Vaccinations

In order to ensure that your cat does not get sick, Cat Haven Boarding has a strict vaccination policy that unvaccinated cats will not be permitted to board with us. All cats must have proof of current vaccination. If your cat has never been vaccinated or has not been vaccinated in over 12 months, there is a 5 week process. This consists of an annual vaccination, a booster two weeks later, and then a two week rest before your cat is allowed to board. Your cat must have been vaccinated with a minimum of an F3 within the last 12 months.

While every cat has its own kennel, putting your cat into a social environment, such as Boarding, is the time you want its vaccinations at their maximum effectiveness. A cat can be carrying the flu without showing any symptoms and it can shed the flu virus simply by shedding fur or dander. Our vaccination policy is so strict, purely to protect your cat while you are away.

Illness and Emergency

Your cat may find the boarding situation stressful or may become ill and Cat Haven may have to treat your cat in this event or arrange treatment by your own vet. You will be asked to sign an authorisation for Cat Haven to arrange emergency care for your cat if required prior to leaving your pet and you will be liable for any veterinary costs incurred. However, you can be assured that as WA's largest cat welfare shelter, we know cats well and are equipped to deal with most situations.

What to Know

  • All cats must be sterilised.
  • All cats must be over 6 months old.
  • Vaccination history provided prior to drop off
  • We charge $2.50 a day for administering medication.
  • We are unable to accept Diabetic cats due to medication timing.

Drop off and Pick Up

Drop off and pick up times are between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm except Sundays 10.00am and 1.00pm. A fee applies to early and late drop off times and an appointment must be arranged prior. If you come to Cat Haven boarding outside these hours without an appointment, a $25 charged will be applied to your booking to be paid on arrival at Cat Haven! Your cat must be in a standard retail secure cat carrier when entering and exiting Cat Haven. This is simply to ensure that your cat cannot escape in transit and it is easy for us to evacuate if absolutely necessary. We recommend that you keep your cat inside the morning before you are coming in as they often know what is going on and will inevitably decide to go for a wander just when it is time to go.


What to Bring for Cat Boarding

The food we supply for boarders is a wide variety of Premium Hill’s Science and Prescription Diet dry and wet food, and Dine wet food. Ask us if you need a different brand of food and we will check if we have it available, or you can supply your own food.

We provide beds, bedding, blankets, litter trays, bowls, toys, scratching posts and food, heat and ice pack, and a lot of love, and we will do whatever we can to ensure your cat is as comfortable as possible.

You are welcome to place your cats favourite blanket in their carrier for scent familiarity however we are unable to accept other personal items.

"Thank you - yet again, for taking such good care of my favourite furry friends.
It's always a good sign when I turn up to collect them that they ignore me - in other words "Oh - you're back" with no enthusiasm whatsoever! So comforting to know they are so well cared for. It's always so hard to leave them, especially Jack with his spoilt boy temperament and need for medication - you are making it easier!
You and your team in Boarding provide an excellent service Bronwyn - as you are aware I have been boarding my cats for quite some years now, and you are carrying on the comforting style that has been improved over the years.Thanks again - very grateful." Joan, Northbridge WA
