That should keep it more or less effective regardless of the actual distance ?

Of course, it depend on the distance at which an animal can handle the relay to another, and what is an animal for purpose of the spell... If birds are involved, it may speed it up.
On the other hand, if the next animal in the chain is a earthworm, your message won't be soon delivered...
And what happen if the current carrier dies ?

All in all, not the most reliable of spell, but probably a nice perk for someone with animal control spells or power.
