Trust our professional and friendly team to take great care of your pet during your next trip. 

At Pet Care Center, we’re proud to offer outstanding pet boarding services for your beloved pet in addition to comprehensive veterinary care.

Pet Boarding at Pet Care Center

Your pet’s comfort and well-being are our top priorities. Our dedicated staff uses their knowledge of animal care to keep your pet healthy and happy during their stay.

We offer separate boarding facilities for cats and dogs so our feline friends can have a little peace and quiet during their stay.

About Our Pet Boarding Facilities

We take great pride in maintaining a clean and comfortable facility for your pet. Our boarding area is temperature-controlled and spacious, and your pet receives frequent care and attention from our friendly, compassionate staff. We offer canine and feline condos, as well as traditional kennels.

Our 33 indoor dog condos have wrought iron entry doors and are furnished with day beds and elevated feeding bowls. Our 24-hour attendants will provide constant care for your pet and all dogs leave their condos at least six times during the day and night to walk and play in our large, one-acre yard.

Our feline condos consist of floor-to-ceiling rooms with glass doors and windows and adjustable climbing towers. All cat condos have climbing perches for your pampered pet to relax or gazing into the condo lobby. From the rear of the condos, friendly felines can play with doctors and staff while they walk through the hallways.

Our kennels consist of stainless steel and are stationed throughout the hospital. All pets staying in these size appropriate kennels receive 24-hour attention and at least six or more opportunities to walk and play in our secure and spacious one-acre yard.

Pets will be boarded primarily in condos, but any pet found damaging a condo will be moved into a kennel for their safety. Kennel prices will apply to remaining days. 

What to Expect

Should any medical problems arise during your pet’s stay, you can have peace of mind that our veterinarians will make sure they are treated appropriately. Any pet exhibiting distress will be moved to medical observation for care. Medical Observation prices will apply to remaining days.

Collars and leashes will be removed upon arrival and left with the owner. Pet Care Center provides bedding, leashes and bowls during your pet’s stay. Pet Care Center will not be responsible for damage or loss of left articles.
