We've taken advice from Defra, the RSPCA and the Kennel Club, all of whom say what really matters is that young puppies and kittens go to their new homes once they're ready, so that they can be properly socialised into their new families. All three organisations have approved Animalcouriers to undertake [...]

Channel hopping with TaTa, and season’s greetings

Animalcouriers is just back from channel hopping with TaTa, a little dog who started life in Russia and now has a forever home in Scotland. Tata's story prompted us to look back at some of the other pets who've hopped the Channel with us over the past year. What is channel hopping?
