For your pet's safety, all guests must be up to date on their vaccinations. We need a paper copy from your veterinarian to keep with their file. You may bring it when you arrive for boarding or have it faxed to us ahead of time (fax: 828-891-3805). We must have this to check-in your pet so be sure these vaccinations are included and current.


•  Dogs need to be up-to-date on their Distemper/Parvo, Bordetella, and Rabies

•  Cats need to be up-to-date on their Feline Distemper and Rabies



We welcome your visit! We are proud of our clean kennel and therefore do NOT require you to schedule a tour. The only exception is Sunday from 4-5 pm because of the volume of activity at this time.


Medications and Special Diets

We encourage you to bring your pet's own food. Please place it in a plastic container with their name and instructions on it. We supply high-quality food for our guests who choose not to bring their own. We will administer your pet's medication free of charge in most cases. If the procedure is more complicated or difficult, there may be a charge for administration.



We supply blankets free of charge for all dogs. We also offer Kuranda cots for a small daily fee for those who prefer them. You are welcome to bring your own bedding if you prefer, however please do not bring any stuffed beds. Cats may also use their own bedding but a bed will unlikely fit through the condo door opening.



Call 828-891-3705 to schedule your reservation. You may cancel your reservation with 48 hour notice during regular days. For holidays, we require a 3 day minimum stay and a credit card number to hold your spot . If you need to cancel, you must do so within 3 days of your drop off day to avoid the 3 day minimum charge.
