After spending the night near Narbonne, Animalcouriers crossed the border into Spain where our first stop was to deliver gorgeous ginger tabby cat Baby in Barcelona. Then it was on to Madrid to reunite chatty grey cat Byron and Basset Hound Pluto with their respective owners. In Arroyo de la Miel, we reunited Clare with her beloved black-and-white cat Mr Bojangles. On the Mijas Costa, there was much excitement and dashing about when we delivered Westies PJ and Belle to their family. Grandma Ann, who'd seen them off in Aberdeenshire, was on hand to complete the circle. There was the [...]

Heading to France and Spain with Pluto, Scrumpy, Sirius, Throttle, Mr Bojangles, Byron, Baby, Poppy, Billie, Belle, PJ and Arfa
Animalcouriers set off from the UK with pets on board who are heading to France and Spain. In addition to Belle and PJ, collected in Scotland a couple of days ago, we were joined by a fabulous cast of characters. Basset Hound Pluto from London is on his way to Madrid to rejoin his family who've moved back to Spain. He's a very determined chap, and very strong. You don't so much take him for a walk as simply try to steer him in the general direction you want him to go! Marvellously monikered feline trio Scrumpy, Sirius and Throttle [...]
Yoda and Bohemia have become inseparable friends on this Animalcouriers trip. They do everything together and particularly enjoy their morning walks. When Byron's out, he takes every opportunity to play — whether that's chasing fir cones or rolling around on freshly watered grass. Meanwhile, at a more sedate pace, Topsy tucks into his breakfast. Best mates Bohemia and Yoda in Porto Byron prepares to dive Gotcha! Lettuce for Topsy
Animalcouriers collected Byron in Cordoba yesterday, where he's been staying with his owner's mother. She was sad to see him go, but glad to know he's on his way back to his dad. Byron's new home will be in Bristol, where we're sure he'll enjoy the Somerset summer. Byron One of the nosy neighbours watching us, thinking of joining our adventure perhaps? Another keen observer of all our comings and goings yesterday
Animalcouriers travelled back in the UK with pets from Portugal, Spain and France. We had two vans on the road, so that we could collect pets from all over Spain as well as Portugal. We met up in France for the last leg of the journey home, with two degus and a hamster on board in addition to our more usual canine and feline passengers. Lily We collected six-month-old Persian kitten Lily from Anna just south of Lisbon in Portugal. Lovely Lily travelled with us to Beatriz in London. Anna was all ready for us with Lily in her [...]
All photographs on this site are of our animal clients. All countries mentioned are destinations to which we have delivered animals. All species mentioned, we have handled. Cannot recommend Animalcouriers enough — they were brilliant. Richard brought our Peggy to Spain from the UK. She arrived safe and happy, and Richard looked after her so well. Having lost our other dog to bone cancer 3 weeks before, we were so upset to hand our Peggy over, and so worried about how she would be on her own, but Richard did a brilliant job. Massive thank you to the [...]
This feline trio reached their new South of France home yesterday, where they were warmly greeted by their owners, John and Janet. A special room has been set up for the cats to start their acclimatisation to their new environment. Next, they'll have the run of the house, and finally, once they're fully settled in, the great outdoors will be theirs to explore. And what a lovely outdoors it is. The family has moved to a beautiful valley near Marseille where John and Janet plan to turn a lifelong hobby into a business — running gites alongside an astronomy centre. [...]
We had a lovely walk yesterday evening in Barcelona with our charges. Gwen is the cuddliest, softest little dog who loves to have you sit on the grass with her for some one-to-one time. After a good romp there's nothing Yoda likes better than a roll around on the cool grass. Bohemia will do almost anything for a biscuit — even pose for a photo! Kind and gentle, Norti loves her food, walks and cuddles, and wins hearts wherever she goes. Byron just smiles and smiles and smiles Watching [...]
