Any pet without the proper proof of vaccines will not be accepted for boarding in our Kennels. There are no exceptions to this rule! This is for Your pet’s protection as well as for all the other boarding pets as well as our own. We trust you understand these basic requirements.

Boarding charges begin the day your pet is checked in; and end the day your pets are picked up without regard to the time.

DAILY RATES: 1st dog – $16; each additional dog – $11 (all dogs must have the same owner); Cats: $7; Special long-term rates available.


Mon – Fri: 7:30 am – Noon  and 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Saturday: 7:30 am – Noon
Sunday: 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

 What to bring:

  • Favorite bedding or blanket that smells like home
  • A couple of toys
  • Some pets do best with their own food; otherwise we feed Diamond Lamb Meal and Rice.
  • Immunizations records – don’t forget.
  • Dishes – leave them at home. We use stainless steel, sanitized dishes.
  • Medications – we’re glad to administer medications. Please bring written instructions.

Most hotels and bed & breakfasts in the area do not accept pets. You can enjoy your vacation knowing you pet is close by and you can visit your pet at any time during our regular business hours.
