aim to offer you an animal transport service that meets both your needs and those of your animals. Depending on your requirements, your location and destination, and whether your pet will travel by road or by air, we can work with you to organise and carry out the whole trip, or simply advise you on paperwork and how to book.

We have full liability insurance.
