Meet the team:

Shelley: Operations Manager for Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay


I started with the ark in 2008 as a pet sales advisor in which I worked myself up to be store manager of the Plymstock branch, I then progressed to operations manager now overseeing the 7 branches within Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay. Working with the ark couldn’t be more rewarding, the company has given me so many opportunities and I would not be where I am today without them! The team are fantastic and we are like one big family. The job itself is so rewarding, caring for the livestock and finding them suitable homes makes you smile and knowing you are helping customers and their pets with all the needs and requirements that they need brings great satisfaction. One of the best parts of the job is the relationship and bonds you make with the customers and their pets for instance to meet an 8 week old puppy and then to watch them grow in to adults is fantastic especially when they come in to see you and they get so excited always wanting cuddles and treats always makes your day! We not only share the happy times with our customers and pets but we also share the sad times too but I really wouldn’t change it for the world!! I have a 16 year old tabby cat named Cleo who I have had for 8 years she loves looking at herself in the mirror especially after tea and enjoys sun bathing. I have completed the Pet Foundation Animal Husbandry Course and the Pet Store Management course.

Vikki: Store Manager


I think the best part of my job, not only as manager but as a member of the ark family is the continuity of the care and the passion for our animals here and the animals of all the customers we serve. I feel the care we take and the time we spend with each customer is proof of the pride we take in our business. I work with the fantastic team at Transit way and Western Approach and I feel that the hardworking and empathetic way they work helps to promote the Arks core values.

I get great satisfaction from my job knowing that I have been able to help a new or old pet owner gain confidence and knowledge in the products that they are using.
