Comfortable Pet Boarding

Our boarding facilities are built on 6 acres of scenic, wooded landscape where we provide kennel runs for dogs and a private cattery for cats. Have peace of mind knowing our veterinary staff is promptly notified if your pet is having any health issues while boarding with us. We give two complimentary outdoor walks per day for our dog boarders – additional walks can be added for a nominal fee each day. Our boarding cats receive complimentary exercise and individual playtime twice daily in our cattery room. To protect our dog and cat boarders, we do not socialize pets from separate homes together. We do our best to provide all the comforts of home, including Purina and Hills food, as well as blankets for your pets. We also encourage our clients to bring a favorite blanket or bed as well as any favorite toys, bones, and treats to make them feel at home.


We provide a complimentary flea bath at the end of your dog's stay, if requested. Each pet is also sent home with a personalized vacation report to give details of their stay and peace of mind that your pet's care was exceptional.

Individual Attention

We take special care when assigning a boarding space to fit your pet's personal needs. We consider your pet's temperament, activity level, age, and health to maximize their comfort and feelings of security while boarding with us. We also continue to make adjustments when necessary to ensure your pet's happiness while with us. We really want you and your pet to look forward to boarding with us, your home away from home!

Private Cattery

Because we know that cats and dogs don’t always get along, we have a private cattery for boarding cats. Each cat cage has a cardboard "cat" box with blankets inside for your cats to curl up in and feel secure and private. Your cat's cage is cleaned twice daily while your cat is being exercised and given one-on-one attention with kennel caregivers.
