4 Little Paws is a small family run pet care service based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
Lauren, the founder of 4 Little Paws is a vegan and is very passionate about animal welfare, she has volunteered for various animal rescue charities over the last 17 years. Lauren is about to complete a foundation degree in Animal Science, studied at Nottingham Trent University
Through 4 Little Paws she hopes to raise the profile of little pets, and raise awareness about acre and welfare. She enjoys fundraising for local charities in her spare time. She grew up with lots of family pets around her including dogs, cats, hamsters, fish and rabbits and is a pet owner herself. She has 5 cats and 6 rabbits. Her 6 bunnies are couple "Chamomile" and "Peppermint", couple "Parsley" and "Rosemary"' and couple "Walnut" and "Trixie Hazelnut", and they have the special job of testing out all the rabbit toys and treats, and only those meeting their approval are used by 4 Little Paws!
Lauren would like to urge anyone thinking of getiing a new pet, to consider their local animal resuces before heading to a shop. Did you know there are over 33,000 rabbits in resuces UK wide waiting for a home?! Lauren says: "Please don't breed, don't buy - adopt!" 4 Little Paws is 100% pro rescue and does not support breeding or selling of pets, whilst the numbers of animals waiting for homes in resuces centres nationwide is so high. We help one of our local rescues (Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity) by fostering rabbits.

Our bespoke range of rabbit hutches and runs, meeting the standards of the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund, are spacious and secure. We have signed the RWAF's Retailer Charter to pledge that we will never sell small or unsuitable rabbit hutches.
4 Little Paws also provide holiday care serivces for little pets and a dog walking service. We have a small pet boarding centre based in Treeton, Rotherham and provide a pet sitting service in Sheffield and Rotherham for little pets and cats. To find out more about these services click here.
Because we are so passionate about animal welfare, we use some of our boarding hutches to house rescue and foster rabbits, to help our local resuce Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity. To find out about our rescue and rehoming work, visit our foster rabbit pages.
