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.

Hill’s Science Diet premium pet food is provided to all guests, as well as the occasional treat. If your pet requires daily medication, our trained staff will administer it as directed.
