  • Who We Are

    We are a UK registered limited company. Since starting holidaying in Turkey in 2006, we soon learned that the street animals of Turkey needed help, we have worked with street animals and charities to ease the suffering where we can ever since, We are a family run business that saw the need for a pet transportation company who knew their way around Turkish laws and culture, also people being able to discuss their baby’s needs, with the actual person who will be transporting their loved pets, this is easily possible for me as i am to and from Turkey each month. Our own pets are part of the family and are more looked after than ourselves!!!

  • When I saw my rescue dog that I wanted to bring back to England one of my main concerns was about the transport. When I was put in touch with Mick & Dot I was immediately reassured throughout the whole process. I was kept completely informed the whole time & the actual transport of all the dogs that were coming by road to their forever homes was something that I can only describe as pure joy to participate in. Everyone that was having their dog or cat brought over had pictures sent, information about their dog or cat, how they were coping with the journey & an eta of arrival time.
    Wonderful service. Wonderful people who obviously care about the animals in their care as if they are their own. Thankyou

  • Absolutely amazing company, have brought 4 dogs & 1 cat back to date with another 2 dogs coming in December 17, their service is brilliant, they help you every step of the way, take all the worry out of your hands and the door to door service is just wonderful. The many updates and pictures throughout the journey were just fantastic to see not just your own pets but the others on the journey reaching their forever home was very emotional. This Company really care about the animals and cannot thank them Enough for taking excellent care of them.

  • We were so worried about our Sam travelling before Mick and Damon picked him up, but as soon as we saw how they approached and handled him we knew those fears were baseless. The constant updates were great and it felt like we were on the journey with him. Cannot recommend Mick enough, your pet will be in good hands.

  • Excellent. Couldn’t wish for better. Travelled from Yorkshire to Turkey. Mick made sure the paperwork was in order before setting off. Went without a hitch. Thought more of the dogs (3 Labradors) than his co-pilot. Thanks Mick can’t recommend you highly enough!

  • Turk-UK stepped into the breach to transport 5 of our dogs when our Bulgarian transporter was refused entry into Turkey. Mick collected the dogs & drove them to the border. Without your help our dogs would not have got to the UK. Thank you so much. Will definitely be using you again.

  • I used Turk-UK Pet Travel to bring my 2 dogs from Turkey to the UK. I was worried as as we’ve never been apart but Mick kept me up to date every day and sent a couple of pictures of my babies. When they got here they did not want to leave Mick so I knew he was a good man.

  • We are proud to have been Mick’s very first clients. He transported our dog and two cats safely and efficiently, always with their best interests at heart. They arrived at their destination as healthy and happy as when they left Turkey. Excellent value for money. I have, and will continue to use Turk-UK Pet Travel.
