Important Small Pet Boarding Information

Regretfully our small pet boarding facility isn’t in a position to offer board to predatory animals like ferrets and cats.

  • To board your pet, we need any and all allergy information along with the pet’s vaccination history
  • We feed your pets a rich and diverse diet optimised to their nutritional needs, however, if you have a specific food for your pet you this will need to be provided to us.
  • If your small pet has a specific medical condition, this will need to be disclosed to our small pet boarding team before we can agree to the stay. 

For more information on our small pet boarding terms and conditions please get in contact with Shauna's Pet Shop today.

I got my hamster..

I got my hamster , Mishu, from Shauna's pet shop back in late September. They were super accommodating, with delivery service that was fast and on time! Their hamster enclosures are great and spacious and my baby is so happy with all the treats and toys we got from there. I would totally recommend getting your small pets and supplies from Shauna's pet shop rather than other big stores that don't care about the animals they sell.

Definitely the best pet shop..

Definitely the best pet shop in Dublin! I am always so happy with the brilliant service Shauna’s Pet Shop provides. Staff are super invested in the well-being of their animals and are always happy to help. I also just need to mention how friendly the employees are ☺️ Just brought home my newest family member today and couldn’t be more excited, she is active, happy and alert. Thank you all the lovely staff at Shaunas!

Shauna's Pet Shop is not olny amazing

Shauna's Pet Shop is not olny amazing and has everything your pet could ever need, but the staff goes out of their way to help the customers. I had an order delivered today while I was freaking out about a spider in my apartment (I have a huge phobia) and knowing they have spiders in the store I asked the deliverer if she could help me out in getting rid of it. She kindly agreed and took it out of my house. She was super nice about it! ..and I really appreciate it ! Shauna's will continue to be my go to Pet Shop in Dublin. Thank you!!

As a trainee vet nurse

As a trainee vet nurse I 100% recommend Shaunas pet shop! The staff are so friendly and so well trained. They really care about their animals. They won’t sell to just anyone and you can tell they have a great staff morale. Will definitely be returning and thank you for letting me adopt a hamster x -

Good pet shop..

Good pet shop in the centre of town has very friendly and helpful staff its quite small premises but with a lot of stock always feel like I'm going to knock stuff over

Always has the best brands..

Always has the best brands of bird food, the deliveries are always on time and overall it is my go to when I need pet supplies

NEZUMI - 14/01/2021

Best pet shop..

Best pet shop there is in Ireland, only gets and sells animals from ethical breeders so you can be sure you’re getting a healthy pet. Also only advises proper care for all animals, proper cage and tank sizes, proper set ups etc, this making them the only pet shop in the country that does so. Most other pet shops sell animals from rodent mills, and cages and other products that are unsuitable and unsafe for animals. So you know you’re getting the correct advice and best care when you go to Shauna’s :)

Couldn't recommend this shop more

Couldn't recommend this shop more, the staff Lisa and Robert were so helpful and informative. Lisa is also a dog trainer and groomer so she was a fountain of knowledge of how to keep my Irish Terrier puppy stimulated and secure in the correct lead and harness. I recommend bringing your dog in with you so they can try on the different harnesses and see what works best for them. It's also so important to support small Irish independent store's like this one 👍

Lovely place

Lovely place, the animals aren't treated as products and have adequate enclosures, a rare quality in the business. The owners are very sympathetic and know what they're doing. The care instructions on the enclosures brought a smile to my face, as it furthermore confirms this is the best place in Dublin for animal care.

Small Pet Boarding FAQ

  • How much is it to board a small pet for one day in your small pet boarding facility?

    We remain committed to offering competitively priced small pet boarding.
    The price is determined by the type of animal, the length of the stay and the specific care needs of the individual small pet.

  • My small pet has specific medical needs. Is my pet still eligible for your small pet boarding service?

    This depends on the medical needs of the animal. You will need to disclose the full extent of your animals care needs before we can make a decision.
    We treat every animal’s care needs on a case by case basis and do our very best to accept all small pets no matter their care needs.

  • What happens if my small pet gets sick while in your small pet boarding facility?

    Pets are monitored throughout the day in our small pet boarding facility. If a small pet gets sick we will continue to access the situation and make a decision if your pet needs to visit a vet. Permission to bring your animal to a vet and access to the animal’s medical history is part of our Terms and Conditions.
    In the event of a serious illness, we will notify you as soon as possible.
