EMERGENCY PET CARE – LIFETIME RESIDENTIAL CAT & DOG CARE – PLEASE GET IN TOUCH – We never know when illness may strike and if the worst happens who will look after a beloved cat or dog?   Pet Samaritans have been ‘here to help for over twenty five years.   We give priority to pets who are bereaved or whose owners have had to go into hospital or a care home.

We take in cats, dogs, small animals and even ponies at times.   We never put any healthy pet to sleep and ensure that they have a happy and comfortable life.  It’s home from home with the very best of care, love and affection.

We have residential care facilities and our ‘golden oldies’ can stay with us for the rest of their lives.   Lillie and Frankie, shown below’ came in to us a year ago when their owner passed away.  These little sisters are both in their mid-teens and were sorry for themselves when they first arrived.  They had been left home and alone and didn’t know what was happening.

Lots of fuss and cuddles and dainty meals soon built them up again.  They had a health check with the vet and after a shampoo and set they looked different again.  We have full central heating and they have their own room which is cosy and comfy with duvets, fleeces, cushions and toys – they love idogs - lil & frank 3 - 1

Cristo’s owner was too ill to care for him, he is an elderly Chinese Crested dog with a fantastic personality.  He’s been with us for the past couple of years.  Although Cristo has some health problems (he has a heart murmur) he is still sprightly and has a good quality of life.

We are an organic farm with plenty of land and younger and larger dogs can have as much as exercise as they need.  Cats too, are loved and well cared for, we have some very elderly lady cats who have been with us for years.
