Hoppy Holidays is owned and managed by Keith and Jacqueline Hitchen. Jacqueline has owned a variety of small pets since childhood and Keith has over sixteen years experience of looking after our own small pets. We currently have three rabbits of our own. Our experience means we are knowledgeable about small animals and understand that they are very much part of the family. That is why we treat each pet as one of our own while they are with us.
Our spacious hutches measure 6x2x2ft and are approved by the Rabbit Welfare Association. They are of high quality. Hamsters, gerbils etc are usually brought to us in their own enclosures from home to reduce stress and are kept in the house where it is darker and cooler, making it easier for them to sleep in the day. Our guests are all housed separately unless they are a bonded pair or group. Rabbits and guinea pigs are housed in their hutches in a secure and safe outbuilding and each are placed in their hutches at night for extra safety. Pets are not left in outdoor pens overnight. We do have separate enclosures for use in case of illness.
Each of our visitors gets ample opportunity for outdoor exercise in our enclosed, shady and spacious garden. We have several pens some of which are interchangeable so if your rabbit is larger or you have a group of pets, we can alter our pens to make them larger or smaller, giving your pets the space they need. If your rabbit is an indoor bunny, they are more than welcome to join us in the house and have the run of our living room. Please let us know your pet's full requirements beforehand. Of course, if they are happy being handled, they get lots of cuddle time too!
All rabbits must have up to date Myxi and VHD vaccinations and owners must be able to show us their vaccination cards before their pets are left with us. This is important for the health and welfare of your own rabbit/s and our other guests.
We are more than happy to provide medication prescribed from your vet if needed. Please make sure we have full details of your pet's condition, how and when medication is administered and how it is to be stored before your leave your pet with us.
Accommodation hygiene is of great importance to us and we make sure our hutches are steam cleaned and disinfected using environmentally and pet friendly products between each guest.
