Hurricane Boarding Policy
If there is a call for VOLUNTARY evacuation or a Hurricane WATCH, we recommend that you consider making alternate arrangements for boarding. We will NOT accept any drop offs for boarding or daycare until evacuation orders are lifted. If your animal is already boarding with us, you will be contacted to suggest a transfer of your animal to an inland facility further from harm.
If there is a call for MANDATORY evacuation or a Hurricane WARNING, owners will be immediately contacted and advised to transfer their pets to a facility away from the track of the storm. The emergency contact will be used to pick up the pet in the event the owner is unable to return in a timely manner. All pets must be retrieved to allow our staff to evacuate safely.
During hurricane season you MUST have an EMERGENCY CONTACT that is willing and capable of picking up your pet from boarding in the event of a MANDATORY evacuation.
Hurricane season: June 1st – November 30th
Ease your concerns about leaving your pet behind while you’re away: Let our staff take care of him or her. We can accommodate any special care or needs your dog or cat might have. Just let us know when you make the reservation.
We provide amenities such as clean bedding and food and water bowls, but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer. You can also bring toys and other personal items that are washable. We will administer any needed medication and follow your specified feeding regimen. (Alternately, we can provide food and treats for no extra charge, although eating their own food tends to agree better with most boarded pets.) In addition, we can provide grooming services before you pick up your pet.
Veterinary technicians regularly check on the pets, and our kennel staff monitor the boarding area. You have the added benefit of knowing that one of our clinicians will promptly begin treatment if your pet gets sick during his or her stay. We can also arrange for one of our veterinary team members to provide overnight monitoring for senior pets or those with certain health issues.
To keep all our patients as healthy as possible, we require pets that are boarding with us to have current rabies and distemper vaccinations, along with other species-specific vaccinations. We also require that most vaccinations be given at least 2 weeks before boarding. Please call us for more information.
