Don't leave it too late!

"For Christmas and Easter book early (2 months in advance) to avoid dissapointment!"

Cat, Rabbit and Bird Boarding Facility


At SVH we have a fully intergated boarding software package that allows us to book our boarding facility like a hotel! We even have a wait list for the busier times of year.

 We board cats, birds and rabbits. Unfortunately we are not licensed to board dogs. However small dogs with chronic illness (e.g. diabetes, heart disease etc) that require special treatment are an exception, as regular kennels may find it difficult to meed their medical needs.

Keep in mind you can make good use of your pet's stay! Have them bathed, groomed, wormed or vaccinated. You can even have that long overdue dental work done, or that minor surgery you just have not got around to. When you arrive for check-in don't hesitate to ask.

Check-in: after 10am, as before that time we are busy with hospital admissions.

Check-out: Monday - Friday, 8am-7pm; Sat. 8am-5pm, Sun. 8am-11am.

Boarding your pet, especially during busy holiday periods can become a nightmare! Never leave your booking too late. Note that both Christmas and Easter periods typically are fully booked a full 2 months in advance, so the trick is BOOK EARLY to avoid disappointment.


Peak season attracts a 15% levy in fees. Please be sure to ask at check-in as to our current rates. Stays are charged on a per night basis. eg Boarding Monday - home any time Friday equals 4 days stay.

You are welcome to visit at any time to inspect our boarding premises in order for you to assess whether you feel they are suitable for your cat.

We have a large out door CatMax run for longer term boarders so they can stretch their legs and smell the roses!

 Note that we keep a full list of all alternative boarding facilities, including house sitters, at our front desk. They will always be happy to help you in this respect.

We have three large runs in addition to standard boarding cages. These are allotted on a first-come-first-served basis and cannot be booked in advance.

Did you know that it is significantly cheaper to board your cats in a single cage than two separate cages? Ask reception for the discount details.
