Dog Transport

Travelling long distances can be very tiring, so we decided to make all our cages separate to ensure those who are not fully fledged travellers can find their own quiet space. Each cage has plenty of space and we have sizes for all

Cat Transport

Pussy cats can often find travelling a little more stressful than dogs, so we have a dedicated top floor for our feline guests and cages big enough for 2 bowls, a litter tray and a nice bed.

Comfort Breaks

To ensure our guest get the best treatment whilst on board we stop every 4 hours during daylight hours to let them stretch their legs and we get time to top up water and freshen bedding.

Our Aim is Simple

Purrfect Pet Transport is although a new pet transport company has a team who for the past 11 years dedicated their life to the rescue and welfare of animals in Portugal.  Although the pet transport business is not part of the animal charity in Portugal it is running on the same ethos that will always ensure that the animal’s welfare and comfort are of the utter most importance.  Even for people long distance journeys are tiring, but for animals it is potentially a far more harrowing experience.  Therefore the experience the team at Purrfect Pet Transport wants to ensure your pet has the most trouble and stress free journey.

With the experience of the drivers who have worked with animals for many years, you can be satisfied that your pet is in safe hands. Our vehicle is type 2 approved by DEFRA /APHA and also EU type 2 approved, so we can continue to transport in both the UK and EU with all the correct paperwork. It has a rear compartment that is air conditioned with a fully calibrated climate control unit to ensure your pet’s journey is kept at a pleasant 22° throughout. We are fully insured with £5,000,000 public liability and £25,000 injury to animals cover.

We are proud to be members of Logistics UK. Ensuring we continue to transport your pets in a professional and legal manor

Purrfect Pet Transport took our 2 bunnies from Portugal to the UK. We were worried to travel with the rabbits, but we... found this company on a blog post recommending it. I am very happy with the service. They picked up our bunnies at the scheduled time, they have a camera for them to always keep the animals on check, we have a tracking system to know where the van is, they stop every now and then to take the animals for a walk, give food/water and take some pictures. The fact that they post the pictures of the animals here on Facebook was very helpful for us to feel more relaxed knowing that our bunnies were well. Mark and Janet were very nice and understanding. I most certainly recommend Purrfect Pet Transport. Thank you Mark and Janet for taking good care of our little ones.read more

Mark has transported a few dogs now for me from Portugal to the UK. The great thing they are always available to help... with dealing with the administrative issues and hold you hand through the whole process. The fact that the dogs are always double leashed during walking stops puts your mind at rest with regards to their safety during stops for walks. Having a tracker on their transport vehicle enables you to follow them every step of the way and for those waiting for their furry companions this is quite reassuring. I would highly highly recommend them.read more

Our girls XICA and ROSINHA arrived in the UK on Saturday April the 18th, coming from Portugal. We had the possibility... to always follow our pets through the photos PURRFECT PET TRANSPORT published during the trip, but also through the transport tracking that besides allowing us to always be aware of our girls geographical position, also allowed us to realize the enormous effort made by the two people team driving for several days, 24 hours a day, just making the necessary stops to take care of pets.I recommend PURRFECT PET TRANSPORT for the great service, for its excellent professionalism, but above all for the care with which our pets were treated.CONGRATULATIONS for the excellent work!read more

Mark and Chloe did a sterling job of transporting all their precious charges to the UK as swiftly as possible ( 2 days... to Devon from Central Portugal). They kept them safe and secure, not leaving the van during the night, and making sure the dogs had two leads on during their regular pitstops. The van tracker was reassuring so we could see the journeys progress, as was the photos of their walks. It was amazing to have our rescue dog delivered to our door ( despite the tiny windy lane). Our dog was amazingly resilient to the journey, which seems to be soon forgotten, and has relaxed and settled into his new home straightaway. Thank you for being the final piece in this rescue plan.read more
