“First time I have used rabbit lodgings for my three bunnies – I have to say it’s five stars without a doubt, all very well looked after with a super outdoor run, regular updates on how they all were – I’m sure they didn’t want to come home after their super holiday‚ thanks so much, look forward to seeing you in August”

“I hunted high and low for a good quality, professional boarding for our two guinea pigs and two rats. After having been turned away and blatantly ignored by other small animal boarding places, I found exactly what I was looking for with Playful Paws!! Communication was always quick and friendly; this was evident from the very first email. Carey was welcoming and approachable. I was more than happy with the price and the service offered. Upon arrival we were greeted by Carey, who asked us plenty of questions about our animals in order to get to know them, as well as allowed us to ask all the questions we wanted. The area where the animals were kept was smart, tidy and clean and well stocked with plenty of toys and hide-outs for the guinea pigs. We had a text while we were away, with an update on how the animals were doing, and it was a real personalised text which proved that Payful Paws really do treat and care for the animals as their own. When we picked the animals up, they were still clean and tidy, happy and healthy. We were so impressed and happy with the service that we received that we’ve already booked our guinea pigs, rats AND hamsters in with Carey and Playful Paws over our Christmas break!! Thank you Playful Paws!!”
