COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU OFFER AFTER HOURS PICK-UP/DROP-OFF FOR BOARDING?
After Hours pickup is available by appointment only. We have free pickup during regular business hours and from Sunday 6-7 pm. (HOLIDAYS EXCLUDED):
On holidays and at any other time outside of business hours a $40 fee is charged to compensate staff for time away from their family.
HOW MUCH IS BOARDING AND DAYCARE?
This depends on length of stay. Longer stays (3 or more days) do receive a discount off the nightly rate. Boarding is billed on a nightly basis. For example, if a single pet arrives on Monday and leaves Tuesday before 10 am the charge would be $28 for a pet staying in a run. If the pet goes home after 10 am the price would be $43 (due to the extended stay)
