REPTILE BOARDING

snakes alive have been providing reptile boarding since 2008 so whether you need care for your animal whilst you are on holiday, moving home or perhaps in need of some respite do not hesitate to contact us. 

 

Our boarding facility is run from a purpose built animal room in our back garden which benefits from a high level of supervision and security, whereas a pet shop is un-monitored after business hours.  Enclosures are maintained to a high standard and are adapted to suit each occupant's individual requirements no matter the size or habitat. As with all our animals welfare and enclosure checks are performed and documented daily for your peace of mind. 

This high level of personal care comes at the flat rate of £5.00 per animal, per day; we even offer a 10% discount on multiple animals sharing an enclosure. For example if you have two lizards sharring an enclosure you would receive a 10% discount. To make life even easier will even perform home visits to care for animals you are unable to transport*.

All animals are kepted in their own enclosures and not mixed with others. 

 

We do not board cats, dogs, rodents or birds

*Additional fees apply.

WHY CHOOSE US?

PERSONALISED CARE

We have individually controlled enclosures so we can regulate the optimum temperature and daylight hours each occupant receives. Daily care and feeding is specialised for the species alongside your recommendations. 

You are welcome to come and view the enclosures prior to boarding your animal. Feel free to email us to discuss when is convenient. 

5* AAL LICENCE

Having run at Zoo standards for five years and holding the Performing Animals Licence we promptly received our 5* Animal Activities Licence (AAL) when the law was passed and are regulated by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council. This licence helps demonstrates our dedication to animal care, welfare and hygiene standards. 

HOME-BASED CARE

By providing home-based animal boarding we can provide around the clock care for your animals. This is particularly beneficial for nocturnal animals that are not always seen or active during the daytime. Late night and early morning checks allow for more natural routines and enables us to notice changes in behaviour and health quicker.  

tortoise

Thank you for taking in the missing tortoise we found at such short notice. Not knowing if it required specialist care your professionalism assured us it would be well looked after until the owners were located. Thankfully the tortoise was returned in good health thanks to your kindness. Much appreciated."
