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 me whilst you are away, you will have complete piece of mind with respect to their care and safety.

Accommodation:

There are various hutches with runs of different sizes (some larger ones more suitable for rabbits and others on one level more suitable for guinea pigs). All outside hutches are in a quiet, secure garden. We also have several large indoor cages (both 160cms and 120cms). I always suggest a visit to Precious Pets prior to making a booking to ensure you are entirely happy with what is provided.

Exercise:

All hutches have fitted covers and have adjoining runs Pets will have access to the runs during the day and be secured in the sleeping area at night. Pets are handled/checked every day to check they are in full health.

Health & Hygiene:

Rabbits will need to be fully vaccinated (VHD and myxomatosis. Accommodation will be cleaned daily and disinfected between guests. When pets arrive their food preferences/dislikes will be discussed. If your pet is taking medication, this can be given during their stay and if pets suddenly become ill, after checking with the owner, they will be taken to a nearby vet (Tower Group) and the bill will need to be paid on your return).

Found Sue through this site, got in touch straight away and pre arranged our Rabbit to be looked after for 5 days. We took our rabbit round and she instantly took to Sue. Really smooth and easy process, felt very confident that we had chosen the right person and will definitely be back in touch the next time we go away. Would recommend!

I live between two countries and when I got my pet Bruno I knew I needed to find the best place for him to stay while I am away. I found Sue and her Precious Pets on FindPetBoarding.com and I contacted her to check if she had any availability for two months. She was so kind and helpful since the beginning, and she helped me find the best accommodation for my Bruno. She and her beautiful dog Charlie welcomed us and showed us around. She explained us everything we needed to know and it was so beautiful to see how Bruno instantly felt at home with her! While I was away, I emailed her to check on Bruno multiple times and her replies were very reassuring and immediate all the time! Definitely the best place to leave your pet, not only it is very affordable for this type of business, but Sue will make sure your pet is loved and looked after for their entire stay! Thank you so much Sue for your help, me and Bruno will definitely come back!

Sue is absolutely fantastic, we have used her since the beginning of the year for our mini lop rabbits. Very welcoming and knowledgeable, a real home from home for our two rabbits. Highly recommend and will continue to use for as we have done on several occasions throughout the year.

5 From Lindsay on

Fantastic home away from home for small animals, Sue, the owner has a huge amount of knowledge on small pets and treats any animal as if it was her very own. I can very highly recommend Precious Pets and hope to use this service again in the future.

5 From J & R Sotheran on

We've been trusting our guinea pigs to Sue for three years now. She always gives us and them a warm welcome, and they get the very best of care. Sue feeds them a great variety of food, and has given medication when it's been needed. It's great knowing that we can leave them in competent and caring hands whenever we go away. I would recommend Precious Pets to anyone without hesitation.

5 From Chris on

We have used Precious Pets for our two guinea pigs when we away on holiday over the past two years or so. Sue has been great very knowledgable, caring, reliable, friendly. She was happy to look after one of our guineas even when Toffee needed meds from the vet. Am very happy to recommend Precious Pets as Sue provides excellent service.

5 From Margaret Smyth on

We left our two tortoises with sue for the week I can't recommend sue enough for her kindness for caring for your pets. Will definitely be back. Thanks sue.

5 From Della parvin on

I was absolutely delighted to find Sue a couple of months ago and our rabbit, Angel, stayed with her in August. She was so attentive and kind about Angel's individual needs and it completely put our minds at rest that he would be fine. He had a great holiday with Sue and he was so well cared for having all of the exercise, space, love and food that he needed! I couldn't recommend Sue more.

5 From Gemma M on

Sue looked after my rabbit and she did an amazing job. It was my first time leaving her with anyone and i would definitely take her back there. The garden is very secure and we got to choose the hutch we wanted her in. She was very very well looked after. I would recommend Sue to anyone.

5 From Grace on

Sue has been looking after my pet rabbit for almost 2 years now and I couldn't thank her enough for how attentive she is and how much she cares about other peoples animals. From the beginning Sue was absolutely lovely and asked us lots of questions about caring for our bunny. It's nice to know that when we are away that our rabbit is taken care of well - which is the most important thing! I would highly recommend Sue to my friends and family and I couldn't thank her enough for everything she has done so far.

5 From Jen & Dan on

From the moment I met Sue, I knew that she would take excellent care of my 10 year old rabbit, Clover. Sue is a lovely lady with an excellent knowledge of rabbits & other small animals. She took time to talk to me about Clover's needs & dietary requirements. Clover was wonderfully cared for during her stay & I have no hesitation in recommending Precious Pets. Thank you Sue!

5 From Louise Whitfield on

Sue looked after our Guinea pig for a week recently. This is the first time we have used Sue and would not hesitate to use her again. She is a lovely caring person and Monty was looked after superbly. She went the extra mile for us. Thank you Sue

5 From Joy on

Contacted Sue after reading the amazing reviews she had for animal boarding and i was not let down. Sue was very accomdating and helpful arranging a pre viewing and making sure we had everything prepared for my house bunny (Dotty) to feel settled and cared for while i was on holiday. Sue has other animals in her home and it was comforting to see the love and high standard of living the animals had (hamsters, bunnies, birds) and the massive amount of knowledge she has around handling and caring for them. Dotty deffinately had the best of the best when it comes to a holiday home and i look forward to coming back to Sue for future holidays!!

5 From Stacey on

Sue is such a lovely lady and perfect pet boarding for all small animals! Our indoor bunnies definitely loved it and I have no doubt that she has looked after them as if they were her own. The children also loved talking to her about all the other animals there both on drop off and collection. Better than other rabbit boarding we have used by a mile and will definitely return for all of our future trips!

5 From Megan on

Sue has provided a bespoke boarding service for my guinea pigs - allowing me to take their cage so they would feel at home in someone else's home. Sue is a gentle and caring lady and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Precious Pets for rabbit and guinea pig owners - for peace of mind while you are away.

5 From Fiona Grange on

Everytime we leave our rats with Sue they come back happy and well rested. They are having a holiday when she takes care of them, she always provides them with free range time and all the snacks they can dream of. She has other pets of her own but anytime I go there I see that the small furries are in cages in one room, where the bigger guys (like her dog) are not really allowed. She promptly responds to any emails giving updates when we are away, and we are always sure our babies have all the care they need! Would highly recommend.

5 From Ingrid Herdzik on

Sue is the ideal person to care for small pets on holiday. She goes the extra mile to ensure they are happy and contented. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for small pet boarding.

5 From Pauline Hukin on

Sue is a fabulous pet sitter - I’m sure my rats are having as much of a holiday as me when I leave them with her! She houses them in a positively palatial rat abode, gets them out for playtime every night and treats them to a wide variety of edible delights. She is also endlessly accommodating and genuinely concerned for their welfare - when one of my rats needed regular medication Sue was completely happy to administer it, and I know she wouldn’t have hesitated to seek professional vet help on my behalf if there’d been any further problems.

5 From Vicky on

Sue has looked after our two guinea pigs Winnie and Ivy many times and I cannot imagine leaving them to anybody else now. She is a real find: caring, patient, a true animal lover and extremely knowledgeable about how to look after small pets. She has plenty of hutches and lots of space and our piggies are always relaxed after we pick them up. Sue also gives them a trim, wich is great as I am too nervous to do it in case I snip them.

5 From Caroline Duggan on

Two very very happy bunnies after their holiday with Sue, proper home from home.. thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of them both. They will be back for their October holiday x

5 From Mandy Bowers on

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.

5 From Richard Firm on

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.

5 From Angela Nicholson on

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.
