We are also a member of the Rabbit Welfare Association.

We offer peace of mind that your pet will be well looked after in your absence. The safety and well being of your pet is our highest priority and we take the worry out of having to rely on friends or neighbours to help out. We provide a boarding service for small furries such as rabbits guinea pigs or reptiles and a pop in service if you prefer or for larger pets. We cover swadlincote and the surrounding area including Burton Upon Trent, Repton, Measham, Moira etc. and can provide a pop in service over a wider area but there may be a small mileage charge – contact us for details.

All pets catered for – from goldfish to horses!

We are reliable, professional and honest. We think it is very important to meet all potential clients and their pets prior to providing any service. We provide a no obligation free consultation that allows you to be sure that we are the right people to look after your cherished pets and that we fully understand your requirements.

We treat all your pets as if they were our own and we aim to mirror the way you care for then so that they are kept to a familiar routine.
