Are you going away, but have nobody to look after your small furries? - then feel free to contact us.
We primarily run as a rescue but also have spaces to board the following animals; rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters. We operate completely from our own home so your animal will never be short on company.
All rabbits and guinea pigs are provided with clean hutches suited to their individual needs/ preferences and requirements. Our main hutches are at least 5 foot in length, with access to an outdoor run (weather permitting). We can board rabbits and guinea pigs either inside or outside depending on their needs/requirements. Most people supply an indoor cage if they wish their animal to be kept indoors, but we do also have some spare if needed. Hamsters are kept within our home 24/7.
For bedding, we use woodshavings, hay and straw. Unlimited hay is provided as part of their dietary needs. In the warmer months, rabbits and guinea pigs have access to outdoor runs with constant supervision and security. During the evening, all animals are safely shut in their hutches.
You are welcome to bring with you any toys and written instructions that will make your pet feel welcome, settled and happy. We also provide a wide variety of toys and all animals will receive fresh food everyday, if there are any special dietary requirements or favourite vegetables/fruit that your animals like, then we ask that you let us know at the time of booking so we can accommodate these needs.
Health & Hygiene:
For the protection of all our boarding animals, rabbits must be vaccinated against VHD 1&2 and Myxomatosis (at least two weeks prior to arrival). Pets will not be admitted if showing any visible signs of clinical illnesses or distress, but caring advice will be given. If your pet does become ill whilst in our care, or needs veterinary assistance we will call the attention of our local vet. Any treatment will have to be charged to you directly from the vet under your name and address. However, you will be contacted immediately if we have any concerns. Your choice of vet is also offered if preferred. If directed we can administer any medication to your pet whilst you are away, but we ask that you let us know in advance of this, and also provide enough medication for the duration of their stay. We care very strongly for your pet and only act within their best interest.
Small Pet Boarding Prices
All fees include clean, fresh daily bedding, hay, fresh fruit and vegetables, grooming and nail clipping (if needed).
We do ask that you provide all your pets dried food and any other dietary requirements; their stomach is very sensitive and therefore a change of diet could cause stomach upsets, leading to veterinary trips.
Boarding fees (new prices for 2024):
Rabbit: £7 per night (£3.00 per additional rabbit sharing a hutch)
Guinea pig: £5.00 per night (£3 per additional Guinea pig sharing a hutch)
Hamsters: £3.50 per night per cage
Unfortunately we have had to increase our prices slightly this year, this is the first time we have actually raised our prices since starting up many years ago, but we can still offer a reduced rate if you are going away for a long-period.
Please fill in the form below if you wish to make an enquiry.
All of the money that we get from boarding will go straight back into the rescue animals in our care. Thank you for your support!
