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.

Pets travelling by air and homeboarding

Some of the pets we transport by road fly in from abroad. Other pets start their journey in the UK and fly out to destinations like the Cayman Islands and Singapore. In some cases, we offer homeboarding for outbound pets — especially puppies and kittens like Stella, Walnut and Whisper (below), for whom the socialising nature of a home environment is often preferable to a kennels or cattery.
