Professional Pet Boarding Services

We provide professional and warming small animal care and boarding services that you can rely upon. If you have to be away for a vacation, business conference, and other engagements, we are the best choice in Newcastle and Salt Ash areas. You can bring your little pets to us at our premises in Salt Ash NSW where they will be kept in comfortable, safe surroundings and get all the attention they need on your specified instructions. Your small pet will be looked after as they would at your home.

We can also come to you (if you are in an area we operate), and look after your little pet from their own fixed hutch, pen, cage or enclosure. Owners will have to supply cage, food, medication (if required), bedding and instructions. If you require your pet to be looked after for a longer period, we can purchase extra food such as seed, pellets, fruit and vegetables so your little pet always has fresh food on hand. Extra food or supplies will be billed on your final invoice on your return.


  • Boarding – Pricing will depend on size of cage, amount of attention needed, such as time out of cage to fly, walk around or play and medication. Pricing starts at $20.00 per day. 
    Pet Sitting – $35.00 – $40.00 per visit if we come to you (if in area we operate).
  • Note: Noonies only accepts cages with plastic bottoms for hygiene reasons.

Call us on 0411398395 for a quote. Book in early for holiday periods because space is limited.

Very happy with the service at Noonies. Our dogs are usually very anxious at typical grooming environments but they were very comfortable during and afterwards. Highly recommend ????

Carol did an amazing job on out cavoodles. Chloe and Ava looked so good and very calm and relaxed. Our eldest cavoodle has anxiety and Carol spend the time to reassure her that everything was ok.

Carol is a wonderfully calm pet groomer. She gave great advice and checked the cut with me during the groom. I took Bowie, my 5 month cavoodle, for his first groom and he came home calm, happy, soft and fluffy. Darrin was great when I called to make the booking and explained everything so well. Thank you Carol and Darrin.
