Boarding

No matter where you’re going, or where you’re coming from, rest assured that our priority is keeping your furry friend happy, healthy and safe. 

Overview

Convenient location, specialized care, and a well-trained, compassionate staff make us the top choice among pet owners. We treat every pet as if they were our very own family pet, and strive to make their stay with us as comfortable and fun-filled as possible. We hope that they will think of our pet boarding facility as a home away from home.

We will go the extra mile to ensure that all your pet’s needs are met during their stay with us. You can specify their individual needs for services such as, medications, a bath, or pedicure.

Whether your pet is boarding for a day or a week, we keep our facility climate controlled to ensure your pet feels relaxed and comfortable.

*Boarding Services available only to active Clark Animal Care Center clients.

Why should I board my pet?

If you are planning to travel overnight for days, weeks, or even a few months, consider boarding your pet during your trip. Your mind will be at peace knowing that your pet is being taken care of in a safe and secure environment.

Pet Drop Off

Pets can be dropped off 1 hour after we open for business. Upon arrival, you will sign a consent form for boarding and a medical consent if needed for your pet during their stay. All of your pets special instructions will be collected by the receptionist during this time.

Pet Prerequisites

We require that all pets be up to date Comprehensive Physical Exam and they must be current patients with Clark Animal Care Center. All pets must be on Flea and Tick Preventatives.

Vaccine Requirements

We require that all boarders be up to date on vaccines, including: Distemper, Rabies, Canine Influenza, and Bordetella (kennel cough) for dogs. For cats we require Distemper, feline and Rabies. Feline leukemia virus vaccine is recommended for indoor/outdoor cats. Pets must have completed all required vaccinations at least 10 days prior to boarding. Puppies and kittens must have completed their vaccination series at least 2 weeks prior to boarding and be at least 18 weeks of age. These requirements are designed to keep your pet as safe as possible from infectious diseases while boarding and to protect our debilitated or injured hospitalized patients from infection. We thank you for your understanding.

Medical Problems

If your pet has a medical problem and you would like a doctor to evaluate during boarding, please inform the receptionist prior to or at the time of reservation so that she may schedule an appointment for examination. If your pet becomes ill during boarding, we will administer treatment to your pet at regular fees. We do not board diabetic pets or pets with extensive medical conditions.

Pet Pick Up

Pets can be picked up to one hour before closing. We are closed on Sundays and all major holidays and pets would need to be picked up on the next business day.

Pet Care

If a special diet is required, please give instructions to receptionist at pet drop off. If medications are needed for your pet, please bring them in their original bottles with dosing instructions. Our boarders are housed in individual cages or runs. Appropriate bedding will be provided for your pet however, you can bring your pets own bedding. For the safety of your pet we do not allow rawhide bones or rope/string toys. Many pets will bury small toys in their bedding and these may inadvertently be thrown out. For this reason we cannot guarantee return of personal items. Dogs are walked outside a minimum of 3 times per day. Cats receive clean litter as needed.
