Meet Deb

From corporate life to franchise life

Deborah is at the helm of the We Love Pets branch in Hereford, bring with her a lifelong passion for animals. Raised near farmland, she grew up surrounded by a diverse array of creatures, from the typical dogs and cats to the more unconventional mice, chickens, and even tarantulas! Her love for nature and outdoor adventures led her briefly consider becoming a dog walker for another We Love Pets branch. However, fate had a more significant role in mind, eventually placing her in charge of her own branch. 

Deborah’s enthusiasm for walking led her to meticulously plot the most picturesque and enjoyable dog-walking routes in Hereford. She has also handpicked a team of individuals who share her deep-seated love and unwavering commitment to animals. 

What’s truly remarkable is Deborah’s transition from her 28-year career in the banking sector, specifically in Lloyds Branch Business Banking, where she had extensive experience working with franchises and conducting thorough research. It was a natural choice for her to align her passion with her profession by joining We Love Pets.

Meet Joe

From office worker to franchisee

It was now or never!

‘I have always wanted to work for myself and knew it was now or never to start something new. A franchise provided the support I needed- marketing, website, and planning – while allowing me the ability to control my success. We Love Pets stood out by offering comprehensive services and more potential for success.

We Love Pets responded promptly and provided detailed information, setting them apart. Their support and training. Including first aid, impressed me. Other franchises weren’t as memorable or responsive. If you’re ready to own a business with a strong support system, definitely consider We Love Pets.’

Meet Kirsty and Matt

From employment to freedom

‘We love doing something together that we enjoy and can personally invest in. We are excited to have the freedom to work for ourselves. We love the values that We Love Pets stand for, the fact that they train their franchisees so well and their number one priority is the welfare of the animals.’
