Our VIP Boarding Suite
Ask a staff member about our VIP Boarding Suite. It is a 12′ X 14′ room with no cage bars and a large picture window overlooking our back yard. The windows, doors, floors and walls are specially constructed to provide a safe and secure and comfortable “home-away-from-home” for your pets. There is plenty of room for dog beds, blankets, toys, and other personal items that you want to leave with your pets while they stay with us. The VIP suite availability is limited so please make your pets’ reservation as early as possible.
Policies and Requirements
All pets staying in our facility must be up to date with the following vaccinations and tests provided by a licensed veterinarian. This protects your pet as well as others in our care. For this reason we must have proof that the vaccinations and tests are up-to-date at the time your pet checks in. If provided at another veterinary office, please provide us a copy of the records and a contact number for the office at the time your pet is checked-in. If you are unable to provide the documentation we will perform the needed services at our normal fee (a doctor exam is required for all vaccinations provided).
DOGS – Distemper / Parvo, Bordatella, Rabies, Intestinal Parasite Exam (Fecal Exam)
Diet and Personal Items
Unless otherwise requested we provide a well balanced diet that meets the standards of the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Guests are fed twice a day unless otherwise requested. Water is available at all times. You may provide a special diet and/or treats and we will make every effort to feed your pet in accordance with your recommendations. We require that special request diets be provided in separate, clearly labeled individual packages – 1 for each day your pet will be staying with us in order to help us comply with your requests. Zip lock bags or disposable plastic containers are recommended (please do not bring any containers that need to be returned). Personal items may be left with your pet to help him/her feel at home. It is important to realize that these items can be damaged or lost during your pets’ stay so please do not bring any valuable or sentimental item or anything that cannot be discarded at the end of the boarding period. We will make every effort to return all items that are still in good condition. If possible we will wash all cloth items on the last day of boarding. We ask that you do not leave any collars or leashes with our pet while they are boarding. You may leave a harness or other item that is medically necessary and or doctors will determine that it is safe to leave on your pet during their stay. We will make every effort to avoid loss or damage but cannot accept responsibility for lost or damaged items.
Additional Boarding Services
