In the heart of the Somerset Levels, St Giles Animal Centre is situated on 4 acres of land with 5* rated boarding and cattery facilities. With a longstanding, dedicated team and years of experience between us, our aim is to give your pet as much as a home-from-home environment as possible, giving you a safe and familiar place for your pets to stay while you can’t be with them.
We offer a range of services for your dogs, cats and small animals, all provided in a professional and personal manner. We treat each pet as an individual, as if they were our own, and do all that we can to make their stay at St Giles Animal Centre full of fun.
Our hardworking, qualified and devoted team receive regular training in animal first aid, behaviour and animal husbandry, whilst always working to ensure a great stay for your pets.
With a Veterinary Clinic and qualified animal trainer/behaviourist on-site, we are able to offer you peace of mind during your pet’s stay with us no matter what their medical or behavioural requirements may-be.
Our set up has been designed with your pets in mind and, with a large selection of suite layouts, our boarding blocks give us the opportunity to match the requirements of your pets. We have a variety to choose from including a quiet block beneficial for senior dogs, puppies and those who are particularly nervous. We supply a range of bedding types and underfloor heating to keep your pet warm and cosy all year round.
During the day your canine companion has full access to both their indoor and outdoor facilities and, for those in more sociable dog blocks, an opportunity for them to say hello to their neighbours in the suite next door.
Our multiple on-site paddocks offer your canine companions a safe, fun and secure place to explore, packed with enrichment activities and toys for them to enjoy. All our guests receive multiple walks, playtime and countless amounts of fuss throughout each day of their stay.
When it comes to dinner time, we know just how important your pet’s routine is and we will always follow your guidance on their feeding regime.
We are pleased to offer a selection of our own branded dry food (for dogs) suitable for even those with hypoallergenic tummys, whilst also stocking high quality kibble for cats and a variety of wet foods to meet your pet’s dietary requirements at no additional cost. Of course, you are always welcome to bring your pet’s own food and treats in too and we recommend that you do so if they are on a specific diet. We do request, if possible, that any small animals have their chosen diet supplied for their stay on arrival.
Our cattery includes a raised sleeping area that is fully insulated, heated and stocked with lots of soft bedding, providing a warm and comfortable environment for your cat to snuggle down into and relax.
The pens have a variety of levels and areas to hide within. With regularly updated cat towers and a selection of toys, we are able to offer your feline friend the tools with which to exhibit their natural behaviour whilst providing entertainment in a safe and secure space. You can feel relaxed knowing that they will have the love, attention and fuss that they would get at home. We also provide cat grass for our clients – a natural substance to help with calming.
The cattery has soft, gentle music played throughout the day to create a calming ambiance.
Knowing how fastidiously clean cats tend to be, we leave their regularly cleaned litter trays on the lower level so they have separate living and toileting space.
With no pre-booked ‘check in’ or ‘check out’ times you are welcome to book in or collect your much loved family member(s) at any time throughout our opening hours making the checking in and out of your pets a less stressful experience.
