Garden City Pets is here for your whole family, exotic and pocket pets included!

Our private, stress-free environment is the perfect place to board your exotic family pets. We care for a wide variety of small pets (i.e. animals other than dogs or cats) including rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, guinea pigs, rodents, birds, fish, and reptiles. For the comfort of your unique companion, we ask that you bring its own supplies: cage, food, bowls, bedding and anything else your pet may need while boarding.

Should you pet require a tank/aquarium set-up or require specific climate-control for your pet, please contact us in advance to confirm what items you will need to bring for your pet’s stay with us. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate venomous pets or primates of any kind. Our boarding facility provides animals with fresh water that is changed daily and pets are fed per owner’s directions. Owners are welcome to bring treats, fruits and vegetables for appropriate pets to enjoy during their stay.

If you have questions regarding the possible boarding of your unique pet, we encourage you to contact us to discuss in detail how we may best serve your pet’s needs.
