A Few Words About Newport Pet Services

Welcome to Newport Pet Services and thank you for visiting our page. My name is Sara and I am a lifelong animal lover and pet owner. I set up Newport Pet Services to provide the residents of Newport (Shropshire) and the surrounding areas with a fully insured, reliable, trustworthy and friendly pet sitting service with a strong focus on treating client’s pets with the same love and care as I would treat my own.

I am a born and bred Shropshire “lass” , in fact, my family have lived in the Newport area for over 400 years.

I have always remained local to the area and, indeed, completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at the University of Wolverhampton, graduating with Honours in 2009 with a 2:1.

I am passionate about animals and my siblings and I grew up with a variety of cats, dogs, guinea pigs, mice and, of course, the obligatory childhood goldfish! As an adult, I have kept cats, chinchillas, dogs, chickens, degus and a horse, so can honestly say I have never been without animals in my life. Currently, my partner and I share our home with four cats, a three-legged dog, and a flock of ex-battery hens.

You will see their photos quite often throughout our website and our social media accounts as I view my pets’ adventures as an integral part of my business – if my clients can see how happy and healthy my own animals are, they are more likely to trust me with their beloved pets – it’s as simple as that!


Although I have always had animals, I have not always worked with them and instead spent almost 9 years working for the Police and, later, for a crime prevention initiative run by the London Mayor’s Office for Policing & Crime (MOPAC). Most of these years were spent as a civilian Crime Prevention Officer and I qualified as both a Crime Prevention Practitioner and an Architectural Liaison Practitioner in 2014. Although, I have come away from the world of policing now, I still like to support my “blue light” family where I can and have been proud to offer a discount to emergency services/armed forces personnel from day one.

When I set up Newport Pet Services in 2018, my original intention was to run the business alone for a few years before taking on a member of staff. However, I built up such a good reputation and such a large client base in such a short space of time that by the summer of 2019 I was ready for some help! Sammy joined me as a dog walker that year with Paula completing our little team six months later. It is an absolute pleasure to work with such dedicated animal lovers and I get wonderful feedback from clients about the hard work, dedication, love, and compassion that Sammy and Paula show their pets every day. I feel truly blessed to have such a great team!
