  • A safe, quiet and private room in our home

  • Visual wellness exam several times a day

  • Daily enclosure cleaning including water and food dishes

  • Two-three times daily food preparation, feeding, watering, chews and treats

Boarding services are invoiced at the end of the service period. A 50% deposit of the total invoiced balance is due to hold a boarding reservation in the days and months between Memorial and Labor Day months and on all federal holiday weekends.


Standard small animal boarding rate:

  • $15/night (24 hour period)

  • Includes one standard sized enclosure/cage


  • Federal holidays - +$5

  • Additional care services can be customized as agreed upon
