Animals at Home started up the Cornwall operation in March 2015. We work with the public, vets and animals welfare groups. Our ethos is based on personal service, reliability and the very best of care for your pet.
We have a range of excellent host families across Cornwall, all of which have been chosen for their love of animals and their ability to devote their time to your animals whilst they are in our care.We are a family of animal lovers having had allsorts over the years. As our children are all grown up and are raising their own families, this has given us the opportunity to spend our time doing what we enjoy most, which is working with animals. We trained at a Veterinary practice in animal first aid and have completed courses in animal nutrition and domestic feline care.
Dog Home Boarding. Your dog will be cared for in a manner as a close as possible to their usual home environment. If your dog is used to a quiet life with no children or other dogs, then our host family again will be similar. You will be invited to visit the host family before you choose, so you can see the environment your best friend will be staying in and meet the people who will look after them. When the family has been selected, you may want your dog to go to that family every time you go away, and this is something we strive for. We provide the transportation of your pet to and from the host family.
Cat Sitting, Rabbits and Chickens, and don’t forget those Parrots and Budgies need attention whilst you are away. We can either arrange daily visits, or with those parrots and budgies, why not let us look after them in our own home, and give them the company they need.
We endeavour to ensure that all of your pets needs are met. To achieve this, we arrange to visit you and your pets to fully identify your requirements. During our visit, we note all feeding, cleaning, exercise routines and also any medications, if applicable. We then draw up a care plan which is sent to you for your approval. We know how much you care and worry about them and that’s why we take extra special care of them whilst you are away.
Transportation: We have a specially fitted out vehicle which is DEFRA approved so can offer a Pet Ambulance or Taxi service for owners who are unable to drive or are unavailable to take their pets to the vet or groomers. We collect, accompany, and return your pet home. You as the owner are always welcome to travel with your pet if you would prefer. We can transport to anywhere else in the UK or indeed into Europe in our specialist animal ambulance, which is designed specifically for the safe transportation of animals.
Pet Transport Abroad. When you’re travelling abroad, we understand it can be stressful enough dealing with your own arrangements. Let us do the hard work for you. As dedicated pet movers, we can cover all your pets’ needs, from supplying IATA compliant travel containers to arranging boarding facilities for cats and dogs in case flights are delayed. We know what documentation needs completing and are always up to date with HM Customs & Excise regulations.
Pet Cremations. When you are ready to say goodbye, we can arrange a private pet cremation service. The choice of how you wish to say goodbye is yours. We believe guaranteed individual cremation is the best way. We can collect your pet from your home, or your vet and take them direct to the Crematorium. We will return your pets ashes to you at home as you require.
