My name is Denise and I have cared for and learnt about the welfare of small animals for as long as I can remember. Even as a small child my pets were never 'caged'. My house rabbits always had a sitter when I went away as I could never find anywhere that I was happy with. I now have the opportunity to replicate my own pets 'space' for others.
Their mental and physical health has always been at the forefront of my mind whilst they have lived with me and in return it is a privilege to witness their complete trust and faith towards me. I have been approved by my local vet who advertise for me and I also work with Social Services should the need arise in my area to foster pets either short or long term for their clients.
I have indoor accommodations on offer in a temperature controlled room with plenty of natural light and fresh air.
My pens offer a huge 8ft by 4ft ground space with plenty of off floors areas for your pet to explore. This is larger than the recommended floor space for two adult rabbits which is 6ft x 2ft.
There are hiding places, chew toys are always new for each pet and there is plenty of space to run around in and chill out.
If they are used to sawdust, carpet or vinyl underfoot this will be replicated for them.
The above accommodation is suited to rabbits and pigs.
I also have a habitat which offers a 6ft x 3ft x 3.5ft space and has been designed to be multi functional therefore depending on the guest it will be designed to their specific needs i.e. for birds -perches, swings etc For Chinchillas, Hamsters, Degus etc climbing frames, hiding places, new toys, wheels, sand baths etc.
Our guests do not spend time on grass as it is now widely recognised that if multiple rabbits, pigs are allowed to share the same grassy area to exercise there is a high risk of passing on infections as there is no way grass can be adequately disinfected.
Rabbits and pigs are territorial and community animals. They also have a highly developed sense of smell therefore picking up the scent of unfamiliar animals can be very stressful for them also bearing in mind they are out of their usual environment.
The accommodation on offer provides space to run about and explore, however if your pet is very outgoing and curious and wishes to explore outside of their pen they will be given this opportunity with me following close behind!
Before any pet uses my accommodation it is steam cleaned - I have made sure that the floors are made of rubber matting because wood over time holds onto the odour of individuals especially if they are not litter trained and this can be stressful to the newest occupant.The floor can then covered in whatever your pet is used to.
All surfaces are stream cleaned and then wiped down with pet friendly disinfectant . All plastic toys, wheels etc are washed in hot disinfectant water.
Prices - I, unlike most, price by accommodation rather than the pet
£6.00 per day
£40.00 for 7 days
£3.50 per day after 7 days
£1.00 per day for additional pet in the same pen ( to cover the cost of fresh food and hay )
Stays 7 days and over receive 1 night free of charge so you can drop them off in the evening before you go away.
I also have a quiet room in which to house your pets in their own cages. They will be given time out each day under supervision so again my prices reflect this rather than the size of your pet as they are all equally important to me.
1 cage £4.00 per day.
This room can also used for house rabbits.
Grooming is provided at no extra cost if you bring along your grooming brushes.
Open all hours by arrangement
