Pets are both our business and our passion and ‘Pets before Profit’ has always been our number one core value. Advocating the ethical and responsible treatment of pets is incredibly important to us and we believe the best way to do this is to lead by example, so we keep every aspect of our pet operations under regular scrutiny.
