Client Testimonials


Alexa - testimonials

My dealings with Helen professionally were outstanding. She was very honest, trustworthy and reliable. My cat Alexa had kidney disease and needed daily sub-q hydration therapy, which required a slow drip of saline and a needle! Needless to say, Alexa wasn’t too cooperative about this procedure, but Helen chased her down every day and gave her the treatment. I knew how difficult this was (I had to chase her myself every day when I was home!), but Helen was always so positive and cheery about it all. My animals are my babies, and I knew I had found someone who understood how much care and love they needed.

If you have a pet with kidney disease who needs sub-Q therapy and extra TLC, Helen is your pet sitter!

I have known Helen since 2015 when she was recommended by a friend when I was looking for someone reliable and trustworthy to look after my much loved cat Charlie when I went on holiday. She came to meet us and it was love at first sight with Helen and Charlie ……. and I felt totally comfortable and at ease leaving her with our key and leaving him in her trust. Lovely to be able to leave him in his environment knowing that he would be so well cared for. Helen loves all animals and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Blaze, Pixel and Melin - testimonials

We went away over night and needed someone to feed and let my 3 dogs out. I have to say you have have been brill. I know they are not the easiest, as they are very bouncy and playful but they are very happy dogs. Also my 5 guinea pigs are very happy too. I don’t trust many people with my pets as there are so many scary stories out there but I’ve know Helen for about 6 years now and she is an amazing lady with a huge love of animals. From the moment she came to do a meet and greet with my babies I knew they liked her and I always trust my dogs instincts. Will definitely be using again in the future. Thank you so much

Rabbits - testimonials

Helen has looked after our four bunnies for the last 5 years. She cares deeply about animals and has a lot of experience. Over the years, she has given our disabled bunny her twice daily medication, noticed one of the bunnies wasn’t eating and got her straight to the vet, and successfully rounded up all four of bunnies when they were unwilling to go away after some supervised free-ranging time – which is not an easy task!
Thanks Helen!

cats - testimonials

From the moment I first met Helen I could see how much she cared for animals. I always felt confident knowing that my cats would be well looked after whenever I went away. They had twice daily visits and Helen spent time with them making sure they were happy and had everything that they needed. I would highly recommend using Helen if you ever need your pets looking after.

Helen and the girls looked after my parrots and rabbit for years. I always referred to it as their holiday, whilst I was away. I never worried about them as I knew they were being looked after first class.

bunnies - testimonials

Helen (the bunny woman) has looked after our rabbit Orlando twice now. The first time was in August and the second this week (October). We asked Helen if she could find him a little friend and she did just that! A lovely rescue bunny, Barney!
I Would recommend this lady to anyone to look after their pet, just as Helen was recommended to me. Good luck Helen, carry on your good work and we’ll let you know when the next holiday is booked!!!

Damon - testimonials

I heard about Animal Crackers through Sheffield forum in 2008. Helen visited us to meet Damon and I immediately knew that she was the right person for the job; Damon is a rescue and can be a little nervous around new people, she knew exactly what to do to make him comfortable and relaxed, he not the easiest dog to deal with due to dog aggression problems, but I feel secure that Helen has the professional knowledge and experience to deal with this.

Damon is walked and fed for a two hour sessions and Helen has been really flexible fitting in extra times when required. Helen leaves a note to say what they have been up to and Damon seems really happy and contented when I return. I’ve been very happy with the service and would recommend Animal Crackers to anyone who wants the best care for their pet. I know Damon loves her visits!



Duke - testimonials

Hi Helen,

Thanks again for looking after our Bengal, Duke. He is really precious to us and I know that you give him the best care and attention that he needs. It’s really nice to have found someone so quickly who is completely trustworthy and we can go away with peace of mind, knowing that our precious boy will be looked after properly. Thanks again.
