View Full Version : Bunny Boarding - South London

12-01-2005, 09:59 PM
Anyone know of anywhere? I used to take my two to a lovely lady over in Swanley (Kent) who ran Rabbit Runs. Unfortunately she stopped her business, since then I've not found anywhere to take the buns. My housemate used to be really good and take over for me when i went away but now I've moved in with bf its a problem again.

Any suggestions? They really need to be kept inside, as they've never been outside bunnies. I've called loads of catteries etc but with no joy.

My back up is one of my vets (the specialist one) in East Sheen buts its a 90 mins drive each way and costs 10 per bunny per day! (plus the cages are tiny, and I'm not sure how long they'd get let out to hop)

Please help!

Hi sorry i can't help, I used to board rabbits but just run a boarding cattery now.

There is lady called Jane who runs bunny boarding in West Drayton , Middx. called Furry Friends (not sure of phone number but director enquiries will have it). All of my customers went to her instead.

I think she boards them in converted stables at her home.

Ooh, yes, actually I know the nice lady from Critter Sitter (nr. Heathrow) too. (from the list) She is very experienced & caring with bunnies.

nice one, near heathrow is good, I live in Clapham so heathrow is a fair drive but we can just drop bunnies off on the way to the airport - this could work for longer holidays? The bunny houses look fab! The rates are definitely better plus my buns both have long term health problems so need daily drugs - and Critters is obviously run by experienced bunny carers!

Am going to check the Hove one out too as thats not too horribly far to go.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Could still do with one local ish - if I'm just away for a weekend its ridiculous to drive the buns that far, they hate going int eh car so won;t even have recovered from the stress by the time I go to collect them!

My friend has a pet shop in South Norwood (near Croydon). This is not your normal pet shop as she loves her animals unlike most! She takes in animals for boarding. They are outside during the day and indoors during the night. Not sure whether this would be useful for you. They get the best diet around and plenty of cuddles.
