We just wanted to thank you for your help getting our Petzi home! We really appreciated your great service and friendliness — and even more Petzi’s wiggling tail when she walked out of your van. She had obviously been very well treated! 🙂 So please extend our thanks to your drivers Anthony and Shane as well!
Thomas and Annette
A HUGE thank you for getting Fig safely to Berlin. Courier Shane was brilliant as he kept in touch all the way especially with the WhatsApp live location link, and photos of Fig. This was incredibly helpful as I was flying out to Berlin at the same time — I definitely think Fig’s journey was 100 times less stressful than mine! Fig is a bit of a worrier so it was  a relief to hear he had managed the journey well. If I ever move again I will definitely be back in touch and recommend you to any other pet owners that need transport. Please say thanks to Shane from me and Fig.

Animalcouriers relocated my cats from the rural Scottish islands to continental Europe — door to door service — and their service was exceptional. Not only were their prices really reasonable but more importantly I felt secure in their care from the moment they left me. I was kept up to date with their progress and sent photos and regular communications. I was given assistance with all necessary paperwork and a very stressful time was made so much easier — for the cats and me! Thanks to Julia, Martin, Ricardo and the rest of the team — they’re all settled in well, ruling the roost again 😻😻😻
What a moving & wonderful experience it was while our group were awaiting our dogs to arrive from Lemnos. We were included throughout their journey as virtual passengers, having contact & being able to map their progress — it was amazing! Shane & Glenn were so good with the dogs: it was clear to see the relationships they’d built with them by the time they were delivered to us. Savannah had clearly grown very fond of them & wasn’t impressed when they left her behind with us in her new home! Thank you for making our experience so memorable!

I had my 3 cats travel from Portugal to Liverpool at the end of January and the overall experience with Animalcouriers was fantastic! Can’t thank Paul enough for being so kind and keeping me posted throughout the whole trip from Portugal to  their base in UK. I was quite a nag always messaging him worried about my babies 😂 but he was amazing and made sure I was happy and unworried! Anthony then took over and brought them from the base to Liverpool and he was really nice as well! I was also well guided throughout the process regarding all the travel requirements and documents, so can’t thank enough the whole team. Definitely recommend! And thank you again Animalcouriers team for a great job!!! 😍🙏 My babies are now very happy in their new home.
Having your “children” taken care of by someone else is always difficult. We were moving from France to the Netherlands and couldn’t transport our 3 cats ourselves. The entire team were extremely quick to provide an option, at a very good price. Most importantly, they had so much understanding of the anxiety that you feel, as an owner, and mentally supported us throughout the entire process. Our babies were brought home earlier than expected and the drivers kept me updated the entire time. “Don’t worry, mama bear, your kids are alright,” Shane said. And yes, they were perfectly fine when they got home. Thank you again for such a great service. I would absolutely recommend these guys to anyone!
Right from the beginning I felt secure in who I had chosen to bring back my babies from Holland. Everything was clear and precise, very professionally led and very reasonably priced, and I was kept informed along the journey by the courier. My babies arrived safely on the day expected, all went without any hiccups. Would definitely use again and would definitely recommend. In these times it’s good to be promised something and actually see it come together. Thank you to all the team, you are doing a brilliant job.
Definitely a big 5 stars. Used Animalcouriers to bring my dog Nini over from France and I can’t thank them enough. Everything was handled smoothly and great communication throughout.
A massive thank you to Animalcouriers for the safe delivery of our beautiful puppy Lupin. Despite the atrocious weather in the Norfolk area, Lupin arrived happy and rested.
Teresa (Teresa’s puppy Lupin travelled with Animalcouriers in the UK
Thank you so much for the excellent service you and the team have provided! Very happy with how you were able to accommodate us and our requests in a very short time frame, especially with all the changes and challenges imposed by Brexit. Our dogs were clearly very well treated and arrived in great condition.
Jonathan (Tiger & Jezebel travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to The Hague)
Five-star service! Very kind and professional, great communication and superb animal care. Thank you to this fab team.

Thank you so much for coming to our rescue! We’re really grateful for all your help in delivering our new labradoodle puppy, Monty, to our front door. All the way from Fife to Sheffield! We were delighted with your service — brilliant value, reassurance and helpful updates on journey progress. Thanks so much.
Hannah (Monty travelled with Animalcouriers from Fife to Sheffield)
A big thank you for getting our beloved Cockapoo Ralf from Essex to Alcaucin, Spain, in such a professional and caring way. He suffered no ill effects and was happy to see us, but just as happy with the handlers. It helped him settle here greatly. Would recommend your services to anyone.
Tony, Gilly and Ralf
I just wanted to thank you all for the safe delivery of my 6 pooches from Liverpool to Spain. They arrived looking well cared for, as you know I was I was so anxious for their journey but I needn’t have worried as Ricardo was exceptional in looking after them for their new adventure. I can’t thank your team enough for everything you have done in getting my babies to their new home. And anyone who is needing an animal courier should 100% put their trust in yourselves. So thank you again for making my family complete 🐶🐾❤️❤️❤
Thank you so much Animalcouriers for relocating our cat, Kongen from Norway to the UK for us! Having almost given up hope on managing to move him, due to lack of airlines flying animals under Covid-19, we were SO happy to find you! Especially as you have never collected in Norway before — we are so grateful that you went out of your way to make this happen and accommodated us by coming over the border into Norway for collection! Julia went through all the paperwork in advance to make sure that everything was in order… Julia and Martin collected Kongen in Norway and drove him to my parents in the UK where we will soon be joining him. They updated us with their progress, with pictures of Kongen and with how he was doing throughout the journey. Kongen arrived safely, perfectly relaxed, and we can’t wait to see him again! Thank you once again for enabling us to include our pet family member in our move to the UK!
Jan (Jan’s cat Kongen travelled with Animalcouriers from Norway to Cheshire)
I would like to thank you for your team getting my pets from Paris CDG to Cascais, Portugal. Your assistance was faultless and efficient and you were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend your company and I have advised the company in Singapore who I used to process the paperwork for the pets’ travel (also a pet relocation company) that they should use you if they need any help in Europe.
Rebecca (Rebecca’s dogs Kashi and Diego flew from Singapore to Paris CDG, where we collected them and drove them to the Lisbon area of Portugal)
Well folks! It took some doing but it’s done! Thank you all so very much for your patience, understanding and consideration and, more importantly, for taking such good care of our babies. Couriers Shane and Alan are great lads. They kept me informed daily, and I was very grateful for that. If you ever need a recommendation then please let me know. Love and thanks to you all. Keep on truckin’!
Ann (whose dog and cat travelled with us from Alicante to Newcastle upon Tyne)
Our beloved dogs Nora and Laura were reunited with us in Surrey on Friday evening after a long road trip from Portugal. We would like to thank Animalcouriers and their fantastic drivers and carers, Paul and Ricardo, for offering such an excellent service. They were outstanding. Paul communicated with us along their journey, sent a video of our dogs, and showed so much care and compassion. Our dogs arrived very happy and well! Thank you. We would definitely use your services again and I will certainly recommend you to others.
Theo (Whose mum’s 5 cats travelled with us from Athens to London)
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team on behalf of my mum and me for the safe transportation of my mum’s cats. They arrived safe and well from Athens. We found your service very quick and efficient. We particularly appreciated the live updates from the couriers, who were both very friendly and caring. Keep up the good work.
Ann (Ann’s puppy travelled with us from Surrey to Scotland)
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the safe delivery of our puppy Willow. Highly efficient and professional service for the most important delivery ever.
Adam (Adam’s puppy Willow travelled with Animalcouriers from Leicester to Surrey)
I have been meaning to write to you for a month now but puppy kept getting in the way! I wanted to thank you very much for your efficiency in getting my Border Collie puppy Brenky transported from Epsom to deepest Perthshire. I was kept abreast of the journey throughout the day and the puppy arrived in fine fettle. In these challenging times I was extremely impressed with the service I received.
Ann (Ann’s puppy travelled with us from Surrey to Scotland)
Serra, Rey and Tommy are gradually adapting to their new UK environment after their adventure from Praia D’El Rey. If they could speak we’re sure they would tell us they were very well looked after throughout their trip. Thank you all at AC for taking such good care of them
Paul (Serra, Rey and Tommy travelled with Animalcouriers from Portugal to the UK)
Just a final thank you for all your help in bringing Bea and Chilly Boy back to the UK. I collected them today and they are now at home and still talking to me. Great people and great service. Well done to all your team.
Colin, Izzy, Bea and Chilly Boy “CB”!!! (Chilly Boy and Bea travelled with Animalcouriers from Portugal to the UK)
The rats and gerbils are all in great health and now tucking into some pumpkin seeds. I can’t thank you enough for the great service you have provided. 10/10 for Animalcouriers.
Nathan (The rats and gerbils travelled with us from Helsinki to London)
Cannot recommend Animalcouriers enough — they were brilliant. Richard brought our Peggy to Spain from the UK. She arrived safe and happy, and Richard looked after her so well. Having lost our other dog to bone cancer 3 weeks before, we were so upset to hand our Peggy over, and so worried about how she would be on her own, but Richard did a brilliant job. Massive thank you to the whole team.

Angie (Peggy travelled to Spain from the UK with Animalcouriers )

Thanks very much for taking care of everything so efficiently. You sure eased the whole process and I am very grateful for that. Little Chico arrived safe and sound and in great shape! Expect to open another file soon when I find a little girl to keep him company…

Liz (Chico flew to Bermuda)

You guys. I can’t begin to thank you for making my dream come true. My entire life I have waited for this moment. Ukaleq was a happy camper straight out of the crate. He walked ahead of me into my house as if he has lived here forever. He loves sand, dead iguanas and chasing frogs…

Jane (Ukaleq travelled from Denmark to the UK with us and then flew to Grand Cayman)

A very big thank you to all at Animalcouriers who sorted the transport of my Bernese Mountain Dog Henry, from UK to Kenya. The staff were extremely helpful, supportive and informative. The well-being of my beloved dog was their top priority and they made what I thought would be a massive headache into an easy and painless transition. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this company. A job well done.

Julie (Henry flew from the UK to Kenya)

Seth is getting on great thank you, it’s so good to finally have him here! Thanks so much again for all your help, you made everything so easy and stress free.

(Seth flew from the UK to New Zealand)

Lisa is very happy at her new home in Wimbledon! My wife and I would like to thank Animalcouriers for taking good care of our sweet cat, making sure that Lisa arrived safe and sound! Thank you so much. I would urge people to choose this company! Their pets would be in safe hands!!

John — (Lisa travelled with Animalcouriers from Greece to the UK)

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. My pups arrived safely home. I highly recommend the professional and friendly service and I’m sure if Pickle and Chewie could talk they would be sending their thanks.

Carol — (Pickle and Chewie travelled with us from Greece to the UK)

Thank you for your professionalism and friendly phone calls in the recent transfer of Julius from Sweden to us in Altrincham. We were particularly impressed by the contact we had from you on the journey, including encouraging messages and photos.

Importing a cat is obviously a complicated and expensive thing to do but you made it as easy as possible from start to finish. Julius has settled in well with us and appears to have suffered no stress at all. He is absolutely the friendliest cat in the world!!

Please pass on our thanks to all the team — we would certainly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone hoping to bring a cat over from Europe.

Val and Alan — Syrinx Abyssinians (see Julius on his journey with us)

A very big thank you to Animalcouriers for transporting our 2 cats from Spain to the uk, it was the second time I’ve used them, they provide excellent service and really do care for the animals they transport, with regular updates given. Bolly & Bertie are settling back into UK life and although I know they’re not keen on being away from us, I felt happy to know they were in good hands.

Tina, Glenn, Bolly, Bertie, nanny & Elaine x (Bolly & Bertie on their journey with us)

A massive thank you to everyone at Animalcouriers for getting my boy Lincoln home safe to me. Thank you to those in the office dealing with my emails — they were always quick to respond, reassure me, answer any queries and were all so patient with me! And also thank you to the guys on the road for keeping me updated on their travels and even kindly sending me photos of my little monster. Lincoln was one happy bunny and very well looked after! I will definitely use your services again and would definitely recommend you to anyone interested in transporting their pet!

Alexia & Lincoln (Lincoln travelled with us from the UK to Greece)

Thank you so much for looking after Scooby & Ole so beautifully. You really are stars. They were sad to see you go as you drove off! It’s wonderful to be reunited but we think your service is second to none & we shall recommend you to all our friends as we have total faith in your care.

Mike, Zaria , Scooby & Ole (Scooby & Ole travelled with us from the UK to Marbella in Spain)

Thank you all for everything you did for Tommy and us to bring him to the UK. From start to finish you have been professional, courteous and helpful, and we could not have wished for Tommy to have travelled with a better company and companion in Richard. My colleagues also enjoyed my daily updates of Tommy and have already asked for your details in case they need them. You have been brilliant and we wish you continued success. Tommy is now settled in and enjoying a cold Scotland!

John & Amina (Tommy travelled with us from Spain to Scotland)

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 for me! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Simon (Meet Bella & Missy)

Thank you very much for safely delivering our cats Grey and Smudge from Greece to Wales. I felt very confident in placing our treasures in your care. You impressed me with your care and professionalism. Thank you too for patiently outlining the different options of travel.

Lynn (Meet Grey and Smudge)

I just wanted to thank you & the team for getting the troops to their new home safe & sound. Although it was a long first trip for them all, they seem to have coped very well & are settled in very well. You wouldn’t have thought they had travelled all the way from Italy. I would certainly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone who needs their pet transported.

John (Whose six dogs travelled with us from Italy to Spain)

Just had my cats delivered by the lovely Fiona to my new home in the Scottish Highlands. They are remarkably happy and relaxed. Excellent service: thank you!


Excellent service! Second time we had to move our chipmunk (Piccola), who travelled with Animalcouriers. So well cared for my little one, and so much patience with me and my hundred emails! Excellent company who you can truly trust! They look after your loved ones as if they were their own. Thank you so much Animalcouriers for such an amazing service!

Piccola, Pam & Dario (Piccola travelled with us from Cambridge to Italy)

Thank you so very much for everything. Star has arrived safely and is sitting next to me now! It means a lot to my daughter to have her cat with us while we go through a rather challenging adjustment period. I’m very grateful indeed for your care of Star.


Thank you for taking such good care of Zak, I couldn’t have asked for a better and safe service for my Pomeranian, book him in for next year!


Grizzly arrived with courier Richard last evening. We are thrilled to have him home with us and I just wanted to thank you all, and most especially Richard, who was fantastic throughout the whole trip. I can’t praise the service you have given us enough, and will always thoroughly recommend your caring and professional service.

Jane (Grizzly travelled with us from France to the UK)

Thank you so much for getting our cat Midnight to Utrecht quickly and safely a few weeks ago. She has settled in really well and she doesn’t seem to have been bothered by the journey at all. We are so pleased! We were so impressed by everyone at Animalcouriers. It was a pleasure to hand her over to Ray knowing she was in safe hands and also to have her delivered by Joe in Utrecht. It’s very clear they cared about her on her long journey and that was a real relief to us. Thanks so much for providing such a great service.Lisa, Adrian and Midnight
Thank you so much for looking after Scooby and Ole so well across Spain and France.They are very happy and healthy … it’s wonderful to have them back. Thank you so much for everything.

Mike, Zaria, Scooby & Ole

We just wanted to say thank you again for all your assistance in transporting Jerry to us here in Portugal, he is very settled after his journey. We will definitely be recommending Animalcouriers to everyone, your service has been fantastic.

Tracey & Simon (whose Staffie Jerry travelled with us from Essex to the Algarve)

Thank you so much for looking after our 8 babies in transit and delivering them safely to us here in Norfolk. It’s less than 24 hours and already they’re remarkably calm and appear quite settled. We’re delighted to have them with us, so it’s a very happy household all round.

Paul and Kerry (Whose 8 cats travelled with us from Denia in Spain to Norfolk)

Valerie helped me to move my two babies Bella and Pepito to the UK. I loved the way she treated them with love and care!!! It was the first time for me with all this and I was so anxious but Animalcouriers helped me with everything!!! Thank you guys!!! Valerie, you are the best.

Aggeliki (We transported Aggeliki’s young pets, Maltese Terrier/Chihuahua Bella and cat Pepito, from Greece to Newcastle)

I used Animalcouriers to bring my cats back from France and I can’t praise them highly enough. They were fantastic — recommend them any time!

Rosemary (Boogie and Zsa-Zsa travelled with us from the south of France to the UK)

Dear all, a quick thank you for taking such good care of Zak. Richard was amazing, I couldn’t have asked for a better or safer service for my Pomeranian. Book him in for next year!

Natasha (Zak travelled with us from the south of France to London)

Legislation changes / documentation requirements etc, an absolute nightmare of paperwork to be sorted. I left all of this to the Animalcouriers team. No problems at all, and Bridget the Midget arrived safe and sound. Nicest thing for me, as Bridget is only a puppy, were the ongoing updates, pictures and reassurance that all was in hand. She’s all settled in now and adapting to the heat. Thank you all for getting her here safely.

Jody (Animalcouriers arranged for Bridget the Midget to fly to Kuwait)

Lucy arrived safe and sound. She wasn’t affected by the flight at all — super traveller! Once again I would like to say a HUGE thank you for your services. You make everything smooth, easy and worry free. My mum said your courier was very caring, that it was an excellent service.

Joanne (Joanne’s cat Lucy flew from Manchester to Gibraltar. We collected her from her Leeds home and checked her in for her flight. Lucy was a returning passenger — we previously arranged a flight for her in the opposite direction.)

Thank you so much for your excellent courier service to get our two cats Ruby and Toby to Scotland. We are extremely grateful to courier Rickie. He kept me updated all along the journey — the weather was foul and as a result there was traffic congestion on the A1. I would recommend your company wholeheartedly to anyone embarking on long distance travel.

Susan (Susan’s cats Ruby and Toby travelled with us from Suffolk to the Scottish borders)

Nazare is settling in ok and enjoyed Christmas with the whole family. My son was so grateful for having her for Christmas — he told me that was his best present we could have.

Maria and Nazare (little dog Nazare travelled with us from Portugal to Oxford)

A big thank you for transferring safely Yoshi from Greece to Kidderminster. You treated my cat with love. You are a team of high-level professionals. Thank you so much, my cat and me are very happy and content.

Maria (British Blue Yoshi travelled with us from Greece to the UK)

Thank you for your help & assistance during the summer regarding moving young dog Carlo from his native region of Abruzzo to the north west of England. Your logistics and administration were fully appreciated by us both.

John & Liz (Carlo travelled with Animalcouriers from Italy to the UK)

I wanted to thank you for everything. It was absolutely wonderful to be reunited with Cassie and I am so grateful for all your help and assistance. You provide an amazing service and I don’t know how you do it. I would be constantly weeping!

Emma (Cassie travelled with us from Athens to Cambridge)

Finally! after everything we did it, and thanks to you too my Kitty is finally where she belongs. A thank you is not enough to show you how much I appreciate all the effort you put in to make my wish come true. You are wonderful people and I will never forget you. Thanks again a million to all of you. You made me really happy — keep up the good work.

Sonia (Kitty was kind of catnapped by her neighbour, eventually handed over to us several months later (minus her passport), at which point we organised a new passport for Kitty and were able to deliver her to Sonia in Italy)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help in the export of Jack and Crumble. I collected them from the American vets this morning and they are busy settling into their new home. A fabulous service — thank you so very much. I would highly recommend you to anyone moving with their pets!

Lynne (Lynne’s cats travelled from Pontefract to Manchester, then flew to Abu Dhabi with Etihad. Animalcouriers arranged their travel boxes, collection, paperwork and flight. The American Veterinary Clinic in Abu Dhabi took care of the import permit and clearance services in UAE.)

Thanks very much for safe transportation of our three cats. We had a disastrous move from France with many items damaged. Your part in the move was the only positive one, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the safe return of our cats.

John and Alexandra

Thank you very much for your help. Cats are in good mood and good health. Thanks to courier S for her great attitude. Very kind of you to transport Katja and Lucy from Nice all the way to Edinburgh. You have done a fantastic job.


A very big thank you to all for getting our dogs safely to France. We picked them up from kennels yesterday and they looked so happy and relaxed (unlike us!). It was great to read the blog and see them so happy and already enjoying their new life in France! Thank you so very much — your help, support and kindness were very much appreciated.

Karen (Max, Jake, Loopy, Maisie and Poppy travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to France)

I just want to say ‘thank you’ to everyone at Animalcouriers for all you help, understanding and patience during the course of our endeavours to get Frankie to Bluntisham from the Dordogne.

Dorothy (Frankie travelled with Animalcouriers from the Dordogne to the UK)

Animal Angels would be a more appropriate name.

Having spent several stressful weeks trying to find a safe and reliable way to get my four puppies back from Greece I was recommended to Animal Couriers via ABTA.
Four pups was a bigger challenge than I’d ever expected but from the very first phone call I knew Zeus, Bella, Hercules and Bear would be properly looked after. The lovely thing was that I was looked after too!

Despite being delayed by a Greek ferry strike and gale force winds I could see the pups were absolutely chilled and happy as I was sent a daily stream of photos, texts and emails of their journey. If they could do a review I think Bella would say:

‘Me and the boys loved our adventure with you. Thank you Auntie Julia and Martin for all the rest stops and cuddles and for understanding that we can’t hold on as long as the big boys. And thank you for helping mum. She’s hopeless with paperwork and you made it easy-peasey.

Also Zeus would like to give one of his, newly learnt, high fives for that nice Rebecca lady who looked after us in Lesvos until you arrived xxx’Huge thank you Animal Angels from the Lyotier Family (four bundles of fun: Bella, Bear, Hercules & Zeus travelled from Lesvos in Greece with Animalcouriers)

Thank you all SO much for everything that you did in getting Baloo back to England to our new home. Thank you for being so kind and efficient and most of all reassuring to me that he was in safe hands. He has spent a few hours exploring the new house, miaowing a lot, and is now curled up on a chair asleep. It is really lovely having him home again.

Fiona (Baloo travelled with Animalcouriers from France to the UK)

Petra is an absolute sweetheart, loves contact and affection. There was no way I could leave her to fend for herself over an uncertain Lesvos winter. She’s special and it has been so worth all the worry and expense to give her the forever home she deserves. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done to get her here. I’m so deeply grateful.

Kat (Petra travelled from Greece to the UK with Animalcouriers)

We would like to thank Animalcouriers for the wonderful service provided. Everything was perfectly arranged, the service was amazing. Our cats Dragao and Sofia arrived very well!

Tania & Alex (Dragao & Sofia travelled with Animalcouriers from Spain to the UK)

Thank you so much to all the team at Animalcouriers for transporting our wee Jack Russell, Molly, from Guadalajara in Spain to Glasgow. Due to a sudden and unforeseen change in her living circumstances, she had to move to Scotland at short notice and I was very anxious about the whole process. Following my first call to Animalcouriers I was immediately reassured as Julia talked me through the whole process and put me at ease. Everything went exactly to plan and Molly arrived safe and happy in Glasgow after her road trip, being very well cared for by courier Rickie who picked her up in Spain, and courier Dave who delivered her to our door in Glasgow. I was kept fully informed of her progress during her trip. As well as wanting to say a big thank you to couriers J , R and D I would also like thank everyone in the office who were very kind and patient with my frequent calls to them. If anyone needs their pet transported go to Animalcouriers — and I know the wee bilingual Molly would say the same. Thanks again.

Tom (Molly travelled with Animalcouriers on a bespoke trip from Guadalajara in Spain to Glasgow)

Our French Bulldog Coco arrived safely in Florida, thank you again for such an easy transition with her. I always imagined it would be difficult to ship a pet, but you took all that away… Thank you so much for everything you have done.

Macellus (Animalcouriers arranged Cocos flight and paperwork from the UK to Florida)

Thank you for taking such a good care of Iorek. Both my family and I were amazed by the care and attention you provided for him through his first travelling experience. Iorek has settled well in Italy and is coping with the heat by taking every opportunity he gets to splash around when the garden water sprinkles are on! I will strongly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone who needs your service.

Isabella (Iorek travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to Italy)

I just wanted to thank you so much for the professional and kind assistance you provided me with. I was extremely pleased with the efficiency of your service, culminated in a perfect trip with the equally nice Dave. My lovely little Pandora and I are now happily together in London (which she already loves!!) and, should I need this service again in the future, I already know I can rely on you.

Margherita (we helped Margherita and toy poodle Pandora move urgently from Paris to London)

I would like to thank everyone at Animalcouriers for keeping me informed, for ensuring that my six cats were well looked after, and for the care and attention you gave them when they arrived in the UK. I am so glad that a company such as yours was there to take so much of the stress and worry out of importing them into the UK. They are all home with me now and, after spending a week inside their new home, all have ventured out to explore their new territory. A big big thank you from not only myself, but from six happy cats!

Hilary (Animalcouriers arranged flights for Hilary’s six cats to fly from North Cyprus to the UK and then delivered them to her new home in Durham)

A huge thank you for reuniting us with Jimmie and Millie last week; in addition thank you so much for the enormous effort you put in to resolving the delays after the passport problem so speedily. Mike our courier was also fantastic and kept us well informed during their trip, the cats arrived safe and sound and are now very much at home en France.I just wanted to say how very impressed we have been both with your organisation in general and particularly with the great consideration you give to the welfare of the animals you are transporting. We would be very happy to recommend your services!

Meryl (Animalcouriers moved her three cats from the UK to France)

I want to thank you and your amazing team for your wonderful service. Courier Mike was waiting at the airport for me, a sight for sore eyes! I have nothing but praise for him — helpful, courteous, knowledgeable about the whole process, reassuring, excellent with the dogs and an all-round star! He even took the trouble, without being asked, to keep my son updated on where we were at various key stages. He delivered us all safe and sound and to the estimated hour, and made the last leg of a tedious and worrying journey an absolute pleasure! At the office end of things I greatly appreciated your prompt responses, helpful attitude, and knowledge and advice of what to expect.

Anna (Anna and her three dogs relocated from Chile via Paris to Margate, Animalcouriers collected them in Paris and transported them all for the last leg of the journey)

Thanks for all your help. It was a long day, but courier Mike was fantastic. I spoke with a lot of couriers and what stood out for me about you guys was your communication — it made me feel confident.

Amanda (We moved Ellis and Amanda from Paris to London)

Just a quick note to thank you and the team for the excellent service provided getting our cats (and us!) safely back to UK. Courier S was great company and we felt like long lost friends when we finally said goodbye at Kingston! I would certainly not hesitate to recommend your company to others.

Vernon & Margaret (We helped move their cats and them from Nigeria to Paris and on to the UK)

We met Animalcouriers in Volos to hand over our dog Robbie and cat Nala for their journey back to the UK. To say I was emotional and worried is an understatement, but after meeting couriers J and M I felt so much better as I could tell they were in very good hands. Courier J kept us updated of their journey regularly and was even good enough to look after them both in the UK for us until we got back. I can’t really express how grateful we both are to Animalcouriers for such a personal and professional service, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone else. It’s always an emotional time but it was made so much easier with their help, thanks guys you were great!

Andrea & Tommy (We moved Robbie & Nala from Greece to the UK)

Thank you for transporting Pantera over from Milan for us. I was amazed at how calm and good she looked after such a long journey. I particularly want to thank the courier who brought her over. Pantera has settled into life in England with no problems and was pleased to be reunited with all of us once again.


Thank you so much, my fur babies all arrived far more chilled than I’d ever hoped and seem to have taken the whole thing remarkably well. They all settled down in their new home quickly and even Teddy, who was way more worried than the others, calmed down quickly. Thanks for taking such good care of them — and for putting up with Herbie’s singing!!

Tracy (We moved Tracey’s six cats from Sussex to Bridlington, where she’s setting up a cattery)

Thanks to courier M’s excellent driving and courier J’s great organisation and planning, the journey from UK to Malta went very smoothly without a hitch – apart from the weather! The animals coped well, better than I thought they would. Even my catfish and axolotls were unfazed by the journey.All my turtles and tortoises have settled down quickly in their new home and are making the most of the unseasonably warm weather here – 20′ in November! They enjoy basking in the sun for hours next to my huge south facing picture windows. Snails are well too.Lovely to see Ophelia reunited with her loving owner – she’s a beautiful cat and I got very attached to her on the journey to Malta (lots of tickles and cuddles on rest stops).

Gerry (Gerry and her 65 tortoises and turtles of various types, 12 axolotls, 13 fish and quite a number of invertebrates, including some Giant African land snails travelled with us from the UK to Malta)

Thank you courier S for bringing Poa and Avi from Gothenburg to Manchester. They came to their new home safe and happy. Thank you also for taking them to your own home overnight.Poa and Avi will absolutely travel with you guys again, should the need occur!
They are now happily running around in their new garden and enjoying the huge nearby park.Cecelia & Jeff (Poa and Avi travelled with Animalcouriers from Sweden to the UK)
THANK YOU for being so wonderfully efficient and reliable throughout the process of moving Bear and Dynamite to Paris! The family were so happy to be reunited with them, and it helped enormously to know once the ball was rolling, I didn’t have anything to worry about.

Lucy (Bear and Dynamite travelled with us from the UK to Paris)

Thank you so much once again for this perfect voyage that you organized for Bibi, you provide a truly serious and loving service for animal travel, I might even come and stay in your van soon 🙂

Alex (Bibi travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to France)

I’d just like to say many thanks to couriers S and L for getting Jack and Athena safely back from Portugal. They’re both settling in now although the British weather is not quite to their liking. They are also slightly bemused by the cows in the field at the bottom of our garden. Your service was very efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend Animalcouriers to anyone looking for animal transport from abroad.

Fiona (Jack and Athena travelled with us from Portugal to the UK)

I want to thank you for the way you cared for my big fellow. The trip was in very good conditions and we are very happy to be with Jedi in the UK. Keep going, you are doing a great job!

Joanna (Jedi travelled with us from Portugal to the UK)

I would like to congratulate the team for their wonderful care of Peewee and Belinha. They were so relaxed and happy when they got home, even after three days of travelling. My mother, who sent them to me, was instantly so very satisfied. And she was so nervous during the days before. Thank you and I will definitely recommend to all! Five star service!

Maria (Peewee & Belinha travelled with us from the Portugal to the UK)

A very sincere thank you! Donna is extremely happy in her new home in the UK, but not as happy as her two young best friends. The girls are thrilled to be back with her again.

Donna and the girls (Donna travelled from Sweden to the UK)

I want to thank you for bringing Benji to me. It means the world to me that he is by my side.

Catia (Benji travelled with us from the Spain to the UK)

The grand reunion took place as planned and Bart has made himself at home. He obviously travelled first class in 5-star luxury. Many thanks to you and your team. I will certainly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone we know looking for pet transport.

Joe (Bart travelled from the UK to France)

We would like to thank you sincerely for taking care of Nellie and Bonnie and delivering them safely to us. When we started to plan the move they were our main concern, but we were confident that they would be ok with you, which enabled us to concentrate on the move itself. We wish you much success in the future, and will readily recommend you to anyone who needs an animal courier.

Val and David (cats Nellie and Bonnie travelled with us from the UK to Spain)

Just a few words to thank you and your team for taking so much care of Nina during her trip to London. Nina arrived in a very good shape, she spent the entire next day sleeping on my bed. Now she has started her normal life and routine in our new place (like stalking people from the window). In case of future needs I know who to call.

Sandro (Nina travelled with us from Italy to London)

Cooper made it home safe and sound and very happy. He is hanging out with our family in Ohio until we pick him up in a few weeks. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We couldn’t be more happy with how he was cared for on his journey. From the pictures you posted it looked like he was having a blast and made some new friends.

Scotty (Animalcouriers drove Cooper from Italy to London and arranged his flight from Heathrow to Ohio)

I’m pleased to tell you that Millie arrived safe and well in Calgary. It was a lovely family reunion at the airport! Thank you so much for everything you have done to get her to Canada smoothly. It feels like home now she’s here!

Jane (Animalcouriers arranged for Millie to fly from England to Canada)

May we say a huge thank you to Animalcouriers for the wonderful service you have offered us, from the first days back in January when we first contacted you about transporting our much loved family, to the moment they were delivered safely and in great shape to our door. After some incredibly stressful and emotional moments whilst relocating back to the UK from Greece, we are all very happy and looking forward to our new life, and would like to offer our eternal gratitude to Animalcouriers and in particular to couriers J and M for their dedication to our cat family whilst in their care. Keep up the fantastic work!

Linda and Terry (Lily, Ollie, Charlie, Ouzo and Daisy travelled with us from Skiathos in Greece, to the UK)

Just wanted to tell you Bob arrived, and he’s ok. Thank you so much for all your help over the past 6 months, it’s been hard going at times but at least he’s there now. Will you also thank courier S again — you can tell she loves animals.

Ann (Bob the Shih Tzu flew from the UK to Australia)

Thank you very much for all the arrangements that were made to bring Paddington to Windsor. We were very pleased to see him arrive safe and sound. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone moving from Geneva with a pet.

Margaret (Paddington travelled with us from Geneva to Windsor)

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the safe delivery of Florence and Lucca to us. They have clearly been exceptionally well looked after while in your care, and they are now both happily exploring their new home. We are loving having them back in our lives.We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your service to anyone wanting their pet transported with professionalism and, most importantly, top notch care.

Helen (Lucca and Florence travelled from the UK to Tuscany, Italy with Animalcouriers)

Love the blog updates! Molly looks very happy and we are looking forward to collecting her tomorrow. You guys have done a great job and helped us out tremendously when we had slight translation issues.

Kayleigh (Molly, the Eurasier puppy, travelled with us from Madrid to Glasgow)

Many thanks for all the Giuseppe pictures which made our days much happier and easier while we were waiting for him and we could follow the trip. We are very grateful to you for looking after Giuseppe so well.

Linda, Alejandro and Giuseppe (Giuseppe travelled from the UK to Murcia, Spain with Animalcouriers)

I just wanted to say a big thank you for taking good care of Freddie & George. They flew from Manchester to Chicago. What a great professional, caring business you run, from beginning to end.


These experts from Animalcouriers were great. I picked them because they already had experience with getting a dog to Bermuda via London Gatwick and, as a bonus, their price was reasonable. It was professional service with a good dose of kindness and understanding about the stress of a move. I would recommend them and use them again. The dog was happy to go with the courier who got him and after the flight the next day, he looked well-cared for. I think he even got a home grooming because he smelled lovely.

Safriti (Capability flew from the UK to Bermuda with the help of Animalcouriers)

Thank you for the safe delivery of Ilkie, wonderful service provided by all at Animalcouriers.

Eileen (Ilkie travelled to John O’Groats from France with Animalcouriers)

Thank you for all your help and care in getting the animals here — we definitely couldn’t have done it without your guidance and attention to detail.

Sandra (Cassie, Nya and 3 cats flew from the UK to Sydney with the help of Animalcouriers)

I just wanted to thank you for looking after Scooby on his little adventure to Gibraltar. He looks in great condition and is in fine form snooping around his new home.

Ryan (Scooby travelled from the UK to Gibraltar with Animalcouriers)

Its been a wonderful experience working with you at Animalcouriers, I shall certainly recommend you. I’m hooked on the blogs now too, I’ve signed up to get them!!!!

Loved seeing my 3 boys in transit this afternoon, they look relaxed and comfy! So glad you were recommended to us. Much better than being squashed up in little cages in the car with us amongst all our belongings!! So looking forward to having them at home soon. You really are wonderful people and do great work. Thank you

Susie (Hugo, Red and Ruben travelled from France to the UK with Animalcouriers)

Thank you so much for the safe delivery of our much loved girls, and the care and love you shared with them — by far the best way we have travelled them.

Sheila & Jill (Cali, Scali and Miski travelled with us from Jersey to Crete)

Animalcouriers have been amazing all the way through some very complicated beaurocracy issues that I could not have sorted out alone here in Ecuador. I want to recommend them to everyone. Despite my having to change my plans last minute due to some beaurocracy laws in Ecuador, Animalcouriers have been extremely helpful to me. They are fast to respond to document problems and help out no matter what, and are very responsible. If you hire their services you can have peace of mind with your pet in their hands.

Carla (Carla travelled with Honi by air from London to Ecuador)

A huge THANK YOU to you all at Animalcouriers for assisting us in getting Teddy and Ellie from Heathrow to RAF Mildenhall. I truly appreciated the great communication throughout the entire process; it put me at ease (as much as possible:) knowing that the dogs were in good hands. Every time we encountered an issue or change (last minute change in crate sizes, phones that didn’t work when we landed, etc.), L responded quickly by email and was very understanding and accommodating. Courier R was also patient and friendly despite issues getting on base. The pups are doing well and loving the English countryside!


We all want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the wonderful people at Animalcouriers. Special hugs from all of us to courier S and courier M. Thank you so much for the lovely trip. You and all the background organisers have been fantastic. Kitties all took to their new home — no stress — no worries.

Francesca (Francesca and her 10 cats travelled from Switzerland to the Isle of Mull)

Just to let you know everything went fine. Our two cats are now with us and they look happy to be in the UK. The service was five star and I will recommend it.

Rui (Romeu and Pandorinha travelled from Portugal to London)

Thank you so much for all your hard work — without you, I don’t think Muffin would have made the flight, so thank you very much, we really appreciate it.

Kevin, Cigdem and Muffin (Muffin flew to South Africa)

Many warm thanks for a job very very well done indeed. When we met up with your catmobile in Glasgow our cats were bright eyed and bushy tailed, which is more than can be said of me after driving down from Forres to Glasgow! If you ever need a recommendation don’t hesitate to ask me, I am very impressed indeed by your friendly and efficient organisation.

Ruth (Harlequin and Moonbeam from Brindisi to Scotland)

Everyone at Animalcouriers has been most helpful. We were very impressed with your first class service and your concerns to ensure that all goes as smoothly as possible for us and especially Missy. We thank you for your diligent assistance in getting Missy on her way at very short notice. Clearly a most efficient and caring service.

Linda (Missy travelled from Spain to the UK)

Many thanks to all at Animalcouriers for bringing our little kitten over from Italy. She has settled in already and is keeping the other animals in line, despite her size!

Helen (Rescue kitten Xenia travelled with us from Italy to Northern Ireland in November 2013. She joins the family’s existing dogs and cats who travelled with us in 2011 and 2012.)

I would like to say a huge thank you for all your help with sending Jasper to Joburg last week. He arrived safely and is now back in Zimbabwe with my sister, running around with her dogs and enjoying all the sunshine! It seemed like a daunting process but your help and guidance made it so much easier.


Milly arrived safe and sound and settled in imeadiately. She had a great journey and we are so greatful to you all for your wonderful service, from picking her up from the breeder in the UK to her arrival in Venice. Milly is bright and a beautiful bundle of fun and already learnt to walk on her lead.

Lindsey (Milly travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to Venice)

Just wanted to let you know that Sindy has settled so well into her new home. Thenk you very much to all your team for taking care of her and delivering her safely.

Katrina & Sindy (Sindy travelled with Animalcouriers from France to the UK)

Thank you so much for delivering Kiara safely to London from Glasgow. Despite what must have been a long journey for her she arrived fit and well and settled in to her new home straightaway. Sarah was everything one might hope for in a courier – capable, confident, efficient, experienced and reassuring, as well as being warm and friendly. Animalcouriers provides a wonderful service to pet owners and I will be recommending you to everyone. Thank you again.

Maureen & Kiara

Thank you so much for the excellent care you gave my boy Milo on his trip from Lorgues to Lymington last week. I was very worried about how he would be as he’s not good with strangers but he was fine and that is down to all of you being so calm, friendly and professional. I can’t wait to be reunited with him tomorrow. A big thanks to the whole team for making something very stressful go so smoothly. I will definitely recommend you to anyone needing this kind of service.

Kim and Milo (Milo travelled with Animalcouriers from France to the UK)

Thank you for everything you did in the smooth process of flying Garlic from London to Bucharest. You made what I found to be very stressful the complete opposite. Garlic has settled in well and he is basking in the sunshine. Once again, thank you so much to the whole team.

James (Garlic flew from the UK to Bucharest)

I just wanted to say that Chubbs loved the time you spent together, she looked so happpy and well looked after when we saw her for the first time afer her journey! Before courier S collected Chubbs from Portugal we were so scared to be giving our little princess to a stanger, but you put us all at ease and Chubbs took to you immediately! So thank you from the bottom of hearts, keep up the good work.

Matt, Sonia and Chubbs (Chubbs travelled with Animalcouriers from Spain to the UK)

I just want to say a big thank you for getting Kikouyou to Cambridge. The whole team at Animalcouriers were fabulous. Courier J in particular you were very responsive to my numerous questions and emails (I know there were a lot!!!!). Not only were you professional but also the most competitive quote I received, which I appreciated given I had just moved to the UK and was a bit cost conscious. Courier S was absolutely F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C as well. She updated me on a daily basis on the progress of the journey and you can truly feel she is passionate about what she does. So thank you again everyone. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends and my clients.

Marie and Kikouyou

Rumy arrived safe and sound and she’s just settling in and currently sleeping under the bed after exploring the house. Thank you very much for bringing her over safely for us. The blog you guys run shows just how much you actually care about your job and the animals, which is more than I’ve seen from anyone else! If we ever have to move a pet again it will be you who we will call. Really good job and good luck with all your future trips.

Michael, Clio and Rumy (Rumy travelled from Greece to the UK with Animalcouriers)

You were so good to Angel and the family when you cared for her. We will definitely use you again if we need to, and we always recommend you!

Jo (Angel travelled with Animalcouriers from the UK to Spain)

Thanks for everything. An efficient, caring service. I’d certainly recommend Animalcouriers.

Karen, Rick and Tor, who travelled with us from Germany

I’d like to thank Animalcouriers and Traveldog for making this happen. My sis and I are very grateful. Please let me know if I could do something for you. I will definitely recommend Animalcouriers to anybody that needs to arrange travel for his/her pet, and I will keep you in mind for the future.

Olga (Jimmy & Lupi travelled with Animalcouriers from Spain to Calais)

I’m sending this e-mail to thank you all for everything. Short notice to transport my cat Voyou, then issues with the airline going to Dublin which was retraining their staff meant another flight had to be found. I did not expect such a great service and quick resolution but you did it. Amazing team you have.I always received a fast response from you about all my concerns, and updates about my lovely cat Voyou (photos on your website and comments), this was wonderful. Voyou has been at home for a week and he is enjoying every moment of his life with us and will not get out of my bed. Thanks again and I know I will be using your services again if I need a transporter, and I will spread your company details.

Sabrina and Voyou, who travelled with us from Le Mans to Dublin

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Tyche. She is a darling dog and we all adore her already! We all loved the blog and it was a good way for her new family to get to know her before she arrived. I would recommend you all anytime! And I will continue to try and raise awareness for The Ark and rehoming dogs in the UK.

Wizzy (Tyche was rescued from Corfu)

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to getting Ella to England! She seems to have travelled well, is settling in brilliantlly, and proving quick to learn. She’s lovely, and we are very appreciative of all the help we have had to get her here.

Gillian and David (Ella travelled from Greece with Animalcouriers)

Thank you for everything. You went over and beyond expectations. You really made this move possible. Thanks for taking care of our babies.

Sarah (Jack Russels Mack and Millie flew from the UK to New Zealand)

Now we are home and everything went just perfekt. Thank you so much for all help! You have been amazing!

Jenny (Animalcouriers arranged for Jenny’s gun dog puppy Vilendal to fly from the UK to Copenhagen)

A massive thank you to everyone at Animalcouriers. In such short notice you still managed to bring my baby Tristan home safe and sound. I will certainly be recommending you services to my fellow pet owners!

Claudia, whose cat Tristan travelled with us from the UK to Switzerland

I would like to thank courier S for her wonderful attitude towards our Buster. He is a very special puppy to us. I have every confidence in your service and would recommend you to anyone. It has been a pleasure to let one of my puppies go to a new home with no worries.

Judy (breeder of Buster, who travelled with us from the UK to south west France)

I can’t begin to thank you enough for your excellent organization and care of Tiny Tim. The care at the Gatwick home was outstanding. I think he was ready to move in with M and L. What lovely and caring people. He arrived in Tampa ready to go! Happy to be out of the box but in great shape! You made one of the most nerve-racking experiences of my life sooo much easier with your reassurances and prompt response.

Jane (Jane’s elderly poodle Tiny Tim flew with Animalcouriers from Faro in Portugal to Tampa in the US, via Gatwick. He stayed for a night with couriers M2 and L, who let him sleep on their bed as he was crying.)

My little girl has been here almost a week now, she’s wonderful and so good. Sincere thanks must go to your company and especially courier M2 who cared for her so well. She has such a lovely temperament, he ensured this continued by giving her all the care possible for which I’m very grateful. I will be back again in the future.


Thank you so much for you kind and caring way you have dealt with Carol’s cats on this long trip from North Cyprus. You have both been wonderful and shown lots of compassion to all the animals on board.Your blog is a great way to keep up to date on whats going on, its very helpful and gives reassurance to all the pet owners.Although you both must get fazed at some point with the problems you have come up against you always get there in the end.

Keep up the fantastic work you do.


Couriers S and L picked Gato up ahead of schedule and kept in touch each step of the way, and we picked up a happy enough cat from Caterham on time. You should be proud of your organisation – no doubts, no hit and miss, a well oiled outfit.Gato is taking up a large part of our time – it’s like having a mischievous child. He has certainly made himself at home and we have managed to prevent all his escape attempts. He has taken over my favourite chair and has started to attack my grandaughter’s toy dog. Another week to go before we let him out. so he can sort out the pigeons in the garden.

David and Marea

Hi A, I am writing to thank you and your whole company in general for the great treatment we have received from you and to tell you that Byron arrived in perfect condition and is now happy to be with us. Thank you very much for everything.


Hola A, te escribo para agradecerte a ti y a toda la empresa en general el trato que he recibido por vuestra parte y para decirte que byron llego en perfectas condiciones y ahora mismo se encuentra feliz a nuestro lado, muchisimas gracias por todo.

I just wanted to say that I’m very happy with your service. Gwen arrived looking amazing and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you for taking care of her, I know she’s not always easy as sometimes she barks a lot.

Isabel (Gwen travelled from near Porto in Portugal to Cheshire with Animalcouriers)

I would like to thank Animalcouriers for bringing Lawrence safely to us in Switzerland. The service and care you provided were excellent. It was especially good to see Lawrence’s picture on your travel blog – even though my daughter thought she looked like a criminal!! I think that I worried more than Lawrence, as within a few minutes, she was settled and purring. I will always recommend Animalcouriers without any hesitation.


Just a line to say we are all home safe and sound. The cats have had an adventure, as you are no doubt aware (if only they could talk!!) but they are absolutely fine and are settling in well. Despite the bureacratic problems at Bulgaria and the van breaking down, I would not hesitate to recommend Animalcouriers to anyone who is thinking of using them. With every trip from North Cyprus they are gaining experience and I am sure that future trips will be fine. They kept us up to date and reassured throughout the journey and they are absolute professionals, with the welfare of the animals their top priority.It must have been a stressful and testing time for couriers J and M but at no time did they let that distract them from the task in hand. The expression “Keep Calm and Carry On” must have been thought up with Animalcouriers in mind.

When we collected George and Minky from courier J on Monday she seemed totally undaunted by the events of this trip and was looking forward to the next one.

Also, I wanted to say an enormous thank you to all at KAR for their efforts in getting George and Minky relocated. We are so pleased that we were able to travel when we did and are very grateful. Let’s hope that many more dogs and cats from Cyprus are able to be adopted and rehomed with the joint efforts of KAR and Animalcouriers.

Maria, Tim, George and Minky (George and Minky travelled with us from North Cyprus to the UK)

Casey arrived at Philadelphia safely and is now at my daughter Heather’s home in Pennsylvania. Heather has pets of her own (a small dog, three cats, a rabbit and a bird), so Casey will think he’s at the San Diego Zoo.This is just part of Casey’s grand adventure, for when we arrive in Pennsylvania later this month and collect our car at Baltimore a few weeks hence, we will be driving with Casey to our home in Denver, Colorado – about 1,600 miles. There are many pet-friendly motels along the way, and since I will be retired and in no rush to get to work we’ll make a mini-holiday out of it.I want to thank Animalcouriers for all your help and good care of Casey. If I ever have the opportunity to recommend Animalcouriers to other owners travelling with pets I most definitely will.

Thom and Gail (and Casey)

Amy and Zoe are settling in to their new life in North East England very well. They were both rather ‘shell-shocked’ when I collected them from the local cattery and brought them here the day after I moved in, but I let them stretch their legs in their new bigger †garden as soon as we arrived and they both explored very thoroughly before coming indoors with me again. They have been keeping very close to me, sometimes both trying to lie on my lap at the same time on the rare occasions when I sit down for a rest from unpacking boxes, but they are quite relaxed and fit after their travels. Thank you for organising it all, and thanks to the couriers who looked after them so well en route.


Thank you so much for all your help and efficiency coordinating Muga’s trip. I am so thankful for your professionalism and happy with the great way you dealt with everything. I finally have Muga with me, and after having waiting for almost two years you cannot imagine how pleased I am and this is thanks to you all.


You will be pleased to know that Pia came into the house as if she had always lived here and met all family members (dogs and humans) as long-lost friends. The work you did with her has paid off! She has had a bath, nails trimmed, ears cleaned and two big meals (each the size of her daily allowance!). She is filling out already. Thank you for looking after her so well. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends.


I would like to say a tremendous thank you to Animalcouriers for sheer grit and determination! It was such a stressful time but looking back we were so pleased with your service in very difficult circumstances and grateful that the trip happened in the end. Spooky emerged from her travel case in great condition with a shiny healthy coat and acting gently curious about her new surroundings. A credit to the top quality attention and care she was given during the trip I’m sure! She has settled into her new home very well, it is like she has already been here for years and not just a week!

Faye (Spooky flew from Athens to Thessaloniki, where she joined our road trip to the UK)

Thank you for taking such good care of Barry and Mac. I picked them up yesterday, and they were very calm and in good spirits. They wanted lots of scritches and were very sweet. They had obviously been in good hands.


A very big thank you for delivering our Scooby safely. He had a very long journey from Corfu to the UK, through extremely inclement weather conditions. Since Courier R brought him to our home the little man’s tail has not stopped wagging and he has wasted no time in making himself at home! We all would like to thank Animalcouriers for the excellent service you provide. We loved the blogs, looking forward to receiving that email which details their journey, hungrily lapping up any information that came through. We have a warm smile on our faces, knowing our little man has touched the hearts of anyone who has come into contact with him.

Dina & Clara

I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the fantastic Animalcouriers people who helped me out, everybody was so helpful and caring from day one. When I got in touch with you I immediately had the feeling that your company was the right choice. Within just 24 hours of my first email Stella’s place in your van was booked and the countdown started!Courier S was absolutely fantastic, she stayed in touch with me all the way through the journey, and to be honest she started to reassure me even before the journey started, since I was really nervous ó and anxious about travel sickness, about the horrible feeling of being abandoned that Stella could have had, and many other concerns. But courier S was always there to reply back to my emails almost immediately with sweet words, promising lots of cuddles for Stella.Also, through the blog updates, I was able to follow the journey, to have beautiful pictures and to feel that S was getting to know Stella’s nature and that my doggie was very well looked after.

Stella arrived in great shape and just a bit tired, but it’s clear that she was cared for and enjoyed the journey.

Elena, Noemi, Emma & Stella

It’s been a pleasure working with you and you were very accommodating over the last week to get everything arranged. If you ever need someone to provide a recommendation, I am happy to do so.

Jorrit (Jens the cat travelled by air from Norway to London)

My daughter was forced to return to England from Berlin in August. She was very upset because she had to leave her cat Martha behind. She hadn’t realised that you had to wait 6 months but that the rules were changing in January. Anyway it was a very stressful time for all and we were relieved to find Animalcouriers who were very kind and helpful from the very start. Martha is now back safely with my daughter. The intrepid couriers drove for a week through terrible weather and brought the animals back safely. We were kept informed as to their progress. We can’t thank them enough and would highly recommend them.

Judith, John, Julia and Martha

I just wanted to send a massive thank you for the wonderful smooth transfer of Buttons from Paris to the Orkney Islands. Within just 5 days of contacting you everything was organised and he was arriving at his destination! Amazing.Thank you especially to the lovely ladies who undertook the journey – to S for driving through the night to get him back into England as quickly as possible, and for J undertaking the long drive and bravely boarding the North Sea ferry with a gale warning!! I hope the return journey is just as easy.He arrived at Mum and Dads at about 12:30 am and proceeded to bomb around into every room with his tail right upright and ears pricked up! It was very clear how well he had been taken care off while in your hands and was not stressed or unhappy at all. He already seems happier and is getting settled in very quickly although he was not keen on heading out for his first lead walk today in the hail stones! The warmth of the Rayburn was much more appealing. He has spent the morning watching the birds and loves being back in the country.

Your fast and professional service made our decision to move him much easier and has allowed Buttons to be in a much happier place quickly and efficiently.

I would not hesitate to recommend your company.

Thanks from Lisa, Tim and Buttons

Lucy and Penelope have arrived in London safely. I just wanted to say a big thanks to the team at Animalcouriers, I am very impressed with the fantastic services. I strongly recommend the service you provide.

Jessica (Lucy and Penelope travelled from Almunecar in Spain to London with Animalcouriers)

Ulf got here safe and sound. I just wanted to say thanks a lot for all your help and that I was very happy with Animalcouriers!

Billy and Ulf (Animalcouriers transported German Shepherd Dog Ulf from Madrid, Spain to Lyon, France)

Thank you very much for the amazing service provided when delivering our new Chihuahua puppies. The driver was very friendly and the puppies arrived relaxed which helped them settle in very quickly into their new home. Would recommend you to anyone!


I just wanted to express my sincerest thanks for your excellent and thoroughly professional service in bringing Lola from Switzerland to the UK. As you know, Lola is a rather elderly and very nervous dog, but from collection to delivery I had the impression she was in safe and sympathetic hands. I particularly appreciated the regular and reassuring updates received while she was in transit. Lola is settling in well to her new home.


Thank you so much for the care and attention you gave to Brix as she left the UK, and for coordinating the flights, including to Wellington, so well. It was great to have a company that took such good care of our wee girl. We can tell that you know how special animals are to their owners. Thanks again for the wonderful service.

Fiona, Nick and Brix

I would just like to say a big thank you to Animalcouriers and the kennels for looking after Ziggy and the crew for us while we moved. You have done a superb job with Ziggy and it was lovely to see him getting on with couriers L and S when they got here with him. Gizmo and Kato are enjoying bouncing round a much bigger house with loads to explore, and even Podgy the older cat has found a new lease of life, running up and down the stairs and generally enjoying herself. The chinchillas don’t seem too worried about anything and have slotted in to their daily routine as if nothing had ever happened.”Ziggy isn’t an easy dog to deal with but you have all given him some extra confidence with people, and I can’t thank you enough for that. Again thank you all — I will be recommending you to anyone I can.

Sharon and Pete

Thanks so much for bringing Frodo safely over to us. It was a big trip for him, and it’s great to know he was in such good hands. It was a pleasure to deal with all of you, and I will definitely be recommending you should any friends need your services.Frodo seems well, though is naturally ignoring the lovely new dog bed I bought him and is choosing to lie on the floor beside it! Hopefully he’ll settle in quickly to his new home. We’re all delighted to have him here.

Thanks very much for all your help and support over the past month or so guys, really appreciate it as it’s been quite a stressful time for me trying to sort it up until now.You’ve reassured me and made the whole process much easier.


“Thank you” doesn’t seem adequate to express how grateful I am for the fabulous way you looked after me as the expectant mum and Indie during her journey. Indie is settling in with us. She has gone from growling at our small Labrador to ignoring her entirely. I think this is progress and hope they will be best buddies by the end of the week!


Just wanted to say thanks for bringing our little terrapin safe to Barcelona. He’s quite enjoying the sun over here, and ignoring us and acting as nonchalantly as always–which proves he arrived in excellent form!


We cannot thank you enough for all the fab pictures and emails and blogs and tweets — what a great weekend we had from a very nervous Friday until we saw Canico at Olof and Mary’s wonderful home.I cannot believe he has his own room with a real bed and Snoopy murals on the wall — brilliant! Cannot wait until November when you go and collect him. I am now a self-confessed Animalcouriers travel blog addict!!

Celia and I would like to thank you for transporting our family of 15 dogs and three cats from North Cyprus to Chesterfield in the UK by road. The way in which the journey was carried out and your care and attention to our family on route was superb and your obvious love of animals shone through.As you can imagine we were very apprehensive about the journey and our stress and worry levels were at an all time high. However your two or three emails each day along with pictures of our family plus a commentary of the journey made it seem as if we were there with you, well we were with you in thought. We constantly checked the map to see where you were and which route you were taking and of course the nearer you got to the Channel the lower our stress levels dropped.Our family are now in kennels near Chesterfield after their epic journey so once again we thank you for your care, devotion and most of all for taking exemplary care of our family, it was a pleasure to meet you both.

Roger and Celia
