Your pet’s comfort and well-being are our top priorities.

Our dedicated staff uses their knowledge of animal care to keep your pet healthy and happy during their stay.

We offer separate boarding facilities for cats and dogs so our feline friends can have a little peace and quiet during their stay.

We take great pride in maintaining a clean and comfortable facility for your pet.

Our boarding area is temperature-controlled and spacious, and your pet receives frequent care and attention from our friendly, compassionate staff.

Should any medical problems arise during your pet’s stay, you can have peace of mind that our veterinarians will make sure they are treated appropriately.

Dog & Cat Boarding Requirements

All boarding guests must be up-to-date on vaccinations. If your pet requires any vaccinations before staying with us, we are happy to provide the vaccines for an additional fee.

The following vaccinations are required 48 hours prior to the time of boarding.


  • Rabies
  • Bordetella (required every six months) **
  • Intestinal Parasite Screen (every 6 months)**
  • Canine Influenza
    • (Dogs that have never received the canine influenza vaccine will require a booster 2-4 weeks after the initial vaccine)

Pets may be dropped off anytime during our hours of operation. Charges accrue the first day of boarding. Animals being picked up from boarding before 11am. will not be charged for the current day. Check-out is not offered (we are closed to the public) on Sundays and on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

We highly encourage you to bring your pets own food. The best thing for the health of your pet is to stay on their regular diet. Changing your dog’s diet may result in an upset stomach while staying with us. If you bring food for your pet from home, we ask that you pre-bag the appropriate amount of food for your stay. If you are unable to bring your pet’s food, we do have a premium veterinary diet available for your convenience.

Personal Items

Due to the high volume of pets in our care, it is preferred that a minimum number of personal items are left. Bedding is provided for all animals in our care and it is asked that personal bedding is not left with the animal. Bedding is changed/washed daily, and high volumes of laundry make it difficult to get personal bedding to pets in a timely manner. Some toys are accepted. We are not responsible for any bedding or personal items an owner leaves with the pet.

Why Board Your Pet at a Veterinary Practice?

  • Medications are administered by trained veterinary staff.
  • If there is an emergency or your pet needs immediate medical care, our veterinarians and medical team are onsite for a quick response.
  • If your pet requires updated vaccinations before boarding, we can take care of those before your pet's scheduled boarding date. If possible, please allow two weeks between vaccination and boarding.
  • We offer veterinary exams or other medical services needed during your pet’s stay.

We welcome your questions about our boarding facilities and policies and are eager to discuss how we can make your pet’s stay as positive as possible.
