As a way of funding the work of our rescue, Furlock Holmes offers boarding services for rabbits, guinea pigs and, on occasion, ferrets. Having rescued over 800 small furries, we are highly experienced when it comes to caring for small pets and pride ourselves in the high standard of care all our residents receive, whether rescue, sanctuary or boarding.

Using our online Boarding Portal, you can add all your details, your pet's details, your emergency contact's details and your vet's details. Please complete this as fully as possible to enable us to provide the best care we can for your pet.

​Why Choose Us?

We know how worrying it can be to leave your beloved pet in someone else's care when you go away. We also know that it can be quite stressful for an animal to live somewhere else for a little while. However, we aim to make your pet's stay with us as calm and stress-free as possible for both you and your pet.

  • ​We offer to send you regular updates and pictures of your pet via text or email to keep your mind at ease

  • We are primarily a small animal rescue, so we have a lot of experience with rabbits and guinea pigs

  • We treat all animals as if they are part of the family so they get lots of cuddles and attention as well as the basic care

  • The hutches are in a barn, so are sheltered from wind and rain

  • We offer to clip nails/groom your pet free of charge during their stay

  • We are fully insured

  • You are more than welcome to come and view our accommodation and meet us before booking your pets in.

Boarding Fees

  • £5.50 per night for a rabbit hutch
