Quality, Secure Pet Boarding & Lodging


Dog Boarding

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® provides alternative pet boarding, develops positive animal behavior and encourages animal wellness. We offer private, spacious, climate-controlled kennel facilities ranging from economy to deluxe-sized lodges complete with stainless steel bowls and comfy orthopedic beds. Activities are overseen by fully trained Camp Counselors who share your love and devotion to animals.

All dogs boarding overnight are automatically enrolled in our exclusive dog daycare at no extra cost to ensure that your pet will have a restful night after a day of socializing and play.

Upgrade packages are available by request and include manner sessions, extra treats, and/or a going home bubble bath. Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® highly recommends placing reservations for boarding at least 2 weeks in advance during peak seasons and holidays. Reservations are made on a first come first serve basis.

Cat Boarding

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® provides a comfortable and stress-free environment for our feline guests, separate from the dogs.  Cats are rotated out of their lodges to enjoy individual play & special one on one attention from our Camp Counselors in our spacious cattery.  Our cattery includes cozy, climate-controlled lodges with personal litter boxes and a relaxing play area.

Don’t forget to book a spa day in our grooming salon for your feline while they’re on vacation.

Room Service

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® allows your pet to enjoy his/her meal in the privacy of their accommodations, where they may eat and digest their food in peace. Many dogs are food aggressive or will not eat as much of their food because they are nervous of other dogs milling around. Their meals may either be provided by you or you may choose camp food.

Room service is included with all boarding packages. For your dog’s safety and comfort, their lodge will be cleaned and disinfected daily, their pillows and beds re-fluffed, and their food and water bowls replenished.

Pet Eligibility

We frequently have pets board with us that have never boarded because owners are concerned about their care. Our environment gives them the freedom to travel and know their pets are in an environment similar to their home. Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® works with our clients to ensure the best possible health care for their animals. All animals are required to be spayed and neutered, fully vaccinated and in good health. Small and exotic pet guests must bring detailed instructions for care, appropriate habitat and food.

Before your pet is able to join in the fun, and for the safety of our other guests, Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® requires the following:

  • Completed application
  • Pet Evaluation
  • Hold Harmless Agreement
  • A one-time, non-refundable $10 application fee.
  • Proof from a certified veterinarian that vaccinations for Bordetella, Rabies and Canine Distemper Vaccines are up to date. Puppies must have their second set of vaccinations. Cats must be up to date on distemper and rabies vaccinations.
  • Dogs and cats must be at least 9 weeks old and in home 2 weeks prior to beginning Care-A-Lot Pet Resort’s® services.
  • All dogs and cats over the age of 7 months must be neutered or spayed.
  • Owners will need to certify that their pet(s) have not harmed or shown aggressive or threatening behavior towards any person or other pets.
  • Dogs must not be able to jump a 6-foot privacy fence.
  • Emergency contact information must be provided for the owner and someone who may act on the owner’s behalf.
  • Pets must have an ID tag.

For the safety of all animals and associates, and at the discretion of Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts®, some dogs and cats may not be permitted.
