Trustworthy, organised and great with man & beast – just a few of the qualities that this chap possesses. I am delighted that he looks after Bruno (and Bruno Loves him).

Well done, keep up the good work.

Steve took on my 2 cavapoos at very short notice for 24hrs. He was friendly and extremely professional …… but I’d already heard great things about him from another client. Actually I don’t think they wanted to come home!! Thanks Steve.

Steve is absolutely brilliant with our 2 mad springers. He has looked after them for some years during the holidays and sickness and I would thoroughly recommend him for all your pet hospitality needs.

A Fantastic Service

Have just arrived home after our holiday and am very impressed with the way Steve from AAH looked after our rather rotund and ageing cat Jim.

We really enjoyed reading the daily notes left about Jim's whereabouts, sun-bathing and bird-catching (thank-you to Steve also for clearing up the latter!)

An added bonus was knowing that the house was kept an eye on too; the post picked up.

Am so glad that we have booked again for our holiday later in the Summer which we will enjoy even more now, knowing that Jim is in safe and caring hands.

Fantastic Service

Animals at Home continued to provide a safe and harmonious environment for our cats when we went away on holiday. They were reliable and trustworthy, even leaving a surprise pint of milk for a cup of tea which was divine after a long plane journey. We returned home to two very happy and contented felines.

I have no hesitation in recommending Animals at Home - I only wish that we had found them sooner!

I have been using Steve for several years now and trust him completely with my 2 cats. I wouldn’t use anyone else! Steve has a natural affinity with animals and has spent ages getting my rescue cats to feel comfortable with him. Nothing is too much trouble. I highly recommend.

I can't speak highly enough of AAH, Stephen's passion for all animals is evident in his enthusiasm for offering a really great service ranging from popping in to feed your pet to arranging for his carefully vetted hosts to care for your friend if you're away. It's so reassuring to know that when you can't be there for your pet, Stephen is. Best pet care service I've found in Colchester.
