Boarding for Dogs & Cats
With our overnight boarding for cats and dogs, our Greensboro veterinary team strives to provide a home away from home for your pets while you're away.Get Started
We treat your pets like family
We know that it can be stressful to leave your pet behind when you travel, and we want to help put your mind at ease.
We provide complete boarding services for cats and dogs in comfortable, clean, quiet kennels. Each pet gets one-on-one attention from our staff, and dogs get outdoor and social playtime.
We're serious animal lovers, and we love giving animals all the attention and care they deserve while they're staying with us.
Boarding: A Typical Day
Every morning the dogs go outside for fresh air before breakfast. While they are outside, their kennels are cleaned, disinfected, and stocked with fresh linens.
After breakfast, it's playtime! Each dog goes out for social play with supervision from our staff. If it's wet and rainy out, your dog has full access to an indoor play area to exercise.
Your dog will also have supervision throughout their entire stay with us – both during play and while they rest.
In the evening, dinner is served, and then we have one last walk before bedtime.
Our feline guests are cared for with love by our trained staff. Your cat will be fed according to your specifications, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home.
We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (who want it!) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected periodically throughout the day.
Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.

Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to board family members (canine/canine or feline/feline) together.
- How much does pet boarding cost?
Boarding fees vary based on the duration of the stay, the size of the pet, and special medical requirements. That said, our pricing is affordable and competitive, and we welcome you to contact us for a quote.
- What time should I drop off and pick up my pet?
All pets must be dropped off or picked up during regular office hours. Reservations are recommended, especially for holidays and summer weekends. During these times, it is recommended that you call 2-3 weeks in advance to lessen the chance that your pet may not have a place to stay.
- What should I pack for my pet?
Food: While we provide food (Purina EN) for pets staying with us, feel free to bring enough of your pet's regular food to last the duration of the stay.
Medication: If your pet takes any medication, bring it along for our staff to administer.
Toys: If your pet has a special toy or two, bring them along.
- What if my pet needs to take medication?
We will be glad to administer your pet's medications while they are with us.
- Can I get updates about my pet during their stay?
Yes, feel free to call us during your pet's stay for updates. If there is a problem, we will contact you via the emergency contact information you provide.
- How should I prepare for my pet's stay?
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, or fill out the form on this page with details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be in touch to ensure your pet is eligible for boarding, and to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Book a trial stay
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
Step 3: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
- What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?
For pets that are not on a special diet, we provide Purina EN pet food.
