Cheryl N. says, " We adopted Gibson back in 2012 he is very special with his funny bark . He was our gift to our Shepherd so he would have a little brother. They became very close and both are loved so much. Sadly we lost our Gunner. Pet Orphans was very cool and watched our Gunner while we walked through to find our new boy., they made us feel very comfortable. Maybe some day we will come back to find our new fur baby so Gibson can be a big brother. Thank you for our Woo Woo boy." Read more

I (and my whole family) have been blessed with fantastic pets my whole life. I’ve helped deliver pups and kitties, and taken care of them very well. I’ve watched pets for family and friends, and decided to branch out, and watch other people’s pets. I’m trustworthy, and animals tend to love me! Give me a chance to earn your trust, and let me work for you!

Your Pet Boarding questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does pet boarding cost near me?

Pet boarding costs $25 to $40 per night on average for a cat or $25 to $85 per night for a dog. Costs are higher for pets with special needs or when including other services during the pet's stay, such as grooming or training.

What is pet boarding?

Pet boarding provides a safe place for your pet to reside if you are going to be away from home for an extended period. A pet boarding facility typically has one or more rooms with individual cages or kennels, and additional rooms or outside areas for exercise and play. The facility staff ensures your pet has food, water, a place to go to the bathroom, and a safe, clean place to stretch out and sleep.  

  • Pet boarding may also be combined with other services like grooming or training.
  • Some pet boarding facilities take both cats and dogs, while others specialize in one or the other.

What is the difference between pet boarding and pet sitting?

Pet boarding is like a hotel where your pet stays overnight in a kennel and is around other animals. In comparison, pet sitting allows your pet to stay at home or in the sitter's home and receive more personalized care and attention than a pet boarding service typically provides.

Both pet boarding and pet sitting are services designed to keep your pet safe and cared for while you are away.

What vaccinations does my pet need for boarding?

Vaccination requirements vary by state and boarding facility. In most cases, dogs need proof of Distemper, Rabies, Lepto, Parvo, Bordetella, and Dog Flu vaccines. Cats typically need rabies and feline distemper vaccinations, and testing for feline leukemia and AIDS (FeLV/FIV) before boarding is highly recommended.

If your pet is due for a vaccine or booster, get it done at least 3 weeks before boarding.

Is pet boarding safe, and how do I choose the best pet boarders near me?

Researching and asking the right questions can help confirm the pet boarding service you choose will keep your pet safe, secure, and well cared for. Look for a boarding facility that:

  • Has clean, secure, and comfortable kennels with enough space for your pet to move and stretch
  • Has a highly trained and adequate numbered staff
  • Is a member of the Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC)
  • Requires current vaccination records
  • Screens pets for fleas and ticks before boarding
  • Demonstrates emergency preparedness
  • Has positive reviews on HomeGuide and Google
  • Provides supervised play & feeding time
  • Gives a balance of down time and activity

What questions should I ask pet boarding companies?

Consider asking these questions when researching pet boarding facilities:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Can you provide a list of references?
  • Are you a member of the PACCC?
  • What training and certifications do the staff have?
  • What vaccinations do you require before boarding?
  • Do you screen every animal for fleas and ticks before boarding?
  • What is your protocol if my pet is injured or gets sick while boarding?
  • What is the daily feed and play schedule?
  • How often do you clean the kennels?
  • What do you use to clean the kennels?
  • Is someone at the facility overnight?

Zulma stands out to me as a dog sitter not just because she's excellent and loves dogs so much - but also because her whole family does! Our 8 month old maltipoo puppy was in great hands for over a week, and Zulma did a great job of sending me picture updates so I wouldn't miss our puppy too much. It was wonderful to see her daughter loving on our puppy every day! Another thing that was great was Zulma's very quick responses and strong communication. I always felt like I could reach her even with changing details from my end on things like drop off/pick up hours. She was very flexible and made sure to work with my schedule always. Definitely will be staying in touch and working with Zulma again! And recommending her to my doggo parent friends too!
