Who are we?
We are a small close-knit team who love animals. Polly’s Pet Care Services started in Chislehurst in 2008. The team in Chislehurst is led by Sam.
All members of staff care passionately about our furry and scaly friends. Each person is carefully recruited, referenced and DBS checked and trained. They are all reliable and flexible. They take time to create a care plan that works best for you and your pet’s needs.

Polly’s Pet care
David loves all creatures great and small, both furry and scaly. He is a true animal lover who is endlessly patient and loving. From a young age, David has wanted to work with animals and has been part of Polly’s Pet Care team since 2011. During that time has cared for hundreds of dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises, ducks and snakes.
He has a National Diploma in Animal Management level 3 and is interested in doing a grooming qualification. David grew up with two Staffys and currently has a Cocker Spaniel called Mr Darcy and a cat called Suki. His Spaniel, Darcy, was seriously ill with a neurological condition where he lost the ability to walk. Darcy had major surgery and David was dedicated to his recovery and rehabilitation with regular physio. Now Darcy is back to his normal bouncy self running around with his friends!
