Boarding



We offer boarding 365 days a year for both dogs and cats. If you are leaving for just a day or for several weeks and want someone to take great care of your family pet please give us a call. We offer drop-off and pick-up times 7 days a week. Our Kennel staff’s number one priority is the comfort of your pet.

Boarding pick-up and drop-off times:

Monday through Friday - 9:00am to 4:45pm

Saturday - 8:30-am to 11:45am

Sunday - 9am to 10am

Holidays - 9am to 10am

We have indoor-outdoor kennels and various sized cages available for dogs of all sizes. We recommend making a reservation as far in advance as your travel plans allow. Holidays and summer months can be very busy. However, never feel that you cannot check for availability even at the last minute. Often times we can find room for your furry friend with little notice. Feel free to bring bedding from home, treats (not raw hide type), toys, etc. Please do not bring dishes as we use stainless steel to prevent the spread of disease. Pets have a continuous supply of fresh water and we serve Hill's Science Diet food, both dry and canned depending upon your pet's preference. We do however suggest you bring your pet’s regular food when possible as this is always better for their digestive system. Pets do not have physical contact with other dogs for safety reasons. We are not able to kennel dogs from the same household in one kennel, also for their safety. The stress of being in an unfamiliar location can cause even best buddies to have issues with one another.  All of our kennels and runs, feeding/water bowls and bedding are cleaned and sanitized daily.  If a pet is found to have flea while staying with us, we will administer a cap star pill as well as flea and tick prevention at the owners expense.  


Boarding Guidelines for Dogs: So we can safely board your dog we require current Distemper/Parvo Combination and Rabies vaccines. We also require the Bordatella (Kennel cough) vaccine and it must have been administered within the past year, and a current flu vaccination which is a two part vaccination.  If your pet has been vaccinated at another clinic or hospital, please bring current records with you at the time of drop-off. A flea preventative is also recommended prior to boarding.  


Your cat will be boarded in a large kennel cage with plenty of room for bedding, food, water, and a litter box. Please feel free to bring bedding, toys and treats from home. Pets have a continuous supply of fresh water and we serve Hill's Science Diet food, both dry and canned depending upon your pet's preference. We do however suggest you bring your pet’s regular food as this is always better for their digestive system. For safety reasons we do not board cats together, even those from the same family.

Boarding Guidelines for Cats: In order for us to safely board your cat, we require current Distemper Upper Respiratory Combination and Rabies vaccinations. If your pet has been vaccinated at another clinic or hospital, please bring current records with you at the time of drop-off. A flea preventative is also recommended prior to boarding.
