Meet Donna and Jeff Garratty – Your Trusted Pet Care Partners

A Journey into Pet Care

Welcome to First For Pets, where your pets become part of our family. We are Donna and Jeff Garratty, and we’re thrilled to introduce ourselves as the proud owners of this pet care business. Nestled on the outskirts of the picturesque cathedral City of Lichfield, we share our home with a furry family of our own. Timmy, our charming cat, Jasmine, our loyal black Labrador, Poppy, our beloved adopted Toy Poodle, and our two chirpy budgies, Ross and Chandler.

A Frustration that Sparked a Mission

First For Pets was born out of our own frustrations. We understand firsthand the challenges of finding reliable, high-quality pet care while juggling work commitments or planning a holiday. We firmly believe that people and their pets deserve better. So, fueled by our passion for animals and a genuine desire to provide exceptional service, we embarked on a journey to create the safest, most professional, and compassionate pet care experience for you and your furry companions.

Commitment to Excellence and Ongoing Training

To ensure that we deliver the highest standards of care, we have undergone extensive training at an RCVS veterinary hospital. Our qualifications include expertise in administering medication, including insulin, as well as comprehensive training in first aid, animal handling, hygiene, and pet nutrition. Additionally, we hold City & Guilds qualifications in pet care and dog walking, providing you with the utmost peace of mind. We stay updated with the latest industry best practices and advancements to deliver exceptional care tailored to your pet’s specific needs.

Learning from the Most Amazing Pets

Since starting our pet care journey, we have had the privilege of loving and caring for an incredible array of pets. Each furry friend has taught us invaluable lessons and enriched our understanding of the diverse needs and personalities of animals. We genuinely appreciate the trust you place in us to care for your home and your beloved pets. Rest assured, we never take that trust for granted.
