Ethical Pets is run by Joey and Anna, who started the store in 2011. We are a small internet business, run from home (so we get to hang-out with our pets all day long!) We have grown steadily over the years and we still love what we do.
Joey was studying for a Masters in Animal Behavior, but the he contracted meningitis and was very ill for several years. Ethical Pets was partly set up so he could work again: in the past few years he has made leaps and bounds with his recovery and is now getting towards normality once again. Ethical Pets was really borne out of his tenacious passion for perfection. He played rugby league for GB students and now plays Union for the local team, Clitheroe RFU. He is a St. Helens and Aston Villa fan and loves Star Trek, reading and eating biscuits. His favorite colour is yellow.
Anna is a jack-of-all trades: she does most of the computer related stuff for Ethical Pets, including the website design, blogging, newsletters etc. Ethical Pets was shaped further by her artistic skills and bossy nature. She enjoys singing, reading, gardening and BBC Radio 4. Her favorite colour is orange.
Joey and Anna met at university in Bangor and have been together for seven years - they hope one day to have an animal sanctuary and eco-home in the countryside.
The web-design was done by James, a friend of the family, who has a passion for animation and plays the guitar. His favourite colour is a secret!
