About West Halam Pet Services
My name is Una and I have lived in West Hallam over 20 years and locally all my life. I have been an animal lover all my life and have had pets since I was a child.
When I was 3 years old my family adopted a German Shepherd named Rinty. Rinty had been rejected from the police force because he was frightened of bangs so he joined our family. Rinty and I were the same age and everywhere I went, Rinty went too. At the age of 11 Rinty passed away, which was very sad time for me, as I had known him virtually all my life and I had lost my best friend. Also at that time a Jackdaw flew into my life and of course we named him “Jack”, he used to go to school with me and wait for break time and as soon as he saw me, he would fly onto my head, which caused lots of laughter amongst the other kids. He was also a devil for pinching things and taking them to his den.
Following the loss of Rinty my father brought me a Staffordshire Bull Terrier for my 12th Birthday his name was Brandy. When he was a puppy I would carry him wrapped in my coat and people used to think I had a little piglet, at the time Staffordshire Bull Terriers were not a popular breed. He was a fantastic faithful dog who would protect me. At the same time I had a Ginger Tom cat called Suki. When I lost Brandy I had a Pekingese called Bobby who had the courage of a lion, who used to go to meet Ian with me, my future husband.
Fortunately my husband Ian is a pet lover too since we have been married we have had a range of pets. Our current pets are Ted and Lily who are British Shorthairs cats. We also have Koi Carp in a large pond in our garden which are now around 20 years old and we have had them since babies.
Having been given an opportunity to change my career for something I truly love I started my own pet sitting service.
I will give the same care and attention to any pet I am entrusted to, as I do my own putting them first. I would be happy and do my best to fit in with whatever you and your pets require.
I am a member and supporter of West Hallam Animal Charities and support many other animal charities.
