Short-Term or Long-Term Dog Boarding
As one of our services, you can now enjoy peace and security while away for an hour, a day, or a month, knowing your dog is in the hands of an organization that has proven trustworthiness.
Dog boarding is located in a dedicated wing of the shelter, with its own kitchen and grooming area. The boarding wing is equipped with a modern air filtration system and Mason Sani-Kennels, each standard kennel measuring nearly 60 square feet and each extra large kennel measuring nearly 120 square feet. We also have “Quiet Zone” kennels, designed especially for the comfort of senior and small dogs.
Large outdoor play areas and our nature path for on-leash walks are available to all our canine guests. Your pets will be tended to by our compassionate, highly trained boarding staff. All pets staying with us will have access to 24/7 veterinary care.
All funds generated from boarding, day care, and grooming will be directed toward enhancing and developing programs and services for our homeless animals in need of care and waiting for their forever homes at the CGHS/SPCA shelter.
