About Now Boarding Pet Hotels

pet hotel

As the UK’s premier small pet hotel group, Now Boarding Pet Hotels provides luxury holiday boarding for small caged animals through our network of home and garden based franchises.

The pet industry is one of the fastest growing sectors within the UK, with spend on pet services at an all time high as owners choose to take better care of their pets.

Owners are no longer happy to ask neighbours and friends to commit to looking after their pets whilst they go away on holiday.

Our successful business model has proven that people are more than prepared to pay for quality small pet boarding services, giving them peace of mind whilst they are away for business or pleasure.

Started in 2011, demand for our services rapidly increased year on year. After initially expanding the original pet hotel to try to meet demand, we began franchising the business in order to reach out to customers who were choosing to travel some distance to use our services.

We now operate from six locations across the South-East, and are looking to expand further across the UK.

Our franchise is unique, and a first in the UK. Whilst there many other businesses offering boarding services for cats and dogs, we are the only UK franchise offering specialist boarding for other pet types, including the UK’s one million pet rabbits, 750,000 guinea pigs, and hundreds of thousands of other small furies, reptiles and birds.

We are a family run business, and our franchisees are considered to be part of the Now Boarding family. Coming from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, our franchisees run their businesses on either a full-time or part-time basis, fitting in with existing commitments and family.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to work flexible hours from home, earning a good income whilst caring for small pets.
