YOGI briard & PAWS golden retriever to Harare, Zimbabwe
Dear Lisa, We have collected Paws and Yogi from the airport and it is wonderful to have them. Paws seems really tired and Yogi I think travelled better. Although we did a pre clearance yesterday and checked all formalities they changed what they had told us the day before and kept us running back to the main airport 3 times and only released the dogs to us 2 hours after they arrived!! Anyway dogs have had a swim in the pool, drunk and are relaxing on the veranda here with us.
Thank you again it is wonderful to have them with us

KLOE & AMADOU labrador & sphynx cat to Nairobi, Kenya
Hi Lisa, The flight didn’t arrive until 10pm, but the clearance and vet check went smoothly and quite quickly, so we were back to the ILRI campus around midnight. Both animals seemed very pleased and relieved to see us and each other.  Both kept their crates clean. Thanks for all you and Bruce did to make this long journey as comfortable as possible. Very best regards from Africa to you all. Tim

Just to let u no lilly and phantom arrived safely here last night, we had trouble with customs and were sent home without the cats to my distress as they had lost the original paperwork only to get called back an hour later as they found the paperwork, typical SA.

PHOENIX & JASPER cats to Cape Town, South Africa

Hi Lisa, Just to let you know that Jasper and Pheonix have settled in nicely. Within a couple of hours Jasper was strutting around like he owned the place.  Pheonix stills stays out of sight most of the time, but at night they are both off out hunting and last night brought thier first mouse into the house ( at 1:00 am ) The heat doesn't seem to bother them much and they have adjusted to sharing space with the dog.
Thanks for everything to get them here.

JAZZ & BELLE to Mombasa, Kenya

Hi Lisa, Nairobi was a nightmare of bureaucracy and moving from pillar to post. They had to be stored until sighted, paper work read by the vet (holding fees, payable immediately). Import and handling charges (payable immediately). Sighted by me and moved to internal flight cargo (handling charges payable immediately) Each payment had to be made to the on site bank separately and paper work taken back to each department for the next stage all on three different sites. It took hours. I was assured that they would be on the same flight as me! My flight was over booked and I was placed on the next one - Eventually three hours later we (the cats had also missed that flight) arrived together in Mombasa!! The only consolation was that they had been watered, cleaned and taken care of. We arrived home exhausted, and out of sorts. The cats were thrilled to see Carol, food an a quiet room with nice dark hidey holes to lurk in. Sometime in the subsequent five hours Jazz escaped and completely disappeared. The shrub land is densely wooded and impenetrable, home to snakes, monkeys, bush babies, lizards and feline hating bird life - we were beside ourselves. Searched high and low with the aid of all the locals. That night a delighted and excited Jazz pounced on Carol, whose screams woke me up. They (the cats) are in seventh heaven, fortunately they are both very cautious as well. With us they have resumed their old habits and we bow to their every command - they are not too keen on the food though (no variety of Kenya cat food is as good as the five star NZ kai that they are used to!!!!).
Is it worth it? Well I think so, I guess one has a real responsibility to any animal that one adopts and we could never have found such an amazing home for them as this in NZ (even if we could have found a place for them together). Thank you for your help in facilitating this.

Kind regards

PEPSI cat to Tunis, Tunisia

Hi Lisa, Pepsi has finally arrived at his new home in Tunis. He is a bit tired, but already exploring his new new home. Thank you very much for all your great support and work to get Pepsi to Tunisia. After clearing Immigration and customs at the airport, Markus and I (plus a translator) drove to the Freight Airport to find Pepsi. It was actually quite hilarious as everybody at customs knew about Pepsi. He was the start attraction for them! After we finally found him waiting in his cage for us in one of the warehouses - he seemed to be very happy and quite excited about all the fuzz about him.   After formalities - which took a while - we were finally able to take him home.
I think it is absolutely essential to have someone who can speak either French or Arabic with you at Customs as we would not have been able to do this on our own. There were a lot of discussions amongst the staff there - and we did not understand a word. There was confusion about whether we had to pay anything or not - but at the end they decided to let us take him without any payment. People were very helpful but it was totally chaotic and waiting for a long time in extreme heat was not very pleasant at the time.
Pepsi has already settled in very well and does not show any signs of stress or not being well. The only thing that we are a bit worried about is the Tunisian cat food. It does not seem to be up to standard for him...  At the moment I try to find out whether there are any specialised pet shops anywhere...
It is quite disturbing to see cats all over the place in various states of malnourishment. Never seen so many tiny cats trying to find food in the rubbish and simply trying to survive... Really heartbreaking!
So, who knows - we may end up with more than one cat to bring back...  

Best regards
Markus & Ute

STEFFI fox terrier to Cape Town, South Africa
Hello Lisa,
We have arrived safely in South Africa and would like to thank you for everything that you have done to assist us with the exporting of “steffi”.
She arrived safely but very tired in Cape Town. We had no problems with the airport personnel but as you know it is a very different story from New Zealand.
Thank you for your service and kindness.

TRISTAN kitten to Cape Town, South Africa
Hi Lisa,
Tristan arrived in perfect condition. He had the run of the house when he arrived and then slept in my arms, snug as a baby. This morning he had some steamed Hake and was slowly introduced to the 14 kittens and later to their moms. He growls and hisses at all of them, but it won't be for long. Then he had some Royal Canin pellets , posed for the photo session and is now fast asleep on my bed on Lallie's jersey!  He does not even remember the long  journey!  Thanx once again for everything!!
