SME News Midlands Enterprise Awards 2020 – Best Pet Care Provider East Staffordshire & South Derbyshire

We have lived in Burton for 20 years and have an adorable Irish Terrier, Lily, (her mother Enya recently passed away) as well as chickens laying what Claire calls ‘happy eggs’ and a Guinea Pig called ‘Pyg’. With eight children, and currently 14 grandchildren, over the years we have looked after most small furry pets including rats, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits and guinea pigs. Claire’s childhood included having standard poodles, sheep and horses. Her brother currently farms an organic mixed arable and livestock farm in Nottinghamshire and we enjoy helping out with the lambing and calving.

We have both received professional animal training at a RCVS veterinary hospital, including first aid, animal handling, hygiene and pet nutrition. We work closely with all veterinary practices in the area and have a fully equipped Animal Ambulance which is DEFRA approved and hold a Type 2 Animal Transportation Authorisation allowing us to take pets locally and across the UK in comfort and safety.

For your peace of mind, we are fully insured, hold DBS enhanced certificates, are City & Guilds qualified, and members of the Derbyshire County Council Trusted Trader Scheme. We have recently been awarded ‘Best Pet Care Provider East Staffordshire & South Derbyshire’, by SME News Midlands Enterprise Awards 2020.

For 10 years we have had the privilege of serving pets and their owners across East Staffordshire & South Derbyshire. Our pet care services include:

  • Dog walking and home visits
  • Cat feeding & sitting
  • Small pet feeding & sitting
  • Exotic pet feeding & sitting
  • Pet taxi & pet transport
  • Guaranteed individual pet cremation
  • Smallholding feeding

So, whether it’s your prized tropical fish, aviary birds, reptiles, adorable furry friends, happy hens, devoted feline or loyal canine companion (or all of them together!), we can care for your pets both large and small. We also have experience caring for animals in smallholdings, including horses, pigs, goats, sheep, ducks, geese and chickens.

We look forward to meeting you and your pets and giving you the peace of mind that your pets and homes will be in safe hands.
