ZAWADI & ALAKAY cats to Invercargill, NZ
Hi Lisa and the team at Venture Pet, Shane and I would like to thank your team for the great service provided in moving our cats from Johnsonville to Invercargill.  We will be certainly recommending Venture Pet.We were really happy to receive a phone call to say that Zawadi and Alakay were safely on their flight. Also appreciated being notified that there was a delay to the flight.  This took away any undue stress and meant that we were able to prepare for how this delay may have impacted our very much loved members of our family.  This was especially important as their journey didn’t end in Invercargill but included a 2hr drive to Te Anau. Zawadi and Alakay are in great health and are fully relaxed enjoying their new home in Te Anau.  Thanks again for your part in that. All the best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
Kind Regards,
Wendy and Shane

SANDIE cat Adelaide, SA, Australia to Stratford, NZ

Dear Bruce, A big Thank you to all of you involved in the transport of Sandie to us here in Stratford.
She arrived in excellent condition, both physically and mentally. In times past, she travelled with her older and wiser companion Rosie, but this was her first big journey on her own. It is a great tribute to your care that she arrived in such a relaxed frame of mind. We have been separated for a year, but she recognised us straight away - cats have great memories for people - and she is so happy to have her pets back again.

Best wishes to all of you
Ray, Glenda and Sandie

HAPPY FEET emperor penguin

Dear Lisa, Thank you for helping us to transport Happy Feet!
By providing the Zoo with a crate to move him from his temporary home at the Zoo to the 'Tangaroa', VenturePet ensured he made the journey safely and in comfort. Happy Feet arrived at the Zoo wearing a battered coat, a hungry belly (only weighing 22kg) and far too much sand and sticks in his stomach. During his stay, he enjoyed fresh salmon every day, 500kg of party ice each day and his own entertainment (in the form of mirrors and mobiles).
He became an instant celebrity, a household name and a NZ icon. We are so pleased that you helped us get him back on his feet and on a boat home!
Thank you again for supporting us, it really does make a difference.

Yours sincerely
Wellington Zoo Trust
