  5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
    Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 6 months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery.

  7. What are your kennels like?
    Our dog kennels are all indoor. The dogs are walked 3 times daily while they are boarding (except Sundays which is 2 times). The cat boarders are housed in a separate area away from the dogs. Blankets and food are provided for our boarders, but you are always welcome to bring your own.
