Dear Clients,

Hereby we are ready to inform you about the confiscation 24 th February 2021 in

Dusseldorf (Case: 500000-009743-21/5)

All our legal permissions and licenses regarding the operation of our company have
been sent to the german Attorney General's Office and the Dusseldorf Police by our
lawyers as well as we have asked for further information about the ongoing procedures
which information we have not received until now.

The dogs have been transported across Germany to the Amsterdam airport on a route
documented clearly in the TRACIS documents, to be shipped further by air.
We possessed all the necessary permissions, AWB and customs documentation for the
transportation. These all were handed over to the police and our colleagues were fully
cooperative with the authorities during the procedures. With the help of our precise
documentation the authorities could make sure that all our dogs possess all the
neccessary vaccinations, chips, passports and in case of overseas transport official
veterinary certificates. All data were documented in the TRACIS and it was verified that
the dogs were between 15 weeks and 5 years.

All our transport boxes met the requirements of the IATA prescriptions so they were both
adequate for air and road transport. All the boxes had an airing grid on each side. Dogs
were transported in a box which was adequate for air transport, met the size requirement
and was equipped with a bowl for water. Water was offered to them by our professional
colleagues as often as it is prescribed. According to our plans the dogs would have been
waited in a pet hotel to be transported further by air after provided them with food, water,
walk and in a clean box all as it is prescribed, ensured by our professional colleague
who possesses all necessary certifications.

The van used for road transport is 17 m3 including auxiliary heating, air conditioning and
ventillation in the cargo place, which all were working properly ensuring fresh air for all
the dogs during the transport. Contrary to what was stated in the media the dogs were
not in bad condition. We have to emphasize that during the procedures our colleague
asked the authorities to allow to have the engine on so that the above mentioned
systems could work properly and provide proper conditions for the dogs.

The car, documents and the cargo were checked by the Slovakian and German officers
at the borders and they found that everything was all right. Our drivers possesed Covid
antigene tests valid within 24 hours. We are not about to explaining ourselves and we
are making constant legal steps againts untrue statements and defamation.

The police failed to inform the breeders and owners of the dogs about the confiscation,
the procedure and the placement of the dogs; however, all contact information,
departure and landing details of the dogs (booking number and AWB number) were
included in the confiscated documents.

The confiscated dogs have been transported tot he Tierheim Dusseldorf dog shelter.

On contrary what appeared in the media Vierheim Ltd. is not involved in trading but in
road and air transport on behalf of its clients meeting all the requirements and
prescriptions.

Our drivers were no tarrested, as it was stated in the news; nevertheless, nor our
company neither the dog owners were informed about what happened in any forms as it
would be prescribed.

We are terribly sorry and we do not understand how something like this could happen.

We expect an explanation from the german Attorney General's Office. As soon as we
receive more information about the case and the dogs we provide more information.

We would like to ask everybody to share this information so that people do not rely on
the fake information spread by the media but see clearly that there is the other side of
the coin’

With regards, Viernheimi Ltd.

 

Sehr geehrte Kunden!

Unsere Firma, Viernheimi Bt. teilt Ihnen die folgenden Informationen in Bezug auf die
Beschlagnahme in Düsseldorf mit. (Aktenzeichen: 500000-009743-21/5)
Polizei Düsseldorf Pressestelle
Tel: 0211-870 2005, Fax: 0211-870 2008

In Bezug auf die von der Polizei Düsseldorf Pressestelle mitgeteilten und danach von
anderen (deutschen, dann ungarischen) Medien veröffentlichten, unbegründeten
Vorwürfe und unwahren Aussagen übermittelten unsere Anwälte der deutschen
Staatsanwaltschaft und der Polizei Düsseldorf die vollständigen Genehmigungen zur
Bestätigung des rechtliche Betriebs unseres Unternehmens. Außerdem forderten sie
Informationen über das Verfahren an, auf die wir bisher keine Antworte erhielten.

Die Hunde fuhren von Ungarn über Deutschland auf der im TRACIS-Dokument
angegebenen Route zum Flughafen Amsterdam, wo der Lufttransport stattgefunden
hätte.

Wir verfügten über vollständigen Genehmigungen, AWB und Zolldokumente, um den
Transport durchzuführen. Diese wurden während den polizeilichen Maßnahmen der
Behörde übergeben. Unsere Kollegen arbeiteten uneingeschränkt mit den zuständigen
Behörden zusammen. Auf dieser Grundlage konnte die Behörde auch sicherstellen, dass
alle Hunde über die erforderlichen Impfungen, Chips, Pässe und bei Transporten
außerhalb Europas über eine offizielle tierärztliche Untersuchung verfügten. Alle Daten
der Hunde wurden im TRACIS-Dokument aufbewahrt und die Hunde waren zwischen 15
Wochen und 5 Jahre alt, wie es in ihren Dokumenten nachgewiesen sind.

Alle Transportboxen entsprachen den Vorschriften der International Air Transport
Association (IATA), das heißt, dass sie sowohl für den Luft- als auch für den
Straßentransport geeignet sind. Alle Seiten der Transportbox sind mit Lüftungsgittern
ausgestattet. Die Hunde reisten in Kisten der für den Lufttransport vorgeschriebenen
Größe, die mit Trinkschalen ausgestattet waren. Unser qualifizierter Mitarbeiter gab den
Hunden während des Transports in den vorgeschriebenen Zeitabständen zu trinken.
Nach dem Straßentransport hätten die Hunde im Tierhotel auf den Flug gewartet. Sie
wären da gefüttert, getränkt, Gassi geführt und gemäß Vorschriften in sauberen Boxen
gelegt worden. Diese Bedingungen wurden immer von unserem qualifizierten Mitarbeiter
erfüllt, der auch über behördlichen Genehmigungen verfügt.

Das 17-Kubikmeter-Auto, mit dem die Hunde transportiert wurden, verfügte über eine
Standheizung, eine Laderaumklimaanlage und einen Ventilator, die den Vorschriften
entsprachen und allen Hunden während der gesamten Reise frische Luft boten. Im
Gegensatz zu in den Medien gemeldeten Behauptungen waren die Hunde nicht schlapp.

Wir möchten darauf hinweisen, dass unser qualifizierter Kollege während der
Polizeikontrolle die Behörde darum gebeten hat, den Motor laufen zu lassen, damit diese
Systeme ihren Zweck erfüllen und die richtigen Bedingungen für die Tiere schaffen
können.

Das Auto, die Dokumente und die Lieferung wurden auch an der slowakischen und
deutschen Grenze überprüft und alles war in Ordnung. Unsere Fahrer hatten einen
innerhalb von 24 Stunden durchgeführten Covid Antigen-Test. Wir wollen uns nicht
rechtfertigen, weil wir gegen die falschen Aussagen und Verleumdungen rechtliche
Schritte einleiteten.

Die Züchter und Besitzer, deren Hunde wir für den Transport übernahmen, wurden von
der Polizei über die Beschlagnahme, die Maßnahmen und die Unterbringung der Hunde
nicht informiert, obwohl die Angaben zu Besitzer, Züchter, Abflug- und Zielflughafen
(Flugreservierung und AWB-Nummer) auf der beschlagnahmten Liste standen.

Während den Maßnahmen wurden die beschlagnahmten Hunde von der Polizei in das
Tierheim Düsseldorf geliefert.

Im Gegensatz zu den in den Medien veröffentlichten Behauptungen führte Viernheimi Bt.
keine kommerziellen Aktivitäten, sondern im Auftrag unserer Kunden Straßen- oder
Lufttransporte gemäß den Vorschriften durch.
Die Fahrer wurden nicht festgenommen, wie es in den Nachrichten berichtet wurde. Aber
die Firma und die Besitzer der Hunde wurden bisher in keiner Weise darüber informiert,
was gemäß den Vorschriften angefordert worden wäre.

Es tut uns unendlich leid und wir sind fassungslos darüber, was geschehen ist.

Wir warten noch auf eine Antwort des deutschen Gerichts. Sobald wir weitere
Informationen über den Fall und die Hunde haben, werden wir umgehend Informationen
bereitstellen.

Wir möchten alle bitten, diese Informationen mit ihren Freunden zu teilen, damit die
Menschen nicht nur die unbegründeten Anschuldigungen der Medien lesen können,
sondern auch klar erkennen, dass es zwei Seiten einer Medaille gibt!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Viernheimi Bt.

 

Dear customers!

 

The Viernheimi Bt. has been shipping pets on road and with airplane for more than 25 years. We organised air shipping from Budapest at the very beginning and then the same from Frankfurt. If there is no possibility to transport to a specific airport from Budapest we organise the shipment from Prague, Vienna, Frankfurt or Amsterdam according to their destinations.

IF YOU ARE A COSTUMER FROM ABROAD

If you are going to buy a dog from a breeder in Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, Romania please order the shipping through the breeder and settle the shipping information with him/her because the owner of the pet has to fill the shipping documents.

the transportation process if you buy a dog from abroad: 

  • After you have chosen the animal, please contact the breeder and let him/her know that you are going to ship with the Viernheimi Bt.
  • Please pay the price of the animal and the shipping to the owner so she/he can order the shipment from us. The owner has to organise the documents, passport, health and other certifications that needed for the shipping.
  • After these we are going to send you all the information about the shipping (airway bill number, flight number, local time of arrival)
  • Then you have to contact the airline company (we will let you know about the phone number), tell them and the airway bill number and that you will pick up the dog at the airport. There can be cases when the airline company contacts you on the phone number you have given.
  • At the end you will pick up the dog at the given airport in the given time.

Air shipping for dogs, cats and other pets to any international airport on the world

Our company organises shipments  for dogs, cats and other pets from Hungary to any international available airport on the world. There are hundreds of airports available for this purpose.

We organise the shipments mostly with KLM, Aeroflot, LOT, Czezh, British, Lufthansa and Emirates airlines. Also from Vienna and Prague we can ship with Delta and United airlines so this is how we can cover almost every available country on the world.

An important note that not all airplanes can transport live animal because the cargo has to be air conditioned and pressure balanced. An airline company cannot give live animal to another airline company so sometimes transfer is not a possibility and there are some airports that are not available in other ways.

We look forward to your request with our reasonable prices on our price quote request page.  If you have any questions please call us on the +36 30 9470 049 phone number

 

 

Air shipping regulations for dogs and cats

  • To USA the puppies can fly at the age of 10 weeks, but snub nosed dogs can be shipped right after the rabies vaccination that was given at the age of 3 months (not 12 weeks!).

  • For country rules that are different from these above please check here

 

 

The transportation process

When you let us know about the details of the dog (type, age, weight, size etc. ) plus the country and the airport you want to ship to, we are going to give you a price quote that includes the whole shipping price: shipping on road – from the arranged picking up place – air shipping, organising price, costum price and the shipping box. (We provide the box and after picking up the dog it stays with the consignee). 
If the box size is not right it is possible that the airline company refuses to do the transport or only does it with bigger box, which is an additional cost. Therefore please make sure you give the right measurements. Use our box size calculator for the size of the box you need.

To order a shipment the following data must be provided:  Data of sender (name, post address, phone number, e-mail address), the destination airport and the data of consignee (name, post address – it can’t be post office box- , phone number, e-mail address).

Some airlines like Emirates and Lufthansa calls the consignee in the destination country, but for KLM and Aeroflot the consignee has to call the airline to prove that everything is all right about the process and picking up the dog. That is why it is important to write the person who is picking up the dog on the ordering form.

After ordering the shipment we will confirm it to you  and the consignee in 2 working days. This confirmation shows the airway bill number, the flight number and the local arrival time.  On the day of the air shipping we pick up the dog (or other pet) at the agreed place in the agreed time and bring it to the airport from where we do the shipping on that day.

When we pick up the dog we need to get the valid passport with all the vaccinations and health certificates required by the rules and also the price of the shipping. We offer the price in Euro because of the fluctuations in exchange rates in Huf. The shipping price has to be paid in Huf on the actual selling rate of MNB on that day.
