Super pet care -Dog walking

Pet assist came to my rescue at very short notice but still managed to come and meet the pets and myself before I had to go away for a few days.
Jane and Sean were so helpful and flexible- nothing was too much trouble.
I would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future 馃榾

Great Service – rabbit boarding

So pleased I came across Pet Assist Animal Care. They offer a friendly professional service and they clearly love all animals. Our rabbit came back happy and chilled, will definately be using them again!

Julia Sellers

Great friendly service

Jane and Shaun pet sat for our two miniature dachshunds while me and my wife were at a wedding. They stepped in at short notice when our previous plans fell through. Our shy dogs responded well to their friendly personalities and we felt at ease with leaving Rufus and Ralph for the night. It helped us to enjoy our evening out safe in the knowledge they were in good hands. Jane sent a text to let us know the boys had settled. I would definitely use pet assist in the future.

Cat and kitten care – We went away for a break

We went away for a few days and had arranged for pet assist animal care to visit twice a day. While we were away we received some photos plus texts from Jane which was reassuring. On our return we found our cat and her 2 kittens happy and relaxed. It is good to know that someone is able to come and care for our pets in their own home.

We used pet assist taxi service to collect our Airedale from the vets after surgery. Jane was really helpful and accommodating, great communication and everything went like clockwork. I would definitely recommend them.

Thank you

Thank you so much for looking after the girls so beautifully.

Nicola Elson

Great help

Shaun walked my dog for 3 weeks whilst on holiday.
From reports from my Mum who was housing him for the duration the dog got very excited before each walk and had no issues.
Although everything went well, my only grumble was that we agreed a time frame around 9am each day but it wasn’t until 10.30 some days that he got walked, with dogs they like routine.
I’d highly recommend Shaun and will use him again!


Reply from Pet Assist Animal care:

Thank you for using our service, Charlie is a lovely boy. On the paperwork I received back there was no time specified on the booking sheet.聽 So in view聽 of this we visited your mum prior to starting and it was agreed聽 the walks would be anytime between聽 9.30am-10.30am and 3.30-4.30pm.聽 As you can imagine its difficult to meet times dead on, as we travel between jobs and traffic is a nightmare to navigate聽 around this area. Our base is over the other side of Scarborough which can take 10 mins sometimes and yet other times聽 it can take up to 30 mins to get over to your side of Scarborough.聽 So in view of this we always suggest a window with an approximate time.聽 We do try our best and we will take on board your comments and try beat the clock net time. Thank you, and love to Charlie.聽 聽Jane and Shaun.

Very reliable, nice people! - cat care visits

Thank you for looking after my unfriendly cat, Pixie, it's good to have reliable cat carers, much nicer than the stress of a cattery, it put my mind at rest knowing she was being looked after at home.

Lubie - cat visits and care at my home

I am so grateful to have found Pet Assist. It was reassuring that Jane and Shaun kept in touch every day that I was away. I would have no qualms about leaving my beloved cat in their care again. I even met their own beautiful cats and dogs and it is obvious that they are animal lovers.

We went away for a couple nights for a wedding and used the overnight stay plus pet walking services. The service offered was great and we felt our dogs were in great (and safe) hands. Will use again if needed

Fantastic!! Guinea pig boarding

Pet assist is brilliant! Jane and Shaun took amazing care of my two guinea pigs while I was away for 4 weeks. I would definitely recommend them. You can go away with the peace of mind that your pet is in safe hands. The prices are pretty reasonable too! Definitely planning to use Pet Assist for my next holiday!!

A weight off my mind while we were away - cat home visits

Our Reggie is a rescue cat and we were nervous about leaving him when we went away for a weekend but needn't have worried. He took to Jane instantly when she came to see us and collect the key so I knew he'd be fine. The text messages telling us that she'd carried out the visits and that he'd been friendly towards her were very much appreciated.

It's so valuable to find someone you can trust when your cat has previously had bad experiences with people. Jane's brilliant!

Part of the Pet assist family - Toby - cat visits

Jane and Shaun at Pet assist have looked after our cat Toby on many occasions while we have been away. We know he is in excellent hands and we can have total peace of mind, which is a wonderful thing. They are true animal lovers and treat Toby as though he is one of their own beloved pets. Don't know what we would do without them, to be honest!

Judith Hilton

Caring animal lovers and good value for money

I have a 16-year-old Lhasa Apso who is very nervous and easily gets distressed. As kennels are no longer an option for her I asked Pet Assist to make regular visits to check on her while my husband and I were away for a few days. I'm pleased to say that on our return she is showing no signs of stress or anxiety. In fact I don't think she even noticed we'd been away! Thank you, Jane and Shaun, for taking such good care of her. I will definitely be using your services again.

Trisha Cole

Excellent care for our cats

Pet Assist really looked after our cats well while we were away for a few days. We received reassuring updates by text, they put photos on Facebook too. Excellent professional and caring service.img_2965img_2967

Dog walking - Murphy

I have used the services of Pet assist since September this year to help me with my pup, Murphy. Jane came to visit to familiarise both of us with the dog and my requirements. She was/is lovely ! I was immediately put at ease about having to work and leaving my little dog alone. Since then, Murphy has enjoyed regular walks and I have peace of mind. As a supply teacher, my work can come at short notice, but Jane has always been able to fit us in and she always lets me know how Murphy has been (and what he has done-sorry, but essential knowledge) by text. I think she offers a great service and I am totally happy with Murphy's care. 10/10 Pet assist!img_4597img_4615

Reliable, lovely dog walkers

We contacted Jane and her partner at short notice and she was happy to help. Really lovely couple, felt really at comfortable around them and so did my dogs. I have 2 big dogs and they were more than comfortable with them. Will be using them every time I come to Scarborough and would happily recommend

Digger's review of Pet Assist - Dog walking

Shaun walks my dog Digger for an hour or half an hour a day 4 days a week. Digger loves him and enjoys his walks. Shaun and Jane from Pet Assist are very helpful and totally reliable and I would recommend them to any dog owner who needs help with their animal.digger2

Christine Watson

Thank You Pet Assist 馃檪 Cat care home visits

Pet Assist looked after my much loved 18 year old cat for 3 weeks while we were abroad and I am pleased to report he was fit and well on our return. Pre-visits to outline what care Tom needed were no trouble, and they appear to have thought everything through for what they do.
Bottom line is, I would use them again and I am certain Tom would prefer that to going to the cattery which is what he has done previously.
Thanks again Jane & Shaun 馃檪
