About Animals at Home

The concept of Animals at Home is based on the experience of pet owners, some of whom are occasionally away from home, and some who are regularly away or not able at times to look after their pets at the appropriate times. While people may put their dog into kennels or cat into a cattery, its well accepted that both dogs and cats seem better in their own environments, with least disruption, furthermore what about the Rabbits, Birds, Mice and Hamsters etc, which many families have.

Animals At Home, established since 2002 and franchising since 2005, provides a solution to this problem enabling people to spend time away from their pets with peace of mind knowing their pets are well looked after in their absence.
