Board your exotic pet at New England Wildlife Center!


New England Wildlife Center is proud to offer boarding for your exotic pets! Our Odd Pet Vet veterinary practice and boarding services are limited to:

  • Birds
  • Reptiles
  • Small companion exotic mammals

Are you going on a trip and don’t have anywhere to leave your exotic pet? We are pleased to be able to offer boarding services at competitive rates. If you provide food, the fee starts at $15 per cage with one animal per day. If medication is required, there is an additional $5 per animal per day fee.

Leave your pets in the hands of expert caretakers when you go out of town, and relax knowing your animal is safe and sound with us! They are carefully cared for by veterinarians and veterinary technicians.

Our exotic boarding provides:

  • Veterinarian on premises everyday
  • Experienced staff that takes extra care to make note of any problems or changes in your pet’s physical and emotional well-being. They pick up on “Iggy” feeling lonely, etc. and act on it right away.
  • Temperature-controlled rooms
  • Playtime
  • Caging cleaned daily
  • Medication administered (if required) by a veterinary technologist
  • Unlimited TLC is free of charge!
  • Competitive rates

You must supply your pet’s caging while boarding with us. Exotic animals stress easily and if they can continue to be in their familiar cages and receive the same foods, it will limit their anxiety while in new surroundings. Also, bringing their own food helps to alleviate stomach upset usually associated with abrupt changes in diet.

Owners of pets with special needs should speak with us before leaving their pet. We will happily administer any medications, supplements or vitamins while your pet is boarding with us for a small additional daily fee.

RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Our boarding area is very popular. If you must cancel your reservation, please do so at least 48 hours prior to the drop-off date.


  • Start at $15 per day – Standard (additional $5 if New England Wildlife Center provides food)
