Haven Boarding Kennels & Cattery in Ashford, Kent

about us

A warm welcome is promised when you visit the Haven

The Haven is owned by Brian Collins, my aim is to ensure that your companion is given the very best of care & attention while in our care.

I want you to feel safe, secure & confident that your Dog or Cat or small animal will be well cared for.

The Haven was established in 1961, I took over in 2007.

My first love are my Airedale Terriers & in recent years my Welsh Terriers which I have been showing at Championship level all over the UK and more recently in Europe       including Crufts for over 25 years.

Kennels and Cattery in Ashford

Since I took over the Haven in 2007, I brought with me many years of experience looking after and caring for dogs, it is my intention to provide the very best care for all the animals that come into our care.

In 2017 to continue the high standard of care that I have set, Isobel Kane 'Issy ' has been promoted to Kennel Manager and will work closely with me to ensure that those standards are continued. Issy & myself travel all over the UK and in recent years into Europe to Championship Dog shows  with the Airedale & Welsh Terriers

I believe that the service we offer here is second to none and I invite you to come and see for your self. A personal promise from Brian, it is my aim that your dog, cat or rabbit will receive the same love and attention as our own, and why you can trust us to look after your companion.

Our aim is to ensure that your companions really enjoy their stay with us and are given quality care and attention at all times.

We pride ourselves that we are not like other companies with answer phone messages, we are here 24 hours a day, while we would ask that customers contact us at sensible times we will answer your call in evening times and at weekends.

Our aim is to give a truly personal service to you and your companions, you will always find an interested response whether calling by phone or on a visit to the kennels.

Every person you speak to here is passionate about animals and will do there best to make sure that your companions will be well cared for.
