Sarah Richardson launched her Petpals operation in September 2003 after 18 years working in the mail order business, deciding to change career to combine her love of animals and the great outdoors.
Over the years Sarah has kept cats, fish and a pony and is currently the proud owner of Pickle, a working cocker spaniel. Pickle was a ‘Hearing Dogs for Deaf People’ ‘fallen angel’ who couldn’t complete his training due to his gluten intolerance. Sarah has recently been one of the sponsors of Edith, a rescue Shih Tzu puppy who has now qualified and been placed with her new deaf owner.
Pickle loves having 'friends' to stay, and showing them his favourite walks. Home boarding is an incredibly popular service, a real alternative to kennels and we would always recommend making early enquiries, especially for the popular school holidays to avoid disappointment. We are always on the look out for new host families for our clients dogs, so email us if you know anyone who might be suitable.
At Petpals we are fully trained and insured. Our pet care services are flexible and can be tailored to your pet's individual needs. Whether it's a puppy or older dog we like to help with the socialisation and training of your pet by finding them a few suitable 'friends' to go out with. This way they get more out of their time with us and often end up having a longer visit as they're so busy having fun!
We have many cat and small pet customers who appreciate being able to leave their pets at home in familiar surroundings, or even their own fruit bowl! (see picture of Gizmo above). A number of our cats are, unfortunately, diabetic, so we are used to giving regular injections.
To give you peace of mind that you will always receive continuous service, we operate with a small, dedicated team which enables us to cover any staff illness and holidays. Claire, Charlotte, Ian, Jane and Jayne are all dedicated animal lovers, who between them have owned cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, gerbils, guinea pigs and even a fat-tailed gecko and tarantula!
Please feel free to have a look at our testimonials page.
