Reptile Boarding Service

Blackpool Reptiles

Blackpool Reptiles & Aquatics has a dedicated Reptile Boarding Service which enables us to look after your animals whilst you are on holiday!

Our facility has thirty vivariums and various racks to cover all your animals boarding requirements. From chameleons through to tortoises, we can meet all your pets needs.

Situated at the rear of the building, in a private area, the boarding facility is ideally placed, providing comfort, privacy and security. We know how precious your animals are to you and provide them with the best possible care, offering you complete peace of mind so you can relax and enjoy your holiday.

During the holiday period you are advised to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Please note: Before your animal is placed into our boarding facility it will be examined for any signs of stress and/or illness. If we feel that your animal is not healthy enough we will reject it as we cannot risk the health of other boarders.
