About Us

We're a family run business

We are a husband and wife team, and when our daughter is old enough, hopefully she will carry the same passion for animals and providing the same personal touch we do. As we are a small business we feel we can offer more and make everyone feel welcome!

We're passionate about animals

Paul has a huge passion for reptiles, as do I. We have our own private collection as well as whats in the shop. Hannah enjoys the furries, dogs,cats and has a knack for catching the birds. We will always do our best to answer any questions, from personal experience and a lot of reading.

We're Professional

As we are a licensed business, we feel we can offer that personal touch and we will not rush you out the door.

Came in today to buy a baby rat and he has fallen in love, burying himself in the bra. Had some very good advice about rat and other pets nutrition. The owner knows all about rats and was very knowledgeable. Feel completely at ease with this shop and know that the pets are well cared for and handled every day.
