So you have picked your perfect holiday- your pet needs excellent accommodation too if they can't stay at home!
Perhaps you have a relative who has gone into hospital or a temporary care home and there is no one to look after their treasured pets?
My name is Kate and I may be able to help......
I have kept animals my whole life and started out with fish keeping as a child (both pond and aquarium). I then kept tree frogs and lizards as a teenager until I was allowed my first dog. I've kept rabbits, gerbils and mice and currently have two cats and five hens.
I understand the needs of the more unusual pets and over the years I have struggled to find people to look after them whilst I've been ill or on vacation.
Having decided on a career change, I started the Sylvan small animal pet hotel in our family home to assist with pet boarding and holiday pet care of all small pets from Stafford, Penkridge, Cannock and the surrounding areas, whether they be, furry, feathered or have scales!
Based on the edge of Stafford in the small rural hamlet of Coppenhall, I offer several types of accommodation for rabbit boarding in Stafford & guinea pig boarding in Stafford and have a large specialist cage suitable for pet rats in our secure outdoor brick building.
Alternatively, we offer a "bring your own cage" arrangement which allows me to look after all other small critters such as small mammals (gerbils/hamsters/mice/degus/chinchillas) as well as he more exotic reptiles, tortoises, birds etc. in the comfort of our temperature controlled facility.
We also have 32sq. ft. outdoor, predator proof accommodation for rabbits and Guinea Pigs as well as large individual purpose built woodland chalets consisting of a raised hen house and run suitable for poultry such as chickens or ducks.
Long term boarding is available on request depending on the animal and the circumstances.
Everything at the hotel is provided such as hay, bedding, fruit and veg. The only thing you will need to bring with you is your pets dry food, frozen prey items or live insects as required.
If your pet has any favourite toys/blankets, you are welcome to bring these with you to the hotel, or perhaps you might like to purchase a selection of new toys and treats from our hotel "gift shop".
