Franchise Opportunities

Have you always wanted to work with animals?  Animals at Home is the UK's National Pet Care Franchise offering Pet Franchises throughout the UK.  If you are looking for a Pet Sitting Franchise, a Dog Walking Franchise or an Animal related business then Animals at Home could be the franchise for you.  The concept of Animals at Home is based on the experience of Pet Owners and Pet Lovers alike.  We offer you the opportunity to run your own business with the support of the Animals at Home team.

There is a real requirement for an Animal Ambulance/ Pet Taxi in many areas. This is used as part of the main business and did provide an essential service during COVID:19. The ambulance is equipped to transport pets safely, currently supporting the charity's StreetVets and Street Paws, in addition to it's primary day to day use.


Along with your extensive training, including Vets Training, Operation Training, Accredited Pet First Aid Training and City & Guilds Qualifications in Pet Sitting, owners will feel confident in leaving their pets in your care.

Whether you are looking to start a new Animal Franchise business or have a change of career working with animals, Animals at Home is a great opportunity.

Essential skills...

Ideal franchisees are enthusiastic, energetic, organised, people who love pets and you have dreamed of working with animals, if you have the desire to provide a caring, friendly, professional pet care service that is superior to all others. We can give you the opportunity to work for yourself, but not by yourself with marketing and social media. The Pet Franchise you are building is your own, but you will not have to do it on your own, with a support team backing you up!

Daily tasks...

Collecting animals for journeys to and from the local vets, arranging the home visits for the clients wanting animals looked after at home. Daily dog walking and cat feeding jobs. The sensible use of time management to allow best routes and jobs to fit into daily workload.
