I'm looking for somewhere locally that can look after my house bunny, Mikey, for a week while i go away.
My bunnies normally go to my mums and Mikey normally stays indoors but they have now got a parrot and wont be able to have Mikey inside. Buster and Paisley are outside bunnies so they will be fine, its just Mikey :(

Any ideas ?

Thanks guys

I've got a large heated hutch that I use for house rabbits.

He can board in that if you get stuck. :D

Hi Lindsey...sorry i've taken my time to answer this.....I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to have him due to no indoor space......But my fosterer Angie, would probably be able to! :D
She is excellent and I'd trust her with my buns...well obviously I do! :lol: :lol: He would be very spoilt and treated like a prince.....she lives in Enderby so you could bring him over when visiting Uncle David! :D
Let me know if you would like to take this up..

Yep, Carys (Birdiebun) and I have keys to each others house, it works out well for us. I couldn't board all of my animals, I would have to make about 10 car trips to drop them off :lol: . I'm always happy to help out anyone who is local to me :D

Alex dream Bun was my last permanent addition (No 11). But of the three dumped baby buns - 1 survived. it's unlikely that she will be going anywhere now (Vets bills to date have totalled over £300 & Gaz hasn't complained once - I think she's staying). Then there's a temp Free ads bun, going to live at my friends house - she just got spayed today.

Hiya Sweetie - long time no speak - hope you and your furries are all fine and dandy!

Might be worth folks just being a bit careful re Boarders - I think this particular place used to be based in Northfield prior to moving to Bromsgrove and I don't know of their facilities to give any feedback one way or the other but might be worth checking what their policy is on the bunnies they take - i.e must they be vaccinated :?: - I know sometimes anything is preferable to a bunny being left home but as an ideal vaccinated bunnies only would be a preference for me I think :wink:

Hi Bunnytales, furries are all fine and dandy, driving me up the wall with their moult though :roll: nice cream carpet doesnt bode well with a big black bun stomping round the place :lol: :lol: :lol:
!!
Ive used this hotel a couple of times, its a lady named Jackie, shes lovely. Proof of vaccination has to be shown, she wont take an unvaccinated bun at all. She has indoor and out door runs, all massive!! The buns are truly spoilt!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hiya, please can I just reiterate something that Lany (bunnytales) has said.
When boarding your bunnies you need to consider very carefully the following:
Firstly if you have an informal pet sitting set up with a friend, if anything goes wrong friendships can be tested to the limit.
There will be no insurance cover etc.
If using a boarding establishment, ask for references, visit and view the set up , make sure you are asked about vaccinations and a Boarding Contract is exchanged between both parties.

Rescues and Sanctuaries rely upon donations raised from offering a boarding service to help with their huge costs.
if you are in a position to have a holiday, please consider using these facilities as you are helping other bunnies in addition to your own.
Good boarding establishments will provide great care for your bunnies and lots of space, plus they are in general very experienced to deal with any situation that may arise.
Bunnies seem to thrive in a change of environment too, but of course will be glad to see their Mummys and Daddys on return from their holidays.
I think perhaps people do not realise how much time and effort those offering a boarding service have taken to set up special areas for Clients bunnies. nor the fact that we forego having holidays ourselves to ensure other people can relax on theirs.

Best wishes

well I can certainly see why some members with large numbers of animals would use a friend as the cost would be extortionate to board :shock: :shock: :shock: some people struggle to save for a holiday let alone pay the equilivant again to board their pets :shock: :shock:

I personally dont think a friendship would be tested should something happen to the animal whilst in their care, you take the risk yes but you would not blame them if something happened. You can loose a beloved pet at anytime so if it happened while you were on holiday is no different really. If you are asking a friend then that means that you trust them to look after your pet and do everything possible should anything happen or you would'nt be asking them in the first place.

Eddie bun is insured and Marcel will be too soon so all I would do is 1. instruct my vets. 2. Leave my friend the excess money to cover both and extra money to cover any other costs :)

Some boarding establishments are pretty expensive so I understand why many dont use them :(
