Doncaster cattery to introduce dog services

Axholme Cattery at Crowle, near Doncaster, is to add dog services to its repertoire after being acquired.

The well-established business, which sits on a site of 1.1 acres and includes living accommodation, has been bought by Jeremy and Diane Mitchell who have 25 years’ pet industry experience gained in both the UK and US.

Jeremy Mitchell said: “Axholme Cattery has a great reputation and we’re thrilled to have found the perfect home and business which will allow us to move back up north and continue our passion for pets.

“Our new business is called Walkers and Sitters and the cattery is very much at the heart of this. As well as looking after cats, we will be adding dog walking and dog behaviour consultations to the services on offer. Our aim is to take the cattery from a three-star licence to five-stars within our first year.”

Paul Williamson, managing director of commercial property specialist Ernest Wilson, added: “Catteries and kennels are a sector where we’ve completed a number of successful sales in recent months and we’re really pleased to have now sold Axholme Cattery, securing experienced new owners who have found their perfect lifestyle business some 230 miles from where they live now.

“It shows that if you know where you want to be and what you want to do, then buying a business is a great option and, with national reach, we can facilitate that.”
