James & Fiona are joining the We Love Pets family with their new Calder Valley branch! As usual, we want to welcome them into the network with a We Love Pets interview!
Do you have any pets? What are their names?
Yes! We live on a farm and have lots of pets. We have been proud foster parents with Silver Fox dog rescue for 2 years and have welcomed lots of foster dogs during that time. We now have 2 chihuahuas Echo and Saffron who are mother and daughter. We have 3 rescue cats – Boggy, Paddy and Gracie and 6 horses including; Gwendolyn the Shire Horse, 3 pure bred Arabs – Jak, Dominicus & Becks that our daughter Becky competes with. Then there’s Sid our Gypsy Vanner cob and Cherry a part bred Arab. In addition on the farm we have 4 Chinese geese and several silkies and hens.
What have you done previously before deciding to start your journey with WLP?
Fiona: I was a mobile hairdresser and James is a quantity surveyor. Our daughter Becky will also be joining us in the business and has worked at an equine veterinary practise for the past 6 years.
What are you most excited about with owning a WLP branch?
We are both very excited to be working with animals and can’t wait to meet everyone’s pets and get to know their owners. We look forward to making a difference knowing that families can go away on holiday with peace of mind that their pets will be loved and well cared for while they are away.
How did you discover WLP? Why did you choose WLP?
It was during a conversation with a best friend that mentioned his sister-in-law had a We Love Pets franchise and highly recommended the business. After a look on the We Love Pets website and a chat with Ryan, We Love Pets Managing Director, we realised that there was a gap in our area. We love the brand, the systems that are in place and the great business support.
Do you have any hobbies?
Our hobbies include horse riding, cooking, reading and fixing fences – there is always plenty of farm maintenance to be taking care of!
