Our Story

The Purr Hotel first began back in June 2015, as a dog walking and pet sitting service. We were originally based in the south side of Glasgow, and the inspiration for the name came from our pets at the time – Molly, our Labrador – and Misty, our little rescue cat. Our very own Pooch, and Purr!

Over the following year our pet services quickly grew into a very successful small business. By the time we moved to Ayrshire in August 2016 we had an amazing group of cat and dog clients who were part of the Pooch and Purr family – all of whom we are honoured to have looked after. Without all of you we wouldn’t be who we are today.

We thank all our Pet Service, and our current Pet Hotel clients, for following us on this exciting journey. To our future clients – we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Pooch and Purr family!

In the summer of 2019, we changed our name from Pooch and Purr Pet Hotel to The Purr Hotel, as we had to put our plans for our Pooch Hotel on hold and felt we needed the name change to clarify the services we offered.
