finchley pet people

Our community is made up of lots of brilliant and committed people who care tremendously for their own and other people's pets.  Here is our very small notice board style directory of some of the people that we know in Finchley and the surrounding area.


Let us know if there is anyone who you think deserves to be on the list and we will try to arrange to meet them ourselves.  Or maybe you would like to be listed yourself, in which case, please get in touch it would be great to meet you.  (Just for clarity - the listing of a business here does not mean that we are making a recomendation to you about the quality of their service - please make sure you ask for references and canvas the feedback from other customers before entrusting anyone with your pet).
