Our Aim

We started Hoppy Holidays as we have a real passion for looking after our own rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters and giving them the best care possible. More and more people now own small pets and want the very best care for them when they go away. We provide a real home from home environment for your small pets so you can go away knowing that your pets are in safe hands and having a lovely holiday too. 

Who We Are

Hoppy Holidays was established in 2016 and is owned and managed by Keith and Jacqueline Hitchen from our home in Moortown, North Leeds. 

Jacqueline has looked after an array of pets since childhood and Keith has over seventeen years experience of caring for our own rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters.

We pride ourselves on making sure your pet/s are safe, comfortable, happy and loved as one of the family while they are with us. We ensure they have lots of human company, interaction and handling. Our customers have included many rabbits and guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, gerbils, degus and an African Pygmy hedgehog! We're friendly and approachable and have built up good relationships with our human customers too. Many of our customers are local and there are others who have come from North and East Yorkshire to bring their pets to have a holiday with us. 

To update our skills we completed a small animal first aid training course so in the unlikely event of accident or illness, we are following the up to date standards of practice for pre and post veterinary care. We have fully stocked animal first aid kits on the premises and have experience of administering medication, eye and ear drops, treatment for skin conditions and syringe feeding.
