Based at 318 Mountain Road, Sentry Hill / Lepperton,  Sentry Hill Cattery is a secure and modern facility purpose designed and built late 2016 to human habitable standards.

Being conveniently located on State Highway 3A makes us the perfect choice whether you are heading North or South. We are only 6 minutes from New Plymouth airport, and a short easy drive from New Plymouth, Bell Block, Waitara, Inglewood and Stratford.  Great parking and turning options available for motorhomes and buses and vehicles with trailers.

We pride ourselves on offering a high-quality personalised service for the individual needs of our guests, in a healthy environment full of natural light and fresh air. The safety and comfort of your pet is priority, and being a smaller establishment, personal attention with lots of love and cuddles is guaranteed.

Set on a rural lifestyle block, the cattery looks over paddocks peacefully grazing sheep.

The main cattery building offers a range of accommodation to suit the needs of any feline, including semi communal living (with both indoor and outdoor exercise areas and roomy private night cages), Individual full height units, and family units with their own window.

Lots of fun things for our guests to see and do, to exercise mind and body and to stimulate their senses. For the full on cat, there is catnip and grasses to smell and nibble, jungle gym play areas, scratch poles, toys, farm animals to watch, a fish pond and bird aviary just outside which are sure to entertain for hours.  For the more chilled cat, there are plenty of nice warm and sunny spots to just relax and snooze the day away.

Boarding is also available for small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and small to medium sized caged seed eating birds when accompanying a cat or cats from the same family. These are housed separately from the main cattery building.

Sorry we do not board dogs.

An isolation and kitten unit is available in a separate building from the main cattery.
Emergency vets are available 24/7.
