Our Services


Our pet guests and their humans agree: there’s no better place for a vacation! We offer comfy accommodations, a knowledgeable staff, and lots of fun activities to keep every pet happy.

Canine guests can enjoy active one-on-one play in shaded play yards or a romp across our large field. And social dogs can enjoy play with friends in our doggy daycamp program. An indoor playroom keeps the fun going even on rainy or snowy days.

Our comfortable doggy suites are spacious and airy, and Kitty City features a large window that’s perfect for bird watching.
