Have you the tea poured?
Make yourself comfortable, you’re in for a journey through the life of Fetch Your Pet Needs.
The early years
Hi all, my name is Nikita and I started Fetch Your Pet Needs in 2016.
At the time I was working in the pet industry and had been doing some research into kibble for dogs, particularly the benefits of grain free dog food and what was currently available in the pet shops we’re all familiar with. Once I started, I was hooked.
It became clear that there was so much more to pet nutrition, that I was missing and that was missing in the industry. From that moment on – my focus was to educate myself and others and provide high-quality options for pet owners. My mam came on board straight-away and we worked hard to build an online offering of grain free food and pet related products nationwide.
I’ve been involved with Cara Rescue throughout this journey, and we have worked together in educating and improving the lives of the dogs that passed through the rescue with high quality food and supplements. To this day Cara Rescue is a charity that I hold dear to my heart and love to help with advice and support.
What happened next?
Our online footprint grew – my dad came onboard and now we really were a family run business. All your orders from processing to packing and to delivery is done by the family and our small extended team, who feel like family. We put care and attention to detail into all your orders simply because we love what we do and believe that your pet will love it too
In my research on canine nutrition, I came across the BARF diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food). The importance of a diet that is as close to the evolutionary diet of carnivores made complete sense to me. I was fascinated with the approach and worked with Irish raw suppliers and industry experts to grow my knowledge and understanding in the area. Since then, we are one of the largest pet shops offering a wide variety of raw options and advice on same.
After many years in the industry, working with Cara Rescue and tending to our 17 dogs – I’ve learnt a lot about various issues, ailments and conditions that can be linked to a dog’s diet. I began consulting in 2020 and have changed many dogs and dog owners lives to date. To know that I’ve helped so many dogs from a nutritional standpoint, to eliminate issues and ailments truly means the world to me.
My sister started helping with some day-to-day tasks around the same time and hasn’t looked back since – she puts a strong focus on certain products and aspects of what our customers look for. Our family have been a team that has worked together to provide pet owners with a range of products that we believe will change their lives for the better.
Where to now?
We continue to grow and stick to our core values of providing high quality options from food to toys and supplements to leads and all that’s left in between.
We wouldn’t be here without you and we want to thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for choosing Fetch Your Pet Needs and for your support throughout the years. We look forward to serving you for many more years to come.
Hopefully your tea hasn’t gone cold!
Our pleasure as always,
Nikita and the team at Fetch Your Pet Needs
