We've had the pleasure of reuniting more Ukrainian cats, dogs and a rat with their owners in the UK.

Ukrainian dog Neo and his family reach Scotland

We were pleased to help little Ukrainian dog Neo and his family reach Scotland.

Reuniting Cheeta with his Ukrainian family in the UK

Animalcouriers recently helped with reuniting Cheeta with his Ukrainian family in the UK. This dear little dog and his family had a rather upsetting experience before Animalcouriers got involved, but we're pleased to say there was a happy ending. Cheeta and his family initially travelled with an unscrupulous Polish pet transporter who took no notice of the government rules on Ukrainian pets entering the UK. He popped the family and Cheeta into his van for one of his scheduled trips (the other pets complied with the rules for their journeys), and charged them quite a hefty sum for the [...]

Red kite chicks fly from England to Spain

Animalcouriers is very proud to be involved in a conservation project to fly red kite chicks from England to Spain. A project that started 30 years ago It's a wonderful and extraordinary story that started more than 30 years ago. At that time, young red kites were brought from thriving populations in Spain to England, to boost the British numbers which had declined to just 42 breeding pairs. That project was so successful — the most successful raptor restoration project in Europe — that there are now more than 6,000 breeding pairs in Britain. So now that Spanish numbers have [...]
