Let us love on your pets while you’re away!
We are proud to offer pet boarding and daycare, under the supervision of our veterinary team. By choosing us, you can rest assured that if your pet has a health problem while you are away, they will be in trained hands to contact you and recommend appropriate diagnostics and treatment. For our boarding and daycare patients, we require the following:
- Boarding Dogs: must be current on Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella vaccines
- Boarding Cats: must be current on Rabies and FVRCP vaccines
- Daycare: puppies must minimally have their first Distemper and Bordetella vaccines
Our Daycare is a great way for your pet to get socialization time and some basic training, so as to avoid the problems that go along with prolonged time at home such as destructive behavior and house soiling.
When scheduling boarding, please plan to bring an ample quantity of the food that your pet is normally fed at home, as well as any medications or favorite toys and bedding. This makes our home seem more like yours for them and helps reduce stress. Finally, please arrange to have contact numbers available for our staff to reach you during your pet’s boarding, in the event of any medical emergency.
We do require reservations to be made prior to any drop off of any animal boarding with us. Please call at any time during office hours to check our availability.
In 2013, we added a New separate building to house our Boarding clients. It has large individual runs and is heated and/or cooled year-round. Each of our boarders are allowed time in one of our 2 yards to exercise or play during their stay.
Our Boarding Policies:
We strive to provide the best care and compassion for your pets. If at any time we have the need for special or emergency treatments while your pet is boarding with us, we will first attempt to contact you or your emergency contact to inform of the situation. However, if unable to reach anyone, we will provide treatment as needed.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding of our policies to provide a fair and timely service to all.
In order to give each and every one of our boarders the time and care they need, our boarder Check-In (Drop-off) times are anytime after 9:00am or before 4:30pm Monday-Friday and between 9:00am and 10:30am on Saturdays.
Boarders must be Checked-Out (picked up) by 4:30pm Monday-Friday or 11:00am on Saturdays.

Bring all your pet’s medications in original bottles with a list of how much and when you give each one to help ensure they are given properly.

All pets should be on a prescribed flea prevention or will be given a Capstar before entering the kennel whether fleas are seen or not. Capstar is an oral flea pill that kills all fleas on the animal within 30-45 minutes.
All dogs who are not on a monthly Heartworm prevention, a fecal is recommended but your pet must be de-wormed prior to boarding at our facility. Fecal and de-worming can be done the day of check-in.
We feed a sensitive skin and stomach diet and Royal Canin Small Bites in the kennel. If your pet is on a special diet or is a finicky eater, please only bring enough food for the length of their stay. Please do not bring your pet’s food/water bowls and NO 50 lb. bags of food unless needed for length of stay! Please make sure to measure out enough food and put in a plastic container or Ziplock baggie(s).
Please bring toys, blankets and/or personal items for your pet to make his/her stay more comfortable.
