About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

We started as a hobby and became involved in rescuing ex-commercial hens. In addition, we now sell chickens and Coops. With an ethos of caring for our chickens to give them an environment in which they thrive before going on with their new families! In addition, we developed Animal Shacks Chicken Hotel. Our customers have absolute peace-of-mind knowing that their hens are in a safe and caring, family environment. By popular demand, we've expanded our care to include small animals too. We have a growing, diverse number of pets here, which include RABBITS, GUINEA PIGS, DUCKS, TORTOISES, HAMSTERS, DAGUS, GERBILS AND OF COURSE HENS. We are able to have many more types of pet, so please do enquire if not on the list.

Accommodation:

Chicken Coops suitable for flocks 2-15. Clean Coops with a good size, fox-proof pen.

Rabbits/guinea pigs enjoy a hutch with foxproof run

Mice/rats/gerbils/hamsters can be brought in their existing cage, or, for a small charge, have one of ours.

Exercise:

All animals will be let into their individual enclosures early morning and safely closed into at sunset, making sure they are safe, dry and warm. Shelter from the sun and rain is provided in the run/pen also!

Health & Hygiene:

Chickens are given a general health check (we reserve the right to refuse any chicken, or any animal, which exhibits signs of ill health or infestation)

Your pets will enjoy a clean, safe home/pen with fresh, dust extracted bedding, to spend their days and nights in whilst with us. Clean water, food (layer pellets) and grit provided daily...plus treats (corn/mealworm)
Veggies, fruit, hay and animal appropriate nuggets..e.g. burgess Excel)

IMPORTANT:- TERMS YOU AGREE TO BY BRINGING YOUR PET TO US:-

We never let an animal suffer, and by bringing your pets to us, in the unlikely event of them becoming sick or injured, you agree to them being seen by a vet. In this situation, we will try to contact you. We will be guided by the vets advice on how to treat your pet,(along with your wishes, if we can contact you) including euthanasia. This is extremely unlikely to happen, but, we have to accept that it's possible. All veterenary charges, incurred for your pet, will be your responsibility.

I felt completely at ease when we left my son's hamster here. The owner seems a genuine animal lover. This place is beautifully located within a short distance from Ashford. The cost was really good. Our hamster was taken care of, and was returned to us after a month looking great too.
