Holiday Care Program
Hope Springs Eternal understands that dogs are happier in a home environment where they can be part of the family, be warm, safe, comfortable – and have companionship
We also understand that families like to know that their precious pooch is happy, safe, and having a good time – when they are going away and can’t take their pup with them.
Hope Springs is offering a holiday stay program – to help support our rescue and re-homing efforts.
Your pooch can come and stay for the holidays and you can feel comfortable, knowing that they:
- Will receive regular walks
- Will be fed their usual diet
- Any medications can be dispensed as required
- They will receive medical attention, should it be required
- They can have a meaty bone for enjoyment and teeth cleaning, once a week
- They can be picked up and dropped off
Please complete an Application Form if you would like to apply for a Holiday Care Place
You can also feel good, knowing that the money you pay toward their holiday care, will directly benefit another dog and family requiring care and our services – as all money made out of this venture will go directly into our rescue and rehoming efforts.
Holiday Care Costs:
|Week (7 days)
|A surcharge of $5 per day will apply to all SA Public Holidays.

Hope Springs Eternal will not be providing farm-stay holidays after the end of January 2024 as we are moving to a suburban block. We will continue with holiday care bookings until the 10th April 2024 which is the end of Easter. If you already have a booking with us beyond that date, it will still go ahead as scheduled.
We won’t be providing holiday care at all after Easter – but it will continue to be provided by a trusted and vetted group of holiday carers via Purrpetuall Pet Services. A percentage of the Purrpetuall Pet Services holiday fee will continue to support the care and rehoming of small dogs.
Hope Springs Farm Stay Holidays
Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah,
Here I am at – Camp Mt Barker
Camp is very – entertaining
Chasing ducks into the water
When it’s not raining.
We went hiking, up the Summit
Saw some kangaroos and some rabbits
Hender loop walk – gives us calfies
Love the way they run away – when we do barkies
Harper Road walk – we see Brownie
He runs the fence like – he is crazy
Winery Road walk – is very pretty
Maisie flurbles – Dog-father says she’s being very lazy
Then there’s Oscar – he’s a big bird –
He could stomp you – or so I’ve heard
He’s got long legs and a long neck
Makes him kinda’ look – somewhat ab-surd
Folklore says – he likes to wander
Down the driveway – and somewhere yonder
Heard it tell that – he likes to donk you
Eats nuts and bolts and paint – resulting in – some coloured poo!
Leroy and Lottie are very cranky
They’ve got long necks – makes them look lanky
They hiss and flap and honk their heads away
Seems to me – they’ve got an awful lot they want to say!
Rosie and Reuben – gosling hatching
Dougal and Ollie – need friends matching
Then there’s chickens – round the corner
About Mo the Rooster – we havta’ warn ya!
An alpaca – name of Kuna
Wish I’d known him, kind of sooner
He’s a fun guy and he likes to tease
Aussie watches on and sniggers – at what he sees!
The Hope Springs Gang – they are okay
Though it seems they sometimes – have a lot to say
That Dog-Father – he’s a good cook
And the laps and pats are plenty when you need a sook.
Muddah, Faddah – I say in earnest
Not a bad place to take – a rest!
No need to worry – I am o-kay
Havin’ quite a blast – on my farm-stay holi-day!
We would also like to hear from people who may be interested in providing holiday care for a puppy
– perhaps you like the idea of having a dog for a little while but can’t commit to full time and ongoing care of a pooch? –
this may be the answer for you – a dog for holidays!
