Pet Sitting

Animals at Home provide a professional pet sitting service in your own home whilst you are away, with UK National coverage.

Many people consider their pets as part of the family. They love, care and worry about them, as much as any other member of the family. Therefore, the thought of going away and putting their pets into boarding establishments causes feelings of stress, guilt and unhappiness.

Many animals find boarding establishments extremely stressful, as they do not receive the love, attention and cuddles they are use to in a family home. This is why Animals at Home offers this specialised service.

Our registered Pet Sitters will be DBS checked, insured through your local Animals at Home branch, ensuring peace of mind that your property is in safe hands and your pets continue to enjoy their daily routine with overnight care until your return home.

We provide alternative arrangements for pets when you go away and give you total peace of mind by providing a trustworthy, experienced and reliable pet sitting service.
