Our Story So Far….
Animals at Home – offering a great alternative to a kennel or cattery!
We are Jeff and Donna Garratty and we live in the beautiful cathedral city of Lichfield. We share our home with our cats Meena and Timmy, and our black Labrador sisters, Jasmine and Jade.
When we started our pet care business over four years ago, it was a decision driven by frustration. At the time, finding good quality pet care when we were at work or away on holiday was always a real challenge. We believe people and their animals deserve better, so we gave up our jobs and so began our journey in professional pet care!
We became part of the Animals at Home franchise on 01 June 2016 when we began a new start-up branch in North Warwickshire. We grew it into a thriving business before selling and relocating, just so that we could do it all over again in Staffordshire.
So that we can provide the very best, safest and the most professional service possible to you and to your furry folk, we have both received professional animal training at an RCVS veterinary hospital which involves first aid, animal handling, hygiene and pet nutrition. We also hold City & Guilds qualifications in pet care.
Each of our team members is trained, insured and DBS checked for your peace of mind, and we hold 5 star-rated animal boarding establishment licenses for all of our wonderful host families (dog home boarders).
Since we began, we have loved and cared for the most amazing pets. We’ve learned so much from each and every one of them. We never take for granted the trust that is given to us by our clients to look after their homes, and their beloved furry-folk. For that, they can expect a first-class service, backed up by pet industry qualifications and best practice.
