Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding

VCA Bakersfield Animal Hospital is staffed with a loving and passionate group of veterinary care specialists dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment for your cat or dog when you are away. Our hospital provides both overnight and day boarding facilities for those times when your pets need a home away from home.

Our boarding facilities are equipped with all the essentials for your animal companion, including climate controlled rooms, large play areas, and a separate area exclusively for cats. We also offer standard and luxury sized indoor facilities so your pet is assured to experience the level of comfort that perfectly suits his or her needs. As a part of our commitment to the care of your pet, our veterinarians and staff are available 24 hours a day giving you the peace of mind you need when you're away.

For a detailed description of VCA Bakersfield Animal Hospital's boarding policy, please download our Boarding Policy and Owner Release form. When dropping off or picking up your pet, please allow 30 minutes for check in and check out.

Pick-up and drop-off hours are 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM seven days a week.

All luxury boarders staying 2 or more nights receive a complimentary bath.
