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 15 years dedicated their life to the rescue and welfare of animals in Portugal.  Although the pet transport business was 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, qualified in animal first aid and animal welfare, you can be satisfied that your pet is in safe hands. Our vehicles are type 2 approved by DEFRA /APHA and also hold EU type 2 approval, 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 18-22 degrees throughout and with parking heaters for those cold nights. 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

We had our 8 year old rescued cross beagle, Lady, transported from central Portugal to near Edinburgh, Scotland in January '23. By all accounts from the photos and videos posted by Mick, it was clear to see Lady was enjoying her road trip! I can highly recommend Purrfect Pet Transport if you require to use such a service anytime.

In 2020 Purrfect Pet transport transported 2 of my dogs from Portugal to the UK. I can only say that I couldn't have chosen a better pet transport. They collected Cara and Charlie from the kennel in Setubal, dealt with all the paperwork and delivered them safely to us in Wiltshire. I was so impressed with the communication beforehand and during the transport. A couple of months later they transported our Doberman Riva, who was with my elderly parents-in-law near Leiria. Riva was at the time a very anxious dog, but that was no problem for them at all. We cannot thank you enough, as with the lockdowns at the time, we were so anxious about possible problems. You are true animal lovers and I cannot recommend you enough.

I have used Purrfect pet transport several times and am always really happy with the service:
- Great communication throughout the trip (including GPS tracking and photo updates)
- Caring employees that put your pets first. It’s great to see the dogs being walked several times per day and the trip is still completed very quickly, takes about 1.5 days from UK to Portugal. My dog always gets excited when he sees Mark arrive to pick him up!
- Very reasonable prices compared to other providers
I wouldn’t use anyone else for my dog 😊 he always arrives home happy and relaxed.

It’s hard to find the words to say how fantastic Mark and the Purrfect pet team are. I would highly recommend them. My small nervous dog was transported from Spain to North of England and was well cared for happy and we had updates all the way. Mark really cares for all the animals and does such a great job. I won’t hesitate to use again and can highly recommend to anyone needing this service. Thank you so much for looking after our little girl.

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.

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.

Simply perfect. Our puppy is only just eight months. We were slightly worried about the trip but when Mark collected him that all went away. A real loving dog person. Fred arrived at our cottage in UK happy and well. He’s now booked to return to Portugal in the next three weeks. Have no concerns he’s in the best loving hands. Brilliant service.

We were recommended by the shelter to use Purrfect Per Transport to bring our beloved Toby from Portugal to the UK. The communication from Mark was excellent, we loved the tracking that was available and when Toby arrived you could tell they had looked after him really well as he wasn’t stressed despite it being such a long journey. Thank you for taking care of him.

Excellent service. They transported my dog from UK to Spain in September during very difficult times for travel for pets because of Cov8d rules. PPT knew precisely the correct documentation tequired, whereas even my Vet didn't. They provided regular updates throughout the trip, so I felt very reassured. Our beloved dog arrived a few days later. Ckesky very well cared for. 5 star company

I Can’t recommend Mark and Janet enough. Such care and great communications before and during the trip. Mark ferried my 4 dogs from Uk to Portugal - all were adopted and had not travelled beyond locally in years. He kept them all happy and safe and they settled into their new home here seamlessly. Have been so impressed that I used them again for a newly adopted dog from Spain to us in PT.

I have just adopted a lovely boy dog from Portugal. He was transported back to the UK by this wonderful company. They explained exactly what I needed to organise prior to him leaving, they went through the process step by step. I was able to track his journey and they kept me well informed with pictures of how he was getting on. He arrived in very good spirits and it was evident that he had been well cared for. Thank you Janet and Mark I would not hesitate to you use again and recommend you to others. A very professional friendly and dog loving company thank you so much xxx

Mark and Janet took my little Zara from the UK to Portugal. They post pictures of your pet and you can see on GPS their location at any time! I felt very reassured during the whole journey.
Zara can be a bit fussy sometimes and she still was very well looked after! She’s now getting used to her new home and I can’t wait to meet her there ☺️
Thank you so much for your amazing job!! 😸🐶

Mark & Janet are the ideal people to trust your pet with. Our dog was collected in Hitchin and safely delivered to us in Caldas da Rainha in Portugal. He was as happy & full of bounce as always. We will certainly use them again if ever the need arises.

PT-UK
Brought my dog in three days, second day they were already in the UK. GPS live tracking and fb posts made it possible to know where and how my dog was. I could see where they stopped for breaks and sleep.

Medication wasn't an issue as well, as she takes medication for incontinence. Very difficult dog to handle with strangers but it all went well.
