Our ethos

Our team are first and foremost animal lovers with a passion for animal safety and doing things properly. People who love pets come from all walks of life so there is no single career route into what we do. Our team come from backgrounds as varied as the armed forces, teaching, sales, IT, legal and many more – but we do all we live and breathe the We Love Pets values, or Paws for Thought as we call them.

The way that we approach our work is to care for any pet with the same love and attention you would if they were your own. We don’t pack walk either because animal welfare is our number one priority.
