Drop-off & Pick up     

Our Daily rate begins the day you Check-in

Check out between 10:00am and 6:00pm is automatic extra days charge applied to your bill.  Check out between 8:00 am to 10:00 am and you do not pay for that day!

No pick ups or drop off from 12 pm-2 pm
Why? We have nap time for our animals from 12-2 pm every day. This gives a chance for our staff to do required errands, take a break, do extra cleaning, or eat lunch, plus gives your pet a chance to have some downtime and rest.
