About Us

Simply the Pets was founded in 2008 and have been providing excellent, reliable pet services ever since.

We pride ourselves on running a business with whom you can depend and rely upon. Your animal is not seen as a commodity - we see them as an important member of your family and because of that we will welcome them into our lives as if they were our own.

Simply the Pets knows how important your pet is to you, but also understands that life can sometimes stand in the way of you being able to provide all the time and attention they require. So if you're at work all day, have had a change in circumstances or are not as fit as you once were, we're here to help.

If you have any questions or would just like to talk about how we may be able to help you please get in contact.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Simply the Pets owner

Hayley, owner & founder

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at our site!

I founded Simply the Pets after deciding to turn my lifelong passion for animals into a career. At 19 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease, a year of treatment followed but out of the bad came good and I realised that I had to do something I loved and felt passionate about, so in 2008 Simply the Pets was born & I haven't looked back since! My dream has always been to have a large animal family and by creating Simply the Pets this dream has been fufilled as each pet in our care becomes part of the Simply the Pets family.


I am a dedicated, loving person who enjoys and bounces off the unconditional affection of all animals.

Working with Simply the Pets allows me to be able to care for, enjoy and share the experiences with my clients pets and also having the extra privilege of being outdoors, no matter what the weather!


I love all types of pets from goldfish to horses and have had first hand experience with most throughout my life. My soft spot lies most definitely with cats and dogs and I love getting cuddles and kisses from all breeds and sizes. Working alongside Simply the Pets keeps me happy by being around my favourite animals all of the time.


I’ve grown up in an environment where dogs are part of the family and have had my dog Maisie, now 9, since she was 8 weeks old. I’m now the annoying person in the street who will stop you and make a fuss of your dog!

I consider myself to be very lucky getting to spend my day with dogs and other animals.


I grew up in a household where there were always cats and dogs, along with various other small pets. I currently have 2 Romanian rescue dogs, Louis and Bella, 2 guinea pigs and a number of marine fish. Working with STP has given me that opportunity and for me, there couldn't be a more fulfilling or rewarding role!


I have always had a massive love for all animals, and I'm delighted to get to work with them on a daily basis. I have grown up around cats and dogs, and currently have a house rabbit called Willow. I love being outside everyday with the wide variety of dogs we have the pleasure of looking after and also being surrounded by beautiful country side.
