Huge Welcome to Paw Pals Reading East!

Monday 1 February 2016

A Huge Welcome to Ros Forrester, our newest Paw Pals Franchisee!

Ros launched her new business, Paw Pals Reading East, on 1 February 2016 and provides an array of pet care to all types of pets across the local area where she has lived most of her life.
Friends, family and local residents marked the launch of the business with a celebratory dog walk in the Thames Valley Park followed by a ‘meet and greet’ with Ros over a well earned cuppa and cake.

Ros explains, “I worked for over 13 years for the NHS Blood and Transplant department before being made redundant last year. Although it was a worrying and uncertain time, it was the push I needed to follow my dream of working with animals and running my own business”. 
With little entrepreneurial experience, Ros researched franchising. Paw Pals seemed to fit the bill perfectly; as well as full, initial business set up, support and ongoing advice, most importantly the brand’s focus on providing exemplary pet care and welfare and great customer service complimented Ros’s own beliefs and ethics.
Ros - Paw Pals Reading East
With such a passion for animals, pets have always played a huge part in family life – dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, fish, hamsters and even stick insects have been owned in the past! Their current brood include Bailey the Labra-doodle, moggies Susie and Binks, Neville and Roco the guinea pigs and Bear the hamster. Daughter Kirsten is also trained in dog and cat nutrition and is qualified in Horse Management. So not matter what pet you have, they will be in safe hands with Paw Pals!
Ros is trained in pet first aid, police checked, fully insured to look after your pets and home and is a member of the Pet Industry Federation, a trade association promoting excellence across the UK Pet Industry. Ros is also licensed and inspected annually by the local authority, so she can provide a boarding service for your pets in her own home.
