Aunty Helen’s Pet Services

I have always had a passion for animals and grew up with cats as a child.  Although I wanted a career in the animal world, events took a different path and I made my profession as a secretary.

Six years ago I contacted my local boarding kennels to see if they wanted any help.  They wanted dog walkers and the rest as they say is history.  Although I am only there once a week I decided that being a secretary was not fulfilling me as it used to as I wanted to spend most of my time at the kennels.

After careful consideration I decided to change my life and I therefore set up Aunty Helen’s Pet Services.

I have over the last twenty years been owned by two cats and four chinchillas.  Sadly due to old age and health issues I am now pet free.

As I single person I know what it is like to trust someone with your loved one(s), they are not just a pet but family and as “Aunty” I will treat them like they are my own until your return.

I am fully insured and CRB checked, honest and reliable.

Poppys Place Animal Rescue

Poppy's Place Animal Rescue is a small animal rescue based in Essex.

To avoid misunderstanding, I do a Pet Sitting service which means I come into your home to look after your furries. A Pet Minder however means I bring your dog into my house and this is NOT a service I provide at this present time.

Areas covered – Westcliff, Southend-on-Sea, Thorpe Bay, Shoeburyness and Great Wakering.
