Your pet is our priority, we keep them happy healthy and entertained


We have spacious suites with a sizeable run and a sleeping compartment that we can close off at night and have underfloor heating, making them very cosy during the winter months. We have two fantastic  outside enclosures for exercise and social time.


Our cattery provides an environment where your cat can feel at home.  Each spacious suite has a heated pet pad, cosy bedding and a snuggle house.  The suites have access to the lounge where they can make themselves at home on the couch, lie on the tower houses or play in the outside enclosure


We offer a complete grooming service from washes to full clips for all types of dogs and cats. A safe and caring approach from our groomer builds a trusting relationship with your pet and makes the experience as stress free as possible.


Are you busy working long hours and too tired to take your dog for a walk when you get home? Ripponvale Pet Retreat’s doggy daycare is a great way for your dog to spend time with their four-legged best friends to exercise and interact with others in a fun and social atmosphere.
