Tracey & Nigel Palmer - 05/09/2017

"We had Luke to house sit and pet sit (4 cats and 1 dog) for us while we went on our summer holiday its the first time we have used a pet sitting service so we didn't really know what to expect. The service from Luke was excellent from the home visit to the end of our holiday we had regular updates the house was clean and tidy the grass cut, Plants watered and most of all the animals were happy and looked after. We will definitely be using Luke again and would recommend his services to anyone needing a pet/house sitter."


Jane & Steve - 15/02/2017


"We recently asked Luke to house and dog sit for us, including 2 nights stay-over. From the initial enquiry through to our return, we received a first-class service; tailored exactly to our needs.

The time and consideration put into setting up the service was excellent, as were the detailed updates we received whilst we were away. It was good to know Max was having the very best of care, Luke clearly loves animals. We were over the moon to find our house beautifully cleaned on our return, perk of the house sit! Regular routines; bins out, etc, were also carried out exactly as requested.

Great peace of mind to have someone so conscientious looking after the security of house and welfare of our boy. We cannot recommend this company highly enough…thanks so much."


Paula Lees - 14/09/2016


"Really pleased with the way Luke looked after our cats and house while we were on holiday.

He was really thorough taking our requirements and he carried them out to the letter.

We have never left the cats before and we weren't sure how they would be when we got back, but they were totally chilled and groomed to perfection!

We will certainly use Animals 24/7 if we go away again."


Amanda & Nigel - 21/07/2016


"We can absolutely 100% recommend Luke and Animals 24/7. He looked after our two cats, fish, house and garden as well as, if not better than, we do! The cats were well cared for and we appreciated the updates as it was the first time we'd left them. The hanging baskets were immaculate despite a heatwave to match the weather we paid to visit! So pleased with the service, will definitely use again. Thank you, Luke!"


Vonnie & Jon - 14/07/2016


"First-Class! Luke came in to look after our Norfolk Terrier on 8/9 July 2016 during a very difficult time for all. From the initial visit right through to the care his planning was meticulous and went far beyond our expectation. His genuine concern, empathy and the regular text/email updates really did put our fretting at ease. Every thing from house security to throwing ball was covered, we can't thank him enough. Animals 24/7 are SUPERSTARS!"


Alex & Cathy Martin - 14/06/2016


"Luke visited our cat Lilly for a week while we were on holiday. He was completely professional, friendly and very thorough. We both felt confident that our cat was in good hands. The regular updates when we were away were also very reassuring. We would have no hesitation in recommending this service to other pet owners.


Mrs Thornton - 04/06/2016

"Have used the service for a few times now. We are very pleased with the care and attention our cats have received and will be using them again and would recommend."


Nikki Fox - 02/06/2016

"It's the first time I have used a pet sitting service and I was a bit nervous. I need not have been, the service was very professional and put me at ease. The home visit was very thorough and Luke took time to get to know my cats. On my return everything was clean and tidy but most importantly my cats were very happy and content. Will use animals 24/7 again for sure."


Annemarie Simmons - 31/05/2016

"We used animals 24/7 for a week for our indoor cat Smudge, and couldn't be more happy with Emma and Luke's service. From start to finish they provided excellent service, constantly ensured that smudge was happy and had lots of playtime and interaction. They sent regular updates and nothing was too much trouble for them. Superb service and will definitely be using again!"


Mr & Mrs Starmer - 31/03/2016

"Fantastic service! This is the first time we've used a professional pet feeding service and will now be using Animals 24/7 every time we go away. So much better than putting on neighbours which I've never been comfortable doing and much much better than using than a catery as our cat would absolutely hate that. We came home from holiday to a detailed report on how our cat had been while we were away and the keys were returned promptly. Very professional and caring service… thank you!"


Mrs Cameron - 28/03/2016

"Really appreciate - not only the professional and caring way my cats are treated - but the way their 'idiosyncrasies' are accepted as well! Also having the house sitting arrangements - of closing curtains, lights etc is an added bonus."


Fraser Macpherson - 22/03/2016

"The fact that the claw clipping service is performed as a "housecall" by a professional (veterinary nurse) in a very caring and competent manner is very comforting and reassuring. We would not hesitate in recommending Emma to other pet owners."


Kay Haddon - 05/01/2016

"Can't thank Animals 24/7 enough. Have been away for a week & used their services (Luke) for the first time. From their initial visit to meet the cats & us , to arriving home I was happy . The daily emails updating me certainly reassured me that all was going well. I have two cats one loves fuss & people. The other quite unsocial who behaved as we expected but know that Luke did his best to encourage her out & check on her.

The added security checks, putting out of bin, feeding the birds & even watering my plants are amazing. Would certainly recommend to others & give them an A+++++ rating. Thank you"


Emma Emery - 23/12/2015

"I recently went away for 11 nights. This is the longest I have ever left my cat & was very worried however there was no need to worry. Luke kept me updated everyday (even when I had to change email address due to problems logging in ). I was then delayed by 25 hours but Luke still managed to fit in visits. This is a super service! I wouldn't dream of having anyone else look after my cat. Thanks Luke your service is A*."


Charlotte Cole - 20/08/2015

"Animals 24/7 did a fantastic job looking after our 2 bunnies whilst we were on holiday for 2 weeks, as well taking care of our fish, garden and house. The daily text updates from Luke really reassured us that our bunnies were fine and happy. Animals 24/7 provide a superb service and Luke and Emma are absolutely brilliant at what they do. I would definitely use their service again."


Rob Price - 10/08/2015

"I am very impressed with the overall service that Animals 24/7 have provided me. I left it too late to find a cattery for a holiday, and stumbled on Animals 24/7 when looking for an alternative. What a great find that turned out to be. During the time I was away I was kept fully informed of not only the health and happiness of the cat, but the security of the house. It was so reassuring knowing that the cat was happy in familiar surroundings, and also that the house was safe and secure. Start to finish it was a great service, at what I thought was a very reasonable cost. I'll certainly be booking Animals 24/7 over the cattery next time."


Anja Sibbes, DVM, MRCVS (veterinary surgeon) - Earls Barton - 05/08/2015

"Animals 24/7 have always looked after our cats really well, they spent time with them and made sure they were happy. This is even more important now that we have only one elderly cat left, who unfortunately suffers with heart disease. You know you can trust them, and you have the piece of mind that if he became unwell they would sort out the proper care, no question. I would not trust anyone else. Very highly recommended. Anja Sibbes, DVM, MRCVS (veterinary surgeon)."


Kelly Dunsford from Finedon - 04/08/2015

"Animals 24/7 is a fantastic service and very professional we asked them to look after our cat for the weekend while we went away, we couldn't of asked for better service they visited everyday Feed her changed the litter tray and changed her drinking water we also got daily updates about how the visits went and how our cat was which really put us at ease. We had also forgotten to take out our recycling before going away and Animals 24/7 even took that out for us which we really appreciated ?? Before we went away they visited us and went through everything they needed to know about our cat and to meet her. I will definitely be using Animals 24/7 again. Thanks Kelly."


Rebecca, Glenda and Martin Profit from Kettering - 16/07/2015

'We have never left our dogs with anyone but family which meant when we had a family wedding coming up we were worried. Emma came over for a couple of trials and she was and is wonderful with the boys. They are happy and settled and calm when we come back. Emma updates us by text every couple of hours, and our minds are put at rest completely. Without her we could not have gone as a family to my son's wedding or the events that preceded it. We trust Emma completely with 2 of our family members, and they are happy when she comes around, and always sorry to see her go, she has a genuine love of dogs which comes through and we shall continue to use her when we need to go somewhere they can't. Thank you.'

Liz Leaberry from Finedon - 10/06/2015

"Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did looking after our little colony. I know its not easy looking after 10 cats shut in for a weekend. But you were so caring for them, and efficient in completing the jobs like cleaning the litter trays and keeping the feeding dishes spotless!"

Kendra Holder from Wellingborough - 07/06/2015

"Excellent service by Luke - he was determined to win over my cats! House was left tidy for when I returned and I went away on holiday knowing that my two cats would be well looked after. Thanks for a top notch service and will definitely use for my next holiday."

Lucie Phoenix from Wollaston - 11/05/2015

"Excellent service received from Luke. From beginning to end he expressed genuine interest in our cats and cared for them in such a way that they were looking for him when we returned home and not us !"

Judi Spanner from Wollaston - 04/05/2015

"This is the second time I have used Emma and Luke and for the second time they've provided an excellent service. They always do "that little bit more". My dog was a little anxious, so they put on the radio and took him out for extra walks. Things like that just show how much they care about animals. I would highly recommend 24/7. Thank you guys x."

Emma & Gary from Wellingborough - 09/04/2015

"Luke provided an excellent service to look after our cat while we were away. She seemed very happy and Luke provided me with in depth up dates. I would highly recommend! Thanks Luke for a great service."

Lucy Pomroy from Earls Barton - 22/02/2015

"We recently started using Animals 24/7 to look after our two cats when we go away. From the outset, Luke has been prompt in responding to our enquiries, very thorough in getting to know our pets' needs and has provided excellent care for them when we have been away. Luke has even contacted us with updates and has left comprehensive reports for us upon our return. Most importantly, our two cats are clearly very happy to remain in our home and to see Luke when we are away - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Animals 24/7 to anyone!"

Anne Wilson from Wollaston - 23/10/2014

"Luke looked after my cat Cara for me for a few days in September. I was delighted with the service - he took a great deal of trouble to learn about her little eccentricities and I came home to a happy cat! Thank you, Luke."

Mr & Mrs Boycott from Wollaston - 02/10/2014

"Animals 24/7 are fabulous! We have had them a few times now for our two cats when we went away on holiday and the cats seemed very happy once we returned. The bowls are are cleaned out, their pot is always left cleaned and tidy and I know the cats love the fuss that Luke gives to them. Thanks Luke for everything."

Colin Bridges from Bozeat - 03/09/2014

"Animals 24/7 provide a fantastic service, on our return everything is fantastic food is out dishes are all clean and our cats look happy and content, it is very obvious Luke & Emma spend time with our cats as the comments left in there report could not made otherwise, they are part of our cats lives. One of our cats requires medication and this has been no trouble to them, in fact I'm sure they are extending there day to make sure she gets her tablets at the correct time."



Klaartje Van Der Schaaf (MRCVS) from Irthlingborough - 27/08/2014

"We used animals 24/7 during our holiday to look after our 2 cats and rabbit. Being a vet myself I am very picky about who looks after my animals, but from the word go Luke has been fantastic: prompt replies to enquiries, an extensive intake visit to discuss our wishes and the animal's needs, professional handling of the contract and so on and so on! A lovely update whilst we were away, which was much appreciated! Upon return we found our apartment to be tidier than when we left it, the animals content and extensive notes on how they had been. I haven't worried for a minute whilst away and cannot recommend Animals 24/7 highly enough!"

Veronica Close from Wellingborough - 11/07/2014

"I used Luke and Emma's pet service for the first time for 3 weeks in June. I was very pleased with the service they gave. So much better than taking Millie to the cattery which really stressed her. Millie can be nervous but Luke won her over. Luke followed all instructions for Millie. The garden and greenhouse were looked after and I have no complaints. I will certainly use 24/7 again and recommend them, Luke and Emma provide a first class service, they also gave me updates by email which was very reassuring.Thank you. Veronica and Millie."

Jason & Ann Fairall from Raunds - 29/05/2014

"Luke and Emma have looked after our small tribe of 5 cats three times since we found out about their service. It provided us with a way of having our cats looked after without the potential stress of getting all or our cats in to a car to deliver them to a cattery, and with the added bonus of someone checking on your home while we were away. An excellent service at a competitive price supplied by people passionate about their work, what more can you ask for. Jason and Ann from Raunds.".

Kat Baker from Little Harrowden - 26/05/2014

"We used Emma and Luke for the first time to look after our dog, Barney, while we were away attending our daughters wedding. We did not want to leave him in kennels as this would be too stressful. They were very professional and very caring with him. When Emma came to do our initial visit, Barney was happy to be with her, which made us feel comfortable about leaving him in their care. They were able to administer insulin and feed him at the times required and take him out. They also closed curtains and put on lights. We would definitely recommend them and would use their services again. Thankyou Emma and Luke."

Maria Mayo from Raunds - 14/05/2014

"We have been using Luke and Emma to care for our cats when we go away for the last couple of years, and are extremely happy with the service. The cats are always very happy and well fed when we return, and as well as food and water they get played with and fussed over, which makes me so much more relaxed to leave them. I know that if there was any problem with the cats it would be well taken care of. The additional things such as turning lights on and off and opening and shutting curtains give peace of mind that the house is secure. I always look forward to my text updates from Luke, letting me know how everything is going and that the cats are happy. Overall I highly recommend using animals 24/7 to anyone wanting a trustworthy and caring service for their animals".

Jacqui Disalvo (RVN) from Rushden - 12/05/2014

"We recently used Animals 24/7 for the first time and would recommend Luke and Emma 100% for the service they provide. My 15 year old cat Zee is diabetic and insulin dependant, I did not want him to be stressed whilst I was on holiday so this was a perfect alternative to using a cattery. It meant Zee could stay at home and Luke and Emma came in twice a day to feed him his special dietary food and adminster his insulin by injection, aswell as giving him his metacam for arthritis.

Every evening I got a text update which was so nice and reassuring to know Zee was absolutley fine and in great hands.

The extra services provided if wanted such as security checks on doors and windows on my property, rubbish bins being placed out for collection and brought back in again, plants being watered as well as coming home to find my house being hoovered was brilliant! It gave extra peace of mind whilst we were away.

I would definately use Animals 24/7 again and very highly recommend them.

Thank you Jacqui, Olivia and Zee."

G.M. Thompson from Great Doddington - March 2014

"I have had Animals 24/7 to walk my dog for 3 years, and can't recommend them highly enough. I find them very professional, friendly, considerate and a pleasure to deal with".

Jason Thornburgh from Irthlingborough, Northants - March 2014

"Luke was always willing to help, i have used 24/7 services a lot and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this service, nothing is to much , always willing to that little bit extra if they can, always an excellent service and would use them again. Jason , irthlingborough".

Les Poulter from Rushden, Northants - March 2014

"Taking something on recommendation is far better than a number out of the phone book. I can say asking Animals 24/7 after recommendation from a friend, was well worth it after the experience i had with a previous dog walker. Animals 24/7 are prompt and caring for your dogs. Spending time with them, keeping an eye out for any problems they could have like limping, etc. Also changing their water to keep it fresh during the day. For your home security, turning on lights if you require if you are arriving home after dark. So i can highly recommend Animals 24/7"

Nikola Lawson from Wellingborough - March 2014

"We are so pleased we have found animals 24/7.. Luke has been visiting us to keep our english and Irish setters company since last August. The visits are tailored to exactly what you require, and he texts us afterwards to let us know how they are. Luke is very professional and caring and I would recommend him and animals 24/7 100%".

Will Morris from Bozeat, Northants - March 2014

"I am very impressed by the excellent service that Luke provides to my golden retriever Artu. We receive an update after each visit and Luke also lets us know if all is ok with our house. He is extremely professional, caring and trustworthy. When needed he is also very flexible at short notice. My dog adores him!"

Neil Gold from Irthlingboough, Northants - August 2013

"Fantastic service. We were very impressed with the communication after each visit the care taken over our cats and property ( even putting bins out) very friendly staff an very attentive to our pets and their needs and routines. We would definitely use them again and would highly recommend as much less stress then a cattery etc. Thanks neil, Sam Marmite an Strawberry".

John & Penny Brown from Wollaston, Northants - August 2013

"We left our grumpy cat Henrietta in Lukes tender care for a week. Everything we agreed was carried out to the letter. In addition, he even watered the tomato plants and topped up the fish feed. When we got home, we found he'd vacuumed the hall! We think that was all very thoughtful. With this amount of peace of mind - how can you help but feel more relaxed while you are away from home? Definitely recommend and will definitely re-use".

Jayne & Mark Davis from Raunds, Northants - August 2013

"We have been using Luke & Emma (Animals 24/7) for about 3 and a half years, 3 x weekly for dog walking. This service is a godsend, as we can go off to work knowing he will not be shut in all day - am sure he goes crazy when he hears Luke come in! Luke is extremely professional, loves our dog and will do anything to help you out - e.g. changing days at short notice or doing extra days - even at weekends. I recommend Luke to anyone & everyone that has a pet they need caring for!" : )

Niki & Andy Farr from Irchester, Northants - August 2013

"We have just used Luke & Emma for the first time to look after our animals (4 chinchillas, 1 guinea pig, 2 rabbits, 2 gerbils, and 2 tanks of fish). Emma was very thorough on our consultation for our requirements, and all animals were fed and cleaned out as promised, as we would do ourselves. Plants were watered as well and the rubbish bin was put out for collection. Luke send the text updates as promised, we definitely recommend this company for all animal needs, very good value for money for the amount of animals they took care of for us Niki and Andy."

Donn & Lori Kaczmarek from Higham Ferrers - August 2013

"It was so nice to know that our dogs were in such great care. Luke and Emma made our time away stress free. And my dogs enjoyed the fact they got to stay at home rather then a kennel. So glad we found their service".

Mandy Nicholson from Bozeat, Northants - July 2013

"Luke and Emma cared for our 2 rabbits and tomato plants for a 4 day period. We were reassured that they would be in safe hands when we met Emma for the consultation meeting. It was also reassuring that she is a registered vet nurse and gave them that extra bit of attention in certain areas! The txt updates at the agreed times was also appreciated. Although it was a cost we could have done without, compared to other services it was value for money, especially as we had the experience of a vet nurse to hand. We will certainly use again if the need arises & an additional thank you for ensuring that we had a garden to come back to as the weather was so hot and dry while we were away".

Jack & Erica Gault from Stanwick, Northants - July 2013

"Very satisfied with the service cats were well looked after would recommend 24 / 7 to friends".

Colin Finch from Wellingborough - April 2013

"Excellent service, cats were taken care of in exactly the way that they trained me to do. When I arrived back they barely opened an eyelid so they must have been happy. Happy to recommend, Best regards. Colin".

Marie-Lousie Smith from Higham Ferrers, Northants - April 2013

"I am completely satisfied with the service that Animals 24/7 provided while I was away. They covered all aspects of my cats care requirements during the initial consultation. All of these are carried out and when I got back I was happy that Marco had been looked after with the caring attention that I gave him. Luke kept me up-to-date with regular texts which help to put my mind at rest during the holiday. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs their pets looking after while they're away".

Anja Sibbes (MRCVS) from Earls Barton, Northants - April 2013

"They looked after our cats really well, and they spend the time with them and make sure they're happy. You know you can trust them, and you have the piece if mind that if one of the cats was unwell they would sort out the proper care, no question. Highly recommended".

Miss Ellen Siedlecki (MRCVS) from Wellingborough - April 2013

"Fantastic value for the fee! I am a vet and have three dogs: 2 Russels and a Standard Poodle. They love their walkies and cuddles with A24/7. I have complete trust in Animals 24/7 to come on time, attend kindly to each pet and administer any medications. The dogs are relaxed and happy when I return. No hesitation to recommend. E. S. , MRCVS".

Miss Miet Van Dijck (MRCVS) from Wollaston, Northants - April 2013

"Emma and Luke from Animal 24/7 have been looking after my 2 cats for quite a few years now when I go away. They always get plenty of attention and cuddles and they always look well, happy and settled when I get home. I know they look after them and care for them as if they were their own pets! I always get plenty of updates from them about how they are as I sometimes worry a bit. I have complete faith and trust in Animal 24/7 looking after my 2 very special cats and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other pet owners".

Mr & Mrs Whiteman from Kettering - April 2013

"We were taking a week away and we have 4 pedigree cats 2 of which we got recently and were a little worried about leaving them with someone new. Once we met Luke it eased our worries and he took a great attention to detail on the feeding preferences, where everything was kept etc. He sent us regular text messages so we knew all was ok, he also went into detail as to how the cats were which put us at ease and enabled us to enjoy our holiday. When we arrived back we saw he had even done some vacuuming and groomed one of the cats which was a very nice touch. We totally recommend using this service and we won't hesitate to use it again, Thank you Luke and Emma".

Carrie & Roger Seton from Wellingborough, Northants - March 2013

"Having used Animals 24/7 in April 2012 for 1 week we knew the high standard to expect. Away for 1 month Feb/Mar 2013 we were provided with text updates for our peace of mind. On our return it was clear from their behaviour that our animals had received the high standard of care and love whilst we were away. We would recommend Animals 24/7 to anyone. We will certainly be using them again".

Mr & Mrs Jennings from Rushden, Northants - March 2013

"Animals 24/7 have looked after our cats over the past five years and continue to do so. Luke is passionate about animals which is demonstrated in the dedication he shows when caring for our cats whilst we are away. We also have the added bonus of knowing our house is secure with the daily visits from Animals 24/7!"

Martin and Barbara Riley from Earls Barton, Northants - March 2013

"Luke and Emma walked our border terriers Maeve and Lola for many years, with dedication and such kindness.

They were always there when needed and sometimes at short notice.

Our girls are sadly no longer with us but we have wonderful memories of them. Luke very kindly sent us some lovely pictures which he had taken on their walks which we treasure".


"Thank you both".

Mrs. Robertson from Earls Barton, Northants - Feb 2013

"I used Animals 24/7 for dog walking and was very happy with the service. My dog Freddie wasn't the easiest to walk, but Luke at Animals 24/7 always managed him. Luke was always courteous and always managed to fit walks in for me or change them when required".

Mrs. Helen Read from Irchester, Northants - Feb 2013

"24/7 have helped us when we have gone away looking after our elderly guinea pigs and rabbit. They have also looked after our young dog. We have always been very pleased with the care and feedback that they have received and would not hesitate to use them again when we need to. Many thanks"!

Miss Jeanette White from Irthlingborough, Northants - Feb 2012

"I have used Animals 24/7 for a number of years and have been very pleased with the service provided. Luke has a great relationship with my dog who absolutely loves him! I have always found that my requests have been dealt with promptly and Luke has always fitted in any extra walks even at very short notice from me. When my old dog got very ill Luke would always make sure she was comfortable, on his visits to walk my other dog, and this gave me real piece of mind when I was at work as I knew Luke would contact me straight away with any concerns. I would happily recommend Animals 24/7 to anyone else".

Mr & Mrs Durrant from Wellingborough, Northants - January 2012

"We have found the service provided by Animals 24 -7 to be excellent. Luke provides a professional but caring approach to the welfare of both of our dogs. He keeps in touch with texts and emails and always replies promptly if we have any queries or concerns. He has been flexible in the service he has provided to us when we recently acquired a puppy. He is trustworthy and we have no qualms leaving our dogs in his care for twice weekly walks. We only wished we had found this service earlier!John and Dawn Durrant"

Elizabeth Grey from Scotland - August 2011

"An outstanding service provided by Luke. He travelled to South Wales to pick up a 12 week old pup for us and delivered her to Carlisle where we met him. He was totally professional throughout the whole process from initial contact to several follow up calls after we got home. Our pup was transported by herself in a clean spacious cage and he made several stops for her comfort and reassurance. Never having met him we were of course a bit anxious about the whole process but I cannot stress enough how totally trustworthy and dependable he was and would strongly recommend this service for anyone in a similiar situation in needing their pet transported.An excellent price, excellent service, excellent transporting facilities but moreover a genuinely caring and dedicated individual".

Mrs. Liz Murthar from Raunds, Northants - June 2011

"Used Animals 24/7 to feed our 3 cats whilst we were away for a week in June 2011. As soon as i met Emma i felt reassured that Animals 24/7 would do a good job, she really seemed to care about the animals and understand my concerns about making sure that were taken care of properly, i may have came across like a overly fussy mother but they are my babies and trusting them to someone is a big thing to me. I have used other service in the past and been left wondering if they were actually going to turn up at all, but with Animals 24/7 i felt totally confident to enjoy my holiday knowing my babies were in safe hands :) We will definitely be using their services again" :)

Mrs. Cooper from Wellingborough, Northants - February 2011

"This service really suits us and our dogs! We use the dog walking service for when we're on holiday, and also for those rare days when we're both at work during dog walking times. This means a last minute request normally and Animals 24/7 really try to accommodate us. Top class".

Mrs. Nicola Hill from Earls Barton, Northants - February 2011

"Animals 24/7 looked after our cat Charlie for a week while we were on holiday last year. Charlie has a heart condition and so we wanted to keep him in his usual environment. Animals 24/7 came in twice daily and spent time with Charlie, fed him and ensured good hygiene by washing feeding bowls and changing the litter tray regularly. This was the first time we used such a service and so wasn't sure what to expect, but they went above and beyond what we expected, even putting the bins out for us and hoovering at the end of the week. The cost was very reasonable, knowing that Charlie was well looked after in an environment that wouldn't exacerbate his heart condition. They carried out a home visit prior to the holiday and asked lots of questions about Charlie's needs, which made us feel confident that Charlie would get the best care, which he did. We'd recommend Animals 24/7 to anyone who needed such a service. We will definately use them again".

Mr. Simon Cooper from Wellingborough, Northants - February 2011

"Always great service even at extremely short notice, 24/7 is quite an apt name.I have 1 dog who is extremely nervous of anything new....not a problem with these guys, all is taken care of.I genuinely count these guys as part of my day to day life now and know I can leave my animals all day if necessary without worry! Now if only they could find walks somewhere less smelly???? ;c)9.5/10 keep it up 24/7".

Mrs. Naomi Davies from Earls Barton, Northants - November 2010

"Animals 24/7 have always offered us a friendly, reliable and very flexible service which has been invaluable given our constantly changing requirements for walks for our dog"!

Miss Michelle Chalke from Rushden, Northants - October 2010

"Animals 24/7 provide an excellent service and both my dogs look forward to being taken for a walk by them. They have also been excellent and fitted in extra visits when required. Its the extra little things they do that makes their service extra special. For example clearing up when my dogs have accidents and sending me texts or phoning me if I request it if I have to leave them when they are a little under the weather, to reassure me they are ok".

Ms Juliet Pollard from Abington, Northampton - October 2010

"I am very happy with the friendly and flexible service provided by Animals 24/7. They have a very caring attitude towards my dogs, each of whom have their own needs and personalities, and I know they are always well cared for".

Mrs Pooley from Wellingborough, Northants - October 2010

"Animals 24/7 have always done a fantastic job in looking after our two cats. Its very reassuring to know that they are in safe hands when we are away and that someone is keeping an eye on our house. Animals 24/7 are really easy to get on with, so if there are any problems when you are away, you know they will do their best to resolve them. When we come back home our cats are no longer anxious because we have been away. In fact sometimes I think they have also enjoyed the break away from us & our 11 month old daughter"!

Mr Hogan from Rushden, Northants - October 2010

"Extremely trustworthy and friendly service. Animals 24/7 removed all worry about how Freddie our Miniature Schnauzer would cope with us both being out at work. We even still had them walk him when we were at home as Freddie looked forward to them so much. I cannot recommend Animals 24/7 enough, you will not be disappointed with their services"!

Graeme Hall "The Dogfather" - August 2010

"I've used Animals 24/7's services now on a few occasions and they always do a great job. Their attention to detail and knowledge of animal care mean that while I'm away I never have to worry about my dogs because I know they're in good hands. The reports they leave are informative and useful too (It's always good to know that your dogs were well behaved while you were away!). I have nohesitation to recommend them to my dog training and behaviour clients. It's

a pleasure to work with people who have such a professional approach to animal care."

Mrs. Ellie Doak from Wellingborough, Northants - July 2010

"Jack is absolutely fine and we can tell that he was very well

looked after. We were also exceedingly impressed that you had hoovered the house - it looked great!


We won't be going away again until next Summer but rest assured we will be making a booking as soon as we have set the dates as we are very happy for you to take care of Jack again".

Mrs. Tracey Cooper from Wellingborough, Northants - July 2010

"We are thrilled with your service. It was great to go away knowing the animals were properly cared for in their own home and your service was a massive part of that. Thank you. We're now planning our next trips on the same basis and hope you have room for us when the time comes.


I think Holly and Jack missed you yesterday and today; whining at the front door rather than the stair gate. What turncoats! :o)".

Mrs. Helen Stead from Rushden, Northants - July 2010

"I have recently adopted 2 cats, and had considered placing them in a cattery for our weeks holiday, however with having to have days either side because of our

flight times, the total cost became quite expensive. Then I found out about Animals 24/7. After a couple of emails, one of the guys came to my house to meet the cats and let me interrogate him! Letting someone into your house when your away is a big decision, but immediately I knew there was nothing to worry about.


My cats were looked after fantastically, in fact I'm not sure they noticed I was away. The house was looked after as well, curtains were opened and closed and lights were

switched on and off. The most amazing thing was that they hoovered! 5 Star service. All for much less than the cattery would have cost. I recommenced them completely and will be booking them whenever I'm away from now on".

Miss. Emily Westwood, Grange Park, Northampton - July 2010

“I have 4 house bunnies, from various rescue backgrounds and they are incredibly precious to me (and suitably spoilt!). They’re used to a routine with plenty of fresh vegetables, freedom and play, so when my mum was unable to come and look after them whilst we were on holiday this year I was worried about what to do. I couldn’t put them in a kennels, as they don’t live in cages and would be very unhappy if forced to do so. So, I looked on the internet and came across Animals 24/7.


It turns out I needn’t have worried. Animals 24/7 came to the rescue and I was very impressed! Their home visit consultation was thorough and allowed me to meet one of the people who would be looking after my buns. Her knowledge, understanding and friendliness put my mind at ease and I was happy to leave my ‘kids’ in the care of Animals 24/7 for the week. I didn’t worry about them once whilst away, as I had discussed everything in advance and knew that Animals 24/7 would call me straight away if there were any problems. I chose for them to come to my house twice per day, and gave them instructions that I wanted them to follow, which they did. They even watered my plants for me whilst I was away and popped my key back through the letterbox at my request after I had returned!


If you want a service that is cheap as chips, choose another company to look after your pets. However, if it’s friendly, helpful, professional individuals that you are after, who will look after your animals and home whilst you’re away and provide a service that is worth every penny, choose Animals 24/7. I’ll be using them again.”



Mrs. Karen Sant from Welford, Northamptonshire - 2010

"My parents always used to ‘house sit’ when we went on holiday, and looked after my lovely 15 year old cat Zebu.


Unfortunately, they were unable to do it this year, so I had to find somebody to feed my cat. Zebu is also on a daily tablet for his kidney failure, so I needed somebody caring and reliable. I was lucky enough to find Animals 24/7, who although based over 40 miles away from my house, confirmed they would be happy to visit Zebu on a daily basis.


I met up with Animals 24/7 before my holiday to go through the requirements, and it was obvious that their main concern was my cat, and his welfare and happiness. I instantly felt comfortable and relaxed knowing that Zebu was going to be cared for during our 11 day holiday.


I was very anxious as he’d never been left before, and therefore, received text messages from Animals 24/7 with an update, which put my mind at rest and allowed me to enjoy my holiday.


Towards the end of our holidays, Animals 24/7 had a problem with our door lock and were unable to get in the house – but way beyond the call of duty; they obtained ladders from a neighbour to allow them access through the patio door. Without their determination and willingness, my cat would not have been fed!


When we came back, Zebu and the house were in great condition. There was also a fully typed report covering the assignment with Zebu which showed great professionalism.


I am really grateful that Animals 24/7 were happy to undertake the long drive backwards and forwards every day to look after Zebu, which I think shows great dedication.


We intend to go away again later in the year, and I will definitely be contacting Animals 24/7 again to look after my cat, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone".

Mrs Chris Wykes from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire - 2010

"I have just returned from a very enjoyable ten day holiday in Greece, made more so because of the knowledge I had that Rosie (my little girl cat) was in safe hands. Prior to the holiday I was very concerned about leaving her as she is now 20 years old and I did not want to take her away from her home. Due to Rosie’s age she stays indoors and is prone to incontinence so I did not feel that I was able to ask a neighbour or friend to look after her.


I made enquiries at my Veterinary Surgery who gave me a card for Animals 24/7 – Animal Care Services. From the moment I contacted them I received a friendly, caring and professional response that immediately put my mind at rest. They arranged an initial meeting to discuss my requirements and to meet Rosie. At this meeting a schedule was drawn up for home visiting and I was impressed as to how professional they were but also their concern that Rosie would be looked after properly.


On my return from holiday everything and more had been done for Rosie, the house was fresh and clean, no little accidents and Rosie seem very content.


They had also gone to the trouble of trimming Rosie’s fur (she is a long haired cat) around her bottom as they were concerned it was becoming matted and dirty and could lead to infections.


On their last visit they left me a report detailing everything that had been done and also giving me some good advice regarding Rosie’s diet etc. They even took the precaution of keeping the key to the house in case my flight was delayed and they would be able to get back in to feed Rosie.


I cannot recommend them enough and would be very happy to leave Rosie with them again".

Mrs L Macisaac from Earls Barton, Northamptonshire - 2009

"I was pleased to be recommended to Animals 24/7 after being unable to walk my dogs myself for 6 months. My dogs were as happy as ever knowing caring and reliable people were giving them their regular walkies. I have and would recommend them to anyone and have booked my holiday dates with them".

Miss J Graham from Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire - 2009

"Hello I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for taking such fantastic care of my dogs. I will recommend you guys to everyone and anyone who mentions pet walking, dog sitting etc. If i ever need you again i will be sure to call you guys as i know my dogs are in safe hands and i can go out now without worrying. Once again thank you".

Mr & Mrs Crew from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire - 2009

"We have been using Animals 24/7 for almost a year and have been very happy with all services provided. We have used this company for dog walking, house & pet sitting and also for pet taxis and have never experienced any problems. The service provided is reliable and punctual and we will continue to use Animals 24/7 in the future. I have also found the people from Animals 24/7 to be totally honest at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for animal services".

Mr & Mrs Hogan from Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire - 2009

“As my job has been relocated to Milton Keynes I was worried how my dog would be cared for as I could no longer get home at lunchtimes.


Animals 24/7 to the rescue. Not only do they provide an excellent dog walking service they also provide pet taxi (amongst many services) which I use when my dog has to be collected from the groomers.


I am secure in the knowledge that my dog is walked on a regular basis and a record is always left as to where he has been during his walk.


The guys at 24/7 are devoted to making pets happy and my dog is. He can't wait to see them”.

Mr P.O McEvoy from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire - 2008

"Ten days before Christmas 2008 I became acutely ill with the flu/virus that was doing the rounds at that time. Among other things this meant I was unable to take my dog for his daily walk. With a disabled wife and no other family member available to help; what to do. Panic. No contact Animals 24/7.


I obtained their details from their web site. Rang them before midday and by the afternoon Animals 24/7 were taking my dog for his daily walk every day from then on, until such time I felt up to resuming the walks myself. Animals 24/7 took my dog for his daily walks, including Christmas day and Boxing day.


The service provided by Animals 24/7 was excellent. It was provided by friendly courteous people who cared for and understood animals. Walking times were arranged to our mutual convenience. My dog looked forward to the Animal 24/7 people arriving and always returned from his walk happy and contented.


Animals 24/7 were a life saver in a time of need. I would recommend them to anyone and I look forward to using them again in the future".

Mr. D Hares from Wellingborough, Northants - 2008

"Absolutely great service. The initial visit was good and gave me confidence that my pets would be well looked after. Everything that was asked for was done. It was great to have my pets looked after in their own home. Animals 24/7 were so good that my pets didn't even miss me. Clearly these are people who love animals and want to provide the best possible service.


I would recommend Animals 24/7 to anyone and look forward to using them again".

Mrs. Toni Gent from Rushden, Northamptonshire - 2008

"I have been an ongoing customer for some time now with Animals 24/7. They have been walking and feeding my cocker spaniel dog and providing copious amounts of fuss (and feeding) my cat. I have to work away from home, often at short notice several times a month. I always hate to leave my pets, especially the dog as she can be quite neurotic in nature. I am always relieved when I get home, and Animals 24/7 have been as she is settled and happy. They also provide me with feedback from each visit which also gives me great peace of mind. You can’t choose a better service and I would be happy to recommend Animals 24/7 to everyone who cares about their pets well being".

Mr. D Everson from Rushden, Northamptonshire - 2008

"Animals 24/7 have been taking my dog a Boxer for walks three times a week. Marcus the Boxer looks forward for his walks and enjoys them".

Mrs. D Lovell from Irchester, Northamptonshire - 2008

"Since finding Animals 24/7, I now go out for the day knowing my dog is being walked by professional, reliable and above all else, caring people. Many Thanks".

Audrey J from Rushden, Northants - 2008

"We were very pleased with the efficient and friendly service offered by Animals 24/7. They recently cared for our three cats, they visited us for a consultation, during which we discussed the individual needs of our cats and a daily home visit was arranged. It gave us great peace of mind knowing that our cats were being cared for in their own home by such devoted animal lovers."

K. Crew from Wellingborough, Northants - 2008

"I contacted Animals 24/7 because I had injured my knee and needed to use the pet taxi service to get two dogs to the vet for neutering.


They arrived promptly the next morning, asked all relevant questions and took the dogs to the vet and collected them for us the same afternoon.


They reported the vets comments back to us and delivered the after surgery care instructions. Communication is excellent and we received a confirmation


Email the night before, which confirmed everything and gave a clear indication of prices so we knew exactly what was happening and how much it would cost."


"The dogs love the guy's from Animals 24/7 and we are now using them for dog walking too. We are very glad to have found a friendly and reliable service like this in our area."

V. Jane from Wymington, Bedfordshire - 2008

"Really pleased to have found someone that we can rely on to look after our puppy whilst we are out."
