The 39-year-old previously worked in banks, travel agents and in manufacturing companies before branching out into the world of pet food.

Running her own business she felt would give her more control over her life, as well as fulfilling a lifelong passion to work with animals.

Sarah said: “Working with dogs and cats is a dream come true. I hope to gain a great client base with lots of pets.

“When you are passionate about work it becomes a pleasure. We’ve always had dogs in the family.

“I am a supporter of Guide Dogs for the Blind and also sponsor a kennel at my local RSPCA branch.

“Our dog, a lovely 14 year old labrador called Squirt, has been on Heights Farm all the time we have owned her.

“She is going strong and looks a lot younger than other dogs that are younger than her.

“It’s great knowing that the food Heights Farm offers to pets is natural, wholesome and really good value for money.

“In the busy world we live in it’s a positive that we can help as many dogs and cats as possible enjoy the food by delivering it straight to the doors of their owners.”

Sarah will be delivering a range of pet food and treats door to door to cat and dog owners.

Her round will include Hebden Bridge, delivering in the town for the first time, as well as Todmorden, Brighouse and Halifax.
