We offer boarding for both cats and dogs with three primary options based on the needs and health of your pet. Regardless of the boarding option, fees are structured to reserve a run or condo for each day, regardless of drop-off or pickup time. As an added convenience, we can provide you with a key fob allowing you access to our boarding facility after hours, so you can pick up your pet at any time. You are welcome to tour our facilities and ask our staff any questions you may have.

Boarding Requirements & Policy:

To ensure the safety of all pets, all animals must be up to date on the vaccinations listed below with proof of immunization by a veterinarian. In addition, all pets must have had a physical exam by one of our veterinarians within the past year. A stool sample must have been checked within the past 6 months to screen for any gastrointestinal parasites. To help prevent the spread of GI parasites, a negative stool sample is required.

Upon arrival, we will check your pet for any fleas or ticks. Any animals with fleas or ticks will be treated at the owner's or caretaker's expense. A recent stool sample is required to screen for any gastrointestinal parasites. Any animal positive for parasites will be treated at the owner's or caretaker's expense. We will attempt to contact you if any additional health problems requiring treatment are present or should arise. If we cannot contact you at the number you provide, we will treat your pet at your expense.
