Delivering puppies and kittens to their new owners

The extension of the UK lockdown means we're receiving quite a number of requests to collect puppies and kittens from their breeders and deliver them to their new owners.

All three organisations have approved Animalcouriers to undertake [...]

We developed this cost-effective, same-day service for transporting pets (and often their owners, too) from northern France, Belgium or the Netherlands to the UK via the Channel Tunnel.
