Bunkhouse Boarding

Camp for your pets! Your pets will spend the night with one of our staff and fellow campers in a luxurious bedroom suite. Pets must be socially friendly and temperament tested for the safety of all of our guests. Daycare is included each day. Please remember, since the dogs are in daycare for a whole day, we recommend you raise the amount you normally feed your dog because they will burn lots of calories.

  • 1 Dog | $57.00/night

Cat Boarding

Your feline friends will appreciate our lofty and spacious, kitty condos. The condos are located in a penthouse area with a great view of our lobby. The adventurous types will enjoy exercising in the play area, and no cool cat can resist our charming and loving staff.

Exotic Pet Boarding

Birds, rabbits, rodents, ferrets, reptiles, fish…you name it, we will probably take it! You provide the pet, living quarters, food, and bedding- we will supply the experience, care, and love. Our exotic boarding room is light, air, and humidity controlled. Sorry, rattlesnakes, antelope, and buffalo cannot be accommodated.

  • 1 Exotic $17.00/night

What should I bring while my pet is boarding?

You are welcome to bring anything you would like for your pet’s visit. However, please be aware that any belongings you choose to leave when your precious ones are boarding could be lost or misplaced during their stay. Anytime an animal spills water or has an accident on their bedding, toys, etc; we are required to wash and sterilize those items. When this happens, these items could be lost in rotation. We provide a soft, fake sheepskin bedding for any animals that stay with us. We also provide metal bowls for food and water. We are happy to provide your animal with our food which is a gentle diet called EN. We do recommend that you bring your own food, to keep your pet on their normal diet. Please make sure any medication your pet requires while staying here must be separated from food and in its own container. This ensures our staff can monitor and properly medicate your pet.
