About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

My name is Danielle and I am the owner of The Small Animal Hotel. I purchased the hotel from Craig and Vicky at The Pets Country Manor in September 2016 due to their cattery expansion. I have always loved all types of animals, and have been lucky enough to have experience with many different animals due to growing up on a farm.

After completing my BSc Psychology and Internet Technology degree in 2007, I have done a number of different jobs. However it is only now that I feel I have my dream job working with animals every day at The Small Animal Hotel.

I have very high standards and treat all of the animals here as one of my own, with love and affection. All of our accommodation and runs are on hard standing and we only use DEFRA approved cleaning products such as F10. We would never use grass as this cannot be cleaned and therefore increases the risk of spreading disease and virus.

I am a member of RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund) and The British Rabbit Council. I am CRB checked and also have the following Pet Industry Federation accredited ‘Pet Handling & Welfare’ certificates – Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and Bearded Dragons.

Please feel free to contact me for any further information. I look forward to meeting both you and your beautiful pets!

The Small Animal Hotel offers luxury rabbit boarding, guinea pig boarding and all other small animal boarding such as hamsters, bearded dragons, chickens, degus etc. Based in St. Helens, Merseyside.

We have some of the largest rooms in the UK for our guests, with deluxe penthouses offering over an incredible 120 sq ft. of floor space with castles, bridge, mezzanine level and ladders, all with safety banisters!

The Small Animal Hotel is set in a beautiful sandstone converted barn located in a peaceful and tranquil countryside surrounding within easy reach of the M62 - close to Liverpool and Manchester. Our barns are alarmed and have CCTV, we are fully insured and have smoke alarms fitted.

All of our accommodation and runs are on hard standing which makes them easy to clean in between boarders - this is essential in a small animal boarding establishment.

We have 6 deluxe penthouses, 8 hutch with run, 22 hutches and plenty of space for pets who come in their own cages or vivarium’s available.

The Small Animal Hotel is in the yard at the farm where we live, so there is always someone here. Appointments are required in order to ensure your pets room is ready.

Home collection and delivery service is available, prices start from £20. Please visit our website for further information and to download a booking form.

Hutch only guests have access to a 48 sq ft. run every other day for 3 hours (weather permitting)

Health & Hygiene:

A condition of boarding is that your pet is in a fit and healthy condition with no fleas. Rabbits need to be vaccinated every year for VHD and Myxomatosis, you must bring your pets vaccination card with you to The Small Animal Hotel. The new vaccine for RVHD2 will become compulsory when it is more widely available from vets, please contact your vet to make a booking.

Unfortunately, if you forget to bring your vaccination card we cannot look after your pet (you will have to go home to collect it.) Please note a 2-week gap between date of the first ever vaccination and the arrival date of your pet’s holiday is required to ensure the vaccine is working.

Has your rabbit been treated by a vet for flystrike? We strongly recommended this between April and October.

All of our accommodation and runs are on hard standing and we only use DEFRA approved cleaning products such as F10. We would never use grass as this cannot be cleaned and therefore increases the risk of spreading disease and virus.

Chickens need to be wormed prior to boarding.
