Easter holidays are upon us again and it’s time to publish our opening hours for Easter weekend. A little different this year due to the recent change to our opening times for Monday mornings.

Unfortunately this site was recently hacked by someone who considers it hilarious to redirect visitors (many of them children on these pages!) to porn sites. Oh, how every one laughed and I am sure the hacker’s kudos amongst his peer group went up no end when they saw how wonderfully witty he was. Obviously it could have been the porn sites themselves or someone working for them but I don’t think that makes them a better person really.
However just because he spends all his time surfing for porn, it doesn’t mean the rest of us want to. So we have removed the spam redirects and cleaned up the pages, restored our own content and brought the site back on line with some additional security features to try to prevent a re-occurrence. That’s probably impossible, these hackers seem to have much more time on their hands than I do (yes I am aware that the “work” is done by programmes that scan the web for sites to attack), I’m too busy trying to make an honest living but we will do our best.
It will probably take a couple of weeks for the Google warning “This site has been hacked” to come off our listing but the review process is in hand.
If these morons would spend as much time trying to create something worthwhile, rather than destroying someone else’s work I am sure the world would be a better place but then you can’t cure stupid.
Angell Pets February suppliers offers are now in store and on line. On top of this we have our own fantastic bargains for the rest of the month (or at least whilst stocks last. Here is (I think, I could have missed something) the complete list.
Angell Pets is staffed by family members but we still seem to have a lot of staff changes. George recently left ot work abroad and Billie went from part time to full time.
Kim is now leaving Angell Pets in the next couple of months. Kim’s previous employment has been in education in a learning support role. She worked for some years in a behavioural referral unit in Cheltenham and then Cam. When George left to work in the Seychelles for a year she came to us full time to cover for him. On his return she stayed on whilst he finished his degree. Now he has moved on and Billie is with us full time Kim has decided the time is right to return to work in education.
She attended her first interview in over seven years the other day and was the successful applicant for a role in a private specialist school for children with autism. It is a role she is very well trained for and that she enjoys and of course it has the added bonus that someone else now has to pay her wages!
She will still be involved in the business but in a much more ad hoc cover role. All at Angell Pets wish her good luck in her new job.
Angell Pets has some of the most highly qualified and experienced staff of any pet shop. The wide range of experience has been gained over many years from a variety of sources. However you cannot gain the experience we have from remaining in the shop all the time.
George has already gained experience with a range of animals from around the world, having visited China, Thailand, Africa, the Seychelles and Assumption Island and most of Europe. On Sunday he sets off again on a new adventure to New Zealand to work in conservation over there. This follows on from the work he was involved with in 2013/2014 for the Seychelles Island Federation on avian conservation. So with George leaving us for at least a year we have had to have a shift round of staff.
Billie has just completed her business A levels and has now joined us full time on a nationally recognised Level 3 animal care and management apprenticeship scheme. She will be taking over many of the duties of her brother in helping to manage the shop. With Billie in the shop during the week alongside Kim I should now be able to focus on other areas of the business such as marketing, after sales support and other important stuff like writing more care sheets, boarding and deliveries.
Albert has agreed to take over Billies previous duties on Saturdays and Henry continues with his existing hours during the week and on Sundays. Both Henry and Albert are just about to start their A levels.
So despite George jetting off again we will be able to continue as usual, offering all the services we currently offer, such as boarding, free local delivery, nail clipping, qualified advice and one of the widest ranges of pet products in Gloucestershire (and some of the best prices too!).
Pet shop Gloucester July offers are now in store and on line. Some great offers on some of our most popular poroducts as well as some new stuff.
