Our Availability

Throughout the years of us offering boarding for small animals we have continually made ourselves available most days of the week and anywhere from 8am through to 8pm or even 9pm on occasions. This has meant we have sacrificed a lot of our time to waiting around at home and not having the opportunity to go out ourselves or enjoy time with the family.

As of 2017 we decided that we needed to ensure time for ourselves and our kids a bit more and so our availability will be changing. We do still plan to be flexible when necessary but we are intending to be stricter during school holiday times.
