Helping pets, in case of emergency

For the owners of Britain’s estimated 57 million pets, a common concern is what would happen to their pets if the owner was involved in an accident or taken ill. Aylesbury based canine emporium, McGrumpy and Snuffles, has developed a free In Case of Emergency card which owners can carry in their purse, wallet or bag to alert the emergency services in case of incident that their pets are potentially alone at home and who to contact to arrange that they are looked after.

The card also includes space for owners to record details of dietary requirements and health conditions, as well as contact details for their Vet.

To obtain a free copy of the card, pet owners may either:

A) Collect a Free card from one of the following local collection points:

– McGrumpy and Snuffles Canine Emporium, Unit 8 Duck Farm Court, Station Way West, Aylesbury, HP20 2SQ

– Park Ur Paws Dog Grooming Salon, 31 Stoke Road, Aylesbury, HP21 7TE

– Tidy Tails Dog Grooming Salon, Unit 6B Lawn Farm Business Centre, Grendon Underwood, HP18 0QX

– Posh Paws Pet Grooming, North Road, Widmer End, High Wycombe, HP15 6NE


B) Send a stamped-addressed envelope to McGrumpy and Snuffles, Unit 8 Duck Farm Court, Station Way West, Aylesbury, HP20 2SQ to receive a free card by post.

McGrumpy and Snuffles are keen that all local pet owners have access to a free In Case of Emergency card and would welcome enquiries from other local businesses, who would like to act as a collection point.

Katy Martin, Owner of McGrumpy and Snuffles said “We are keen to give our customers the tools to be the best owners they can be and are really pleased to be able to make this card available for free. I believe it will play an important role by making emergency services aware when the holder potentially has unattended pets at home. A number of our customers have pets with long-term or complex health conditions, managed by diet or medication and by including this information, owners will have additional peace of mind.”
