The best bunny boarding in Melbourne! (Well, we think so)
Fresh Air & Natural Light
Exposure to natural light is possible through fly-screened windows and roof skylights.
Industrial grade extractor fans are used to extract stale air and to introduce fresh air into our boarding facility.
Reverse cycle refrigerative air-conditioning/heating units are used in our facility, and the ambient temperature is maintained at a comfortable level at all times.
All bunnies are housed in metal cages or metal play pens, separated from one another with white solid-core boards.
Our cages or playpens are placed on the floor individually. None are stacked vertically.
Our aim is to maintain a clean and hygienic environment, to reduce the risk of infectious diseases being spread from boarder to boarder.
The bases of cages or pens and litter trays are cleaned and disinfected with F10 daily. They are also washed with detergent under running water after each bunny checks out. All foam board separators are washed and disinfected when soiled or when each bunny checks out of the facility.
In addition, a UV air steriliser is used to prevent the transmission of air-borne viruses and bacteria amongst our bunny boarders.
Before and after our daily cleaning and disinfection routine:
Igloos or Boxes
Rabbits love hiding in burrows. However, in a man-made environment, this is not possible. Providing them somewhere to hide gives them a sense of security.
The largest-sized igloo hide-outs are provided in cages, while tunnels are provided in play pens.
Upon request, cardboard boxes are provided for bunnies who love to chew cardboard or are too big for the igloo hide-outs.
Litter trays will be provided. These will be cleaned and disinfected with vanodine or F10 on a daily basis.
There is a choice of a corner tray with a metal grid, or a rectangular tray with or without an additional sieve-like tray.
The corner tray with metal grid will keep your bunny’s feet from becoming soiled, and also, prevent access to the paper litter pellets, which are discarded daily and replenished with fresh supplies.
The rectangular litter tray will be lined with newspaper, which is covered with hay. There is an option to add a sieve-like tray, to limit access to the soiled newspaper and to keep your bunny’s feet dry.
There is a choice of a bowl or a bottle with a large spout. Bottles or bowls are washed daily and replenished with fresh supplies of cleaning drinking water. However, our experience has been that most rabbits would not use our drinking bottles, so it would be advisable to bring along your own bottles.
All bunnies are given fresh vegetables everyday, and an unlimited supply of oaten hay.
There is an option to purchase extra serving of timothy hay at $1 per day. This is in addition to unlimited oaten hay, which is included in the boarding rates.
Lucerne hay will only be given to bunnies below the age of 6 months.
If you would like your bunnies to be fed dry pellets or mixes, be sure to pack an ample supply for the duration of their stay, as these are not included in our rates.
Socialisation / Playtime
All bunnies are socialised and provided with daily cuddles and pats. However, bunnies from different families will not come into contact during their stay. This is to avoid the risk of fights and injuries.
In the interest of infection control, bunnies do not share any facilities during their stay. They remain in their accommodation for the full duration of their stay.
Boarding fees include:
– unlimited supply of oaten hay
– daily serving of vegetables
– daily cleaning and disinfection of flooring, litter tray, water bottle & dishes
– cuddles & pats
– use of equipment: litter tray, water bottle, dishes & toys
– climate control
– 24/7 security
Weekly photo updates via our Facebook page are complimentary for all boarding bunnies, while weekly video updates via our Facebook page are available for bunnies booked into tent pens or teepee pens.
Note: Updates via phone / email / Facebook messages are not part of our service, and may incur additional charges.
Grooming services are not included in the boarding fees. However, various grooming services are available as optional extras during boarding stays.
Refer to our packing list as a guide for packing for your bunny’s boarding stay.
Our boarding facility is open for tours only on Saturdays between 11 am to 12:30 pm by appointment only. Other tour times are not possible, so as to minimise disruption to our boarders’ quiet enjoyment of our boarding facility during the week.
