imageMy name is Sarah, I live in Horwich with my partner David and our 2 dogs Maddie and Dolly. My commitment to you is to provide a reliable, welcoming service from a truly dedicated animal lover. At 16 I rescued Max, our cat, who at the time was feral, this began my interest in feral cats and I went on to volunteer for Cats Protection League. During my time with CPL I specialised in the socialisation of feral cats and gained a wide range of knowledge in their welfare.

Until 2010 I was employed by Guide Dogs for the Blind, working in the kennel environment providing care for up to 30 dogs in training. I also spent my childhood growing up with qualified Guide Dogs. 

I started Paws 4 Thought in 2009, David made the leap and joined the business full time in 2016!

We are fully qualified in Animal First Aid and I also have a diploma in Animal Communications. I have attended many courses including Dog Law and TTouch.
