Ukrainian pet reunions in the UK since March

As Christmas approaches, we thought it was time to look back at some of the happy Ukrainian pet reunions in the UK we've had the privilege of being part of since March of this year. For Ukrainian families displaced by the Russian invasion and able to enter the UK, the UK government made it possible for their pets to come too. In many cases, family pets were left in good hands in Poland, Germany or other EU countries, awaiting the relevant paperwork while their owners went on ahead. Animalcouriers then collected the pets and transported them to the UK [...]

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 [...]
