We accept canines for care aged 6 months and above. We do not accept canines under 6 months of age as we do not feel a boarding setting is conducive to their well being at that age. We recommend pet owners board their young canines with their Veterinarian or Veterinarian recommended facility experienced with young canines.
We understand boarding can be stressful for both you and your pet. We encourage you to talk with your Veterinarian about boarding, check a facilities licensing record, and randomly call Veterinary Hospitals in the facilities area and ask about the boarding facility. If your pet has health issues, we recommend you consult with your Veterinarian about any risk boarding might exacerbate.
We also recommend when traveling to email your canine's health records, as well as their vaccination records, to yourself. Should a health emergency occur while away from home, having your pet's medical records at your fingertips can be helpful.

As soon as you plan your pets stay, check their vaccinations. We encourage you to consult with your Veterinarian prior to leaving your pet in the care of a boarding facility, pet sitter, or other care setting.
We require all Core vaccinations to be current in addition to a bordetella vaccination administered within 6 months of your pets check out date. Intranasal and oral bordetella vaccinations can not be administered sooner than 7 days prior to check in. SubQ (injection) can not be administered sooner than 28 days prior to check in.
If your pet has aged out Core vaccinations or you have a titers, you can provide the document in lieu of the vaccination record. The Bordetella vaccination is still required.
North Carolina law does not permit any exemptions or exclusions from the rabies vaccination. Please call the North Carolina Department of Health for any questions regarding the rabies vaccination.
