Services

We offer an array of pet care services to suit the needs of both you and your pet, making your time apart from them as happy and stress-free as possible.

 

Dog Home Boarding

If your dog would also like a holiday, why not let him/her stay in the home of one of our Paw Pals or one of their wonderful host families? They can become part of the family for just a weekend or for longer holidays too.


*Dogs must be fully inoculated and treated for fleas and worms in advance.

Cat Feeding/Sitting

A short visit provides all the essentials; feed, water, change litter trays, clean pet areas/accidents, basic grooming, administering medication (if applicable). Longer visits consist of all the above plus extra time for cuddles and playtime or extra attention, ideal for kittens, elderly or ill cats. Visits can be anything from 15 minutes to an hour.

In addition to this, household duties such as bring in post, watering plants, switch lights on/off, close/open curtains and putting the bins out can also be included.

Small Animal Boarding

Your small pets can have a holiday too! Hutches and runs are provided to accommodate your fluffy friends, including rabbits*, guinea pigs and ferrets. Hay, bedding and daily fresh food are provided. Smaller pets like hamsters, rats, degus etc can board in their own cages, if easily transportable. Please enquire at your local branch for boarding for birds and exotics.

*It is recommended that rabbits are vaccinated against Myxomatosis and VHD.
