Pets are good for us!
We believe in and promote responsible pet ownership. Not only are pets great companions and family members but there is evidence that they can help reduce stress in adults and help children to learn about life and even do better at school!
We match pets to people
Responsible pet ownership
If you are thinking of buying a pet our trained store colleagues will spend time with you to make sure that you choose the best pet to suit yours and the animal's lifestyles. By matching owners and pets we hope to ensure a long and happy relationship. Please be aware that we are only able to sell pets to customers who are over the age of 18.
Bringing a pet into your life and home is a huge commitment. You are promising to look after it and care for it throughout its life. So, in the interests of responsible pet ownership, we will not sell pets to under 16's unless they are accompanied by an adult. We also appreciate that travelling can be stressful for many animals and so try to minimise the distance that animals travel from breeders to our stores. On arrival in store, pets are given time to rest away from the shop floor. This varies by species and helps us to ensure that they are happy and healthy before they are moved to their new home.
Puppies and Kittens
Of course, we love puppies and kittens as much as other animals but prefer to recommend that you obtain them from a reputable local breeder, who will be able to provide specific breed advice. Check out the Puppy Index in store for details of local breeders. Alternatively, why not visit your local rescue centre where you'll find puppies and kittens along with older dogs and cats looking for adoption by loving new owners.
In store we have rabbits, guinea pigs and a selection of the smaller mammals such as hamsters and gerbils. All our small animals are bred by reputable specialists.
We stock a range of tropical and coldwater fish suitable for beginner's right through to more serious fish lovers. Don't forget, it is important to wait at least 3 days with all the tank systems running before adding any fish in order for the environment to stabilise and the tank to be at its optimum for supporting aquatic life. We also carry out a free water test to ensure the condition is perfect for your new arrivals. Simply bring a sample of water from your new tank into your local store and a member of the team will be happy to help.
