“Our rabbit (Thumper) and guinea pig (Bertie) stay with you whilst we’re on our holidays. We have been so pleased with the service provided and the animals always come home in good health and spirits. The collection and delivery service makes our lives so easy and the drivers are always amazing ☺ Thank you so much guys!!”

Justin and Stephanie Fox and family

“Thank you so much for looking after our Chinchilla ‘Tony’ whilst we were off on our honeymoon!! You really put our mind at rest with the pictures you sent and we couldn’t have asked for a better service. Tony looked great when you delivered him home for us and settled straight back in. We’ll definitely be seeing you again soon in the summer! Many thanks.”
