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 play pens, separated from one another with white solid-core boards. All play pens are placed individually on the floor, and are not stacked vertically for hygiene and safety reasons.
Dimensions of deluxe play pens: 1.6 m (L) by 1.6 m (W) by 1.2 m (H)
Note: We do not use timber hutches as they are more difficult to maintain odour-free and germ-free.
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 litter trays and floors of pens are cleaned and disinfected with F10 daily. The trays 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.
Litter trays will be provided. These will be cleaned and disinfected with 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.
Bowls are supplied for drinking water.
Please bring your own water bottles (if required) as our experience has been that most rabbits would not use our drinking ottles.
Bottles or bowls are washed daily and replenished with fresh supplies of cleaning drinking water.
All bunnies are given fresh vegetables twice daily, 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.
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
– twice daily serving of vegetables
– daily cleaning and disinfection of flooring and litter tray
– daily rinsing of water bottle & dishes
– pats & cuddles
– use of equipment: litter trays, bowls & toys
– climate control (heating & cooling with reverse cycle split system)
– 24/7 security
Complimentary photo updates are provided via SMS, Whatsapp or i-Messages at least twice a week.
Grooming services are not included in the boarding fees. However, a daily brushing service is available as an optional extra 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 inspection tours on scheduled Saturdays only. Please pre-book your appointment when these become available.
Inspection tours will not be possible without prior pre-booked appointments. Walk-in requests for inspection tours will not be entertained, to reduce disruption to our work schedules and to maintain a quiet environment for our boarders.
