Puppies galore
transporting puppies and kittens during lockdown2021-03-11T10:37:49+00:00

We’re very sorry but we can’t commit to any collections of puppies and kittens under 12 weeks old at the moment. Please feel free to contact us, but be aware that we won’t respond unless we have space on a trip that matches your window of time.

When a puppy or kitten is ready to leave their breeder for their new home, it’s usually best practice for the owner to collect their new pet themselves. However, national and regional lockdowns may make it difficult or impossible for owners to travel.

We’ve taken advice from Defra, the RSPCA and the Kennel Club, all of whom have approved Animalcouriers to undertake these trips when owners cannot.

As well as prioritising the health and safety of our couriers, we’re following strict animal welfare and Covid-19 guidelines for puppy and kitten transport:

  • We transport each puppy or kitten individually, in a sterile, cleansed pet box or compartment
  • We aim to complete the transport in one day (if the mileage is extreme, we will discuss)
  • We adopt strict social distancing on meeting breeders and handing over pets to their new owners — our couriers expect to stay safe while working
