Reuniting more Ukrainian cats, dogs and a rat with their owners in the UK

We've had the pleasure of reuniting more Ukrainian cats, dogs and a rat with their owners in the UK. At the same time as Nimo the tortoise was travelling with us, our couriers met cats, dogs and a fancy rat called Lili, all heading to the UK to rejoin their families. Here are some of their stories, which remind us all how important our pets are to all of us, how hard it is to be apart from them, and the joy and relief that come with being back together. It's why we're offering free road transport for Ukrainian [...]

Ukrainian dog Neo and his family reach Scotland

We were pleased to help little Ukrainian dog Neo and his family reach Scotland. From Ukraine to France via Germany After leaving Ukraine, Snezhana, her son Danylo and daughter Kira spent two months in Cologne, Germany. They were waiting for permission (a special licence) to bring their little dog Neo into the UK, where their sponsor in Glasgow was ready to welcome them. Once they received Neo's special licence, the family made their way to Calais. So that they didn't have to stay in a refugee camp, their sponsor booked them into the Premier Inn for the night. Danylo [...]

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 [...]

Travelling with pets to and from France, Spain, Monaco, Italy, Malta and Portugal

Our couriers have been on the road, travelling with pets to and from France, Spain, Monaco, Italy, Malta and Portugal.

Dorian and Olive, 2 pets from the UK to France As Paul and his family were close to setting off for France, they realised their pets needed special certificates to be able to leave the UK. That's because both Dorian — an African Grey Parrot, and Olive — a Hermann's Tortoise, are CITES listed. So that the family could head off as planned, Animalcouriers homeboarded [...]

Like English and French Bulldogs, Boxers, Boston Terriers and some other breeds, Pugs are brachycephalic dogs (or brachy dogs). Their shortened snouts and flattish faces [...]
