“We believe that all pets deserve to have a good life.”

Boarding Lodge

Whether it's for one day or several days, your pet is our special guest while staying in our Boarding Lodge.

We offer separate accommodations for dogs and cats, and our guests receive on-on-one care throughout their stay.

Welcome Mural

Our Boarding Lodge is all-inclusive! We provide comfortable beds and blankets, the feeding of meals, treats, and supplements, indoor play time, and outdoor walks for dogs. All of these services are included in your pet’s daily boarding fee.

Our caring staff members take the time to know your pet and its needs, and our medical team is available during regular business hours.

We offer three types of boarding depending on the needs of your pet — Standard for healthy, fully mobile pets, and Medical and Extensive Care for pets with additional needs.

Please note that Extensive Care boarding is only available to pets that are current patients at our facility. A signed release may be required if a pet has recently received care at another facility, such as at a pet specialty or emergency facility.

All Boarding in our Lodge is limited to pets that do not require after hours observation or monitoring.

The standard food that we provide is Science Diet Sensitive Stomach dry kibble. If you prefer that we feed your pet's own dry food and treats, we will be happy to provide this service, providing, you bring enough food for the duration of your pet’s stay packaged in a hard plastic container with a sealable lid, and labeled with your pet's first and last name.

Canned foods must also be labeled with your pet's first and last name, and not be opened. Please provide enough cans for the number of meals to be served.

We do not accept raw diets for boarding pets due to the risk of salmonella exposure and bacterial cross contamination to our staff and other pets in our care.

Prescription medications, supplements and treats to be administered during your pet’s stay must be in their original bottle, container, or package with the original prescription and/or product label. If not provided, we will not administer the medication or product.
