Situated in the Castlereagh Hills a few miles outside Belfast we are a family business and take pride in the care, comfort and contentment of all our feline and canine guests. We are Ministry of Agriculture approved carrying agents and can collect pets from Belfast City, Belfast International or Dublin Airport. We would be grateful if you could give us at least 14days clear notice of arrival and would ask whenever possible pets are sent to arrive on a weekday and not over weekends or Bank Holiday periods.
After collection and customs clearance has been completes we will take your pet to our quarantine station. All the animals in our care are given regular health check (there is a veterinary surgeon resident on the quarantine premises) and are groomed on a regular basis.
Our cattery is very modern and comfortable and the individual kennels vary in size from 35 sq. ft. to 50 sq.ft. The sleeping area is raised and each cat is provided with a rigid plastic bed lined with vet bed. The exercise area is tiled and we provide scratching logs and ping pong balls ets. For your cat’s amusement. All the cats are groomed regularly and benefit from regular play/cuddle sessions with staff.
Our dog kennels vary in size from 98 sq.ft. to just over 200 sq.ft. The sleeping quarters are tiled and each dog is provided with a rigid plastic bed lined with a vet bed or blanket. The runs are built around a central courtyard, visible from our own residence which allows the dogs to see and
hear each other without making physical contact and allows them to see the comings and goings of our staff and ourselves. In addition all the dogs are exercise twice daily (weather permitting) in one of several large exercise areas, ranging from 600 sq.ft.to 1200 sq.ft. These look out onto open fields. During these exercise sessions we play ball, tug of war etc. with the more energetic dogs and in the case of older pets or toy dogs just give them a bit of a cuddle, thus ensuring all dogs get sufficient human contact and hopefully do not become too bored.
As a pet owner myself I fully understand owners’ concerns about being parted from their pets. However, most of the dogs and cats in our care are much loved and often very pampered members of family and although it takes time for them to come to know and trust us, with proper care and attention most animals adapt very quickly to their new surroundings and come through the quarantine period with remarkable ease. Obviously any information owners can give us about their pet’s likes/dislikes, food preferences, previous medical history etc. does help us to settle them in more quickly and generally feel more at home during their stay with us. Above all else all the pets in our care receive LOTS of care and attention.
