Custom Cages

We recognise that not every animal fits snuggly into one of our standard cages.

For these special projects we manufacture custom built cages to exactly match the shape and size required. We have made cages for multiple animals, some with divider walls in the middle. There have been cages for birds, mice, ferrets, reptiles, large animals and small animals etc etc. Some crates are so large they need to be moved with a fork-truck.
