About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.

I have many years experience of looking after a variety of small pets and will look after your precious pet as if they are my own. In placing the care of your pet with us whilst you are away, you will be able to have complete piece of mind with respect to their care and safety.


There are six hutches with runs all off different sizes (some larger ones more suitable for rabbits and others on one level more suitable for guinea pigs). When the weather turns colder some hutches will be moved into a garage. We also have large indoor cages which can be within the home - whichever is more suitable for your pet. The hutches are in a secure, quiet garden.


All hutches have runs (some are covered) and pets will have access to the runs during the day and be secured in the sleeping area at night.

Health & Hygiene:

Rabbits will need to have proof of VHD and myxomatosis. Accommodation will be cleaned daily and disinfected between guests. Before pets are left, their food preferences/dislikes will be discussed. If your pet is taking medication, this can be given during their stay and if pets are suddenly ill, we will take your pet to a nearly vet (and the bill will need to be paid direct to them on your return).

We regularly bring our hamster to Sue for a holiday while we go away and she is very gentle and kind and Hector seems to come back with a spring in his step! Fortunately we were delighted to find that Sue also could look after our hens. We couldn’t think of anyone better to entrust our pets.

My hamster was very well looked after by Precious Pets. She seems very happy and healthy and I would recommend this service to anyone with a small pet! I'm refreshingly pleased by the care my hamster received and she has clearly been not just looked after but loved and cared for during her stay.

5 From Charlie on

Sue looked after our 2 guinea pigs for 2 weeks and we were so pleased with the care and service she offered. She has a great selection of cages available, gave our guineas regular attention and they were very well looked after. I would highly recommend Sue and we will certainly book with her again.

Sue provided a wonderful environment for my two bunnies for three weeks this summer. She was able to accommodate them at very short notice and they had a large hutch and outdoor run to themselves with fresh greens, fruit & veg every day. She has a variety of other hutches available with lots of boredom buster toys. All the animals get lots of attention and my bunnies came home very happy and content! I can strongly recommend Home Care for Precious Pets. Wonderful pet care and peace of mind while you're away at a very reasonable rate.
