Celebrating reptiles this week at Not Just Pets!

Our exciting open days as part of National Pet Month continue this Saturday 19th April with reptiles and exotic animals taking centre stage.

If you have not made it to one of our open days yet this is the one you don’t want to misssssssss…

Andy from Swindon reptile rescue will be in store and he will have some very special guests with him including an iguana! He will be explaining why reptiles and exotic animals make excellent pets, and also explaining the reasons behind the ones that do not.

Get hands on experience with some of the reptiles during the day. You will be able to ask questions and get advice on all the things you will need to know about keeping a reptile. Staff will be on hand to discuss the different options regarding the best food, substrates and environments for your reptiles.

There will be special offers on set-ups for reptiles and staff will be on hand to ensure you have everything you need. All you need to decide is which animal you want to take home!

There will be a cake sale in store on Saturday to raise funds for the Reptile Rescue, with some rather yummy fun reptile themed cupcakes. Look out for fundraising competitions happening in store on the day.

We look forward to welcoming you in store soon: remember we are open in our Bath store 7 days a week!

Spring time news!

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer and as we head into the last week of March it is starting to feel like Spring has sprung.

Spring is known as a time of year for fresh starts and new beginnings, and here at Not Just Pets we too have some new ideas we would like to share with you.

We are taking the blog updates in a new direction to share news, advice, products and information in a regular newsletter. These will be once a week and include reviews, news, information and stories! We are also hoping that you the reader and pet owner will help contribute to these by sending in pictures and stories of your pets when they have settled into their forever home. These can be old pets, new pets, or borrowed pets! Everyone is encouraged to get involved in illustrating the wonderful world of pets as part of the family. In return we will be offering contests, giveaways, information and advice as well as tutorials and how-to guides and product reviews. We will be reviewing new products available as well as old favourites. We will be demonstrating the benefits of why we recommend and love them.
