On Sunday 29 June, I tweeted Theo about our pet sitting business during ‘Small Business Sunday’, an initiative set up by Theo that runs weekly.
To my utter delight, Theo re-tweeted my message to his 260,000 followers and as a result we are now profiled on a new website www.theopaphitissbs.com, that is exclusive to Small Business Sunday winners!
I really hope that this recognition will help to promote animal welfare and encourage more people to adopt their pets, rather than buy. This is also why we now offer discounts to people who have re-homed their pets, along with senior citizens who would rather keep their pets at home while they are on holiday .
It is wonderful to have support from Theo and Doug (my business partner), and I are ‘over the moon’, to be recognised for our hard work and to help spread the word about what we do.
We cannot wait to meet Theo personally to collect our Small Business Award and a may even cheekily ask him to give his backing to Pupaid, a petition started by Marc Abraham to help ban the sale of young puppies and kittens unless their mother are present.
