At Whiskers Animal Hotel, small animal pet boarding, we offer both inside and outside accommodation and have a purpose built, fully insulated building in which your pets can stay. From April to October we offer a choice of cage so your pet can enjoy either being outside or, if your 'furries' are indoor pets, inside our animal house. From the 1st October, all our guests are accommodated inside.
Your Rabbit or Guinea-pig can enjoy holidaying in one of our 'Apple Tree Lane' holiday hutches, set in the quiet, tranquil part of the garden with the therapeutic sounds of the fish pond. All hutches have their own runs and lawn time is also available on request.
Apple Tree Lane.......
If your pet would prefer our indoor facilities, then they can enjoy a stay in our Butterfly House, purpose built for our little guests, we monitor temperature and humidity so they are as comfortable as possible. We can cater for all your small furry friends and have a range of cages to suit their individual needs.
At Whisker, we ask you to provide your pets regular dry diet (this avoids any tummy upsets) and we provide everything else inc all hay, woodshavings, fresh food and treats.
If you have a pet not mentioned above, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will try our best to accommodate them. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate Cats at Whiskers Animal Hotel as we don't have the facilities here, however, we could arrange to visit your home and look after your cat there. We are DBS (CRB) checked so you can trust who is coming into your home
the five freedoms
The 'Five Freedoms'
The Animal Welfare Act 2006 enshrined the animal owners 'duty of care' in British law. The Act states that anyone responsible for an animal should take reasonable steps to ensure its needs are met.
Here at Whiskers Animal Hotel, we follow the Five Freedoms which are;
1 - freedom from hunger and thirst 2 - freedom from discomfort 3 - freedom from pain, injury and disease 4 - freedom to express normal behaviour 5 - freedom from fear and distress
'WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
......Well organized and well kept. The animals I saw all looked perky and cared for. My two enjoyed their stay giving me a relaxing break. They will be back.
......I found Vicky very friendly and knowledgeable which was reassuring. The facilities are well maintained and clean. Will definitely use Whiskers again next year.
