Dog Walking; A lunchtime group walk (max 4 dogs) to exercise your pet while you are at work. We collect and return your dog from/to your home. Our walks are through fields and wooded areas, with plenty of opportunity for ball play for the energetic, or a sedate stroll for the older dogs. Towel dried if wet, water bowls are checked and, if required, food or a treat can be given before leaving your pet to sleep the afternoon away!

Pet to Vet taxi service; Collection, wait and return home for owners without transport. For disabled/housebound clients we can collect your pet and take them, with full instructions, to the vet.. stay with them in the surgery and return with meds and a consultation explanation for you.

Cat Feeding; For owners away on holiday we make home visits to care for cats/small animals in the comfort of their own home. Meds (insulin/nebuliser/tablets/ointments) can be administered if necessary.

I highly recommend Gina to cat lovers. She provides a fast response to advance bookings and is reliable and professional.
One of my cats requires daily medication due to a heart condition and I would not feel able to go on holiday and leave her without full
confidence in Gina's expertise and the knowledge that if either of my cats required medical treatment, she would recognise and deal with this appropriately.
Both of my cats are very relaxed on my return home and Gina always leaves an written update, which is helpful.
Thank you once again Gina for a 5-star service!

I have used Gina for many years; she is highly professional and reliable. She also genuinely cares about your pets, so I was happy to leave my slightly unwell cat in her care recently, knowing she would give him extra tlc and take action if he became unwell again.

Gina has once again (thank goodness!) looked after my three cats and two rabbits. The cats all have to have different diets and one of the rabbits has problems too, but Gina dealt with all their individual requirements and they were absolutely fine. It's great to know that I can leave my animals and house in Gina's hands with perfect confidence. The animals remain their usual relaxed selves, they are not stressed at all, and they are evidently very happy with Gina.

I have just returned from 2 weeks holiday to find a very contented and happy cat thanks to Gina. Couldn't recommended Gina more. I could really enjoy my holiday knowing that my cat and my house were both in good hands.

Will be using the company again very soon!

Gina has been looking after our cats for many years and always provides a wonderful service. She also feeds our garden wildlife and even brought leftovers for the fox, as well as supplying a new battery for our auto feeder. Highly recommended!

We have used Gina's Pat Patrol 4 times in about 18 months and always return to a happy and content cat. Gina and Sue have clearly earned her trust and make a fuss. The service is professional and value for money, with feedback left after visits. The house is always in good order on our return. I would recommend using Gina over using a cattery, especially for rescue animals (such as ours) who can be nervous.

Gina has been looking after our home and taking great care of our cats since they were kittens, the eldest is now sixteen and half years old. It's peace of mind for us knowing that she is coming into our home everyday while we are away. Such a fantastic, thoughtful and thoroughly professional service. Lucky us!

Couldn't have asked for a better service, it's nice to be able to leave the cats at home and not have to worry about them at all. Gina takes care of everything. Would highly recommend!

Gina's pet petrol has been amazing. She's reliably looked after my elderly house cat who has lots of health problems and it is such a relief knowing he is in safe hands! Gina goes above and beyond, and is so good with cats... mine loves her, and I know she always makes a fuss of him. I always come home from trips away to an immaculate house, empty litter tray and very happy, well fed cat!

Gina's Home & Pet Patrol Q&A

Gina's Home & Pet Patrol Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I have always loved animals, from a young age I would walk neighbours dogs (for love, not money!)
At 12 years of age I volunteered and worked as a helper (feeding, mucking out, exercising horses/ponies) at a local Horse Rescue center.
I always wanted to work with animals, but didn't think I'd get the chance, and found myself working in offices for several years. The opportunity to start my own business, doing what I loved the most, caring for animals, has made the last 27 years the happiest I've known... I never get that 'Monday morning' feeling!

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was made redundant (along with 250 others) when our branch of an engineering company was sold to a firm up north. I heard about a woman in Brighton, who offered a cat feeding service as an alternative to a cattery.. and a mental light bulb went on - the chance to do what I really loved! I invested my redundancy money in training, and advertising, and began delivering leaflets and the slow process of building a client base. I was the very first pet sitting company in Croydon, so there was lots of interest, and enquiries. Word of mouth helped, and I soon got to know the local vets, who asked me if I would collect their customers and bring them to the surgery, and also to train to give meds so their clients could have a holiday. Dog walking naturally followed on, Nowadays 95% of my referrals are from vets, which is marvelous.

Why should our clients choose you?

As Croydon's first, and longest established pet care company, and with recommendations from local veterinary surgeries, you can feel secure in the knowledge that your pet will be safe and well cared for in our hands. My (only) assistant has worked for me for 15 years, and came from a veterinary surgery herself.
Police checked, fully insured, longest established and with a wealth of glowing references, we won't be the cheapest in the business, but we are certainly the most experienced. We are a small, friendly business, not a big franchise. Unlike a franchise, we never use sign written vehicles which advertise the fact that you are away from home.
