About Transfur Animals

Transfur is an international pet relocation company established in the mid nineties, located in the United Kingdom, a short distance from Gatwick Airport.

Transfur has been relocating pets to and from the UK on behalf of their owners for a period that spans over ten years. To date we have successfully completed over 2500 pet relocations.

Our team of highly experienced pet relocation experts are dedicated to providing you with the highest levels of service so as to ensure that your pet’s move is as easy and as stress free as possible.

Our pet relocation experts are currently or have recently been pet owners and therefore they fully understand the needs of a pet and it’s owner. They appreciate just how much your pets mean to you as beloved members of your family. Transfur’s first priority is always your pet’s welfare from start to finish of the relocation process.

Fraud Warning

Transfur does not sell pets nor does it associate itself with any sale of any animal. Nor does Transfur knowingly become involved in the transportation of animals for laboratory purposes

With the power of the internet there are certain organisations claiming to sell pets to ‘good homes’. In most cases the animals concerned do not exist! These organisations will have ‘lifted’ images and text from websites from reputable pet shippers, such as Transfur, to add credibility to what they are doing. No reputable pet shipper will ask for monies to be transferred by means of Western Union or similar money transfer agencies.

We would recommend that if you are intending to buy a puppy from a breeder via the internet to check with the Kennel Club (www.the-kennel-club.org.uk/services) that the breeder is a registered member and that the pet shipper is a member of IPATA -Independent Pet & Animal Transportation Association. (www.ipata.com)

We would also strongly recommend that wherever possible you visit the breeder to satisfy yourself that they and the animals actually exist.
