News of recent passengers, and Christmas comes early for Mal

Ian, Jackie and Mal have all been in touch recently with updates about their dogs and cats who travelled with Animalcouriers on recent road trips.

But first, here’s a reunion between tortoise Max, who travelled with us from Zurich, and homeboarded with us until Jim and his son James could call in and collect him.

Dexter was a holiday romance, adopted by Ian and Pat on the Greek island of Lesvos. Rebecca from Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions took care of Dexter until he could travel to the UK.

Life continues to be a hard struggle for Dexter — not! says Ian. Dexter is now part of a three-dog household, living with Nell and Honor.

Dogs Tina and Fizzy, and cats Panda and Chiki, travelled with us from Gandesa in Spain to join Jackie at the new family home in Cumbria. Jackie wrote to say:

“I would like to thank you and your great team for the safe arrival of my family. The gang are settling in beautifully. Tina has claimed the chair, Panda and Chiki the settee, with a limited amount of space for Fizzy at one end and me at the other. Tina and Fizzy also soon established their claim to the bed.”

And finally, good news from Mal, whose 22 cats and two birds relocated with Animalcouriers from the Lot-et-Garonne in France to Lincolnshire. When we delivered Mal’s pets in early November, the cattery was just being finished off. Unfortunately, a small part of the roof wasn’t completely secure, and Brandy managed to squeeze his way out and made a run for it.

Mal went looking for Brandy in the fields every day, and set a trap in the woods as someone told her they’d seen him there. Finally, a few night ago, Mal heard a loud meow in her garden, and went outside to look. Mal picks up the story:

“I went outside and kept hearing the meowing sound, went around the garden for half an hour, calling Brandy, but thought 100 to 1 against it would actually be him. Then I got a look and it was Brandy! It took another 15 minutes to get near him and grab him. He struggled, but I held on for dear life as I wasn’t losing him again. He was thin and tired but when I put him in the outside run, he still tried to climb up the wire. I got him down, wrapped him in a blanked, then gave him a little food. The next day I wormed him and treated him for fleas before putting him back in with Soda. I’m so happy to have him back. It’s been seven weeks and I feel so much better now he is back.”

Brandy safely home — and here are a few of his 21 feline chums…

And that just leaves us to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and all the very best for 2016 — thank you for keeping us such great company on the road!

We’re planning a bit of fun in the new year so please be sure to keep an eye out for our next post…

Bespoke trips for Max and Luka; Molly; Barney, Rowan and Tish; and news of another Luka and Poppy

When Alison and Victor relocated to the Dutch city of The Hague from the very top of Scotland, near Thurso, they asked Animalcouriers to help move Max and Luka, their two German Short-haired Pointers. We took the dogs to kennels initially, where they stayed for a few days until the family arrived in The Hague, at which point we delivered Max and Luka to a huge welcome.

In the midst of all the packing and general hubbub of the move, the two dogs simply spooned and slept

Not all airlines will transport pets and, even when they do, it can be quite an expensive business, what with travel boxes, cargo charges and so on. As a result, we’re getting more and more enquiries from pet-owners in Europe for bespoke trips, that fit precisely with their own travel plans.

Little Molly travelled with us in this way from Madrid to Scotland. Owner Tom wrote to say:

“Molly has settled in very well. She has had lots of walks and is happy to be back with her original pack. I want to thank you and all the team for the fantastic service you provided. From the first moment I spoke to you on the phone I felt reassured and, at such a stressful time for me, you put me at ease and made me realise that bringing Molly back was not an insurmountable task. Everyone in the office was incredibly helpful and couriers Rickie and Dave were so nice — it’s clear Molly had got on really with them.”

There was a tearful reunion when Molly was delivered to Tom. It's at times like this when we know a road trip is a good way for dogs to travel. Molly jumped all over Tom and dashed about — her and Tom's happiness was very catching.

Gorgeous cat Luka travelled with us last month from the south of France, and his owner Blaithin has sent us news about how he’s getting on:

“I want to thank you once again for looking after my little darling and for your constant reassurance on how he was doing. Luka hid for two weeks when we arrived but we just left him and loved him everyday, fed and watered him also. He was drinking but eating little. Now he is back to normal and is going out by himself and loving the garden as it is very large. He will use the trees as a scratching post and loves to climb them. Already he is sniffing out a nest of mice in the garden. He has found out that English mice run faster than French mice, hee hee!”

And finally, news and stunning photos of pocket-sized Staffie Poppy, who travelled from France to Portugal with us last month. Carol wrote to say:

“Thank you and your team so much for taking Poppy, she is with her dad and very happy.”

Tales from the skies: pets fly to Indonesia, South Africa, Bermuda, New Zealand and Australia

While couriers J, M and others have been transporting pets around Europe over the past few months, other members of the Animalcouriers team have been busy organising air freight for pets travelling somewhat further afield. Here are just a few of their stories.

Tilly, a very entertaining young King Charles Cavalier, home boarded with Animalcouriers while she waited for her Indonesian paperwork to be ready. She was a very engaging young lady and we were rather sorry to see her go!

Globe-trotting Rhea lived in the Caribbean before moving to the UK for a while. Her latest trip was with Virgin to Johannesburg to rejoin her South African owner, who had travelled on ahead to get everything ready for her arrival.

Lovely Molly, a Spanish Water dog joined her new family in Bermuda. Molly was bred by Rita at Zulusky, who we first met a couple of years ago when we drove Curiosa from Spain to Lincolnshire.

Four pets travelled to New Zealand. Handsome hound Louis flew with Air New Zealand to Auckland and spent his 10-day quarantine at Pethaven; while fluffy tabby cat Taffy opted to fly with Qantas and spend his quarantine at QPS.

Meanwhile, cat Marmalade and canine chum Libby flew with Emirates to Christchurch and stayed at Canterbury Quarantine Kennels. Their owner had gone on ahead to New Zealand, so relied on good friends, as well as Sara, a very helpful vet in Leeds and Animalcouriers to organise all the vet visits and paperwork.

We were delighted to catch up again with black cat Clark, who belongs to Sabra. We first met Clark when we moved him to northern Spain, then we brought him back to the UK after Sabra had completed the Spain-based element of her language course. Sabra and family flew home to Seattle earlier in the summer, where Clark has now joined them. Sabra wrote to say:

“How can we thank you for your wonderful care of Clark? He arrived safely and is busy investigating his new/old home. Many thanks to you all.”

Jack Russell Jack travelled from France to the UK with us earlier the year so that his Australian paperwork could be completed. He recently flew to Melbourne and has now been reunited with his owner Frank, who moved to Adelaide to be nearer his grandchildren. Jack emailed us on his arrival, saying:

“South of France to south Australia!!! Took care of me all the way, a good job well done. My master also tells me you kept him up to date as to my whereabouts and health frequently. Have no hesitation in recommending your team to anyone. Thanks a million.”

Animalcouriers also provides a collection service for pets arriving at UK airports, and we recently collected Nelson who arrived from Australia. We also organised flights from Faro in Portugal to Manchester for Betty and Minnie, where we collected them and drove them the rest of the way to their new home in Aberdeen. Kelly told us: “Just wanted to say the girls are doing very well, slept most of the day today but happy to be home.”

And finally, you may remember the story of Honi, whose owner Carla ran into difficulties getting Honi from the UK to Ecuador, and asked Animalcouriers for help. Carla recently published Honi’s story on her blog, along with that of Honi’s canine sister Poppy. They really are a pair of globe-trotting hounds!

UK reunions for Napoleao, Cuca, Kathy, Neska, Charlie, Galatzo and Melody; and news of Danae

Couriers J and M had quite a time of it when they reached the northern French port of Calais. Fencing was being erected and there was a strong police presence to hold back a flow of migrants, reminding us about all the unhappy places in the world people are fleeing from. Then, on checking in, we discovered there was a strike at the port, so it was a three-hour wait before we could set sail.

Eventually we made it back to our Surrey base, where a delighted Teresa was waiting to collect her cats Napoleao and Cuca who had travelled from Porto. “We would have waited all night!” they told us. So wonderful how much people care about their pets, and what a lovely contrast to the rather trying time we’d had at Calais.

The following day there were more ecstatic scenes when Ana and George arrived to collect their dogs Kathy and Neska, who travelled with us from Granada. The whole family is moving to Bristol.

Meanwhile courier M headed north to deliver more pets to their waiting owners. Along with African Grey Charlie and young wolfdog Galatzo who travelled with us from Spain, he also had Melody on board. This lovely black-and-white Pointer was flown to the UK by the Friends of Filozoikos, who support the Filozoikos shelter in Athens which does such a great job with stray and abandoned dogs. Melody was fostered by Gabby, who brought her to us in Surrey ready to travel up to Ayrshire in Scotland to her new home with Sheila.

We also recently received news of another Filozoikos rescue — Danae, who had an eye operation and was then adopted by Erica and Hans in the Netherlands. Erica wrote to Martha at Filozoikos to tell her how well Danae is getting on:

“We are so happy we have Danae. She is listening very good, she likes to be cuddled (can sit beside us for minutes long to be cuddled). And she very much likes to play with other dogs. That is, she likes other dogs to run after her — there are only a few dogs who can run as fast as she can. We want to thank you and Kiki again for giving us Danae, we enjoy every day with her.”

News of clever Bandit, who was adopted by Christine

Last year we met a very clever black-and-white cat in Malaga. A dead ringer for Christine’s cat Whiskey, Bandit managed to get himself scooped up with Christine’s other cats and given a microchip and passport in Whiskey’s name, ready to travel to the UK.

Fortunately the mistake was quickly discovered and the real Whiskey could be collected in time. Christine, waiting for her cats to join her in the UK, was so impressed by stray cat Bandit’s subterfuge that she immediately adopted him. We transported him a few weeks later once his passport was valid for the UK.

Christine got in touch with us recently with news of all her pets:

“I am pleased to tell you that they have all settled in. Molli adores me, just as she always used to, Cookie want to possess me, but Bandit and Whiskey come to me to say ‘hello’, have a stroke then go off to their separate places in the house. They all have their favourite chair, and you wouldn’t know I had five cats unless you are there at breakfast time.

Bandit (I’ve renamed him Mongo after Montgo the mountain where he lived) gave me a real scare when he first arrived as he escaped from the dining room overnight and disappeared for a week but he suddenly turned up for breakfast and hasn’t gone far since. He gets on very well with my little dog and they play together.

I am still very grateful for all you did to get my cats (plus one) back to me. I often recount the story of Bandit which people find fascinating and funny.”

Christine also mentioned she’s planning to move back to Spain and will of course be taking her pets with her. This time there will be another (planned) new addition — a baby tortoise!

Jake, Bob, Minnie and Polly swap snowy Doncaster for sunny Australia

When Debra and family decided to head home to Australia, they were definitely not leaving their two dogs and two cats behind in the UK. These much loved pets are somewhat senior travellers — the cats, Polly and Minnie, are 15 and 14 years old respectively; and Bob the dog is also 14. Jake the terrier is quite the baby of the bunch at just seven years old.

Animalcouriers arranged their flights and the pets spent 10 days in quarantine at Eastern Creek, Sydney. From there they flew via Adelaide to Port Lincoln in South Australia, where the family has relocated.

Debra sent some photos of the pets at home and told us:

“All four animals arrived safe and well. They are all settling in to their new home. I cried when I saw them! Thank you so much for all your great planning and organising. You did a wonderful job and I will definitely recommend you. It is amazing to think they travelled from the other side of the world.”

A great way to start the new year — news about recent passengers Etti, Rudi, Josephine, Toddy and Maisie

Animalcouriers wishes all our friends and followers a very happy and healthy 2015. To kick off the new year in the best way, we’d like to share updates about some of our recent passengers.

Rescue dog Etti (short for Loretta) travelled with us just last month from the Almeria region of Spain to join David and Victoria. David wrote to say:

“Thank you very much for getting our sweet pooch to us in time for Christmas. She’s such a joy. We have been very lucky with her, considering we just went on a ‘hunch’. As you can see, she is already very much at home, and we will soon wonder how we ever lived without her.”

We also received Christmas greetings from Rudi, a clever young dog who attached herself to Simon and family while they were on holiday in Portugal. Rudi travelled with us in September to join her new family and has clearly got her paws firmly under the table.

Edward sent us news about beautiful black cat Josephine, who’s swapped life in London for a more bucolic time in the Burgundy region of France. She travelled with us in November, has settled in well and seems happier in France than she was in London. “I think it is the lack of competition for territory here (lots of land, very few cats),” says Edward.

“Thank you for all your care, and the trouble you took with Josephine. It really is appreciated. Sometimes other people do not understand how important a loved pet is, but Animalcouriers showed a level of empathy and understanding rarely encountered.”

Shortly before Christmas we arranged flights for Toddy to New Zealand, and Maisie to the United Arab Emirates.

Toddy’s journey started in Malaga, in Spain. His owner Martin had to go on ahead and left Toddy with friends until he was ready to meet New Zealand’s stringent entry requirements. Courier A, who’s based in Spain, helped to see Toddy through vet visits and final paperwork. Once everything was ready, Toddy flew to Gatwick airport, where Animalcouriers collected him and drove him to Heathrow airport in our quarantine van, to prevent his Spanish export paperwork from being invalidated. The following day he jetted off to New Zealand to rejoin Martin.

Lively Goldendoodle Maisie homeboarded with Animalcouriers before flying off to the UAE to meet Annie and the rest of her new family. Annie contacted us about pet shipping services before she found Maisie, saying they felt they had a long search ahead. But just days later they found Maisie! Her previous owner had fallen ill and was sadly unable to keep her, so her breeder had taken her back. That’s when Annie called, and the rest, as they say, is history. Annie tells us:

“Maisie is just wonderful (but I do feel like at times I have an energetic toddler in the house!) and doesn’t seem fazed by anything or anyone. She really has come here with all guns blazing. She has the most gorgeous gentle temperament and she is getting so much attention and so many cuddles from the family which is great. When I see her just lying casually around it feels like she has been with us for much longer than she has — a good sign, I think. Thank you again for all your help and care.”

News of George in the UK; and Lola, Millie and Alfie in Portugal

Animalcouriers recently received news about some of our recent passengers.

Handsome tabby cat George travelled with us from the Limousin in France. We collected him from Barbara at her cattery and delivered him to his owner Jenny in the UK. Jenny tells us:

“George is safely back home and fast asleep on my bed. This would not have been possible without Barbara from Pension pour Chats in Rochechouart who has cared for and loved George as if he belonged to her, and Animalcouriers who were recommended by Barbara. Courier J has been amazing too and kept me up to date with George ‘s journey as she knew that I was worried. Now I have to teach George English!!!”

Meanwhile lovely trio Spanish Water Dog Lola, Jack Russell Millie, and Maine Coone Alfie, who travelled with us from the UK, have settled into their new life in Portugal. Their owners, David and Jan, wrote to say:

“Just like to thank you and the team again, in particular couriers S and L, for looking after our gang so well. Thought that you may like a few pics of them in their new environment which they are absolutely loving!”

Kensington and Chelsea girls: Snowflake Twinkle Toes and Annie May

While couriers J and M were travelling through southern Europe, courier S had the pleasure of collecting Toy Poodle puppy Snowflake Twinkle Toes from her breeder in Peterborough.

A real bundle of sunshine on a grey winter’s day, this cute little girl was on her way to her loving new home in Kensington. She travelled brilliantly and received a very warm welcome indeed at her London home.

We also received news of Annie May, a stray dog rescued in Greece by Sara and transported to the UK by Animalcouriers. Sara tells us:

“Thought you might like to know that Annie and her winning ways mean she is now officially and permanently a Chelsea girl! She has settled in like the lady of the manor. Two weeks to the day she was found, hours from death, she was sitting on the front seat of my car being ferried around Chelsea and all but waving at the crowds!”

Happy reunions for Suzana, Lucy, Moss, Soggy, Anakin and Hollywood

Little Suzana was a passenger on our most recent trip from Greece to the UK. Her owner, Angeliki wrote to tell us how happy she is to be reunited with her dog:

“Thank you for bringing Suzana to Renfrew, she is really happy. We had three months apart and after a two-hour walk I am sure Suzana loves her new home. Please thank courier M for helping her to adjust to the trip.”

Lucy, from North Cyprus, was rehomed to Catherine in the UK by Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR). Catherine describes her as being ‘now a bone fide UK resident’. Lucy flew in from Istanbul to Heathrow, and Catherine takes up her story:

“Lucy was very trembly and worried but she walked out. I got a lukewarm reception but wasn’t expecting any more. She was very quiet on the journey home and I managed to keep a monologue up for an hour whilst trying to reassure her! She had a lovely supper, a roll in the wet grass and a huge welcome for Mummy and John — she totally remembered them. We had a quiet first night. I left the kitchen door into the garden open so that she didn’t feel trapped, but not a squeak from her. Up bright and early to beat the other dogs into the fields.  She had a run, a poo, several widdles, a bark at the horses and a lovely roll in fox poo! All this excitement followed by an enormous breakfast, gone in a gobble — I think we are going to be fine. All that worry for nothing.”

We also heard about the safe arrival a number of recent passengers who’ve taken long flights. Moss, a young Golden Retriever, flew with Air New Zealand to Christchurch. After 10 days at Canterbury Quarantine Kennels, he moved a little further south to Dunedin to rejoin his owners. Jacky told us:

“We have Moss at home and all is weIl. Thanks for everything, you were such a massive help throughout. Please find attached a picture of Moss on his new beach, he’s loving it here!”

Soggy, an older Golden Retriever, swapped Paris for Australia, via a stay in Scotland. Judith wrote to say:

“Soggy arrived and we are very grateful that you put so much effort in to manage the whole process. With all the intercountry and people interfaces I could imagine it was trying at times. Good job we had you.”

We also received an update from Dave, whose Siberian Husky Anakin relocated with him to New Zealand:

“Here are a couple of pretty good photos from Anakin’s recent outings, now that spring is upon us. Thanks again for all of your help, and if we ever hear of someone doing the same thing as us, we will be happy to provide a recommendation.”

Meanwhile, couriers J and R enjoyed the company of Hollywood, who homeboarded with us while waiting to catch his flight to Los Angeles. He was on his way back to… Hollywood!, as he splits his time between there and in St Leonard’s in the UK.
