About Us – How Pet Pad Was Born

The idea of Pet Pad came about when my fiancé and I decided to combine our two loves.

We are website designers by trade, and absolutely love animals, so we thought we would create something that brought our two passions together……. and Pet Pad was born.


Who Are We?

Simon & Fern

Simon is close to mid-forties, was brought up in the country in an environment where pets are the norm, so our family has had many pets of all shapes and sizes.

Fern is late thirties and was also raised on acreage and had an assortment of pets to feed, love, and watch roam the property.

Between us our families have had a huge number of pets over the years and our love for animals has only grown stronger.

This hands-on personal experience with all these different animals will help us make PetPad.net the home of pet lovers online.

What we don’t know about Pets, we heavily research before posting any article to ensure that we are providing the most accurate and up to date information available.

Please note though, that we are not vets, so any type of medical question needs to be directed at your local Veterinarian.

No one pet is the best, with so many different personalities and sizes in pets (and humans) there is always something out there to suit you.

If you love exercise and running, perhaps a dog would be a good match for you, maybe you are not active and like being indoors, perhaps a cat or a bird would be more your style.

Whatever pet you choose, if you love it and nurture it, you will get unconditional love.
