Meet Emma & Neil, our wonderful owners of Petpals York. After meeting in 2013 in Buckinghamshire and realising they shared the same passion for animals, Emma and Nigel relocated to Yorkshire to start a new adventure together and take over ownership of Petpals York.

Looking after animals is second nature to Emma & Neil, who together have two dogs, Wynnie the Staffie and Bella a 3-legged German Shepherd rescue dog. They also gained a lot of experience looking after another pet who “owned them”, Jake the Belgian Shepherd. Jake was disabled and they dedicated themselves to taking good care of him and giving him the life he deserved.

Emma is qualified in animal welfare management and both Emma and Neil have a wealth of knowledge and experience in caring for pets.
Petpals York offer dog walking, cat sitting, pet sitting, puppy care and elderly dog visits. Both Emma & Neil are DBS checked, insured and trained in pet first aid for your peace of mind offering a top quality service to new and existing customers alike.

Petpals’ regular visits to your home while you are away also serve as a security measure. We can remove post, open and close curtains or blinds, put out the bins, and water plants, all of which suggests the house is still occupied.
