Licensed boarding cattery with standard and deluxe exercise areas

Dorwell is a purpose built, family run cattery. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park we are easily accessible, being only 200 yards from the main A38 at Wrangaton.

Care and Accommodation

Dorwell provides excellent individual care and accommodation for your cat:
  • Each spacious unit has its own heating and exercise area
  • Our deluxe units have full height sleeping areas
  • All units have sneeze barriers fitted between runs
  • All runs open into a lockable safety passage

All cats will automatically be covered by pet insurance upon their arrival and for the duration of their stay. However, this will not cover any existing medical conditions your cat may have on arrival.

All cats must have an up to date vaccination certificate (flu and enteritis) and this must be shown on or prior to arrival. We reserve the right to call your veterinary surgeon on your behalf should we feel it necessary for the welfare of your cat.

Unfortunately male cats over age of 8 months that have not been neutered cannot be boarded.
