Boarding Policies

We will try our best to accommodate your schedule. Pet drop off hours for boarding are any time between 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Charges begin the day of check in, regardless of the time your pet arrives.

Pets may be picked up any time during office hours. There is no charge for boarding the day of pick up if the pet is picked up before noon, Monday through Saturday.

We try our best to return your pet's belongings to you in the same condition as upon arrival, however, some pets become excited here and chew their belongings.

DURING THE WEEK OF A HOLIDAY, WE REQUIRE A 2-DAY MINIMUM STAY FOR BOARDING.

Sunday Pick Up

Sunday pick-up is available from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and MUST be arranged for at the time of drop off. All boarding charges MUST also be paid for in advance to take advantage of the Sunday pick up.

In the event your pet becomes ill while boarding with us, Dr. Ackler will treat your pet at an additional cost.

Playtime

Now available upon request. Schedule your pet's play time in our safe and secure fenced play area. Your pet will get extra personal attention, brushing, playing, and running.

Overnight Boarding

We provide a safe, clean, and well supervised boarding facility. You are welcome to visit the facility prior to leaving your pet with us.

Dogs and Cats may stay in a kennel alone or with one of your other pets. Soft quilts and blankets are ready for them to lie on. All runs have heated floors in the winter and are air-conditioned in the summer.

Dogs may stay in a totally indoor space or in an indoor with outdoor kennel where they can watch, whatever it is that dogs watch, so intently when outside. They also have the option of additional play time while here. This can include playing ball or Frisbee in our outdoor play yard, or for our more mellow guests, 15 minutes of personal attention, such as petting or brushing.

Cats are in a light, airy facility and have a bird feeder right outside of their window to provide some outside interest.

To register your pet, please use our convenient online Registration Form.
