About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

My name is Christina and I started my boarding in 2010 due to being unable to find work. I have a level 1 NVQ in animal care and have owned animals all my life. I work on my own as my facilities are not very big.

Accommodation:

I have a variety of accommodation both outside and indoors. Outdoors I have a number of 6’x2’x2’ hutches with attached runs for rabbits. I also have the same size hutches for guinea pigs. In the shed I have one 5’x5’ space for rabbits with a large, attached run. There are also two 5’x5’ guinea pig spaces. Indoors I have a dedicated animal room which can accommodate house rabbits. Guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, rats, tortoises on their tables can all be accommodated here. I have several indoor guinea pig cages, but smaller animals will need to bring their own cages. Pre booking visits are welcome, however under current restrictions, only the outside accommodation can be viewed.

Exercise:

I have a safe section of garden that I can block off for rabbits to have a supervised hop around. I also have runs to put out guinea pigs on the grass when the weather is fine. They are carefully supervised when out of their hutches and will not be left out if there is no-one at home.

Health & Hygiene:

All animal accommodation is checked daily and cleaned out as necessary. Rabbits and guinea pigs are cleaned out completely at least every 3 days and spot cleaned in between. Animal safe disinfectants are used, and hutches allowed to dry between boarders. Rabbit owners are advised to have them vaccinated annually against Myxomatosis, Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease 1 (RHD1) and Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease2(RHD2). I do not insist on vaccination as I understand there are sometimes sound reason for not having this done, however, unvaccinated rabbits stay at the owner’s risk. My own two rabbits are vaccinated annually. I am happy to administer any medication that your pet requires if you provide written instructions. If I am concerned about your pet’s health during their stay, I will make every effort to contact you or your nominated contact. Depending on location, I will either take them to your own vet or to the vet that I am registered with.

Small Pet Boarding Prices

Rabbits and Guinea pigs : £5 per hutch per day Hamsters/rats/mice, etc : £3.00 per cage per day. Small cage birds: £3.00 per day. Reptiles: £5 per day (you will need to bring your own vivarium / tortoise table.)
Please bring your pet’s normal dry food. Fresh veg, fruit and hay are provided daily, as appropriate. I do not require a deposit and do not charge for cancellations. I get very busy during school holidays so early booking is essential. I take payment by BACS, cheque or cash.

Christina has been looking after my bunnies every time I go away and I know they get first class treatment and the very best accommodation. It really is a perfect holiday destination for them and they are treated with the upmost love and care. Highly recommended.

I've left my house rabbit here on a number of occasions over the past year and a half. I'm delighted with the service Christina provides, she's lovely and cares about all animals. We were lucky to have found her!

I was really worried about leaving my 4 bunnys last week when I went on holiday as they have never been away from home before, but when I collected them yesterday they were all perfectly happy, Christine has done a fantastic job, 2 of them were in the big shed and didn’t want to come home I brought them home and they sulked for a while so must of been a great week for them, so thankyou Christine

We have been bringing Butter our Rabbit to Christina for the last 2 years on 6 occasions now. Christina provides a most lovely environment at an excellent cost. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Christina to look after your pets as I know Nutmeg my rabbit is in safe hands and has a lovely holiday home to go to where she is well cared for with fresh bedding and the very best of care and attention.

Just dropped my bunny off with Christina. This is the second time she has been there and I couldn't be happier in the knowledge she will be looked after and loved. Great facilities, in fact I doubt she will want to come home. Would highly recommend Christina to anyone.

I was a bit anxious about leaving my rabbits as they have never been away from home before but when I collected them they were calm and relaxed. They had been moulting before i went away and looked a little shabby despite my efforts to brush them. Christina took wonderful care of them both and they came home with sleek shiny coats. Many thanks Christina

This is the perfect place for your small furries to take a break. Christina is lovely and very knowledgeable. This is the first time i've put any animals into boarding where they've come home looking better than when they went in!

Location

I am fifteen minutes away from Stratford Upon Avon, when coming into the village I'm in the first close on the right. You will come to large square car park area, I'm the house in the far corner with a large brown shed in the front garden.

Open Hours

Open hours are slightly flexible depending what I'm doing during the day. Saturdays I volunteer at a Rabbit and guinea rescue mostly all day. I also do dog walking during the week days. The best thing is contact me to arrange a time to come visit. You can contact me any time.
