Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this well presented boarding kennels & cattery which has been established since the 1970’s and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 10 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to a desire to take well deserved retirement.

Since our clients took ownership of the business they have run the business at a pace that suits their lifestyle, meaning that there is a massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business.

Our clients inform us that the annual turnover currently runs at £80,000 which is derived from offering well equipped and well maintained dog and cat boarding facilities and services throughout the year such as grooming and rehabilitation using their hydrotherapy pool.

Our clients have worked exceptionally hard in maintaining the superb reputation the business enjoys for quality of service which has contributed to both a very consistent and reliable trade throughout the years.

The business has always enjoyed exceptional levels of repeat custom with many customers returning year on year.

Our clients are very generously including all fixtures and fittings into the sale price which is a huge plus for a new owner as additional funds will not need to be spent for the foreseeable future.

We would like to urge very early interest in this opportunity as kennels and catteries of this quality rarely appear on the market
