Meet the team:

Ruth: Store Manager


I enjoy meeting the customers we have in store and helping them find the products that they after. I am also a big fan of guinea pigs and dogs.

Becci: Pet Sales Advisor

I've always loved animals and all things animal related. I love working at the Ark Pet Centres and helping people find both new family members and everything they need to take the best care of their pets. I'll admit I do get a little excited when a new item arrives that I think one of my own furbabies will love. I have my own dogs, budgies, a very noisy cockatiel and a fish tank to keep me busy at home. My dogs love me coming home with new toys and treats and never object to me using them as test subjects to see a new treat or toy is likely to be a hit with dogs or not!

Shannon: Pet Sales Advisor

I feel as though I have found my ideal job here at the ark as I get to work with the animals that I love, mainly all of the reptiles! I love passing on my knowledge to the customers and seeing them get the same pleasure of keeping these animals as I do! I have 2 African Pygmy Hedgehogs, a Lop Rabbit, an African Grey, Syrian Hamsters, Russian Hamsters, Tropical Fish, a selection of Crested Geckos and Leopard Geckos and a English Bull Terrier. I have a Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care, a Level 2 Animal Nursing Assistant Certificate and I am currently in the process of doing the ornamental aquatic trade association qualification (OATA).

Jess: Pet Sales Advisor

I love working at the Ark as I love being hands on with the animals and talking to people about their animals and sharing information. The best part is knowing someone has chosen us to get the new animal(s) that will be joining their family. I currently share my house with 2 Guinea Pigs, 2 Budgies, A Leopard Gecko and a very Excitable Border collie. I have an NVQ Level 1 in Small Animal Care, a Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care and a Level 3 - Diploma in Animal Management.

Kevin: Driver

Being a delivery driver and pet sales advisor gives me a great understanding of the pets and customers needs. Also caring for two Bearded Dragons, a Corn snake , a dwarf lop eared rabbit, three dogs and three fish tanks as my own hobby brings work and pleasure together, giving me great work satisfaction. I love working at The Ark Pet Center meeting customer's and helping with their pet's.

Adrienne: Pet Sales Advisor

Working at The Ark has given me confidence in myself and it's a very welcoming place to work because of the positive and friendly atmosphere. I enjoy meeting new people and seeing them leave happy after I've helped them. I also love caring for the animals here.
