Top-of-the-Line Cat and Dog Boarding

Pet Laser Therapy: Vet tech with dog

You will not need to look far to find a friendly, trustworthy boarding facility for your companion. Whether you plan to be out of town for two days or two weeks, our caring staff members will make sure that your pet is always comfortable and well cared for.

The goal of our pet boarding services is to provide our guests with a loving, attentive environment that meets not only their most basic health needs, but their emotional needs as well. Your pet can expect cuddles from our staff and careful monitoring by experienced technicians if they have ongoing medical issues.

Accommodations We Offer

Dogs and cats can enjoy their own separate spaces in separate wards for less stress and greater privacy. In addition, each guest will be provided with clean, stainless steel food and water bowls and fresh, soft bedding. Dogs will be taken outside and walked daily, and all animals will be given individual attention whenever possible.

What to Bring From Home

We ask that all owners bring their pet’s food from home, as a change in diet could result in stomach upset. This is especially important for animals that are on a specific diet for health reasons. Make sure food is measured out properly into sealed containers and includes instructions for our staff members.

Also be sure to bring any and all prescription medications that your pet is currently taking. This includes eye ointment, pills, liquids and insulin. Have medications stored in their original containers with clear instructions provided.

If you have any requests for our team, be sure to let us know in advance so we that can accommodate you. This includes any grooming or medical services.
