If you’re planning a vacation and can’t bring your family pet along, we offer safe, reliable pet boarding services. With highly trained and knowledgeable staff, your pet will receive the quality care that they deserve. Whether you need overnight boarding or pet daycare, our facility can accommodate your pet no matter their size, age, or breed. Our staff adheres to strict handling, cleanliness, and safety guidelines so your pet is in trusted hands. As an added benefit, we do have veterinary staff on hand to take care of any health related issues that may occur while you are away. While these occurrences are rare, you can rest assured knowing that your pet is safe and sound.

Overnight boarding your pet with us includes: 

  • Personal dog kennels – Some are available with outdoor runs
  • Scheduled outside time multiple times a day.  
  • Hospital boarding is available for specialized care for diabetic and special needs pets

Overnight boarding specifications

  • Vaccinations – All pets are required to have up-to-date Rabies and Distemper/Parvo vaccinations to board in the kennel. If your pet needs booster shots, we strongly encourage them to be administered prior to boarding. Our veterinarians can also perform annual exams with the vaccinations during their stay if you let us know when scheduling your pet’s boarding.

Do I need to make a reservation?

Yes. Walk –ins are welcome, however, around the holidays we fill up fast.  We suggest that you make your reservation in advance as we do fill to capacity in the summer months and around the holidays. There will be no pick-up on national holidays (New Year’s Eve, New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). We may close early prior to a holiday, so please be aware our normal business hours may be subject to change.

If you have any further questions about boarding your pet with us, or to schedule a stay, please contact our office.

We look forward to taking care of your pet.
