About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

We are Jo & Ian Gallier

We run 'Home from Home' Small Animal Boarding from our own home in Petts Wood.

We are a small, family run, friendly business that provides high quality, reliable, low cost boarding for your rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises, hamsters and gerbils.

We are most days and will schedule your drop-off or collection to suit you (subject to our own family commitments!)


We have a variety of 4ft single or double height hutches’ which are housed in a safe family garden environment, and large cages in our inside accommodation.

Hamsters and gerbils are housed in our family lounge (your own cage is required)

Tortoises be request - please email us.


All guests have daily playtime in our secure outdoor runs - weather permitting.

Hamster are given playtime in wheels or balls depending on what they are used to. Please do let us know or bring suitable play toys.

Health & Hygiene:

Cleaned daily
Fresh sawdust, straw, food and water plus daily fresh fruit and vegetable treats. All our guinea pigs are fed on either nuggets or museli style food. Fussy eaters may bring their own food with them if they want to!

Rabbits MUST be vaccinated and vaccination records have to be provided at the time of booking. All rabbits must bring their own food please as diet changes may cause upset tummies.

If veterinary treatment is required, this will be approved with you (where possible) and all bills must be settled by you directly with the Vet.

If your Vet is not available we will use our own local Vet at Companion Care in Orpington.

If you pet is insured, please bring details of this with you when you board.

My buns have boarded with Jo a few times and they always come home looking happy and healthy. The area with the hutches looks very clean and well cared for and Jo is very quick to reply to communications. Highly recommend.

Just picked up our 4 bunnies after their first two week holiday with Jo and her lovely family. It's definitely a 'home from home' atmosphere and clear to see that they love all the animals in their care and treat them as if they were their own :-). Can't recommend them enough and will certainly be back!

Jo and Ian looked after Bubbles my hamster extremely well, I also received some lovely photo messages during my holiday with his antics on which was a lovely surprise. He came home so happy and chilled out, cage was immaculate, I'd definately recommend them to anyone

Coco and Pancake our rabbits had a great week away. We were able to go on holiday and relax and look forward to using Home from Home again. A very friendly family service.

5 From Sophie/Emilie on

I was more than happy for home from home to look after my 2 rabbits while I was holiday they were looked after very well and I would be more than happy for Jo and her family to have them again.

Our two guinea pigs have been house guests with Jo and her family on 3 occasions and they look after them as well as we do at home... it really is a "home away from home" and we can go on holiday and relax safe in the knowledge our girls are well looked after:)
