What happens if my pet becomes ill while at the kennel?

The first time you board your pet with us, you will sign an agreement stating that our staff has permission to seek medical treatment for your pet in an emergency. We will always try to use your veterinarian first, but if this is not possible, we will use an emergency clinic locally. We will also confirm your emergency contact numbers each visit to ensure we have a working telephone number to contact you or your designated contact in an emergency.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, checks, and credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express). Payment is required before pets are released.

May I take a tour of the kennel before making a reservation?

Of course! Touring our facility allows you to see where your pet will stay, meet the staff, and ask any questions you may have regarding policies and procedures.

Tours are available Tuesday - Thursday, 9–11 AM & 3–5 PM, and Saturday from 9–11 AM.
