Longtail Pet Motel

Hamilton Boarding Kennels & Cattery


The proprietors of “Longtail Pet Motel”, Trish and Kevin, have made the difficult decision to permanently close the boarding kennels and cattery, after 35 years serving the needs of pet owners.

All existing bookings for pet accommodation within the three weeks following this notice will be honoured, but unfortunately any other bookings, including Christmas holidays 2020/21, will have to be declined; those pet owners who have already booked will be contacted accordingly.

Trish and Kevin take this opportunity to thank all our repeat clients over the years, as well as past managers and staff who contributed to the smooth operation of the business during peak holiday periods.

The closure of the boarding kennels and cattery will not affect the ongoing provision of pet transport.

Kevin will continue this service under the new business name; “Hamilton Pet Transport”, including both nationwide and international destinations. We are registered with C.A.A. and N.Z Government accredited exporter, as well as a preferred supplier to Air New Zealand along with other international carriers

Kevin and Trish sincerely regret any inconvenience caused by the Longtail Pet Motel closure, once again extending our gratitude to clients and staff for supporting the business during the past 35 years.

Thank you.
