Dogs are kept in our large 4′ x 15′ indoor/outdoor runs. They will be let out to run twice a day in one of our grassy yards. We provide resting benches, and you are welcome to bring your own bedding, toys or other items as well. Our skilled and loving staff will provide kindness and play for those guests who enjoy such attention.

What vaccinations or other healthcare requirements are needed for my pet to board at your facility? All pets must be current on their routine preventative health vaccinations. In addition, all dogs must have received a Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccination  no less than 10 days and not more than 180 days prior to boarding with us. External parasite treatment (for fleas and ticks) is required within 14 days of arrival. For information on our vaccination clinic please go here.

How much does it cost per day to board my pet? For cats, we charge $25/day. For dogs, we charge $30/day, or $50/day per day for two dogs or more dogs who may share the same kennel.  For birds, we charge $20/day, and a cage must be provided.

Payments must be made in full at the time of arrival. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express). Payment plans are not available. Personal checks are accepted with Kauai address only.

What if my pet is on a special diet? We feed Hill’s Science Diet brand dry pet food and Kirkland canned. We will feed your pet’s special diet if you provide an adequate amount in a sealed container with feeding instructions.

What if my pet is on medication? If your pet is on special medication, we recommend you board him or her with your private veterinarian. Your veterinarian is familiar with your pet and can closely monitor their condition and daily medication schedule.

What if my cat will only use a special type of litter? We provide standard clay litter and clean the litter boxes twice daily. We can use your special litter if you provide an ample supply with a sealed container.

Do you have transport services available? No, we do not offer transport services at this time.

What if my pet gets sick while I am away? We will require all pet owners to register with their private veterinary clinic prior to leaving their pet with us. If your pet gets sick, we will transport him or her to their veterinarian for treatment at the owner’s cost.
