Benefits of Cattery Quarantine Pick Up in Christchurch

All cats entering the country face a quarantine period at an approved facility, one of which is near Riverside cattery.

  • Pet unabandoned: Sometimes pets are released from quarantine before the owner has found a home. Until you are ready to welcome your furry friend home, we can collect them from the airport, board and care of them.
  • Home away from home: While with us, our bonding approach ensures that we can meet your cats’ needs and notice early signs of discomfort, with a nearby vet on call 24/7, to which all cats have access when required. Riverside cattery for the unvaccinated cat in Christchurch, safely caters for these unvaccinated cats in a building away from the cat hotel.
