The Living Room Zoo

Partner: DSL Business Finance (Central Scotland)
Region: Scotland
Location: West Lothian
Programme: Enterprise Finance Guarantee

West Lothian-based Living Room Zoo is a new start exotic animal pet shop specialising in reptiles. The shop will stock various reptiles, some of which the owners breed themselves. They also sell a variety of more exotic mammals alongside food and accessories for these pets and domestic pet market.

Further to this they stock food and accessories not only for this market but for the more domestic pet market.

Funding was required to assist with start up costs. The owner had managed to secure some funding from the Princes Trust however, this still left a funding gap which DSL was able to assist with.

Jennifer Broadley of The Living Room Zoo said:

We found the process with DSL really easy and straight forward. Without the help of DSL and their funding we would not have been able to proceed with our dream of opening our own Exotic and domestic pet shop. The help does not just stop with the funding, you are given support and guidance after you have opened your business, and we are pleased to say our business is doing great.
