“Jane visits my house to bunny sit my two house bunnies when I am away for a short time. She’s absolutely fantastic with them and goes above and beyond her duties. … She’s full of knowledge and always helps me with advice if I ask for it.”
“We have been using Jane to look after our rabbits ever since we met her through the RSPCA. …We really appreciated the posts made on Facebook of our rabbits as we could see how they were doing whilst we were away. We would thoroughly recommend Jane and her boarding facilities and feel totally reassured when we go on holiday that our rabbits are in excellent hands and will be totally pampered by Jane!!”
“Just picked up 2 very happy chinchillas. I can’t thank you enough for looking after my girls while we were away.”
“Jane looked after our 8 rabbits, including a disabled bunny, and our elderly cat for a week (2 boarded with Jane and the rest she visited at home). Very well looked after, Jane is very knowledgeable and caring and provided an excellence service. We will definitely be booking again for our next holiday, thank you! :D”
“Jane looked after our three rats for a week. They came back to us happy, healthy and well cared for. They even seem alot more socially bonded than before they went away. I believe that Jane might be a rat whisperer.”
“Small paws were just exceptional looking after my two rabbits. They really do give the personal touch to your animals and treat them as their own.”
“Not only does Pearl love going on her holidays to Small Paws but she also found a friend and we have adopted Nelson. Jane is knowledgable and caring and does everything she can to make her guests feel at home. Pearl and Nelson can’t wait for us to go away again!”
