Growing up we always had dogs in our family. I started my career in the Construction Industry and spent years working alongside my Dad. When I was looking for a new challenge it was a great opportunity to combine my management skills with my love of pets.

Being given the privilege to take care of people’s pets each day is quite the honour and one that we take really seriously. I look forward to getting to meet you and your pets soon.

Kate McQuillan

OWNER AND CONTENT/SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER

With a background in Business Management and Market Research I moved to Ireland in 1999. After several years in the corporate world I was able to combine my business experience with my love of animals. Living in County Carlow I get to enjoy the countryside with my husband Mike, 2 Dogs Coco and Joey, Cat Smug and 3 Donkeys and a Turtle. All of which are very much loved and spoilt. Through our website I enjoy sharing information about pets and pet services in Ireland, and particularly enjoy chatting to all our Facebook followers.

Judith Anne Murphy

After growing up in Kilkenny I pursued a career in Travel and Aviation and lived abroad in Singapore, Denmark and the UK, finally returning to Kilkenny in 2005. During my career in Aviation I spent much of my time in an Operations role. I love spending time with my husband and dog Belle, who is one on the many dogs I have rescued over the years, as well as countless Fosters Dogs. I also have been known to enjoy horse riding and really love taking Belle for long walks every day. I look forward to chatting with you soon and helping you with your pet care needs.

DUBLIN FRANCHISEE

I am from Slovakia but have been living in Ireland for over 4 years now. I am from family of three kids. We always had some type of pet when we were younger, hamsters, mice, fish, birds, dogs or cats. Besides taking care of our own pets we were always helping in local animal shelters as much as we could.  I love to work with animals because I like to observe how different they are. Every single dog or cat has its own unique personality and I love how spontaneous and grateful they are. In my spare time I like to spend my time outdoors, doing sports or playing guitar. And of course I try to spend as much time as possible with my dog Nina as she is very active and needs a lot of exercise. I am passionate about the Brazilian culture, food and music. I lived in Brazil for some time, working as a volunteer, and I am fluent in Portuguese.

I am originally from Slovakia, but I am living in Ireland for over 10 years. I have a 6 years old son named Oliver and when I was growing up we always had a dog or a cat. We even had hamsters too. I love being around animals because they have such a calming effect and they reload my energy after a hard day. My son loves animal too and is very caring and gentle with them. I think growing up with animals has a lot of benefits. Presently we have a 1 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. Her name is Nina and she is a member of our family too.
