Dog and Cat Boarding
We are licensed by Plymouth City Council – our licence number is: ABO004.
By using our boarding service you will directly help us shelter and rehome hundreds of unwanted and abandoned animals in your local area. All the proceeds made from our boarding service go straight back to the charity.
We have dedicated staff here at Gables Farm who have great passion for animal welfare and vast experience of working with dogs and cats, especially nervous animals with behavioural problems and/or special needs.
Dog Boarding AccommodationAll our kennels consist of an indoor heated sleeping area and a covered outdoor run.
We can supply beds, blankets, bowls, toys, treats and food. However if you would like to bring your own you are welcome to do so as this may help to settle your dog in.
During their stay with us your dog will be exercised regularly and have access to our secure off lead paddocks so they can really stretch their legs!
Cat Boarding Accommodation
Our cattery consists of an indoor pen with a heat pad and a covered outside run for fresh air and exercise.
We can supply beds, blankets, bowls, toys, treats and food. However you are welcome to bring your cats scratching post and home comforts, as this will help us to settle your cat in.

Your cat must be fully vaccinated i.e. part 1 and part 2 administered, with a vaccination certificate showing part 1 and 2 have been given. Please bring your cat’s vaccination certificate with you when you drop your cat off.
Every cat should be vaccinated against 3 core diseases:
- feline panleucopaenia (or infectious enteritis)
- feline herpesvirus
- feline calicivirus (both causes of “cat flu”)
These diseases can have devastating consequences for a cat and it is easy to prevent them by regular vaccination.
All cat vaccinations should be boosted every 12 months WITHIN THE MONTH IT IS DUE. If you have missed your cats booster due date, you will need to ask your vet to restart your cats vaccination. You will need to have part 1 and part 2 administered before your cat is due to board with us.
Your dog must be fully vaccinated i.e. part 1 and part 2 administered, with a vaccination certificate showing part 1 and 2 have been given. Please bring your dog’s vaccination certificate with you when you drop your cat off.

- Infectious canine hepatitis
All dogs coming in to board with us must also be vaccinated against kennel cough. This is an extra vaccination that you will need to ask your vet to administer at least 14 clear days in advance of their stay with us.

If the kennel cough annual booster has lapsed over the due date then you get your dog re-vaccinated at least 14 clear days before the day your dog is due to board with us.
Your vet may have a different view on vaccinations but we follow our own vets advice as they have assessed the risks on our site. We have to be strict with these vaccination guidelines as we house un-vaccinated stray, unwanted and abandoned cats and dogs in a separate area on our site which may pose a risk to your pet if it is not fully vaccinated as above.

- 9.30am – 10.45 am
