Code of Ethics:

Many risks exist when you leave your furry angels in a boarding facility while you are away:

Leaving your pet in a boarding facility can cause undue stress to both you and your pet.

They can feel a sense of abandonment, especially if they were a rescue to begin with and had to spend part of their lives in a cage. 

The noises and smells of unfamiliar surroundings can scare them.

They are exposed to kennel cough and other diseases, and also parasites such as fleas, ticks, or worms. 

They may have to hold their “business” for over 12 hours (from late afternoon/early evening when the kennel tech leaves until morning time when they arrive back at work).
Plus, they are usually only let out twice during the day to relieve themselves and this is often just into an outdoor kennel with concrete floors. 
They receive virtually no exercise.

Boarding facilities are not open 24/7 and are usually closed on Sundays.  This may mean that you can’t pick your baby up until the day or two after you arrive home from vacation.  When you have a pet sitter, your babies are waiting for you as soon as you walk in the door!
They will receive lots and lots of individualized attention. 

If they do use the bathroom in their cage, they could sit in it for hours before someone notices.

 

I will never again board my pets!
