Top Small Animal Boarding related questions

Small animal boarding services can accommodate your pet for as long as you need. Whether you’re taking a quick trip for the weekend or travelling overseas for a few weeks, a Tasker can care for your pet while you’re away.

Small animal boarding can provide an ideal setup for pet care. Also, this option is suitable if you’d rather not have someone come to your home while you’re away. Regardless, pet sitting such as guinea pig sitting is an excellent option if you prefer to keep your pet in a familiar environment. Airtasker connects you to all types of pet care services like guinea pig hotels, guinea pig sitters, and more. 

Yes, Taskers can provide everything for your pet during their stay, including hay, bedding, water bowls, pellets, and tasty treats. But feel free to provide your own pet food if your pet has a specific diet. A pet food delivery service can pick up your pet food from your go-to pet store. Then, they can deliver the food to your doorstep or straight to your chosen pet boarding location.

Small animal accommodation facilities range from cage sharing to indoor and outdoor enclosures. For example, one hutch can house two rabbits, while other cages can accommodate multiple hamsters and other caged animals. Indoor enclosures can provide a warm and safe environment for your pet. Meanwhile, outdoor spaces can allow your pet to explore safely. Airtasker connects you to animal boarding services for the accommodation you prefer. 

Include the necessary details on your task, such as the type of animal you have, number of animals, pickup and dropoff dates, and your location. Also, mention any specific feeding instructions so your Tasker can make any adjustments. As for special requests, don’t be shy to confirm whether your Tasker cleans and disinfects hutches between guest stays.

Yes, some Taskers may have experience in administering medication. Make sure to mention if your pet has any special medical requirements, recent illnesses, lumps, or other health conditions. This way, you can find a Tasker with the skills and equipment to care for your pet. Some Taskers may also have a go-to veterinarian who can come in for an urgent consultation, should your pet need one. 

What do small animal boarding services include?

Small animal boarding services include guinea pig boarding, hamster boarding, and rabbit boarding. Taskers can also accommodate other small animals like birds, fish, mice, and reptiles like lizards, snakes, and turtles. Some Taskers can care for more exotic pets like hedgehogs, ferrets, spiders, frogs, and iguanas. Whatever pet you have, our platform helps you find reliable animal boarding services. 


A small pet boarding service may include collecting your pet, feeding and playing, and dropping them off when you arrive home. Furthermore, boarding for small pets includes short and long-term boarding. Let us know what you need, and we’ll connect you to available Taskers who can help you out! Here are standard inclusions of small animal boarding services.


Animal pickup and dropoff 

Your Tasker can come over to your home and pick up your pet, so you can focus on packing and preparing for your trip. Picking up your pet can be a breeze, especially if your small animal boarding Tasker lives near you. When you get back from your trip, your Tasker can bring your pet back to your home. But if your animal boarding service can’t do pick up and dropoff, no problem! You can easily book a pet transport service via Airtasker as well. 


Short-term and long-term animal boarding

Animal boarding services specialise in short-term or long-term accommodation–or both. When putting up a task, specify how long you need animal boarding. Then, you can start getting offers from pet hotels and animal boarding providers near you. Book a short-term animal boarding service if you’re spending the night or weekend out of town. Or avail a long-term animal boarding service to care for your pet if you’ll be away for weeks on a long holiday or business trip. If you also have a dog, our platform can connect you to dog boarding services, so all your pets are well taken care of!   


Feeding and playtime with small pets

A small animal boarding expert can provide your pet with pellets, hay, or other healthy meals. Taskers can adjust the meals and procedures based on your instructions and your pet’s specific diet. If necessary, a Tasker can also administer medication your pet needs. Animal boarding providers can also ensure your pet gets enough playtime for their overall well-being. A Tasker with an enclosed outdoor area can give your rabbit or guinea pig lots of space to run around. 


Small animal monitoring and updates

For your extra peace of mind, Taskers can send you text, photo, or video updates of your pet during their stay. We know how hard it can be to be away from your pet, let alone leave them in a new environment! 


Request updates at any time via email or SMS, or agree on a regular interval (e.g. daily, every other day, etc.) with your Tasker. Or if you prefer to be undisturbed during your trip, you may ask your Tasker to only contact you for questions or emergencies.
